    "Eric Weddle gets massive deal - $40M over 5 yrs, $13M sign bonus, $19M guar. Record guarantees and 2yr averages for a safety"
    I remember a certain yutz on here saying that he didn't see anyone out there that could be had on the cheap to replace M-will.

    Looks like that yutz was correct.

    not sure anyone here thought Weddle would be cheap.

    To bad. Not much out there that I like when it comes to a improvement over M-will.

    Maybe a Mikell. Read a article when I scouted him that he was the 2nd most attacked S (48 or so pass defended and only gave up 5 or less TD's).
    Shit man ... keep up ... Mikell is gone ... St. Louis.

    Lets not forget that glowing endoursement Leslie gave M-will.

    I see the FO pukes saying no to the coaching staff and going after someone they think will make us better. Maybe at the request of our new D-coord perhaps.
    Yes, I bet he is the one asking for a replacement. Lets not forget how excited we all were to get M-Will, but ever since his neck injury, he just hasn't seemed nearly the same.

    Les was a DB, Les was a secondary coach, Les was a DC. I'm willing to bet he likes Weddle, and wants us to at the very least guage the interest and see what it woudl take to get him.

    If Fraizer is hell-bent on keeping M-Will then IMO it's no better than Childress who hung onto the TJ project for 5 years.
    All I can go on is what the man said. If he's what he professes to be (Like Dungi) he doesn't lie. He said he wanted M-will to take a bigger role and gave him a glowing endoursement more than once this offseason (when he could talk).

    I see this as nothing more than a staff doing what a staff should do. No one man making a decision, but the whole staff making a decision as a whole to make the team better.

    Again, my guess, Coach Pagac has asked for a upgrade and is going to get it.

    Heck, if nothing else, its probably Ricky Boy flexing his new found authority.
    You're imagination is running wild again!

    Wouldn't it be far more likely Leslie has to say good things about a player who he may not be able to replace?
    I think it's just coach speak.
    My belief is that personel decisions are discussed and debated by all involved, a decision is made, then Spielman works on aquiring that player and Brez. works on the contract.
    They each have a role but work as a team.
    Why does there always have to be a conspiracy theory involving a power struggle.
    Seems a little dramatic.
    So when I said the following, isnt' that the same as just what you said?

    I see this as nothing more than a staff doing what a staff should do. No one man making a decision, but the whole staff making a decision as a whole to make the team better.
    Perhaps your looking for drama in my posts.
    We agree on that part. It's the following that seems contrary to that statement.

    its probably Ricky Boy flexing his new found authority.
    Drama in the front office!

    OK, I gotcha. Guess it could be read that way. It really was nothing more than a assumption that our "GM like guy" was actually acting like a GM, which should be, for all of us, a good thing and not drama.
