Donnie?

I was wondering your opinion of how Donnie is playing so far in the first two games. I think he played just OK on Sunday (6 tackles). Did GAWD make a huge mistake turning down a Third Rounder over a few measly hours missed on a weekend deadline by the Saints?
No.

The team does not need distractions or Mickey Loomis thinking his balls are bigger than A.J.'s.

Now the price is a second rounder and if Donnie plays out the season, good otherwise we have more than competant back ups.

The Week 6 trading deadline looms.

GAWD's stubborness has phuc'd us again.
What are you biatching about as your beloved Donna is still here?

What is up your *** now ?

I bet the deal offered was the fuc't up conditional on Stallworth getting signed to an extension which meant the 4th may be a third and Loomis is sending misinformation. Loomis is known as a SOB in negotiations.

In A.J. I trust because that mother fugger is possessed.

Stallworth was already signed in Philly when the 3d for Donnie was offered you nin-***-poop :lol:
No dude you are missing the extension part. Stallworth has not been signed to the "fabled extension" as he merely got signed. There was a stipulation if I remember correctly that during the year dependent on Stallworths performance, if the acquiring club exercised its right to re-do the deal and sign him to an extension, the fourth round pick is upgraded to a third round pick. Stallworth to my knowledge has not re-done his deal after he was acquired.

Comprende?

Oh OK...I get it...but I do not believe it
Then you believe Loomis offered up his own clubs Third round pick and it was not tied to the Stallworth deal? Rumor had it the deal involved Stallworth's compensation.

Isn't it funny how the more dominant our defense is, the less you notice Donnie...

:lol: True.

I'm not sure I even saw Donnie on the field versus the Titans. At least, his name wasn't mentioned that I can recall.

Donnie is indeed off to a slow start. Only leading the team in tackles. Will take him a few weeks to his lead like last year. Remember the closest tackler last year to him had less than half the tackles he had. He had twice as many tackles as the next highest tackler! 154 tackles vs. 77 for Godfrey. 2nd in the league in solo tackles with 114. Sorry, you don't get 114 solo tackles by being out of position. That is a fat number.

I don't get the heartburn against this guy. The man is quietly doing his job and pretty much now that the season started is keeping his mouth shut. Give him some credit.

We need him because we need the depth. As hard as this team hits and with teams like Baltimore and Pittsburgh coming up there are going to be some people banged up. The guy is smart and he will be get up some picks pretty soon with all that pressure upfront. He may be on the downside of his career but he is smart enough to adjust his game.

Your boy has indeep shut his yap but has grown quiet on the field. I want some noise. I want some pain to be inflicted. Where is the pain other than seeing Donna collect his weekly paycheck ?

Not easy defending my boy when everyone hates his guts. But I'll try.

I think he wants a ring and isn't just punching checks. He will keep his mouth shut the rest of the season I am sure. I think realizes his job is to hang tight in case our other guys overpursue and prevent big gainers.

As long as the 'D is this domininant, I want the same 11 starters back there, with the same rotation. No sense replacing Donnie right now.

Donnie is so replaceable it's not even funny.

I GUARANTEE YOU ALL, whoever takes his spot on the field will lead the team in tackles in his first full year. GUARANTEED.

I agree to the extent if someone dangles a 2nd round pick, you have to pull the trigger. You just have to pull it with our scouting staff.

Our back ups are just as good if not better than Donna.
