<div style="clear: left;"></div></h2>
<div style="clear: both;"><font size="2"></font></div>
It's been less than a week since wide receiver <font color="#022464">Steve Smith</font> signed with the <font color="#022464">Philadelphia Eagles</font>, and in that time he's done a lot of talking.</p>

<div style="clear: left;"><font color="#022464"></font></div>
The chatter continued yesterday as Smith <font color="#022464">took several shots</font> at Kevin Gilbride, <font color="#022464">Eli Manning</font> and the <font color="#022464">New York Giants</font>.</p>
"It's really exciting because they throw the ball so much here, so many downfield throws," Smith said. "I was used to short [and] shorter stuff in <font color="#022464">New York</font>, but here, they're running."</p></blockquote>
The irony of that statement is that <font color="#022464">Eli Manning</font> and the Giants happen to have a good downfield game. Perhaps Smith forgot he was a slot receiver and his job wasn't to get downfield, it was to catch passes across the middle and underneath.</p>
It's almost like IQ drops instantly when a player joins the Eagles.</p>
Alas, Smith continued with his unusual bitterness towards the <font color="#022464">New York Giants</font>, claiming he now dislikes the very team that drafted him and helped him hoist his first (and thus far, only) Super Bowl trophy.</p>
"I used to hate the Eagles, now I don't like the Giants," he said. "I've still got ex-teammates that are friends there, but I definitely want to get on that field for the Eagles now. I want to say I won a Super Bowl for both teams."</p></blockquote>
At the end of the day, you can't really expect Smith to say he's still a fan of Big Blue, but after disrespecting his fans to such a degree, you'd at least think he'd choose to say nothing at all. But that's just not the way it goes in Philly, and now that he's an Iggle, he'll have to start acting like one. So far, he's off to a fantastic start.</p></div>[/quote]I wonder if he remembered that he was our slot guy here, and fly routes arent their bread n butter, usually slot wr's are mainly over the middle kind of guys.
I get it, he cant be all filled with love for Big Blue, but cmon man, you were hating hard-body on the iggles since you got on fb and the second you dip from NY its all philthy green.
IMO his best be would be to just shut his mouth and keep the smack talk to DeSean
....So much for being the prototype Giants WR and the next to follow in Amani's steps. He's just another money grubber who got stiffed by our cheap FO and didnt wanna be patient
**** him man. I should just throw his jersey away.
[/quote]I feel the same way, pisses me off that I never even got to wear the dam jersey though.
[/quote]If the jersey is a stitched one then Id keep it and wait til we get another #12 and get a replacement name plate
....Speaking of, I have a white Tiki jersey and want to get a Phillips patch, any ideas???
[/quote]Great idea. Yes, it's stitched. I was hoping to find a jernnigan name patch, but I am having no luck.
[/quote]LOL, you sure you want a Jernnigan patch so soon. I know I may be a lil pessimistic, but we just drafted him and I dont know how he'll pan out.
Cant hurt saving the nameless #12 jersey and waiting on a NASTY #12 to come by. Im ready to do it with my Tiki jersey cause it only cost me $25, but if I paid full price I def would hold off for another monster player
[/quote]I hear you on that. It's a pretty close to authentic jersey, as close as my eyes can see anyway. I never pay full price though-I get them on mostly new on ebay-on avg I pay $30-35 per.
Did you ever get a nameplate for another player? Do you remember where you got it?
[/quote]I havent purchased one yet, but I found this promising website called Eastern Lettering
