    Iloka cut?

    Surprised by the move and now worried about the depth at safety. Money was the main reason behind cutting Iloka and perhaps the savings will go towards an extension for Atkins/Dunlap. I kinda sorta agree that his play had been slipping to some extent, at least last year and last night. He's never been a ball hawk and the new staff has no reason to be loyal to him. I have no doubt he lands on his feet and I won't be surprised if he does well. Bates and Fej are both going to play major snaps unless they make another move and they are not proven players like Iloka. That's a problem that we didn't have yesterday.

    Potential on Offense

    I don't rule out Boling sliding over to LT if Glenn goes down. He did it last year and played better than Ced has at any point. The right side is in flux and if Hart goes down we're left without good options. It'll be hope and pray that Pollack can coach up the twin busts.

    Potential on Offense

    Who knows if any of these guys will play well and hindsight is always 20/20. You were in favor of over investment in the OL prior to the draft and personally I would not have had a problem with it had they gone that route. I am comfortable with letting Pollack work with the new players we added and hope he can get more out of what we already have. I never viewed this as a situation where everything could be fixed in one year. Too much has to go right in terms of health, development, and opportunity. Getting rid of Alexander and Bodine was a good start at least.

    I thought they did GOOD.

    Tate will have to play his way off the roster at this point. Core would probably be the odd man out if they keep 6 receivers (AJ, Boyd, Ross, Malone, Erickson, Tate). Erickson is safe because he is valuable for ST.
  5. Lapham seems to think Hart has more potential than he showed at times with the Giants. His best year was 2016 when NY last made the playoffs. Last season was ugly on and off the field for him. He looked slim and trim when I saw him at camp, which is probably helping. Having been cut and his NFL future in doubt, I would expect him to be plenty motivated.

    What a dipshit.

    That quote is insane and also not that surprising coming from Ray Lewis. The way he wraps himself in victim hood at the mere thought of explaining his actions is sad and reinforces the perception that he is hiding something. The fact that the team was also a willing participant in shamelessly keeping Lewis from having to answer questions is also messed up. It's hard to think of a similar situation with any player, let alone a HOFer.

    What a dipshit.

    Good find and I read that article a few days ago. The amazing part about Ray Lewis' connection to the Atlanta murders is that he and the Ravens effectively buried the truth from ever coming out. The aggressive treatment towards anyone asking legitimate questions is a clear sign that the answers to those questions will not reflect well on Ray. Yet there was never any serious opposition to his enshrinement in the HOF despite his history because his play overshadowed everything.

    What a dipshit.

    Exactly. Some of the HOF voters didn't want TO in period. Others changed their votes after he had been taught his lesson and made to wait a couple years. Either way, those voters were either playing games or hopelessly biased. It's not like TO was a borderline case, IMO.

    What a dipshit.

    TO is right that he should have been a first ballot HOFer. The fact that he wasn't speaks to the politics of the process. That said, many of the actions held against him were self inflicted and frankly petty on his part. If TO were intelligent and not a giant man baby, he would have attended the ceremony in Canton and used that platform to blast the selection process. FWIW, I believe he stayed away in no small part because Moss got in on the first ballot. His ego couldn't stand sharing the stage with a player who surpassed him, IMO.
  10. I prefer the combo of Glenn and Hart over Ced and Fisher. They may or may not be in trouble but at least they aren't rolling out the same guys and praying they improve. I still think removing Bodine and Alexander from the equation is a win by itself. The oline wasn't broken in a season so it will probably take at least a couple to fix it. Personally I am hoping for improvements this year so they are at least closer to average. I will give Pollack a chance to work with these guys before declaring it a failure.

    Lafell released

    Cutting Lafell is a salary dump if nothing else. The savings can be put towards Dunlap's extension. It also keeps Lafell from taking snaps from Boyd/Ross/Malone. They have to be pleased with the progress of the younger WR to make this move. AJ is the lone veteran on the roster now.

    Urban Meyer, anyone?

    Incorrect. The texts being reported are to Meyer's wife. Like I said earlier, it hard to believe that she never told him, but right now they don't have evidence that she did. Hearsay doesn't fly in court and it could be easy for OSU to say the evidence doesn't prove it.

    Urban Meyer, anyone?

    Michigan State didn't fire Izzo or Dantonio after players and even assistant coaches sexually assaulted people and they did nothing. There's no rule that says you have to give in to mob rule or the media.
  14. From what I read, working out with TJ has really helped Ross. Both on the field and with his attitude. It's hard to help someone who shuts down when things go wrong, which Ross admits happened. Nowhere for him to go but up. He at least has had a full offseason and enters this season healthy. What he does with it is up to him.

    Urban Meyer, anyone?

    I've seen plenty of guys dodge serious penalties when they are the best at what they do, in all walks of life. Meyer is an all time great college coach. It won't surprise me at all if he keeps his job. OSU is only reacting to this situation. If they can ride out the initial firestorm, they will use any wiggle room they have to keep him. His wife might lose her job and he might get a token suspension or fine, but I believe they want to keep him. This isn't like Pitino where they have recordings and wire records.
