Perhaps Trotter has worn out his welcome as Sports said.

Arrington sure didn't sound to broken up by the thought of him leaving, he basically said that Mitchell should have been starting all along.
I heard him say that too so I don't think Trotter coming back is even a remote possiblity now. It's one thing for the coach to say the player is allowed to seek a trade but its quite another when a teammate says the player shouldn't have even been in the starting lineup.

diehardskin2982:

Gildon was a major disappointment last year - and to some extent for the last year and a half in Pitts. Gibbs likes vets - but not ones that seem to be on the downside of their career.

Trotter is not the kind of player that Cowher tends to want at LB. Steelers' LBs have to be able to cover receivers and that is what Trotter has never been able to do well.

I see this as a very unlikely trade.

I'm confused, MattyK72.
I put up a post about a month or so ago asking if people thought as I did, that Trotter was going to be gone soon since we were looking at so many linebackers.
Your answer to why we were doing that was "quite simply, depth."
I knew that was not the case and was surprised by your curt, short, smart ass answer.
I also thought that was one of the stupidest answers I had ever heard.
Now you seem to be down on Trotter, calling him a high priced LB coming off two mediocre seasons...
What gives?
You seem to change positions on things more than your underwear, and you come off as some authority who knows everything just because you are one of the moderators of this site.
Well, allow me to say-
I TOLD YOU SO!

Trotter lead the team in tackles for the same reason Iffy was second... The D-line sucked and he would tackle them, or they would out run him and Iffy would get the tackle. Getting Warrick from the bears would be a huge upgrade and we would have a young and fast linebacker core that will make Williams lick his chops and send blitzs left and right the way teams did to us. If we added Taylor in teh draft our D will have fun messing up QBs rythem

A lot of peopel beleive that Urlacher is only as good as he is because he plays next to him... Now I dont knwo how much I beleive that becuase ive seen plenty of highlight reals from Urlacher and hes definitly a gifted player. But ive read a lot about peopel in Chicago wishing Warrick had the big contract. If hes one of those players that makes things happen that show up on other peoples stats then Lavar would have a field day playing with him as well.

If you had been on this board for any amount of time, you'd realize that we all can be called for similar inconsistencies. People's opinions do change. It's a fact of the world. I don't take offense to you pointing out what you did, but I do take offense to your public censure of matty.

Funny how the offseason makes people testy.

Wow, hmmm, I'm not even sure where to start.

Smart assed answer? Sorry you took it that way but in no way was I trying to be a smart ass.

As far as being a stupid answer why is depth such a stupid answer? When Trotter leaves and we sign someone like Holdman for example, we'll still have nice depth at LB so I really don't understand where you're going with trying to shoot down my reasoning of depth.

As for being down on Trotter now, I have never been that high on him to begin with. I have always said the last two seasons he was disappointing and didn't live up to his big contract.

And what I really don't understand nor appreciate is you calling me out saying that I come off as some know it all just because I'm a moderator on this site.

Actually I am a bit more than just the moderator. Lord only knows the countless hours and $$ out of my own pocket I've dumped into this site over the last few years. But I wouldn't expect you to know that so I won't hold that comment against you.

To each his own I guess, if I offended you I apologize. And if it makes you happy then fine, you're right and I'm wrong. You called Trotter getting the boot and I didn't. Sorry but my crystal ball was a little cloudy that day.

"Quite Simply, Depth" is not a smart ass answer by any means. Furthermore, as Matty said he's more than just a moderator on the site. I'm just a moderator but to say that I'm any more important to this site than the Cpayne's, Daseal's, etc. of this site is missing the bigger picture. What Matty has done, through his time and money, is provide a forum for intelligent debate about our beloved Redskins. To dismiss Matty as some power hungry ignoramus is essentially biting the hand that feeds you here.

But everyone's contribution is what really makes it work. Take SkinsnCanes for example, just two days he's been on the warpath and already his are posts I always look forward to reading. Anyone incapable of accepting other's opinions, even when it doesn't agree with their own or who feels the need to spit out "I Told You So's" apparently doesn't understand the true purpose of the warpath.

Sometimes you'll be right, sometimes you'll be wrong. And opinions do change. I'd like to think that I've helped shape some other fans' opinions through some of my posts, as I know other people have helped shape mine
