We gave almost nothing for Erasmus James and still got ripped off.

re: Boschetti back in, Alexander cut

i look at the other way. at one time, James was a good player. it was worth the risk( which was next to nothing)

I agree. I think the risk was worth taking and there is no doubt it was a risk. It was worth it even more because of the help we needed at defensive end. Unfortunately, he couldn't provide it.

I suppose this move could be in response to Golston being hurt?

Sean Alexander released, Boschetti to sign.

re: Boschetti back in, Alexander cut

What I don't get is why there wasn't an explanation for why Erasmus wasn't on the field. What was all this talk about him reuniting with his college coach and getting his weight down so he could get back into playing shape? Is Boschetti really the answer? He's never sacked a QB in the NFL!

You've gotta feel for Alexander. Guy is the league MVP one year and dumped in the trash a few years later. That's got to be humbling or worse, depressing.

I'd rather see Alexander let go than Rob Jackson. I'm interested in seeing how Jackson can do in a game. He seems to have a knack for getting to the quarterback. Erasmus James? I don't know what the deal with him is.

I don't know about James, he probably would have been released anyway. So, I tend to think we wasted a pick on him.

That's what the NFL does to RBs. Pounds 'em into the dirt and then leaves 'em for dead. Brutal business really.

re: Boschetti back in, Alexander cut

I love the "fans" who see nothing but negativity. As someone said we gave practically nothing for a shot at James and got nothing. I think we probably under paid in the first place. Considering our need along the defensive front and James' age what we paid was somewhat of a deal. He didn't work out. So what? No one hits 100% in the personell game despite what the FO nay-sayers want to believe.

I wonder if Boschetti called Cooley to see if he'd had a piss test lately...

Am I missing something? Did Erasmus James get cut? Given the severity of his knee injury last season, it wasn't likely he'd give us much this year anyway. If his knee stays healthy and he continues to work with the team, he could contribute in '09....

I see alot of positives w/ the Skins but I also will point out when I think otherwise. It wasn't the worst deal in the world. I just pointed out that I remember seeing somewhere that he was going to be released anyhow. Hey, but it's mostly hindsight now. He didn't work out.
