Silva's not a talent.
He's a problem who thinks he's a talent.
Why would you want that? That's the kind of "talent" that Bowden was famous for finding. He would bring in 6 guys like this and then at the end of the season crow about what a value the one guy who went 500 was without mentioning the playing time he had spent on his other stinkies. Hopefully this franchise is well past that.

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
