Did we get out 18MM in cap space back and I missed the memo? If not, I don't see how we'd sign him

I thought we were going with a youth movement.

Did this need it's own thread? Thought we had a free agents thread?

Re: Shanahan: "the most underrated player in the history of the game"

People shouldn't place too much emphasis on what Mike Shanahan says....isn't this the same guy who said he loved McNabb after things didn't work out? Shanahan has a way of saying things that are positive about others in his profession to try and cloud other peoples perception of what he's saying. Sometimes I don't think Shanahan even knows what he's saying.

5 years ago Shanahan had a point.

Now? I'm sure would have a different take.

There is a difference between being overrated and being misused. The Eagles misused him horribly. Nhamdi is a shut down corner (at least was before joining the eagles), and the eagles had him standing in soft zones.

Could you imagine if a team told Deion Sanders to stand in the flat and wait for a RB or TE to come to your zone? Or to just run straight back 40 yards and cover a deep third of the field? That would have turned Deion from a HOFer to a quality return man.

What Nhamdi was good at was taking the best receiver out of the offense. The eagles had him jumping TE flat patterns when the TE was the third option.

Re: Shanahan: "the most underrated player in the history of the game"

He got 3 a game at Oakland because people knew better than throw at him in man coverage. They dont throw at him now, they throw at his zone. Because OC's know he struggles in determining which man to shade over to in zone coverage, especially if you send a receiver into and then out of his zone before sending a second receiver to target his zone.

Put him in man to man, and the other team settles for throwing 3 balls to their best receiver. At least that happened during his days in Oakland. Not sure if rotting in Philly the last couple of years killed his confidence or not, as that is huge for CB's.

You also have to remember that was a comment MS made before the teams played the up comming Sunday. That's how a smart coach talks before to team play each other.

Re: Shanahan: "the most underrated player in the history of the game"

He got burned a lot but you have to think about the scheme Philly has been running the last two years and their lack of safety talent. It has been a pretty dysfunctional defense and I would think playing under those circumstances doesn't bring the best out of people.

Do I think Nnamdi is as good as he was 5 years ago? Not a chance. Do I think he can thrive under the right circumstance? Absolutely. He got burned by RG3 but who hasn't? Especially when a team has a mediocre safeties.
