MUTHAFUCKA, are you high!? A 3rd round pick?! For DeSean Jackson?!
I got my Ray Rice mask and I’m waiting in elevators for Howie Roseman.
I was good, wasn’t I? They signed Special Teams players while other teams signed starters, and I let slide didn’t I? “Maybe they have a plan!” I said to myself. “Perhaps there is a diagram. Let us be patient as we partake of our beverage.”
I played it cool.
But if they trade DJax for chicken feed, I live near the Girard Street on-ramp to 95, so the NovaCare Center is less than a 15 minute ride from my house. I’m not above shouting at the building from Broad Street from the roof of the Jeep. Oh man, I’m goin’ through it! I’m not even putting up a poll today, because I can’t narrow the field of questions down.
Look, I’d already written two articles already about trading DJax. Today writing about ‘how I FEEL’ makes a third, and tomorrow writing ‘what I THINK’, will make a fourth. So I’m open to discussions on moving any player. But like when we unnecessarily surrendered a 5th round pick for what would have been a free Darren Sproles, I don’t like the notion of my team getting hosed. It would make more sense to move him for a player than a 3rd round pick.
I also don’t like the impact it could have on Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy. DJax kept Safeties out of the box and helped to free up Riley Cooper. If we get rid of him it’ll fundamentally change what Foles is expecting in 2014. That could hurt the Offense. Or maybe not. (More on that one tomorrow.)
But right now…this situation has me hotter than fish grease.
