Re: Shockey

Uhhhh. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I certainly hope not. Shockey is an attitude problem, waiting to happen. I like his spirit, but he is a MAJOR distraction. Great player when healthy, but I don't know about this one.

Re: Shockey

We have no one left but Mark Campbell. If the $$$ is right, I say pull the trigger and keep off incentive laden contracts.

Re: Shockey

I have no doubts about his ability, its just his attitude and the attention that he thinks he deserves. Its funny how Eli Manning grew up all of a sudden when Shockey went down with the injury...all that being said, i would probably still take him.

Re: Shockey

i would take him for 2 reasons..

1. he just wants to win..the guy is passionate about winning, you have to give him that.. he calls out everyone b/c he wants to win and everyone blasts him for it..

2. he is better then any TE we have had in forever.. immediate impact on the offensive side of the ball.. huge target over the middle and it will open holes up for colston on the outside and running the slants that he does so well

Re: Shockey
