2018 Pro Football Thread
« on: March 10, 2018, 10:41:10 PM »
When I'd read that the Seahawks cut All-Pro CB Richard Sherman on Friday, I had this hope/dream that the Lions would pull the trigger and sign him right away, because I would've bought that jersey as soon as it was f'ing available...that lasted 24 hours, and I should've known he'd sign with a rival of the team that released him. Damn.

Legit sad that Sherm had to get cut. He's forever going to be an icon and was one of the OG's that made this run possible. It's going to suck to play him twice a year and see him in that Niner uniform.

Just don't be one of those guys burning jerseys.

Although, I must say, it's been fun watching people here react, since no one in SC cared about pro football.

Its interesting that these big time FA's go to rivals. You know they just want to stick to their old team

In Sherman's case, absolutely.

In other cases, I think sometimes it's just to get insight. The Patriots LOVE to take other team's players because A) somehow they're able to get more out of them (Welker, Moss, Corey Dillon, etc etc etc I hate the Pats) and B) I have no doubt that Belichick quizzes the hell out of them in regards to what their team does on that player's side of the ball (i.e. the James Harrison signing that the Jaguars made moot by knocking Pitt out of the playoffs).

Granted, the 49ers are definitely interested in B, but I think Sherman was looking to stay in the NFC West to stick it to the Hawks.

There's only a few idiots who do things like that, and for the most part those are the ones that will stop caring about the team when they aren't winning. They're a small minority who get way more attention than they deserve.

Only time I remotely considered it was when Norton left the Cowboys for the 49ers

Bye bye, Dez.

This is surprising, but I guess, yeah, he was 30 with a history of injuries, but still. Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson? Who are those guys?

Honestly, would love for him to come to the Jets, but it looks like he wants to go to an NFC East team. Him and Alshon Jeffrey would be BEASTS together on Philly.

this was a good move for the team. Dez was costing too much money and while seriously talented, they can get younger and cheaper without losing too much at the position. injuries are more likely with Dez now plus he's 30. he will be a great find for some team who's willing to pay so I see this as a win/win, if you dont count all the hurt feelings.
