I am sorry to see Trotter go ! WHY ?
Because I am not an Eagles fan , and he was the main reason the Eagles were so bad against the run...And he talked a good game after a pitifull performance on the field
" PILE ON TROTTER " that suited him,,,,he never saw a pile he would nt jump on,,,then get up acting like he made the tackle
I feel bad because my HATED Eagles woke up finally and got rid of this bum. and he truly was a bum. Fans forget how he put a gun to the Eagle s head in free angency going to Washington.

Obviously you weren't an eagles fan. If you were you'd know what he meant to the team and to that defense. He will be sorely missed if not for his leadership abilities alone.

Andy Reid and the whole Eagles organization is clueless! Trot and Dawk are the heart and soul of that team. It's very dissapointing! I'm an Eagles fan, but not a "head office" fan, that's for sure! Make the guy go through summer training camp and then give him the ax -- oh, brother!

I understand your speaking with a heavy heart, but, the eagles have the best front office in football with the exception of the patriots. The know exactly when to get rid of players and bring in younger talent. I'll miss Trott too, but maybe it was for the best.

what he meant to the team? sure he was exciting to watch when he could keep up and actually make a play. but the guy was slow and his knees are shot. he will go somewhere else and hopefully get a shot at ending mcnabbs pitiful career.

wow some in here are cold hearted about one of the best middle linebackers in the " NFL ", I truly believe the eagles front office made a major mistake letting go a defensive leader that KNEW MOST what other offenses were going to do but you blame all the running up the eagles defense gut on trotter when the eagles dont have one good defensive tackle what so ever, they dont know how to shed a block nor stuff a run so you blame trotter for his " old " knees??? eagles are clueless and im a hardcore eagles fan for many years and i can truly say the defense for the next couple years will still be in aftermath shock for cutting trotter so soon why not let him play out his years in philly and cut matt mccoy he friggin blows but you let go a team leader ?? how foolish eagles need to get rid of that front office soon now before all hell breaks loose from the eagles fans, im getting fed up with letting our stars just up n leave like this with bitter tastes in our mouths like did this really just happen to one of the defenive stars?? are you serious ?? joe banner, tom heckert, no wander why the eagles wont win a superbowl cause your not loyal at all to the players on the eagles team, the blame is on you two and some andy reid, jeffery lurie please fire them before they do more destruction

I have to agree, the Birds have made some good front office moves, often in spite of the fans 'thinking' they know what's best for the team.
Remember the boos poured down on Donovan at the draft because the fans wanted Ricky Williams?
Sorry to see him go, but the Eagles 28th in stopping the run last season, and that sucks.

couldnt agree more with ya, how do you let one of the your defensive captains go before the beginning of the season.. he looked great in camp and can still play the game at a high level..you wonder if there was something more?
