    Wheaton is garbage. He's had plenty of chances and he's flopped. Bryant is an absolute unknown and we can't put our eggs in his basket. There is no guarantee he will be reinstated by the NFL.

    Hamilton, Coates, Bey??? Nope. We need to go get a veteran to help out Brown and Rodgers.

    I just read an article about Ben talking about retirement and taking it one year at a time. It really irks me that he went public about it. I don't want to hear about his possible retirement every year for who knows how long. It just feels like "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." He needs to just keep that crap between himself and management until it is a done deal. I don't want another damn Brett Favre 2.0.

    Ben is just doing this to keep Tomlin on his toes. He has to. Look at how out of control the team got last year.

    Tomlin had better learn to have a heavy hand with players when they step out of line. Brown would have never video taped our private player only meetings if Bellichek was his coach. Never.

    That shows you the lack of respect by Brown for Tomlin. I'd have hit Brown with a monster fine he'd have never forgotten for that stunt. With that being said, I'm on board with drafting another Wide Receiver next year and preparing for Brown's departure in 2-3 years. That's how you treat those situations; you send that player a message by drafting his replacement.

    Not to mention Joey Porter's stunt of fighting; He's suppose to be a coach and again hes out there fighting during the playoffs.
