Re: Eagles release Pro Bowl LB Trotter....

If Trotter comes to the Saints he's instanly the best MLB on the roster. His know how would make up for any athletic short comings. He would add a Nastiness to a defense the badly needs it. He would be a great leader on a defense that lacks leadership at the position. He would probably make Fujita a pro bowler by how he would funnel running backs into tackling lanes. It would make us very deeep at a position that I think we're very weak at. It would be a great move. Even though I don't think it would happen.

Jerimiah Trotter is a throw-back run stopping linebacker. His attitude alone would be a great addition to this team.

The best conerback tandem in the league reside in the N.O.

Bleeding Green Nation :: Eagles release Jeremiah Trotter

I'm on the fence here . . . and this is my specialty. I'ld love to have the Axeman in here from 2 years ago. But now? Worrisome issues in regard to knees, health, catching up with the playbook this late into camp, playing back-up (behind Mark Simoneau AGAIN, no less), and why the Eagles have parted ways with him. Trotter from 2004 - 2005 would be a Pro-Bowl MLB run-stopping machine for us. Some of you guys might be right, that bringing him in would instantly make him the best and most experienced MLB on the roster, but would it be good for the team and the chemistry? I don't see Payton pulling the trigger on this one.

I AGREE we need someone like him and he is better than what we got

Bring Trortter In?

Im not sure the saints need the man, he isnt old by any means, he is only 30 if I recall right, so there has to be something other than the notion that he is simply too old for the game of football. I think he is a year or two younger than Porter who just signed a stupid contract with MIAMI. I also remember reading Philly told him its time for him to retire, so more is going on with this, than it seems

Re: Eagles release Pro Bowl LB Trotter....

Here is the thing that really worries me...the Eagles have been hands down the best team in the league over the last 5 or 6 years at keeping the right players. They always lock up their young guys long term, they always know what type of players to target in free agency, and they never second guess themselves when they let someone go. So for the Eagles to choose to go with Omar Gaither over Jeremiah Trotter, then it means something. I cant think of one person that they let go that went on and even matched his numbers with a different team.

It's all in the reflexes.

Thats because there isnt one Bubba, Reid seems to have a sense of who to let go, who to bring in, and how to improve his team.

Although I do agree with you that they have been one of the best teams in the last 5 or 6 years, I have to disagree with the way they let go decent players in the process. The Eagles are known through the league for allowing good veteran players go in favor of younger less expensive players. If the Eagles feel that they can get production from a younger player or close to the vet, than they just release or let the veteran player walk. Case in point, take Hollis Thomas for example. They traded Thomas in favor of a younger less expensive player, but Hollis proved to be a very important player in our run last year, a run that included two victories over the Eagles. As far as a player during better after leaving the Philadelphia just look at Hollis numbers.

Year______Team_______Gm__GS_TTL_STl_Ast___Sck_PDef
2006 New Orleans Saints_12__12__43__35__8___3.5___2
2005 Philadelphia Eagles__16__12__35__27__8___0.0___3

From the above numbers Thomas did much better as a Saint than as an Eagle. And I believe if the Saints were to sign Jeremiah Trotter they would get the same type of production at the MLB position as they got from Thomas at the DT position.

Re: Eagles release Pro Bowl LB Trotter....

Can you imagine Philly coming here to face Dhani, Mark, Hollis and Trotter. Heaven forbid we picked up Corey Simon whom I think has already been picked up, not sure. We would beat Philly like they stole something. Vinegar in the veins that day.
