    Branch is being very stupid. Let's Trade Branch to San Diego for Donnie Edwards and San Diego's 2nd Round Pick.


    Thoughts?

    You wouldnt be able to get both Edwards and a #2. After what i saw last night, they better sign Branch. although i loved what i saw from the running game.

    Maybe a three then. I am not worried about the wr issue. with Mills, Watson, Graham, Thomas, reche maroney, faulk, Looking at BB/Parcells they never had great wr. most were very possession only

    Do you work for the front office we have plenty of weapons on the offensive side of the ball. Defense is where the weakness is especially at inside LB

    yes but have u ever in your life seen Donnie Edwards play? you heard "well hes unhappy there" you look at stats and pissed your pants

    well he was the weak link in Chargers run support..he allowed most yards compared to rest of front 7. Hes old..hes small..undersized for a 3-4. And we would be lucky if a team offered a 2nd rounder alone for Branch. Theres 10000000 trade possibilites involving Branch. but he wont go anywhere till next year

    you can say..
    "hey lets trade Branch for Lelie and their 5th rounder"
    Branch for Porter
    Branch for Charles Rogers and a 3rd!
    etc etc

    theres a lot of opporunties but you think were gonna let him get his way by granting him out and letting him get paid else where? Then any guy on our team who holds out will say..we'll i'll just wait till they trade me as i hold out.

    Naw..just be a little smarter

    Hes expected to hold out till week 10..thats what every holdout says..they will holdout as long as it takes ;)

    how many actually do? not many because sitting out for 3/4 of the season

    #1. Keeps you out of football
    #2. Just get fined more and more
    #3. Teams will look at you as a dick who is about the money

    Personally I think Branch is a solid #2 whose agent is being a totally inept. but who knows. As BB says, it is what it is.

    i wouldnt. rather franchise him and trade him next year. by giving him a way out to get his money..people will think were soft and if they hold out..they'll do what Deion did to get paid somehow

    We should trade Branch to Green Bay for Nick Barnett and Donald Driver and their first round pick.

    its repetitive...like someone made that thread..look for threads that have similar context instead of making 1. How many times do we need to discuss trading Branch? How many times do we have to talk about Edwards? It gets annoying seeing it over and over. I mean our preseason started..lot to discuss but to bring back the Edwards thing is annoying especially when we discussed it and when he is old/overrated

    I am really surprised Branch isn't playing yet.

    He's under contract. And who does he think he's dealing with?

    When it comes to confrontations John Wayne, James Bond and Don Corleone are pantywaists compared to Belichick.

    Ben Watson, Gus Scott, Ty Law, Lawyer Milloy, Terry Glenn, Drew Bledoe.

    He hasn't blinked yet.

    BB will pay your franchise salary next year with all the fine money he'll get from you.

    You'll end up carrying Ricky Williams Whizinator as you make a futile attempt at reentering the NFL from Canada.

    Deion, you make me quote a terrible song, but

    You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind etc..........

    This thread is a classic example of some innocent poster (Warren94) getting mugged by the mean-spirited and wrong (Remix6).

    If you don't like it, go to another thread. If it bores you so much, how come you are spending so much time and effort in this thread? And if you're going to throw stones at "newbies" don't be a pot calling any kettles black - - OK, bush league? (aside: does anyone else think it's funny that Remix is calling Warren94 a newbie? - he obviously doesn't understand the Christian calendar)

    And BTW, your KC Joyner stat on Donnie Edwards was already slam dunked here a few days ago. This ain't rotisserie baseball. Edwards is a lateral, cross the field, run 'em down-type LB. He is there to cover against the long gain. As mentioned - - Ben Watson has the WORST "yards per tackle" average on the Pats after the Champ Bailey play last year - - maybe Watson shouldn't have made the effort.

    Donnie Edwards is a central reason why SD had the BEST overall team D against the run in 2005. We could have used him in 2005 making his 4 yard tackles that Beisel and C. Brown were making after 8 yards.

    So you're 0 for 2 Remix. You're unnecessarily rude and you're trying to use rotisserie baseball stats in a football context. Go study your Bill James (I mean, KC Joyner) and learn politeness from Larry Luccchino.
