    Traded for Mark Simoneu huh? Between him and Shanle, I guess that officially scratches the Saints off of the Edwards lottery.

    Simoneau is a good LB, but the Eagles needed a WR desperately. I think it's a fair trade for both sides because of what the Eagles needed but the Saints got the better deal in the end, because they got a LB and a potential first day pick. I've never been all that impressed with Stallworth.

    I wonder what the Patriots were offering... Branch, maybe?

    I doubt it, if we had offered Branch, I think the Saints would have jumped all over it. My guess is we were trying to unload Beisel and who can blame the Saints for running the other way?

    Not to mention scratching off the official Saints announcement that Stallworth is not on the trading block.

    Good call, I didn't even think of Beisel.

    That 2002 class of receivers is one contentious bunch! Lelie, Branch, Walker, Stallworth - all associated with the word "trade" in some way. :)

    Makes you nostalgic for the old team-player generation like Keyshawn Johnson and Terrell Owens.

    What is it with receivers???

    You know I've asked that question a lot lately. Whether it's endzone antics or causing team turmoil, per capita it seems that receivers as a whole cause a heck of a lot of aggravation.

    ...and this from guys who basically run fast and a catch a ball. :)

    Don't just blame receivers. What about the Bengals' Chad Johnson? What about Joe Horn? And team player Terry Glenn got his team to multiple Super Bowls, didn't he?

    ... with their body extended knowing that in less than a second one or maybe more 200 lb guys will launch themselves right at them in an effort to jar the ball loose, but, on the other hand, have the chance to have everyone in the stadium look at them.

    Does it really surprise you that it attracts nut cases?

    Good point! Maybe wide receivers tend to be manic-depressive types.

    Do you remember the thread in the summer "If you could play in the NFL what position would you choose?" We had, if I recall correctly, volunteers for just about every position EXCEPT wide receiver. Must mean something ...

    My take is this:

    All pro athletes need high levels of competiveness and confidence in order to succeed. They have to *want* the ball, and feel like they've got what it takes to make good things happen when they get it.

    Well, a #1 RB is going to get his touches, a starting QB is going to get plenty of chances to throw the ball. Guys on the offensive line and the whole defense are doing their thing every snap they're on the field.

    A WR will only get so many throws a game. They're not in control of when they can do their thing -- they rely on the QB to throw them the ball. I wonder if their massive egos are some sort of compensation for not getting the 20+ touches/attempts a start RB/QB would get a game.

    I'd play long snapper. Can play forever and you're still making at least 500 grand a year for 3 plays a game and maybe to make a snow angel.

    Also... fanball had this to say...

    "This trade could also lead to the release of Todd Pinkston, Jabar Gaffney, or both – news that shouldn't affect fantasy teams but is mildly notable."

    Those two guys might be upgrades or at least stopgaps that are better than what the Patriots currently have. Maybe.
