I believe it. I say big kudos to the FO. They had everyone played.

All that matters is what they told him behind closed doors.

Re: 2009 NFL Draft Chat/Discussion

Wow... Rey is going behind Laurinitis. It has to be Rey's lack of discipline- tendency to over-pursue cutback lanes killed him against smaller, fast running backs. NFL defenses cannot risk drafting someone on hitting ability alone- he's got to play within a system with the speed of offensive skill at the next level (he could get away with it in college, especially with Cush and Matthews doing the "boring" work next to him).

As a Trojan, I hope he proves everyone wrong with whatever team takes him... but I'm glad we didn't (Lavar was enough).

Crazy, I know.
It will probably come out that we tried very hard to get Sanchez, but the Jets offer was too much to overcome. After we couldn't have Sanchez, they focused on the task at hand, and that was Orakpo.
Thank you Jets for taking the decision out of our FO hands!

I think if that's true, it should come out in the coming weeks. I'd love to hear JC say that D$ and VC came to him with this plan 3 weeks ago.

I would like to recognize CRedskinsRule, 53Fan, and 724Skinsfan. They saw the smoke screen for what it was. Good job guys!

After intensively studying the Jason Candle Geico ads I really don't think Campbell could pull off that kind of acting.

Obviously it wasn't anything special considering Campbell came out publicly to tell everyone he wanted a trade if a QB was taken.

I doubt they did, in fact, I still hold the belief that after Cutler they told him the basic plan of bluffing, and left it at that. Yeah he might need his ego massaged, but mostly that will be Zorn's job. Remember Zorn BENCHED Hasselback for a year before he played at a pro bowl level. I am sure he can use this to motivate and help JC.

Man, even when it comes out alright, we still bitch among ourselves about who was right about something that was all speculation.

No he didn't! That was always a rumor without evidence or legs. I'm guessing that VC leaked that rumor.

Nice pick for Steve Spagnuolo's new defense in St. Louis with Laurinaitis.
But he went further, saying that they had called the 5 teams ahead of us to trade, now I may not agree with doing that, but it certainly is verifiable proof, along with the speed of the pick, to say yes this IS who we really wanted.

Campbell holds the cards now. He'll be a FA next year and will surely stick it to ol' Danny boy if they decide to FINALLY resign him. Shitty (and old) Qb's like Delhomme are getting paid BIG bucks so Campbell should get much more, if not from us, from another team.
I'm sure our FO is going to try to spin this (it did work) for the best but I think they cut Campbell pretty deep. First Cutler then Sanchez. How much disrespect can a guy take?
