Anyone remember him as an intern on the Howard Stern Show?

I thought SmootSmack was Howard Stern.

I did a very quick search to see if I could find a clip online and could not. I did find it funny that Pierce interning for Howard Stern is part of Antonio's wiki page: [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Pierce]Antonio Pierce - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/url]

I think it had Howard going easy on him during the entire Plaxico thing. If memory serves, Howard started going hard, and then Gary reminded him that Antonio had been in.

i always said letting him go to sign Trotter was a horrible horrible move. He was one of those true Redskins, that would do anything and was an incredible MLB, a leader, and a coach on the field. I would like to see him get involved with an NFL team as a coach. He is extremely smart and willing to put in the hours to be successful.

great job AP

It didn't happen that way. AP's last season here was in 2004, Lemar Marshall took over at MLB in 2005. Trotter was already back in Philly in 2004.

Didn't GW say he didn't need him or something like that. Wasn't there a Michael Barrow sighting in a redskins uni somewhere in this time frame too. I was so distraught over the last say 10 years my memory sometimes fails me. Regardless, my point was letting AP walk was NOT a good move and it took a few years to finally get a capable MLB in the burgandy and gold.

The Skins tried to re-sign him, GW wanted him back but the Giants offered up more up front money in their deal.

Marshall filled in quite well in 2005 but fell off in 2006, enter Fletcher in 2007.

My son, the Giants fan, has one jersey, AP's, (well he may have Eli's:() because he was a Skin and a Giant. I liked him and wished we had kept him.

Good luck AP

when did the michael Barrow project blow up in our face? Wasn't that somewhere when AP left?? I thought I remembered going crazy about signing him because he was like 34 or 35 or something. I could be wrong, but I remember he was extremely durable during his time in NY then was always hurt and never really played a down with us.
