    Re: AD is out!

    Wonder how long before he is a Jet? If he goes somewhere and has a great year we will know he was not trying here.

    Re: AD is out!

    Over/Under is 2 weeks after he signs with his new team when the public bashing of BB will occur. SMY already has the exclusive.

    :rocker::singing::D Best move of the offseason, IMO!! He can go infect another team's locker room.

    Wouldn't be suprised.....

    If the guy would have just gone with the program here, it wouldn't have come to this.

    Re: AD is out!

    I bet he has a career year. Regardless he needed to go. Players like him make large contracts a great risk.

    I sort of figured you'd suggest we "sign the beast".

    Re: AD is out! Thomas released today.

    I know he was a "bad character" guy but I was hoping they could work out their differences - still think he could be a productive player...

    We could got at least a 7th pick this year, oh well, at least he is not here to complain.

    Re: AD is out! Thomas released today.

    Happy days are here again! Happy day, happy days are here again,
    Happy days are here again

    I thought we could "trade him even up for Branch", LOL, or for a 5th or something?

    Negatory! Cut out this cancer and did it quick and clean.

    On a serious note, I think BB has learned from this that he needs to DEVELOP talent, even if it takes a while, rather than buy high priced FAs. Cheap FAs who help round out the team are one thing, but Thomas was a bust of all busts for the money he was paid.

    I think he learned to go for guys who are leaders on the field and love football rather than trading up for Bethel or Cjack, remember them?

    Thank God. I don't care what he does in NY or wherever, I just want stupid Jetson Boy off the team. Our lockerroom is looking better after the draft, this just adds to it.

    Doubtful.... one would think we hung onto him this long hopping to get something for him during the draft. No dice so cut him a few days after the draft.

    Re: AD is out! Thomas released today.

    Wish I could share the same excitement as some of you. But all this does is confirm the signing was an utter failure and create another need at OLB, an already weak position. I was really hoping he and BB could patch up and the guy would turn it around this season but guess he was really that bad last year. So who's our OLB's now? TBC, Cunningham, Woods, Ninkovich?

    Re: AD is out!

    Not this one. Cut the be-atch.

    I saw him in December at Spain in Warwick, RI. I didn't want to bother him during dinner so when he was leaving I got up and told him I'm a big Pats fan and wished him luck and just wanted to shake his hand. I stuck my hand out and hHe looked at me like I was wearing a Klan mask and kind of huffed and gave me a fist bump instead.

    Later I found out that he had been sent home from practice that day for being late! He was drowing his sorrows in margaritas, the woman.

    Re: AD is out! Thomas released today.

    That's exactly the point. We have a good thing going, adding vets like Holt and Crumpler who have reputations as good locker room guys. Vince, Tiny, Mayo, we are building a good thing we don't need this piece of crap in it.

    Re: AD is out! Thomas released today.

    EXACTLY!! I was thinking the same thing. All he did was complain and make excuses. I don't want him anywhere near these guys. I don't care how much talent people think he has. He's is a cancer. He can go spread his poison somewhere else.

    Re: AD is out! Thomas released today.

    -AD was not a bust in year 1 of his deal
    -AD was not a bust in year 2 of his deal. He was on pace to have a decent year until he broke his arm
    -AD's performance in 2009 was uneven and with that and became more locker room problem (w/o guys like Bru and Colvin to keep him quiet).

    I think you are putting too much emphasis on the relationship-aspect of the BB/AD dynamic. Patching things up would never have gotten AD to perform better.

    I'm of the mindset that AD is a prima-donna and can't handle the fact that BB and the staff feel that his skills have deteriorated to the point of his inability to perform at the level they need and commensurate with his salary level.

    Does he have to go through waivers? If so I hope the Raiders claim him and he gets to wallow with that losing franchises possession for the next 2 years.

    Though I am glad that this chapter is closed, I wish he was packed away as a package deal outside the conference.
