agree.. If Collins and Hightower look like rookies and have many breakdowns and cant stop the run or cover, I think BB may think that resigning Spikes is kind of necessary to give the young ones time to develop.
with that said, I think Hightower and Collins will do fine this weekend and unless they absolutly fall apart Saturday it will show we may not need him.
I love SPikes, good player, brings a lot of attitude to the D, and he is a great run stuffer. We he wants to be here I think BB could find a deal that is player and team friendly but I feel Spikes is looking to make bank.. so I'm not confident in his return
You know it would be great if Hightower and Collins along with Fletcher and Nink can just explode with the talent that they have... this is the upside ... right? If the young players can emerge at the exact moment when they are needed and coached up to execute.
we shall see with Spikes. MPI is that his value to the team exceeds all the posted shortcomings except the unknown of what crazy price that some jackazs agent comes up with. Hope he's smarter than that.
