“Yeah, you get tired of it,” center Ryan Kalil admitted Monday, after agreeing to talk to reporters he knew would pepper him with questions about defensive end Greg Hardy, who was deactivated shortly before Sunday’s kickoff.
“There’s nothing for us to do about it. We don’t have to make those decisions. I’m glad we don’t have to make those decisions,” Kalil said.
Can't say I blame Kalil. And no, nothing he said here either throws Hardy under the bus nor condones anything he might have done. He's just tired of being asked about it.
Citing Voth's story, Gantt added this...
Kalil’s one of the few players to say much about it, because it’s an unfair position to put a player in expecting his true feelings. Either support a teammate and incur the wrath of the mob, or rip a guy who may be back on the field with you soon.
And went on to say this...
Those within the team are expecting Hardy to play soon, if not this week. Putting him back in the lineup for a prime time game against the Steelers on Sunday Night Football would be unlikely, as blatant a sign of indifference as the Vikings have shown with Adrian Peterson.
A more likely scenario would have Hardy making his return the following week, on the road at Baltimore, where the attention will be on their reunion with Steve Smith.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but you seem to think this is new. Its not. The court of public opinion has always believed what it believed evidence be damned. Guilty until proven innocent, innocent after proof of guilt, etc...
Only thing that has changed is info (or dis/misinfo) travels even faster.
You could make a pretty good argument that social media has given The Court of Public Opinion some large teeth.
First. I do expect McD to get an interview or two after this year. But, with the way the league is Offensively, I just don't see him getting the gig. Maybe when a team that really wants a Defense he may get a shot. I just don't know when that may be.
Second. He has a sweet gig right now. It just may take the perfect storm of events to even get him to consider taking a HC job. Some guys just don't want that headache.
Personally, I don't want him going anywhere. He makes Rivera's job so much easier.
Ya wanna talk nightmare?
How about McDermott gets a head coaching job and takes Steve Wilks with him?

truth, let me state that harper has surprised me so far and played solid our first two games
i just don't see a big improvement in the secondary when he's in compared to godfrey
Coverage is Godfrey's weakness too.
I think the reason Rivera likes Harper is he's experienced and knowledgeable. And honestly, intelligence is an underrated trait for a safety. I'll take a safety who's a little less athletic if he doesn't make many mistakes.

Just make sure to kiss her goodnight. On the forehead
I came into this thread wondering who'd be the first to post that
Work, she started working in my line not so long ago. We're going to a tribute show, live music, something simple. A few brews. But before I was thinking of going to dinner, getting her some flowers and opening doors for her. Just because I am that damn awesome. But in all seriousness... I'm a little nervous because she's a real looker. 0.o
