Would going to the playoffs in 2011 and going into the playoffs this year be worth that?
VJ makes that brown catch. We win Denver, we win Ravens, we win Baltimore. Maybe we don't sign the big lazy Gaither and draft an OL.
Not signing Sproles and VJ will always haunt Aj Smith. Not getting an Ol will haunt him.
Don't forget AJ Smith is the guy who tried to teach Gates a less and held him from one game, for no real reason. GMs don't do this stuff. He sabatoaged our team and most know that, that is why he is on no ones Raiders.
That's not true. I don't know how many times people have tried to explain it but AJ did not try to teach Gates a lesson. He used that move to get Gates into camp earlier and to get a deal done. It was Gates' agent fault for thinking that AJ had the ability to reneged on the suspension, which was out of his hands once Gates missed the deadline by one day. It's why said agent got fired pretty quickly after the deal was done, and why a second deal was done without issue in 2010.

Does Phil ever take you or the rest of the line out to dinner for the great job blocking you do?
He takes care of us. He gave me a Best Buy card for Christmas that I couldn't eat and a picture I tried to barbeque but it didn't taste too good. He can't afford to feed us. He has like 9 kids. Seriously, he does take care of us all the time with little things.
