Why you gotta hate Danno? Let's love 'ol Reggie all the way to another ring baby.

LOL

Good attitude Harper, maybe now we can upgrade your roster spot cause you ain't all that. I'd like to see Sharper and Jenkins as a tandem and work Nate Bussey in there for next year.

Disagree LB. It totally ignores the other 15 regular season games, and ignores the great game he had that day too, IMO.

It pretty much says nothing.

You are right...I retract. It does not say it all. I should have posted a picture of him. HE LOOKS OLD!

...and I thought I might get a rise out of you...he he he.

NONE of us are going anywhere! MOST of these guys are leaving! Either now or later, they are out of here. Reggie's bank account will never see the 11 million that was ageed to in writing, 11 million - that's a lot of nickels. This is a job for these guys. The pain is the same whether east coast or west coast. The other intangibles get factored in, but at the end of the day, most of these guys have 10 years or less to make it happen, and then they are back to being regular Joe's. Hopefully with a pocket full of money.

Harper is probably the one guy who as a free agent this year is really replaceable. Usama took his spot for a couple games early in the season and played really, really well. Not to mention Jenkins and Robinson. Either one could play that spot and be really good.

I think Usama's time here is done. He hasn't improved much from year to year and has been burned consistently over the past couple of seasons. I no longer feel comfortable with him getting snaps at corner... and he hasn't showed me much of anything at safety either. He's also invisible on special teams.

The safety crop at SS in my opinion isn't strong... so I personally do not agree with you saying Harper is a guy that is really replaceable. He excels in our system and has gone to multiple Pro Bowls. It's not as easy replacing that as you seem to make it out to be.

I'd love to have Weddle here... who in my opinion is a better overall safety and can play both spots along with spot nickel duty in some packages. But, he's going to get a massive contract on the open market this offseason.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Harper is like Strato on lead guitar... both deserve a bigger payday.
