hjerry Posted February 11, 2012 Share Posted February 11, 2012 In the last few weeks, I have been browsing through this board, and there is one thing in particular that has stood out to me. That is the seeming hate that this board has begun to have for our established veterans. At first it was just people who were looking at possible non-scheme fits for the new staff, ala Turner and/or grimes, but now it has escalated to much more than that. People are demanding the trade, cut, or abandonment of Roddy White, Curtis Lofton, Todd Mcclure, Chris Redman, Jonathan Babineaux, Tyson Clabo, Stephen Nicholas, and Ovie Mughelli. I even read a Mock offseason where someone suggested that we should cut Matt Bryant who we JUST resigned. Now, I'll admit that I have indulged some of these ideas in my own mocks, but I am careful in them to say that I don't actually want them to happen. I mean can you actually imagine what our team would be if we were to release, trade and/or cut every person on this list? Are you all just insane? It is also compounded by the fact that most of these ideas assume that these established veterans can be easily replaced by either unproven rookies or already drafted players who have yet to see any real playing time. So please, for the sake of my sanity, dial back the cuts please. This team has enough problems without it losing everyone who has actually seen the field.
