    Big Sey

    Good article on a guy we should have kept.  His leadership has been what is most missed.  Always remember Brady and Seymour walking together off the field at Pittsburgh in 2005 after a big regular season win.  Brady says to the NFL Films camera "This is the best defensive player in the game".

    agreed - do miss his leadership. sigh...hindsight is 20/20..

    however, we would not have gotten Solder without his pick though....

    a LT of the future is > then a DT that will be out of FB in a few years.

    He has always been about money. He played hard last season because it was a contract year. He got his contract so expect the 75% effort again. He might have a chip on his shoulder against the Pats for shipping him away from paradise into hell though.

    Everyone on this board seems to have a long memory with the exception of the Seymour issue. No one seems to want to remember how Sey dogged in  for his last two years here, after he got a huge contract.

    If he had played with the intensity he now shows in Oakland, he'd still be here.

    Re: Big Sey

    No one and I mean NO ONE can justify this terrible trade now. Big Sey is an absolute beast that played a huge part in bringing championships here. If we had kept him, which obviously we should have, I think we would have won another one by now. He remains a dominant force. Ask yourself if he played for the Steelers if they would have made this move. All-pro D tackles are hard to find. This trade sucked.

    He's all about money?  What NFL player isn't!  The fact is Seymour has been very productive for the Raiders, while the Pats defense has slipped bigtime since his departure.

    Re: Big Sey

    We were not going to pay Sey, Wilfork and Brady people, one had to go. We got a first round pick and what looks like the franchise LT of the future in Solder.

    Do we miss his presence on defense, hell yeah we do. Was it bad to trade him? No.

    Why? we were not going to pay the man! Get that straight people.

    Big Sey was great in the early years.  He was so hobbled by SB42 that he had several chances to end the game when Eli positively had to pass.  The younger, injury-free Sey would have ended that game.

    It was time to move on after 3 injury-plagued seasons.

    OT:  How ironic that BDC won't let you say bang-ed, as in Sey was bang-ed up, but they ran an ad all last week for the Big Bang Theory that said "B A N G" 5 days a week with a picture of Kelly C.  Gee, double-entendre you think?

    Re: Big Sey

    Hindsight is 20 20 as fans we all forget but he was more like Haynesworth is now (alright maybe no that bad).  He was "appearing" to move into that "injury phase" of his career.  In other words I'm sure they projected him to become more like Bob Sanders than Jim Marshall (remember him from the Vikings...played forever.)

    They traded him at his peak because the next season he would have walked into free agency and we would have gotten nothing.  No problem with the move, my problem is there is no adequate replacement.  Two separate issues.
