NFC East holdouts/contract problems

I took a little bit of solace in this statistic.

Redskins - no holdouts, all rookies signed, no outstanding grievances.

Eagles - Brian Westbrook a no-show, Corey Simon refuses to sign Franchise tender, Terrell Owens wants a new contract despite making $9.16 million last year (including bonuses), starting DE Jerome McDougle out at least 4 weeks with a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Giants - Top draft pick Corey Webster unsigned.

Cowboys - Starting guard Larry Allen barred from practicing with team due to conditioning.

It seems nearly every Super Bowl participant ends up with contract headaches the next year. Even the Patriots are not immune. The Eagles are getting it bad this year, though.

Re: NFC East holdouts/contract problems

I love seeing Westbrook bitching about his contract. You guys think they'll be able to afford to lock him up long term?

Did I not read correctly because I thought it was?

The official grievance has been dropped. The team and Arrington's agents are in discussions as to if there will be any adjustments made to his signed deal.

Re: NFC East holdouts/contract problems

That's at least a good "personal" move...

Re: NFC East holdouts/contract problems

The Times is saying the grievance hasn't been settled.

Sounds like the Post jumped the gun again and got the team into some hot water.

Re: NFC East holdouts/contract problems

I think the Eagles are going to be on the decline this year. Regardless of whether TO plays (and plays with heart), I don't think McNabb will be able to push their spat out of his subconcious - their team chemistry is kaput and they will lose games that they would have won in previous years. Dallas is the scary team for me... don't know why, but Bledsoe and Parcells (teamed up again) gets my blood up. I can't wait for the Dallas games.

Re: NFC East holdouts/contract problems

I'm always scared of Dallas games if the past few years have been any indication...

I want to agree with you, but I'm going to abstain from predicting the demise of Philly. For the past four years, I've said they couldn't keep it up, and I'm proven wrong each time.

On the other hand, if Owens and McNabb can't be friendly, T.O. will blame all kinds of things on Donovan (anyone remember how the Owens/Garcia rift played out?). AND with the top TE receiving threat retired (bye-bye, Chad Lewis) and the top RB threat, receiving or otherwise, holding out (you get yours, Brian Westbrook, McNabb's offense could very well sputter. I know if Patrick Ramsey's top receiving targets were LJ Smith (34 catches for 377 yards in 2004) and Todd Pinkston (36 catches for 676 yards - in 2004, his fifth season!!)and his top RB was a holdout, I'd be worried indeed.

Re: NFC East holdouts/contract problems

I'm with you, BL.

Seems like people have been quick to predict the demise of the Eagles for the past 3-4 years, and each year they have managed to be the top dog in the NFC.

While they're facing more difficulties than usual so far this preseason, I still expect them to be a 10 or 11 win team this year and the team to beat in the NFC East.

Re: NFC East holdouts/contract problems

But WE'VE always been quick to predict the rise of the Redskins each year.

Again I'll repeat, I just have a feeling about this year. Of course I've said "This is gonna' be the year." but I really feel like this year WILL be.

My guts never lie...

...because I play them out each game.
