I can't seem to quote other posts on my mobile so here goes:
"I don't care either way and agree that the media, and many people, look for ways to be 'outraged'."
- They do in many instances, there are so many times you hear action groups, media and supporters are outraged at things and you think "it's all about nothing". But some of what Hardy's done is deserving of outrage. Some isn't, but some is.
I don't wish he was still with us, I just wish he didn't have this off-field character while he was with us. We lost a great end (and we've been disappointing at pass rush ever since) because of his actions. I'm not going to call him a scumbag and hate him, I'm just disappointed he's left under these circumstances and still paying for it financially.
I wish him well in the NFL and especially off-field.
I laughed like f... when Big Ben done his knee in though.
Agreed. Fozzy and CAP are young so we're not looking at another D-Will to share, but Fozzy and CAP can take more snaps to take the reliance off is Stewart. They seemingly have safe hands, and don't go backwards too often (though too early to truly judge either) and they'll have Tolbert/Cam to help alongside them.
I like Olsen's words on the Funchess catch, saying he immediately went up to him and said "That's the play of the game". Obviously it was said before our weekly secondary/Norman game-saving turnover, but in terms of making a big play on third down despite a big hit (which earned him/us more yards) it was big.
Olsen's one of our many leaders and it was good for him to put an arm around Funchess like that, and will only aid his development.
