as most of you know by now I don't usually post about breaking news. But this time I have to speak my mind. Something about this whole release makes no sense to me. Why would you release one of your best assets on defense? I understand he was suspended for 4 games but that does not qualify as a good reason to me for him being released. If that had been the reason I do not believe for one second Jeff Fisher would have waited till now to make this decision. I believe something else has happened while he was already in the doghouse. No way anyone can convince me that this is because of the ped issue. He must have done something else that we don't know about yet but mark my words I will find out. I believe he might have gotten it in trouble with the law or something else outside of football. And this time it was the straw that broke the camel's back. I hate that he was let go because he was so valuable to our defense with his ability to play the run. I love what Ray Ray Armstrong brings, I love what Daren Bates brings, I love what Alec Ogletree brings, I hate what Will Witherspoon brings "as a starter." I don't know about the rest of you but this move makes me nervous because while we have young backers that all have very bright futures, we are still in the present and I'm terrified of the whole that has been created in the linebacker corps.
what I want to know is why is it that what he did is so bad that we could not leave him on the roster until the last week of his suspension and since he would just be coming off suspension and after his stellar season last season why not trade him and get something out of this? I don't like the way we went about getting rid of him. we could have got something in return and I think that is my biggest issue with this release. I am hoping that one of these young guys can step up and grow up fast because this could pose a problem for what we're trying to accomplish. I'm completely on board with the move because I know Jeff Fisher is a players coach and if he made this move it was warranted. But it does not change the fact that we might have just been screwed for this season by possibly having a run defense that might struggle. throw in the fact that we are so young on the back in with our safeties and inexperienced we are going to struggle with pass so now we have to pass in a hole in the run game this is not good see the big picture people. We are going to start a season of very bumpy. Damn you Jo-Lonn Dunbar!!!!
