Revis and Mankins Not Happy
 
[url=http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/news/story?id=5284871]Darrelle Revis of New York Jets sits out some plays to protest deal - ESPN New York[/url]

But the bigger story could be Logan Mankins, there'll be a story up on it soon but he's going to sign his tender today which could expedite his trade.

Mankins has said he doesn't want to play for the Pats anymore and wants to be traded, and the Pats apparently are willing to move him.

not sure how old mankins is but if the pats want a 2nd rounder and he's around 26 or so then i'd consider it.

also revis looks like a baby. if you don't want to practice then stay the hell home and cry to your agent about your contract. if you're going to get 12 mil a year for playing cornerback and you turn it down then you need to go bag groceries or something.

Shanny, trade Portis for Revis & a 2nd rounder! :)

Good player, that Logan Mankins. Hard to imagine him having as much success -- and as many pro bowls -- elsewhere as in New England. He has long been the best piece of a very competent line, along with a great technician in Dan Koppen at Center. Not too many other places he can go to the status quo.

The Broncos and Chiefs could be a destination, with the Chiefs being most likely.

So he is on the same level we have here

[quote=warpaint;706341]So he is on the same level we have here[/quote]Well, he'd instantly be our best lineman, but I think we're already trying to develop Trent Williams in that role, so there's not a good reason to go out and grab a veteran in the role of line leader.

I mean, he'd be an easy fit at RG on this team, but our system is different than NEs, and he wouldn't really fix the problems on the line, so much as he would just upgrade a single position on the interior.

If that would be the case I would have to go get him you have to, not for LT but I've got plenty of concern on the line. Shouldn't you put him next to Trent so you solidify the left side. Not only does it help Trent but it helps McNabb's blindside.

It's time to develop some of our own players and save draft picks. One of the young guys is going to step up among Edwin Williams, Chad Rhinehart, Eric Cook, and Kory Lichtensteiger. Shanans history with offensive lineman favors this. In the meantime I'll venture that Big Mike could easily have a great year and we all know Dockery's going to be solid.

The main thing we have to worry about right now is the RT spot. Artis Hicks might be fine for this year however we're going to have to learn if Selvish Capers can develop to see weather or not a draft pick will need to be used on a RT in next years draft. Probably around the 3rd round.

At the very least though we now have depth so if injuries hit us again we won't have to go through the same train wreck we went through last year.

Now this gives me comfort. I like your take on what we have right now. I agree with you on devolping our own guys. The thing that worries me is the RT also I'm not sold on M.Williams for some reason, its in my gut or something hopefully its just indigestion.

At 28 I'd say we should pass. Not that 28 is too old for an guard but we have Rinehart sitting there and like Thomas and Kelly this guy either needs to become a starter now or find employment elsewhere in 2011.

Revis was asked if he'd settle for $1 more than Asomugha. He smiled.

"It can be 50 cents more," he said. "Just give me 50 cents more and we'll be okay."

WHAT A DOUCHE. Just because you're the best that extra few million will make you happy?!

Yeah that kind of stuff is wild. Instantly saying he's better after his 3 years and deserves more.. some teams have more money to put towards an individual position.

And with Mankins wanting something like Jahri Evans who gets like 8/year and 7/year isn't enough. Kind of wild, I guess when you're one of the best you can do that though.
