lets sign him!

Imagine the kind of uproar we'd see here if we were flipped with them in that deal. People overreact to Arrington like crazy, they'd burn this mother****er down!

Well that's one season later than I thought he would be. I guess it took a new coach. Didn't even let his softness play in training camp. He's done.

IIRC, 2003 was the year Shanny got greedy and screwed up the deal with the Ravens who went with NE and got their '03 #45 and next year's #1 which turned out to be Vince Wilork all for Kyle Boller. I think #45 turned out to be another bust Bethal Johnson

The guy had so much potential physically, but absolutely no motor whatsoever. Thankfully, we've got Clady to more than replace him. Even if Clady came from a community college trying to pass itself off as a real university.

He's as bad a 1st rounder as Middlebrooks, even Nash. The only difference is, they didn't force Nash on the field ... we had better alternatives. Mike forced George onto the field, at least until Cornell Green came to town.

Is it amazing how fast our OT's went from pure crap to pure gold?

I think the move was written into Matt Stafford's contract.
