I agree. I put very little stock into the words of former Texans players. I think the only one that I'd pay any attention to would be Demeco Ryans, and that dude said nothing but positive things about his experiences with the Texans.

Barwin is playing the blame game because he knows Philly fans will eat his lunch if he doesn't produce for them in 2013.

I'm not seeing an "exodus", either. We have not lost anyone that is irreplaceable.

That's all I'm hearing, as well. People who wish to criticize the team will be all over his words, but they are empty to me. If this was JJ Watt or Brian Cushing, I'd put more stock into it. But Barwin? Give me a break.

I find it amusing that anyone believes fan discontent has even the slightest influence on front office decisions and team operations.
