As much as it pains me to see him leave, we got damn good value for him. Arguably he and Lelie are similar in performance value, and they are the same age and contract status. We did better for Donte than Denver did for Lelie. Simoneau and a guaranteed 4th, possibly a 3rd is pretty good actually. Simoneau can start or is very solid depth and Philly's pick will likely be better than Washington's as well.

We made out good on him.

well if it turns into a number 3 and you add a lin backer at least he didn't go for nothing. we got a good deal if it turns to a 3. i think

Yeah, I bet he is one of Reid's all-time favorites! This is a guy who was given the starting job by Reid in 2003 and lost it right back in 2004 halfway through the season because they could not stop the run! Damn! Why doesn't Payton see that we need a (some) CB's? The run defense has not been nearly as bad as the pass defense. Oh well, maybe next year he will sign 10 or 15 CB's like he did with Safeties and LB's.

See ya D-Stall. It was nice knowing you. I sure hope the Saints know what they are doing. I would not be surprised if Devery Henderson is next to go...

it is going to take time sanders. it just is man. we havea lot of wholes on the d side of the ball. we added another line backer and a d-tackle. we just have wholes man it is going to take time. if they work out a contract for him we get a third round pick next year. add that with simneaux (however you spell that) and how can we really complain about the trade. at least he didn't walk for nothing.

Henderson doesn't have enough value to move right now. Only way he's leaving is by being cut I think.

Honestly who does this come as a shock to? The writing has been on the wall for quite a while now. If you thought all of that talk about Payton not liking him and Stallworth being on the bubble was all fluff, then now you know better. I think a conditional 4th is perfect compensation and I would have accepted that by itself. Simoneau....i'm not crazy about him but he's better than some of what we have, which isn't saying much.

Stallworth's departure will open up opportunities for Colston and Hass who have shined thus far. I like the move. Hopefully this will help rid the team of that "sense of entitlement" that some players on our team might have just because of where they were drafted.

I do wish Stallworth well and hope he does well in Philly. I will be watching more Eagles highlights, but I think we made the right move in dumping himi.

Neither I.
How long do you wait for a WR to learn to catch the ball?!?!
