I\'d really like a trade involving Simon. That woud help both teams. Hugh Douglas is getting long in the tooth, and they could have a nice rotation at DE.A fresh Kersey is no joke.

We would benefit by a stout young DT helping the run D. Then, we could concentrate on LB and SS n the draft. Simon sounds better than Woodson or Buchanon coming over

Wow, Howard for Simon, interesting. Very. The only thing that concerns me is Philly has not been able to work a long term deal for Simon, thus the talk he may not be there much longer. I wonder what his demands are. And who his agents are.

P.S. Can we throw Sully in too and they throw in a cheesesteak? Seems fair.

Howard for Simon sounds great. As far as a long term deal goes, it doesnt really make him bad, we cant sign Howard to a long term deal, but he is being professional about it. Is Simon threating to hold out?
I wouldnt be too upset if we threw in a 4th rd or later to get it done.
Also Howard for the 31 or 35 is better than any other offer I\'ve heard. I would miss Howard but we need to get the most out of this deal that we can.

Ahh....ya had to get greedy.

Howard and 16 for 31, 35 and a 2006 first rounder.....WOW.

The Simon for Howard deal sounds more feasible. I could live with that.

Good players can have unrealistic demands, such as is the case with Howard. Never thought I implied he was a bad guy, but it has to be a concern if a team with more cap room than us can\'t get him on a long term contract, may be a problem for us as well. And to some Howard\'s demands may not be unrealistic, but in the cap situation we are in they are, and that\'s why we can\'t get it done.

I just thought that maybe Simon was holding out. Howard is in no way a bad guy, I would love to be able to keep him, but this is a business. Just as long as we get good value for him.
I\'d be happy with a high 2nd rd. I would probably prefer a first rd next year though. But i beleive that Haz and comp. want something more immediate.
