His block on merriman is oneof the sweetest I've ever seen by a HB

get JAX an oline and MJD can carry this team to the playoffs

FWP is needed in certain situations just like Mendehall will be used, not to mention Mewelde Moore, probably the most productive out of the backfield in the short passing game plus blocking.

Mixed impressions on this deal. MJD *NOT THE MORON FROM YAHOO* can flat out play though, so it might be worth it.

I've always liked Jones-Drew (except when he plays us, of course!) and it's good to see that the Jags also think so highly of him by rewarding him with such a nice chunk of change. The kid is a beast in the backfield and can catch those passes out of the backfield and take off with 'em about as good as any other back in the league.

I have to say I am glad we got Mendenhall but I think the cowboys got a good back in Jones as well he played pretty good last year.

OK - so the new word is it was a four-year, $31-million deal with $17.5 million guaranteed.

but who wants to quibble over a few million

I hope Willie does get ideas from this so he can go sign with the Raiders or some other team stupid enough to pay him that kind of money. He's pretty much just a waste of cap space to us at this point. The sooner his ass is out the door, the sooner defenses will have to stop laughing at our joke of a running game, and the sooner our offense can actually start living up to its potential.

But we've been over this already. Suffice to say on the day he's finally cut or his contract expires, it'll give me the same feeling as when you get a cast off and can finally return to normal. Only in this case, you have to wear the cast for 4 or 5 years. Waste of cap space, waste of a roster spot, and if he got traded for a 7th-round draft pick I'd call it a sucker deal for whoever took him off our hands.
I guess there is no off season for Willie hate. Geez.

No, although you do bring up an interesting paradox. When the season ends, Parker cannot continue to suck, but people can continue to bitch about him (OK, I can continue to bitch about him). I guess some things in life aren't always fair.
