Re: Bradford demands trade after Eagles'

So, Bradford wants a trade after all. He's not showing up at the OTA's. I guess his feelings are hurt.

I'm thinking like this, if somebody is paying me 35 million dollars for two years worth of work, I don't care if they draft the next Joe Montana. I'll play, take my money and if they don't want me in two years sign another deal, with another team, for a lot more money than if I had to work at a regular job.

I can hear Lurie now, "Howie, this is another fine mess you've gotten us into."

Howie better hit a Grand Slam with the number two pick.

Re: Bradford demands trade after Eagles'

I agree with you, even if the Eagles trade Bradford, which they won't, he has enough guaranteed money I would dress up in Swoops costume if that is what Mr Laurie asked me to do.

I can see where he might be upset they didnt use that #1 to pic some wide-body lineman to keep him off his back but they never promised him that, but he did take the cash.
Bradford will be at the mandatory sessions and will showcase his talents during the 2016/17 season to try and impress his next employer.

Re: Bradford demands trade after Eagles'

You can say that but remember professional athletes have huge egos. Like or not, they all are ultra sensitive when their abilities or job is threatened and they lash out. Until you walk in those shoes you don't know how you would act. I do agree though, I would relish the opportunity to be unhappy for a little while and make millions while doing it.

Re: Bradford demands trade after Eagles'

You're wrong about that. I know exactly how I would act. I would take the money, play my best for two years, then offer my services to the highest bidder.

See ya, Howie.

I get your point Birch but what kind of season do you think we are going to get out of a guy who is pouting? Ego or not, he may be enough of a knucklehead to chain himself to the main mast and then scuttle the ship. With his limited track record showing not much in the positive column I think this childish move of his speaks volumes as to how he perceives himself; a legend in his own mind appears to fit.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Bradford demands trade after Eagles'

What a whiner.

I don't see Philly starting Wentz anytime soon, which means Sam would make his money, and have a chance to "show his skills" for the payday in two years...or next year if Wentz pans out. Instead it is , they are bringing in a top draft pick after giving me a bonus, AND guaranteed money. They hurt my feelings and invaded my safe space.

Trade him to Cleveland. He will then have the great opportunity of seeing RG-one-third every day, AND possibly have to compete with him to start! Boy, wouldn't that bust his bubble!

Re: Bradford demands trade after Eagles'

I doubt Howie can get us half the trade value for Bradford that the Eagles paid to get him (even though he probably performed with us better than expected). Way to go Lurie!

3B NRA NWTF: I do have to fine you. That will be a thousand dollars Canadian, or 10 American dollars if you prefer.
