Nice to see a good player leave the division, good news.
Well, at least he won't be hurting us anywhere else.. He will likely retire after sustaining a serious neck injury last year against Seattle. He visited a specialist in LA, who confirmed the failed physical in New York. Sucks to see him go, I never thought it would happen like this.
EDIT: well, according to his press conference, he is excited about going out and helping another team when he gets healthy. but, he doesn't sound too optimistic about passing any physicals or being cleared by doctors. he says he's just enjoying life right now, not worrying about his future playing career. sounds like he may come back strong next year, or maybe he can get healthy enough this year. i'm just glad he didn't go out saying "I'm done. I'm not healthy enough to play football".
The problems this presents is more of a loss of leadership than talent. We will now need someone else to lead our front-seven. As far as a replacement, I think DJ Williams should be moved to the middle, where he can get more snaps (which is what Jim Bates wants). Gold will stay at WLB and we will likely look for a good SAM prospect in the draft.
Are you joking? I'm not going to get into the whole debate, but the entire system is predicated on cutting out the knees of guys who are busy with somebody else. It's basically the football equivalent of the sucker punch.
Sure it's effective, and sure it's legal, but that doesn't make it clean. I've watched too many donkos put dirty hits on other teams for too many years to blindly think Shanahan isn't encouraging that ****.
Sounds like sour grapes from a fan of a division rival.
Oh I'm not denying it; however, there's a difference between sour grapes and just getting sick of watching players go down playing these guys. Jamal Williams, Drew Brees, Igor Olshansky, have all been victimized by pretty ugly shots by the Broncos, and that's just the last couple of years.
