Crazy. Was Ryans not a good fit for the 3-4?

Wow but the way Wade Phillips has been working with that D they will have a replacement in no time and get something huge in return for Ryans.

As for the 3-4 without watching them much just an uneducated guess looking at the stats they really dropped after the 3-4.

Last year he was injured but all 120s-150s tackles to 64 last year.

Ya that's what jay glazer was saying. More suited for a 4-3 plus it takes his contract off the books
Shouldn't matter to Philly and they probably gave a nice chunk to get him since his stats will probably go back up to 120 tackles in the 4-3.

Eagles got a steal.

Young pro bowl MLB for a mid round pick.

I disagree, he was injured early in the season and came on strong towards the end. This is all about his cap number.

Houston's going to need a MLB now to play along Cushing. Might change the 1st round a bit.
I seriously do not understand this. Guy was an OUTSTANDING player for them and they shipped him off for far, FAR less than he was worth. TERRIBLE move for the Texans, GREAT move for Philly.

I agree
I don't get how they can afford to pay all those guys. Vick got 100 mill djax got 50 Asomugha Asante Samuel Babin all getting paid big bucks
And McCoy is gonna get paid soon

wouldnt it have been easier to sign grant

also

why didnt texans trade him before and then sign mario williams to deal
Don't be surprised if the Texans try and negotiate a deal with Grant given his 3-4 experience.

Shocked that they gave him away.

It seems that they could have gotten a lot better odf a deal from someone.
Ryans is a beast. Philly got a steal there.
