Never was a fan , wouldnt care one or the other with him. Actually at this point I am tired of all his stuff , his talents on the field dont warrant the team putting up with it.
Have to agree at this point. He hasn't done enough in this league.. production wise to be opening his big mouth. Time for him to put up or shut up... or get out.
Spell it with me . . .
He isn't some stereotypical loudmouth. He's had one spat with Fatty McRex and has been solid. He's not great, but certainly not as pedestrian as you would have us believe. He isn't a big play guy, but then again, neither are 99% of the players in the league.
Not a big play guy != SUX TEH BIG ONE!!!!!!!111!!!!!!
He has lasted as a starter through 3 regimes which makes your assessment of him, that he's nothing more than a loudmouth with no game, questionable.
Gotta disagree with you here. On top of his lack of playmaking skills and his atrocious stats last year, he has shown a poor attitude on numerous occasions. He was ready to bolt a couple of years ago thinking he was going to get the big bucks in FA, and made it very difficult for the FO to work with him. Then he came crawling back when no other team wanted him.
Last year he played into the whole Joey Porter drama and took a stance against the team about Porter being taken out of games. Truth is, after recording 63 tackles as a starting inside linebacker, he shouldn't be taking stances against the coaches.
He doesn't make big plays, he doesn't blitz well, he doesn't cover well, and we're 2-0 without him...his time is up unless he comes back a different player. He may not be pedestrian, but he's entirely replaceable as a starter.
