Players always say "it's a business" until they're given the business by the only team they've ever played for. Then those feelings come out. I would imagine it's only natural. I would cry if I got released and knew the end was near.
steve smith did the same thing. when jake delhomme got released he was actually pretty icy about it and kind of said the same stuff.
then the impossible happened to him and oh poo look out
Because these disgruntled players all have been given the impression by Hurney until 2012 that they have a right to be here and live off the fat of the land, and Gettleman has taken that away from them because overpaid complacent players don't win football games
have you ever noticed that the players who got the most pissed off when gettleman released them or let them walk were ones who played most or all of their careers with hurney as their GM
"Steve's had a great career," Gettleman told reporters in Indianapolis. "He really has. None of us are here forever."
Is NOT the same as saying "everyone is evaluated". He talked about Steve in past tense. He left it in limbo for weeks. That's Gettleman's fault. Saying otherwise is a complete lie, and the fact Gettleman hasn't done that with DeAngelo pretty much proves that.
maybe i just wasn't as massively butthurt by that as his fanboys. it's a different outlook i guess because i didn't think that steve smith was bigger or more important than the franchise.
This will be like the third year in a row that the falcons made some blockbuster signing and everybody poo their pants only for them to suck again because they can't protect their quarterback or stop a grocery bag floating in the wind.
oh boy it's the age old "wilson has no weapons and still wins teh games!1" argument
the discussion begins and ends with the fact that the seahawks' west coast system is night and day different from the panthers' coryell system with erhardt-perkins concepts. kearse, baldwin, and yes wilson would all suck in carolina because the kind of offense we run needs serious downfield speed to work the way it's supposed to.
for what it's worth i think cam would be awful in a west coast system too so all you huddle wolfpack fans can take it easy
