    And the trade for Jarrad Page makes sense now..

    Thats what I was afraid of

    I can't see the team letting Sanders go as well or all of a sudden our safety area becomes problematic

    Yup, that was my immediate assumption when I heard about the trade. Sanders sticks, IMO, he was too valuable at the end of last season after he replaced McGowan. And this has pretty much been the book on McGowan for his career so far: very injury-prone.

    Doesn't really bother me too much, aside from hoping that he recovers fully and quickly. Not like his skills are irreplaceable.

    I agree about Sanders. I've never been one to think that He'd be traded.

    I think Breer is spewing rumors about Sanders out of his own expectations

    Page looks to be a considerable upgrade over McGowan. The move makes even more sense now and assuming that it was a very low draft pick (maybe a 6th?) seems like a solid transaction.

    Yeah, to put it diplomatically, I don't put much stock in anything that Breer says until someone else confirms it. I started wondering if there might be something to the whole Sanders thing when Rapoport kinda-sorta got on board with it.

    I haven't seen much of page, but this doesn't surprise me. I think McGowan was considerably overvalued on this board. Only like him as much as I do because he's a UMaine alum.

    When was the last time we had this many IRs before the regular season? I know the secondary gets hit hard every year but that's usually with some games played:mad:

    I am afraid to think about what might happen during the season...

    You might be right, and it wouldn't be the first time.

    Page is poor in run support and is a different player than McGowan. I wouldn't expect him to be used in the same sort of in-the-box role.

    Could be the end of the road for McGowan, I believe he is an UFA at season's end.
