[quote][color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]The truth is Long has not been playing up to his previous standards. The truth is Long is in the third season of a progressive decline because he played better in 2009 than in 2010, he played better in 2010 than 2011 and this has been his worst season so far.[/font][/color]

[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Publicly, Long is putting on a good face and chiseled chin on his troubles. When he was asked this week if he’s playing as well now as last season he said, “yes,” without hesitation.[/font][/color]
[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]But privately, everyone knows that isn’t right. The truth is Long’s play has fallen so far off from an elite level he is more often mired in mediocrity than lifted up in excellence.[/font][/color]
[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]He has allowed four sacks this season.[/font][/color]

[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]His run-blocking grades have rarely been the best among Miami’s offensive linemen. He no longer is playing like the best tackle in the NFL. He’s not even playing like the best tackle in his conference (Houston’s Duane Brown is that) or division (D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Nate Solder have been better).[/font][/color]

[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]The illustrations of Long’s 2012 struggles are startling and almost painful to watch.[/font][/color]
[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]You saw him struggle against Indianapolis linebacker Dwight Freeney in a loss to the Colts. Long could not consistently keep up with Freeney’s quickness and spin move, and gave up a sack, a couple of pressures and also committed a false-start penalty.[/font][/color]

[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Afterward, Long made the point that Freeney is a great player who has given many offensive tackles difficult days.[/font][/color]

[color=#1A2732][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]That was true five years ago. Now Freeney is 32 years old and that sack against Long was his only one in November. He has two sacks this season and that ranks him tied for 97th in the NFL.[/font][/color]

Cut every player on our team and sign all the best players in the league. I don't get why nobody does that. I would

Nah.. From what I see, he seems to have trouble staying on the field. We don't need any more injury prones.. If the new gm comes in and guts the team to make moar cap room, I'd rather him make a splash in fa on another need based on whose available.

If it was Joe Thomas we were taking about, then fug yeah

He'll have missed 6 games in 5 years. What a bum.
