    Wonder if we could give him to the Ravens?

    Contrast with Kemoeatu...he had a mean streak, but he had no brain.

    He seems like the type to do enough to stick around but isn't going to go above and beyond for the team. he would be the type to drop a weight on Bens foot so maybe they told him to stay away.
    You just described the majority of NFL players, heck, no, you described the majority of PEOPLE.

    They say he is an easy follower, so if we have leaders who don't accept lazy play, he will be groomed into a decent player. Are we forgetting that Max Starks had many of the same things said about him? We won 2 SBs with him as our LT.

    It says "Fall" on his calendar, year-round.

    The write up was spot on... he isn't rehabbing he is hiding.

    Softer than a leaky implant.

    Well, we won one Super Bowl with Max as our RT and one Super Bowl with Max as our LT, but the point is nonetheless taken.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I sometimes wondered if Starks had the fire or the competitiveness to play football, but I always thought he was a bright, alert man. Gilbert strikes me as semi-conscious, almost like he has sleep apnea. I hear he snoozes during meetings. For a heavy man, who is over 300 lbs, to allow himself to free fall backwards in a crowd, is an extremely thoughtless act. Even if his set was not strong, nor his leverage good, once he felt himself going backwards, he should have fought with all he was worth. He should have curled to the side or crouched. He should have never free falled, totally stretched out, blindly backwards. That is very dangerous. That he would do that once is very upsetting. That he would allow that to happen, three or more times is appalling.

    I thought he was a good prospect last year also. He has the size and the physical attributes that you want. But sports requires mental alertness, and I am so steamed at him right now, I wouldn't care if he didn't return. If he does, he can never, ever allow that to happen again.
