    LOL ... I have an image of Phil as the Godfather. Welcoming back player who tested FA with open arms.

    But seriously, our back office organization is starting to look like a real professional football club. Wow, what a concept!

    To paraphrase The Eagles lb he's "Already Gone". I'm having a hard time deciding who was the biggest waste of roster space last year and if it wasn't him he's very near the top. If we don't draft any OL I'm guessing at least Britton and Brown will be around.

    He seemed to say earlier that he wanted Britton back but I suppose each good thing comes in it's own time and at his price which is probably at a vet minimum ($730k) or close to it with maybe a small signing bonus to pay his agent off. LOL

    He made him a deal he couldn't refuse, rather than welcoming him back with open arms. It appears that James Brown will soon "sleep with the fishes" *shudder*

    I think I'm beginning to understand the nuances of Phil-speak.

    I am thrilled with this move. Britton offers versatility as he is good enough to start in spot duty, he can play 4 of the 5 positions effectively, is young and had great chemistry with the group (all back this year) in the meeting room, weight room and on the field. Plus he is cheap and knows the offense. My guess on the roster for next year is Bushrod, Slauson, Garza, Long, Mills, Britton, Boggs and one more with the battle between James Brown and Joe Long. My hope is that Kromer has had enough time to get Long ready.

    Love these movies and the speech he makes at this sit down is classic.

    A picture of Carimi in the background being welcomed with open arms (bound to a chair, gagged and bloodied a little) would complete the picture!

    Too late. Gabe Carimi sleeps with the fishes........or is it the birds? Guess it all depends on whether it's mackerel wrapped in butcher paper or a crow.
