  • Jeremiah Trotter Appreciation Thread

    Trotter has been cut by the Eagles for the second time. Post here to discuss the transaction and what Trotter meant to the Eagles and could have meant in 2007 and beyond.

    I would like to thank trotter for opening game 2 years ago getting kicked out of the Falcons game before it started. Because I bet the Falcons, and they won the game outright when they were a 3 point dog. Trotters absence secured victory for the Falcons.

      Well, we all know that Ryan dislikes McNabb and Andy Reid for a variety of issues. I do agree that if Trotter were in that game, they Eagles probably would have won, but the Falcons may have covered the spread.

        I want to thank Trott for swallowing his pride, putting the past behind him, and returning to the team after his knee problems forced him out of Washington. He also turned down a richer offer from the Chiefs to return to the Eagles in the 2005 offseason. Trott in his prime was the absolute perfect MLB for the Jim Johnson defense. I will always remember Trott for his leadership and relentless drive for excellence.

          I'm sad to see Trott go. He was the best run stuffing LB in the NFL for several seasons and like Bsaza said he remained in Philly despite better offers, so I will always respect Trotter.

            I like Gaither a lot though, he's a lot quicker than Trotter, and is better in coverage. Our defensive scheme will have to change since Gaither is not the anchor that Trotter was, but he is more of a sideline-to-sideline defender than Trotter.

                Its tough to see him go, but lets see what Gaither can do. He was always one of the more fun Eagles guys, and he will be missed not only off of the feild but off as well.

                  I said after last season that 2007 was going to be Trotter's last year in Eagles green. We all knew about his knee issues. It is possible that he just couldn't bring it anymore and decided to retire. It is also a possibility that Trotter was going to get less PT, so he asked for his release. Either way, much respect for him.

                    I wonder who will pick him up, maybe a team lacking experience at the mlb spot.

                      Big Blue D is suggesting that he could go to a team running the 3-4. The extra LB's in those kinds of systems can help him be a run stuffer (his strength) while shielding him from coverage responsibilities.

                          There are lots of 3-4 D's out there. Many of them have a need for run-stuffers. Pittsburgh, Miami, New England, the Jets, Arizona, San Diego, and Dallas all run that kind of system.

                            why did we release him him and Spikes were pretty good friends from my point of view and i was excited to see a revitalized Spikes and Trotter. Just imagine how much fun it would have been to see those two on the field together we should have kept him. Why Why Why?

                              If you can't do the job, you can't do the job. This is a business, and he wasn't performing. The team wasn't going to use him, so they're letting him go.
