Trent Green agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth $9 million.

Or as i like to call it: The Trent Green Retirement Fund.

A fairytale season from Kurt Warner

A Ridiculously easy regular season schedule. I think the Rams only played one team that year with a winning record in the regular season.

Multiple concussions are not something to shrug off.

Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't he just had two concussions? They were bad ones I know but I would bet alot of money that there are many many players in this league who have had way more than 2 concussions and done ok. His were highly publicized so they seem to blown a bit out of proportion.

I believe Al Saunders is back in St. Louis, but this time as the O-coordinator and he's going to hook up with Green again. I'm still surprised by the move and the price is outrageous for Green Eggs and Ham.

It will be a stupid move only if Trent sees the field. And that's a possibility, as Bulger had gotten beaten up pretty good the last couple of years.

Wow, a $2.1 million signing bonus as well. Pretty nice for a backup QB with a scrambled brain.

Trent will always be one of my favorite ex-Chiefs. I wonder if he could have pulled off what Warner did in that '99 season, had that pile of shit Rodney Harrison not kamikaze'd his knee (in preseason, no less!). IIRC, he was like 28 of 32 through the preseason, just putting up ridiculous numbers.

Heh, it kind of reminds me of signing up for the National Guard during a time of peace and then shit hits the fan.

The guys brain has been smacked harder than a rented mule, he has deep pockets, no excuse for him to return. The down side out weighs up side IMHO.

Frazod
03-10-2008, 05:25 PM
You'd think after getting his brain scrambled two years in a row he'd at least try to catch on with a team that actually has a decent offensive line.

Jesus.

My wife just laughed and said I was a "new sheep" and my 3-year old followed up with, "Daddy! You're a New Sheep!"

It's pretty exciting, because we'll have an excuse to make it up to St. Louis a few times next year, and we never seem to be able to find the time otherwise.

Well, the Steve Young led 49ers never played a winning schedule either, and when they sniffed a real team (Cowboys) they got bitch slapped back to th ebay, that is until they bought a Defensive Tackle, End and SS, eventually winning the Super Bowl...of course even with that star studded team they only beat Dallas by 10.

If not for Jimmy Johnson leaving, Dallas would have had 5 rings. But, I digress, back to the topic at hand, sorry about the turn off...

Ironic thing is, with Carl pushing for the vets to play, he may have damn well been our strater in '07.

03-10-2008, 06:47 PM
While I agree with most people that Trent should retire for his health's sake, he must have gotten cleared by some docs, and as long as that's the case, I can't imagine that most people would turn down that kind of money to be a back-up.

I was voting for ReRam just to add confusion so there would be a ReRam, redrum, and a rerun to go with GoBo and GoBowe.

Good luck and good health to Trent. Always a class act in my opinion.

He would've without a doubt. I don't think it mattered to him. He didn't want to learn a new system, and he doesn't like Herm. Fair enough, I've moved on, everyone else should too. He did great things for our team for half a decade.

His years with the Chiefs offense were great.

That is not saying much, we all know we are going to suck, we all know we have zero leadership at the GM level and our head coach, if you can call him that, has no business coaching in the NFL period...

But this is what we have to live with the next few years....

Hopefully when we get a real GM and HC, we will have enought to work with to build a NFL caliber team.
