    I skip his articles on ROTB, all his crap is pure speculation.

    Put nicely, Walter is a writer, not a reporter.

    Ngokoue is a good player but nowhere near the level of player Hopkins is. Also factor in that we were able to unload DJ's terrible contract. Can't even remotely compare these 2 trades.

    The problem is that he treats his speculation as fact. And he claims to have some level of insider access. Darren Urban is indirectly telling us that Walter Mitchell has NO insider access.

    While that isn't really news to any of us, it calls into question all of the times he has claimed this.

    I've never felt he claims he has inside access, just friends in the industry that help validate his thoughts on judging facial expressions, coachspeak, or what have you. I could be wrong there though.

    Mitch is full of himself, which is the only inside information he has and now is unbearable with a platform to mouth off

    I still can’t believe we got Hopkins AND got rid of DJ’s contract at the same time.

    When it first came out, I was ecstatic because I could not believe we found a way to get rid of that contract... when I then found it out it also included Hopkins, well I'm still trying to figure that out lol

    Yeah the trade sounded like the Cardinals JUST got rid of DJ at first. I was like cool, we probably tossed in a 4th rounder.

    I like that he faces these things head on. He could easily just kind of skirt his way past it and people would still be wondering if there is a beef between them or not.

    He's one of the best things that's ever happened to this franchise.
