    Everyone's happy to get out ... it's what they're supposed to say.

    Bledsoe, Law, Milloy were happy also ... so is Vrabel - playing like a kid again they say.:rolleyes:

    This is a self serving comment, by an otherwise competent Gaspar. Woods was an UDFA college DE trying to transition to an OLB. What was he expecting from him. Gaspar knows that he spent most of his first year on the PS, and most of his second year on STs. He also knows that he started only 2 games before going on the IR last year; so IMHO how many sacks he has had prior to this year is pretty irrelevent....and Gaspar KNOWS IT. He's just trying to create the IMPRESSION that a pass rushing need exists, when we don't know it really does. Neither Crabel nor Woods have had sufficient time to make any clear judgement on what level of pass rushers they are going to be.

    If we win the Lombardi this year I think at least a thread from the football on the Lombardi trophy should be sent to Al Davis to put in his Raiders trophy showcase which right now has some serious spider web issues.

    Thanks--thought I might have been reaching a bit with that, but good to know it hit the mark. (I had this image of Derrick Burgess, standing in the rain like Andy Dufresne, reaching for the sky with a look of pure happiness on his face...)

    Going from the Raiders to the Patriots must feel like finding out Rosie O'Donnell dumped you, and then you immediately get a call from Megan Fox...
