    Westbrook slams Eagles

    For years, Brian Westbrook was a loyal company man, content to regurgitate all the proper, preapproved talking points at all the proper, preapproved times. He was sort of the anti-T.O. - doing and saying all the right things. He protected the Eagles organization. Not anymore. “The thing for them, the Eagles, it’s always money. It’s always dollar signs,” Westbrook said on Dan Patrick’s radio show. “If they can find someone to do it a little bit cheaper, they’ll go with that guy.” He didn’t say it with malice, didn’t raise his voice or curse the front office. He just stated it simply, as though it’s widely accepted as fact by anyone who knows anything about the way the Birds conduct business. When Patrick followed up and asked which is more important to the Eagles - stuffing more money into their already fat wallet or winning - Westbrook paused and thought hard before answering. “I’ve seen them go the money route with so many players,” Westbrook said. “I wouldn’t know. You’d have to ask someone with the Eagles. With the players, winning is a priority. With the management, I would hope winning is the priority - but I don’t know that.” - Philadelphia Inquirer

    What are the odds Asante Samuel offered to give up some of his signing bonus $$$ in order to keep Westbrook around?

    Well, these guys lash out. They have to. Their job isn't like your job or my job, where the older you get and the more experience you have, the more valuable you are. In their job, they are replaced the moment somebody faster and stronger and/or willing to work cheaper comes along. At what you or I would consider a very young age, they are told they can't cut it anymore and shown the door.

    What would you do?
