Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

We couldn't have traded him to someone for a 6th or 7th rounder? I think he'd be worth at least that to a team in need of some veteran experience.

I don't think we should assume egos got in the way. I think Marshall has/had a great relationship with our coaching staff.

It probably just came down to a numbers game and an injury that hasn't fully rehabilitated.

It's entirely possible that Marshall could clear waivers and rejoin the team at a later date.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

Maybe they decided for the money he was costing them Marshall wasn't significantly better than cheaper guys like Blades and Sartz (who also play teams, though I imagine Marshall did too right?)

Why not cut Marshall now, give him a chance elsewhere, give your own guys more playing time. And save some money to spend on Cooley and Taylor?

I know, I'm grasping for a reason here. I mean I don't think signing Godfrey is a bad move at all but cutting Marshall is pretty confusing, to say the least.

I bet Marshall winds up in Chicago (replacing Hunter Hillenmeyer) and thrives.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

For those of you that are saying it is a money thing, there are 5 non- starters that count more against the cap than Marshall's $1.1M

1) Mark Brunnell $3.5M cap hit this year
2) Brandon Lloyd $2.4M " "
3) Fred Smoot $2.1M"
4) Todd Collins $1.4M
5) Ladell Betts $1.3M

We have $4M in cap space tied up in our two back up QB's and we can not afford $1.1M for a starting caliber LB and valuable back up.
THIS IS A STUPID MOVE.
There is something behind the scenes we do not yet know about. Coach Williams and Marshall must be fighting.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

Godfrey is not really the focus. I think H.B. Blades has impressed the coaching staff enough and Lemar Marshall sealed his fate on the blown coverage against the Steelers. Can't recall if it was Holmes or Wilson who caught the ball, but Marshall was not in position to defend the pass. I hate to see him go, but the younger LBs have more upside than some of our veteran LB's.

One blown coverage and you are cut?
Double standard much.?.?
What about the solo tackle for a 4 yard loss by Marshall at the beggining of the 3rd quater?
So what you are saying is Anthony Trucks and Dallas Sartz have shown more, are better and have more upside than Lemar Marshall? No.
Why do we discard a useful player and keep guys like Reed Doughty who done and shown nothing?
I call BS!
Marshall said or did something to piss off Williams.
Lemar Marshall will be picked up and be playing well for another team this year.

Huh??? How is Marshall going to beat out Hilenmeyer? Unless he got hurt or something.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

The success of this season did not hinge on Marshall. I'm sure Godfrey and/or the other backups can do just fine in that role. The move is a surprise, but it's not a move that will impact the overall success of the season.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

I knew that he had played for G. Williams before. Maybe that is another reason why Gregg would feel safer with him at that position. I don't think it's that bad of a move considering that he knows both players better and his system better than the fans do.

I'm for it if it enhances his defensive system. No hard feelings toward Marshall, but if his own coach doesn't feel like he will hack it than I support the transaction.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

I too was shocked at first...then I started to think about all the plays made by our young LB's this preseason. I think Godfrey is going to be the current band- aid that will eventually, in the near future, allow our draft picks like Blades and Starz to work into the lineup.

The skins are always getting bashed about wasting draft picks as they have...but maybe they finally did the thing right and this is just the next step in changing the whole ship around.

Marshall was a stand up guy! But let us get real he is a back-up. When he played he is one sided. Not good against the run! As a starter the defense as a whole was not good!

He will catch on somewhere and I wish him well...as long as he does not end up in the NFC East!

The eagles also released Trotter today. Wouldn't surprise me to see Marshall in an Eagles uniform...

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

IF they are creating cap room, hopefully it is for Cooley.

I really hope/think that this is a thumbs up for our younger LB's
