Unforgiven

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I am still pissed about Sproles. My gut retches when I see Packer / Viking / Saints film mentioning Sharper. I don't care about Graham. I just can't forgive my team for letting Sproles go. Who is on your unforgiven ...

I don't care about Graham.

I just can't forgive my team for letting Sproles go.

Who is on your unforgiven list?

Yeah I agree. I didn't like the Sproles thing. But I understand it.

Re: Unforgiven

IT USED TO DRIVE ME NUTTS OVER THE YEARS OF CUTTING OR TRADING SOME PRODUCTIVE SAINTS, TIME HEALS ALL' U WILL SEE. BUT I SEE WHY SPROLES WAS RELEASED/TRADED HE JUST GOT HAMMERED TO MANY TIMES AND HIS RECOOP TIME WAS GETTING LONG IN THE TOOTH ALSO. IT WILL HAPPEN TO MORE SAINTS ALONG THE WAY, HECK IT HAPPENED TO SHOCKY, JUST BEAT UP -BODY/BRAIN. IT WAS ARE WILL HAPPEN WITH J GRAHM. JUST WAIT. I'M WORRIED ABOUT B. COOKS. HE MUST STAY HEALTHY, WE NEED 80+ GRABS FROM HIM.

Didn't mind seeing Sproles go but back when we traded Ricky Williams I was livid.

La'Roi Glover. The man should have retired a Saint. The fact that he went on to play for the cowgirls made it all the more gut wrenching when they let him walk. He's still one of my all time favorite Saints.

Man, our backgrounds into Saints' football are eerily similar...

I still occasionally take out my Williams' rookie jersey and to remind me where it all began.

Glover was a shame too, one of my all time favorite D players.

More recently... Tom Johnson.

...and they better hold on to Hicks or there'll be hell to pay.

Re: Unforgiven

I allowed the Packers to be my second favorite NFC team until they wouldn't resign ***Woodson*** and Driver retired. In fact, I am still taking nominations for that coveted "second favorite NFC spot".

Woodson wanted to play and he was cheap to keep. He did not want to go to GRB in the first place ...however he filled the D's leadership vacuum and won his first ring.
He is back in Oakland. He will be in the HOF some day...

I was happy when the Pack picked up Peppers to fill the leadership void. However, it doesn't reinstate the Pack back to number two.

And I am never forgiven by folks up der in deez parts when I quietly shut dem dere Saints opinions DOWN.

Examples: Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung finished careers as a Saint.
(I don't need to go into details because jaws drop.)

When was the last time Packers won in New Orleans? ohhh, that would be the Superbowl against the Patriots...almost twenty years ago.

Snap, placement, kick by Hartley, and it is — AND IT'S GOOD!
