How could WR Steve Smith sign with the Philadelphia Eagles? HOW COULD HE!?!?
I have no idea what the Giants offered Smith – ok – but obviously they gave the injured WR an offer and he took a higher guaranteed offer from the Birds. After playing against them for 4 years, after geting back at McCoy for his Umenyiora comments be tweeting the empty trophy case, after everything he gave to NY — he can turn around and sign with the Eagles. I personally don’t get it, and have never understood players that can do that. But Prime did it, hell even Antonio Pierce did it and won a ring with the Giants after years in Washington — but personally I can’t get behind it.
Well fellow teammate Terrell Thomas understands the move — he makes that abundantly clear in his tweets this evening that it’s all about the money at the end of the day. Real uplifting stuff, check it out:
Football ain’t guaranteed, and at the end of the day it’s a job and about the money! We love this game but it don’t love you back…cont’D
Then Thomas said this moments to go to follow it up, maybe to temper the mood tonight on twitter:
Hate to see a SS sign w/ any team, but gald we get to play against him 2x a yr, and show him the grass ain’t GREENER on the otherside #NYG
Good. Much better — thank you for coming around TThomas.
Still, I’m about to put in Jerry Maguire and try and digest this news, because it’s sitting like a rock in my already upset stomach about this Eagles organization.
