  • Good for him, maybe fortune will start to smile on him now.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

  • Best of luck to him but those missing 10 yrs of competitive football, coaching and training is going to be hard to overcome. I wish him the best.

    A really strange tale. What was Wanetta's real story? How does smooching in the hallway lead to accusation of rape? But that is another post.

    EDIT: added a missing word.

  • The years lost can never be returned but I hope he has some success and can at least live a good life for the rest of his life. I hope he gets a good front office job by some NFL team if playing doesn't work out

  • Actually I was hoping that one of the worst teams like browns, Oakland er would have signed him. Maximize the possibility that he can earn at least minimum NFL salary for a year or more...
