This is a good second place result. Out of our conference and Dallas plays him twice a year.

I've seen worse results.

I know some say Cowboys were not in it but Rex Ryan thought for sure his brother was and many in Oaktown thought Dallas. They were in it

Ok, now that knee jerk reaction to lowness of the contract has passed. I'm still more than ok with who the FO signned and how they went about their business.

my thoughts..

so glad the Texans FO moved on. Eagles weren't mentioned at all through the whole thing by the media(tells you something) . It would be interesting to see how the Jets fans are imploding (they will get Cromartie so not all is lost)

Yeah, now it sucks that they can afford to grab Cullen Jenkins, Many Lawson, and any other pass rusher that might be out there.

Someone on this board said something about Aso being a possible Hall-of-Famer.

It ain't going to happen if he don't get on a team that starts winning.

If he had to choose between us & the Jets, that's a tough decision. You'd lean towards the Jets, but you have to wonder how long that's going to last. The Texans look like they're on the way up, but they've been looking that way for the last 4 years.

Dallas....... same as the Jets. Eagles....... now we're talking. Andy Reid's been there for what, a decade? That F.O. how long? They do things a certain way & have been for a long, long time, & it works for the most part.

We could offer him $15 million, Jets offer $11.5 million & he's got the Jets in the lead.

The Eagles offer $12.5 million, plus a real chance at immortality. It's a no-brainer.

plus he's out of the AFC, so

Depends on how you look at it.

Everyone knew we were going to throw big money at him. The Jets were the only ones with the gnads to put their "clout" against our green.

As soon as we bowed out, Dallas jumps in the race, the Eagles jumps in the race.

He was never coming to Houston, he just wanted us to get the money up. But when we were flashing our wallet, the only other contender was the Jets with a very good reason to keep the number at $11.4

We bow out, & Aso signs for $12.5 he made $1.1 because we dropped out.

So it depends on how you look at it.

Default Re: The Nnamdi Asomugha Thread

Ok here is what happened.

I was listening to radio and the guys here in SA had a guy in training camp and they mentioned that Stephen and Jerry Jones pulled Rob Ryan out of an active practice to talk to someone on the phone. After that Stephen jones got back on the phone and after a while got off and him and old man started fist bumping and shaking hands with Garett. Meanwhile, we hear Jets are out on update and then announcers say Jets are out and that means Dallas got him they are celebrating on air that Cowboys got Namdi and then boom Sc Update and whammo Eagles get Namdi.I got out of car before I heard it but I saw it flash on my phone as I walk into Chuck E. Cheese .

Dont believe the Dallas spin that they withdrew...Eagles flat out stole Namdi from them..Jerry and his spawn dont fist bump and clap hands if the Eagles got him...i would have killed to see Jerry's face when he realized he got done by a rival.

As a Cowboy fan I can honestly say I'm not crushed. the rush for the hours today were fun but a large majority on the Cowboy board and talking to fans the last few months thought we wouldn't get him. They thought JJ would stick with Jenkins, Scandrick and resign Newman. Aso was a bonus if it happened. In a thread Monday I put their chances at 0% because of needing to resign Free. From what I read Dallas was never even really a challenge and didn't care that they were a smoke screen. They didn't have near the cash. though I read this

Quote:
Jerry Jones stood on the sideline watching the Dallas Cowboys practice Friday, anxious to find out if he'd struck free-agent gold and landed Nnamdi Asomugha.

The Cowboys made a strong pitch for this year's most coveted free agent and felt good about their chances. At one point, Jones and his son, vice president Stephen Jones, finished a phone call and shared a fist bump. Another time, they called defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to the sideline, handing him a phone so he could talk -- presumably to Asomugha, his former protege in Oakland.

But when practice ended, the Cowboys learned they didn't get their man. Worse still for them, Asomugha went to division rival Philadelphia.

Jones was doing a radio interview with the team's flagship station at the time, and had a feeling things didn't go his way. He said he would be disappointed if that was the case, although his response probably was a lot stronger once he found out for sure.

"We had an opportunity, we acted on it -- and, believe me, we firmly acted on it, `til my eyes watered," Jones told 105.3 The Fan.

Ok lets see what Philadelphia have done so far.

1) Nnamdi Asomugha
2) Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
3) Jason Babin
4) Johnnie Lee Higgins
5) Donald Lee
6) Vince Young
7) Hunter Pence ( I know )

I'm thriled with our offseason but looking at that list, I don't know what to say, the new Redskins maybe.

I'd say more like the new Patriots. The Eagles have been one of the best teams every off season for years now as far as improving their team in the off season. I've been saying that for several years now. It's a reason why I'm always giving Reid props.

Anyone think Aso should be on the chalk board before each game saying he didn't think Texans were a winning team?

I'll bet the Eagles would be willing to make a trade to unload Asante Samuel now with aquiring both Nnamdi & Rodgers-Cromartie?

I heard that they were not but I think they are just trying to put out that it's going to take a lot to get him and that they are not just going to give him up.

I can't see DRC or Asante thrilled at playing nickle, plus they are going to have to deal with the Desean jackson situation.

Knowing we have a chance @ Fuller in April what would you give for Samuel? I think a late first would be worth it.

yes sir, that's the way I see it too. it will present an opportunity for some team to help their secondary as well.

Could you imagine the Texans going from Kareem Jackson & Brice McCain to Asante Samuel & Johnathan Joseph? Be still my beating heart still Andy Reed would extract some value in return like a package of Jacoby & Connor Barwin or worse yet a draft pick

I don't see them trading Asante. Dude is a balled and makes more plays than aso does.

If they are going to trade someone it's going to be doc cromartie.

If it were me, I'd just ask one of them to play safety.

The next step for the Eagles is LB. Especilly MLB. So is they move Samuel or DRC it will be for a name MLB. Something along the lines of Willis from the 49's or your guy one for one.

If the niners give up Willis for Asante that would be stupid.
