We aren't short on DB's. We have a few nicked up. We'd have to cut someone to bring this guy on. No thanks.

Greer is coming back, like any second now. Wait, I think I can hear his car pulling up outside right now.

If he can't impress the Eagles I doubt he would impress the Saints.

Re: Eagles cut second round pick DB Jarrett - we are short on DB's

When the Eagles released safety Jaiquawn Jarrett on Tuesday, it was an admission of failure: You don’t cut a player just 16 months after taking him in the second round of the NFL draft unless you know you never should have drafted him in the first place.

Now Eagles coach Andy Reid has said that drafting Jarrett was a mistake, and it was his mistake.

“That’s my responsibility. I misevaluated that,” Reid said, via Philly.com. “I think one of the key things is when you make a mistake for your system that you correct it and you can’t let your ego get in the way of that. You just can’t do it.”

Saying the Eagles screwed up when they took Jarrett isn’t just second-guessing: He was declared a reach by many draft analysts at the time. Reid said the reach was his, although he also indicated that he still likes Jarrett and thinks Jarrett might catch on with another team.

“I have final say on all the picks,” Reid said. “You’re going to find ones that fit into your system and some that don’t. You’re going to be right sometimes, you’re going to be wrong sometimes. That doesn’t mean that the kid can’t play in this league for somebody.”

Perhaps Jarrett can play for somebody. But he hasn’t looked like he can play in the NFL during his time with the Eagles. Reid knows he has to take the blame for that.

I think from his comments Andy Reid is sounding like a dude who is going to retire after this year anyway, and is sick of the Philly fans, and is just doing that "Yeah, it was ME --so what, you got a problem with it, do ya buddy? You want a piece of this?" thing, exactly like when a big fat Philly tough guy gets out of his car and gets all in your face, shouting and poking you in the chest after hitting YOU in a fender bender car accident that was really HIS fault.

Nah, Andy has always fallen on the sword for his team, coaches, GM, name it. That's one of the things I like about him, he takes all the flack, all the time.
