Goodbye Ellerbe!

I wish he could have stayed healthy. I think this hurt the D. Ellerbes presence was felt by the D when he was on the field.

Pretty much sums it up for me as well.

I wonder if Ellerbe is going to retire after the cut..?

I doubt he will retire. He will go somewhere else and give them 6-8 games a year. I think it is smart to do before camp especially since I was wrong in thinking we weren't saving any money. We are so it is a smart move.Doesn't cost us much to cut him. Let the guys that are going to be here battle it out. I am interested in what Bighill has to offer. Maybe now that Anthony is back healthy he starts to put it together. Should be interesting. I like Anzalone a lot too.

Shoot. Well at least we got one last good stretch out of him last year; without him we probably would have took 2+ more losses.

Well another brilliant trade blows up in their face, wasn't the knock on him that he was damaged goods when the trade went down?

This is why I refuse to get rid of my old lincoln town car...I've learned that reliability is sometimes worth more than the sexy car that's always in the shop and hard to work on.

Heard he came to camp fat(ter) as well. When he was on the field, our winning percentage went up drastically (similar to jabari greer stats if I remember correct). Shame he couldn't, though. And, that's what we need most so good riddance.

With a bad foot I can understand added weight.

I don't since adding or shedding weight has so much more to do with diet than running or lifting. How an NFL player can't keep weight with all the tools they have at their disposal just baffles me.
