        *Shrug* Depends on what we gave up for him. Obviously they weren't totally comfortable with the depth we have now, which is understandable.

        Oh that's right...I remember now that he was part of the Takeo Spikes trade. Well hopefully he'll be happier in Chicago. The irony is that the Eagles signed Ian Scott in part to replace Walker. Walker should be a better fit for our system though.

              Eh..can't say I'm a huge fan of that. But he's been a productive starter for the Eagles the last 5 years so hopefully he can help us out this year.

                  Not worth a 5th rounder. The Bills got the better end of this one.

                  People are overrating Tank Johnson. He was a blue collar player who gets fame because of his thuggery, but on the field, he wasn't exactly Warren Sapp. Losing Tank wasn't that big of a deal.

                    They shouldve went after Kendrick Clancy (who i believe is with ATL now). He wouldve been a nice fit in their scheme. He played well for us the one year he was here, but got booted from Arizona bc they drafted Gabe Watson and I believe they are going to a 3-4, which he is not good in.

                    I think ATL got themselves a good player in Clancy. He'll thrive there.

                      I wonder what this spells out for Dusty Dvorachek, he seemed to be getting some people excited.

                        Either way he'll get playing time. There's enough PT for Dvorachek, Walker, and Adams to go around.

                        Walker is a nice fit for the scheme no doubt, and a 5th rounder is only a 5th rounder, I'm probably just more confident with Dvorachek and Adams than most.

                          Yeah they were insane if they thought they'd stop the run of the Rb's they'll be facing this year with Tommie Harris and a bunch of 2nd stringers.
                          I remember: Sean Taylor

                            Darwin Walker wasn't exactly a run stopping presence in Philly. I don't see how he replaces Tank. He can provide a decent penetrator on 3rd downs as a backup, but I don't see him taking up blockers like Tank or Scott did.

                              Since when was Tank a beast against the run? He was usually hit or miss. He usually was very disruptive on a play or got flat out owned and pushed back 6 yards.
