    I am not a fan of his but he seemed to handle his situation in DC decently. The knock on him in DC was that he free lanced to much, so Greg Williams wouldn't play him. Not sure if I would like the signing or not, just curious what you guys thought. It definitly would be a headline grabber and his camp has been awfully quite thus far.

    he is a great talent and would be a great addition to the team, i hope we do it. BB took a chance on corey dillon and his bad rap; mabe we can get one more mis understood star.

    If I'm not mistaken, he plays outside. That would mean keeping Vrabel inside.
    I'm not sure if that's the way I'd go. If Arrington could play inside I'd be more interested. Something to think about though. Of course, Colvin and Arington on the outside, with Vrabel and Bruschi inside does'nt sound bad.

    No Jersey Selected

    How about Colvin and Vrabel outside, Bruschi and Ray Lewis inside?

    I believe Arrington is not maligned b/c of his attitude, but more because of the fact that he "freelances" a lot, which leaves a lot of his teammates out to dry. Not a good way to run a "scheme based" defense.

    Can you imagine? SCARY. I'm not sure how I feel about Lewis, but I do believe he has a lot of good football left in him.

    I think he signed with the Giants already, too. That's what I think.

    It was been posted here once or twice yesterday, but no official word of Arrington signing with the Giants as of yet.

    I am so sick of hearing this. Have you ever even seen him play a full game??? This argument comes from one writer who blew a coach's comment out of proportion. After watching this guy every week for four years while living in Skins land this is a bunch of crap. Ask any Skins fan how this guy plays each week when healthy. He is a beast. One poor comment and the media makes a huge label, just stupid. Be original and post what you know about a player, not take an opinion just because you read an article.

    Well apparently watching almost EVERY game each week on directTV and seeing what they were talking about makes me unoriginal.

    No doubt the guy is a beast, but he is a beast who does his own thing. Sorry. I don't think he would fit.

    Jesus people are cranky around here.

    It might be "original" to think other people might base their opinions on facts, and not what you assume they know or don't know.

    Arrington has always done his own thing. Even in college.

    That being said, he is a beast. He's incredible, and I'd love to have him on the Pats.

    Don't think that BB would shy away from a freelancer. If that freelancer had incredible abilities, and could change the game instantly, then BB would unleash him. That's all Arrington needs.

    How do I know BB could live with this: well, Lawrence Taylor wasn't exactly the most disciplined LB out there. He was a holy terror, and Arrington plays the same way.

    I doubt that you could ever come up with the idea that he freelances by yourself. i seriously doubt that you know the skins defense over the last four years so that you could call him out of position. The idea was implanted into your head and now it is what you try to see. There is nothing original about it.

    I can't believe some people would doubt BB's ability to shape this guy into a real player. I'm not a big fan, but the skills are there.

    Wow truth hurts. I love Monday morning QB's who know nothing of what they speak. I love it when data cannot be given to back up opinions. I love it when people take their ball and go home just because they cannot meet reality and logically work through their opinion. I am not saying I am always right, however bring some facts to the table instead getting your grove from the media.

    Great point Upstater. I went to many PSU games when Lavar was there.
    I've followed his career closely. He's a good guy not a publicity hound.
    A friend of mine coached his brother's basketball team. Lavar caused
    too big a stir when he went to the games. People would hound him for
    autographs throughout the game. He just asked my friend if he would
    give him the game tape so he could watch it. Very good family too.
    Father was Vietnam Vet who was wounded and has always had
    trouble walking since. Mom is an educator. He plays with a huge amount
    of brashness. But, that's it. Stays on the field.

    I've always wondered why Lavar was never told "sic em". The LT
    comparision is good. LT didn't worry about dropping into the flat and
    covering a te or a fb. PSU didn't do it. Lined him up on the same side
    of the field as Courtney Brown. I love Jerry Sandusky. But, that was
    the dumbest thing I've ever seen. He's been in a 4-3 in the pros. Where
    the olb does have more responsiblities than the elephant position in a
    3-4. He's never had that role in the NFL either. Line him up outside of
    our de's and point him at the damn qb! Let the offensive coordinator
    worry about him. Not worry about covering the flat. Sorry for rant.
    If you watched this guy closely. You'd love him.
