    GOOD - that whining team and their pathetic fans deserve nothing but the worst. When you pay top dollar for a vet from another team, it sure does tend to upset those that have been good soldiers.

    Maybe Spector can figure out a way to blame the NFL, Belichick and Spygate for these disgruntled players as well??

    This is one of the reasons why I think they should all sign incentive laden contracts. Rookies would get paid well, if they perform well. Vets who improve every year get a bump in salary. Atleast thats how it works with my raises:rolleyes:

    I can't blame Westbrook for wanting more money, but at the same time, I get tired of hearing them whine about it.

    I wish some nutsy reporter would ask Westbrook, "Brian, if you feel that your contract should be adjusted because you're delivering a higher level of play than when you signed, shouldn't teams be able to go players not living up to their contracts and expect them to agree to a pay cut?"

    Somehow I know the answer to that question...

    I smell an implosion coming. This year really seems different from past ones. First as one poster noted, they upset the pay structure by breaking the bank for A. Samuel, who doesn't fit their style of defense. Secondly Westbrook and the secondary are not happy with their relative salary. McNabb either has or doesn't have a bad shoulder (to go with all the other wounded parts) and he's got a second round QB to look over his shoulder at and wonder......
    The Eagles are notorious with jettisoning players over age 30 ( or the age when a BB linebacker comes of age) and McNabb will be 32 this November. The window is closing and the Eagles are looking ahead to the Kevin Kolb era. When the transition comes, it will be ugly.............
