But but he got cut from *insert team name here* he sucks!...

31 posts in this topic

it all depends on how strong the team is at the position. like with that thomas guy from the cowboys....CB is as weak as WR for us. i could see people maybe being interested in an LB or an RB from the panthers, but not a WR.

he was a CB that was cut from a team that was weak at CB.

it's a valid way to judge. what else is there to go on? college scout reports? lol

why must you judge him right away? why can't you withhold judgement until you see him on the field?

why not? if i can't see how the team benefits from grabbing a scrub from a team that is weak at the position, i'm not going to pretend i don't and i don't feel it necessary or particularly helpful to keep criticisms or legit concerns quiet.

either way, it doesn't matter how good or bad you feel about a decision because until it's tested in games that matters (or gets cut before that happens) we won't really know how it will work out. doesn't mean we should all blindly agree that it is a great decision.

if you say it's a good call, you are judging him in the same way someone who says it isn't a good call.

The five we signed today will get us 8 wins easily!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While a player who got cut somewhere else may not always suck, it's VERY rare that they'll be a success with their new team. If you expect Fiametta and Clowney to be pro bowlers somewhere else, you're insane.

I thought that a good way to bolster the argument would be to cite all of the players who had been cut and went on to successful careers with other teams. But I couldn't really think of any off the top of my head. Maybe someone else can think of examples?

I think that would be a long list my friend.

you could find them. i'm sure, but the list of those who sucked with every team they went to would be a whole lot longer.

DT Dixon was cut from the Washington Redskins and now he's a starter on the Eagles defensive line.

I'm not talking about veterans who have already had successful careers, but have been waived in salary cap moves. I'm talking about players who have been waived in their first or second year, but caught on with their next team and had long and productive careers. Not saying they don't exist at all, I just don't care to look them up.

Jovan Haye is one that comes to mind. Evan Mathis could be considered. And when you look at guys like that, the OPs argument is even stronger that the chicken littles need more of a "wait and see" approach with these types
