Darren Howard also 86'd for rest of the season!

Lost in all the excitement of the Brook's demotion is the news that Darren Howard will be inactive for the rest of the season. Haslett also stated that Howard is probably done in New Orleans. Just another example of the shrewd player management our FO is known for. A year ago we could have gotten something of value for Howard. Now we couldn't trade his ass for a case of beer to make the sight of Bouman in the starting lineup tolerable. At least with Bouman starting we should have no problem locking up a top 3 pick. Hopefully next up on the chopping block, John Carney.

Confirmed. I just heard the Haslett press conference again.

The positive of this situation is that Will Smith will no longer be on the bench. Thankfully, he had been logging more and more snaps as the season went on. He is by far our best defensive player right now. Smith should be a pro-bowler for years to come. If only we could get Grant back on track, we might actually have that feared defensive end combo we've been hearing about all year.

Actually, there was a lot of talk that the Cowboys were willing to give their second, but we wanted Dat with it, or pick #20 in the first round and they refused. Also, there was a LOT of talk that Philly offered pick #31 for him, again we refused. So that's two teams right there. Looks like a King's ransom at this point.

Hell the first misconception is that we have a Front Office. Most of those guys have never come out of the outhouse long enough to tell if the sun is up or not.

FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND THIS PAST OFFSEASON THE FRONTOFFICE WANTED A MIDDLE TO EARLY FIRST ROUND PICK FOR HOWARD. SEVERAL OFFERS CAME FROM LATE FIRST ROUND PICKS WHICH THEY TURNED DOWN. NOW THEY'LL HAVE TO WORK FAST AND DEAL HIM SO THEY WON'T HAVE TO FRANCHISE HIM AGAIN.
