    Obviously, Scott Pioli does. All I remember is that he cost a preseason game.

    CJ. Yes, i do seem to recall his playmaking abilities;)

    How about Bam Childress? (as long as we're going down memory lane) Where did he end up? Is he still in Philly?

    I would begin by saying Belichick kept him instead of Chad Jackson last year. Which probably is more an indictment of Jackson.

    Not according to Yahoo!'s roster:
    Philadelphia Eagles - Roster - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

    Hasn't caught a pass since playing vs. Miami in the Flutie Dropkick Game in '06. I guess everyone hopped off the Bamwagon. :(

    C.J. has strung together a remarkably long career on the fringes of the NFL. More power to him.

    Side question... Pioli seems to be signing a lot of former Pats which is fine, but shouldn't the new coach be picking the players for his scheme? I mean, who's running the team here?

    It's collaborative, Haley and Pioli have identified the "type" of players they need, now Pioli goes and gets them, Haley then coaches them.

    The driect answer is that usually the GM has final decision on personnel decisions, but my guess is that first, Pioli hired a hed coach that fit the kind of system he wanted in place, and second, that he and Haley are working in tandem, as Pioli and Belichick did in New England.

    CJ Jones looked pretty darn good at times last year. Made some tough catches down the middle, stretched the field, and looked a heck of a lot better out there than he's getting credit for in this thread. He had his problems on punts, but as a receiver he looked quite promising from where I sat.

    Me, too. That's teh difference between NFL personnel people and fans. Personnel people look at a body of work, at factors and tendencies that indictate high or low ceilings, whereas we fans get hung up on one good or bad play, and let that one play define the players career.

    It's obviously more fun and less work being a fan :D

    Disable Jersey

    Summer of 2008 CJ and Chad Jackson were paired a lot in pre-season training camp practises that I attended. CJ always looked smoother in his routes and fielded punts better. Seemed to be the better player of the two, except in physique. Yah, I remember CJs regular season debacle.

    It's smart for Pioli in rebuilding mode to sign low cost players like CJ who obviously DO have some talent and then let summer camp weed out those who have hit their development ceiling.
