    Maybe he should be taking PEDs on the PET and try to write PEPs.

    If he not good enough, he's not good enough. He shouldn't have made the team out of training camp regardless of where he was drafted.

    Polamalu was kinda ****** his rookie year. Guess we should've cut him too.

    Yes, exactly the same situation. A first round pick, who we traded up to get, that was highly regarded versus a guy who was picked 4th, showed nothing in camp and barely made the team. That's entirely the exact same situation.

    it doesnt really matter what round they were picked in, especially the first 4 who are all expected to make the team and are pretty much on a level playing field.

    woodley was far superior to timmons their rookie year, but im not sure thats the case anymore.

    taamu is not a bad person, it was definitely a bad night but hes got immense potential within the scheme with his massive body

    hood and worilds have been consistently horrible, but they dont just cut them

    I think Hood and Woirlds would look better with Timmons/Minter behind them.

    or Woodley/Ogeltree outside...

    I think Ogletree can play ILB or OLB

    hood is supposed to make the LBs look good, not vice versa. theres no hope for hood, we do need him for depth but hes a painfully average player.

    worilds too....in such a plug and play OLB system, theres no excuse to not produce.

    Heyward needs to play more, and an OLB needs to be drafted....whether its high like jones, moore, mingo, jordan or if its chase thomas, brandon jenkins in round 2....worilds needs to be pushed, but probably completely upgraded.

    Obviously they are astronomically different situations, but was brought up due to your own point...

    Exactly.. But Timmons is the only ILB... Foote was Farriors backup he can only look so good... We have no second ILB

    If we had Timmons/Minter it would make evryone look better. And of course another OLB.. I think Worilds can do it or a third round OLB if we went other
