Micah Warren from GCobb.com. I always thought you should still be in the NFL. I think the "mouth" aspect was blown way out of proportion. I always had a tough time believing that the third WR on a Super Bowl team didn't have a place in the NFL. Doesn't make sense.
Hang in there and keep staying in shape. And don’t open yourself up to the attacks on your blog too much. As a PR guy by trade, I can tell you that there are people who are going to want to attack you just because you are an athlete and not a real person. You don’t have feelings and don’t get offended. I know it’s tough to remember, but people are idiots and feel better laying into an athlete or celeb. So don’t give these morons TOO much access or they’ll just start lobbing grenades.
Check out my authentic Freddie Mitchell jersey! I attached a pic. You can tell I got that your rookie year because the NFL crest doesn’t have the white around it. They first started that in 2002. Yeah I’m a nerd.
Hang in there, bud! If you ever have a message that you’d like me to get of GCobb.com, you can always drop me a line.

As the people's champ do you feel as though you let Philadelphia fans down by being a rd 1 draft pick and panning out to be a so called bust? With the NFL relying on speed nowadays do you really think you have a shot of getting back into the NFL? What are your regrets about playing for the Eagles?
First off, this is a pretty lame question. I did everything that the Eagles asked of me and after all, I can’t throw the ball to myself … lol … the NFL doesn’t just rely on speed, but I can still put down a 4.4. mile. Regrets … ?

I just want to say keep your chin up brother. I know what its like not to be respected at your job by your teamates. Nobody respects me either, but I know I'm the best at what I do and 4 and 26 will always be my personal mantra!
If you ever want to hang out Michael's on Street Road has an awesome Happy Hour and the first drink is on me!
Did you ever consider putting out a book or video of your workout tips? I really want to maximize my physique and look like "The People's Champ".
Do you think its wrong top wear a sweater vest in the winter? The guys I work with make fun of me when I do. They make comments like, "I look like Im in grade school." or "I was Student of the Month."
Personally its a Nautica Sweater Vest so you know I'm representing. Why don't they understand that a sweater vest is a sharp piece of apparel?
I appreciate the love … when ever people hate on you it makes you stronger. What you wear doesn’t matter … you’ll be a trend setter and you’ll be surprised, they’ll wear the same when you aren’t around …
How does fan mail work? I sent a wedding invitation to TO at the Novacare complex back during the 2005 preseason... do you think he ever saw it, or did he just ignore it?
Terrel is pretty good at reading his fan mail … you should have invited a small time guy, like myself … I would have attended … lol …
Whatever happened to Freddiemitchell.com? When you became a man-child in that Minnesota game and took over I was rockin' the fredex hat and shirt haha After you were released I tried getting on the site and grabbing some more merchandise for friends but it's unavailable.
Also (and I can't believe no one has mentioned it yet) what was your inspiration for the "fro hawk"?
I will be getting merchandise soon and I will also have a new website. The “fro hawk” was something to set another trend … all the players started wearing the Mohawk the following year. Hopefully you’ll see me in another team soon …I have been working hard and I am ready for next season … and, I’ll have a lot of “new tricks” in my bag … lol!
Hey Freddie. Would you be interested at all in helping me or something with my Eagles blog. I would love your inside take on stuff...and I have 45 followers who would then notice you and likely come to your blog. Please let me know by replying to this comment. Thanks a lot, FredEx! :)
I will come by anybody’s blog that doesn’t belittle the athletes and that understands that they give 100% …
Hey Freddie. There is a lot I want to say, but in order to keep it short, I just want to say YOUR THE MAN!!! Stay cool.
Thanks Jason, hopefully you enjoyed the memories … all the good memories …
Hey Freddie. Please tell me you remember the "Freddie Mitchell stole my girl" sign from a preseason game at the linc about 6 years back?? That was one of the highlights of attending an Eagles game. All I can remember is you giving the guys next to us your gloves for making that sign.. Pretty cool move.
You know … that was a classic! Hopefully, I left you with a lot of memories at the “linc” …. BTW … how is your girlfriend … lol!
OK, here’s the real deal …. the top 4 or 5 radio and TV analysts that really know what is going on with the Philly sports scene … these are guys that the players and the people who know what the hell they are talking about agree are the ones you should listen to …
Ray Didinger … Comcast ….
Reuben Frank … WIP …
Hugh Douglas … he retired in 2006, but still was one of the TOP 5
Darrick Gunn … Comcast
Sorry, I couldn’t come up with the TOP 10, but there just isn’t that kind of quality of reporting in Philly … there are a lot of reporters, but they really have no impact in Philly …
