Hope is all we can have for that Oline. Maybe someone worth something will become available before the season and we can afford them.

Money is the main issue, that and us being stuck between a transition phase, and a win now phase.  Honestly if we wanted to win now we could have reached out to Wharton and several other decent FA's....but I fear age is the defining factor that made us not do it.  Wharton was coming off one of this best seasons last year, as well as Gross.

Its a chicken and egg scenario.  Cam's first two seasons we had superior oline to now but Cam held the ball forever waiting on Chuds retarded plays to develope.  Last year the routes were shorter and the oline was ok but the receivers could not shake coverage.  Better receivers and better plays called should help nullify any real drop off in oline play unless of course the drop off is catastrophic.


How can you call those plays retarded?  To me they were the most innovative and new plays in our recent history.  The offense did a lot, with less talent and a rookie QB at that.. 

He took one of the league's worst offenses in 2010 and transformed it into one of the top 10 offenses in 2011 with rookie quarterback, finished seventh overall in the league on offense, fifth in points scored, and set a new franchise record for total yards in a season

Oline is defintiely under the most pressure.  That's where a football team's success starts.  If you don't think it isn't the most important part of our offense and our success....just take a look at Bell getting blown backwards 5 yards off the line of scrimmage just about every other play, then cam getting hit, smacked in the head and having to duck out and run 75 yards to gain 10 yards total.  It's a very nervous and scary year for the emerging Oline....and I don't see how you can call it rebuilding when there haven't been any major pieces added...(besides rookie guard)

DWI doesn't exactly qualify as "what someone does behind closed doors that doesn't harm anyone else".


And again, the question of whether or not he should be allowed to light up or whatever has no relevance whatsoever; zero, zilch, nada.


You want to play in the NFL?  You follow the established rules.  I don't really give a s--t if you agree with them or not.  You still have to follow them if you don't want to suffer the consequences.


You're being paid millions of dollars to play a game.  People that do jobs which actually mean something like teachers, police officers, firemen, etc make considerably less than a football player makes.  As such, you can be set for life and have enough to provide for your family's future in a matter of just a few years. 


A great start on your future, or possibly even your whole life taken care of.  Plus fame and loads of perks, all for just a few years of work.  Heck, once your career's done, you can do pretty much anything you want.


And all you have to do...is for those few years...stay...away...from...trouble.


Not dedicate your life to missions work.  Not flagellate yourself when you have a bad thought.  Not live a monastic lifestyle.


Just don't do drugs and stay out of trouble.


That doesn't take a rocket scientist - or a choir boy - to understand, or even to achieve.


It just takes somebody smarter than Josh Gordon.


Obviously I know what DWI qualifies as, what I said earlier was that he blew a .09 while not injuring anyone else or causing any property damage.  therefore the people saying he should be banned for life or be cut, are just being the normal judgmental extremest of society.  That punishment wouldn't fit the crime, as I've stated there have been multiple players with DUI manslaughter charges who have continued their playing career, etc. People are naturally over dramatic when it comes to a celebrity.


And the disparity between an NFL player salary and a teacher, etc or other regular folks aren't the NFL players fault, he as well as anyone other human being is subject able to making mistakes etc. He doesn't control the economy or capitalism....which rewards people's interest, not exactly societies advancement. 


And of course the question of whether someone can use a prescribed medicine is completely valid, especially in a sport notorious for brain injuries and PTSD, if you don't bring those questions forward then the rules don't adjust, things stay the same, there's no advancement.  Just a bunch of guys getting knocked in the brain and living shortened lifes and not being able to seek alternative treatment based on someone Else's moral standards. 


The NFL isn't some perfect system, the rules are more so for show rather than actually caring about people's wellness.  My point has already been made several posts ago.

still doesn't prove Lewis killed anybody.



and as for the other...well another story with alcohol... can't understand why fans don't like players drinking and driving.


It doesn't have to prove anything, the evidence and events speak for themselves.  You can draw whatever conclusions you want to, the fact of the matter is if it had involved any other person they'd be in prison right now.
