First off I'm appauled that Jamari Lattimore isn't starting anymore since Brad Jones has come back. And probably even more appauled that he doesn't even see the field anymore on the defensive side of the ball. It didn't take a genius to realize that he was OUR BEST defensive player during our 4 game win streak. I was actually giddy watching the guy. He snuffed out some screen passes, stuffed the run. Not just make tackles, but stuff some plays for losses Mr. A.J. Hawk. Maybe you should watch some of his game film. Now Brad Jones comes back, and nothing against Brad but he just isn't right. He quite frankly has played horrible for two straight weeks. And I actually like Brad. After the Baltimore game, Baltimore's linebacking core and defensive side of the ball was impressed with how intense and aggressive this young man was. Really, Baltimore? The team that others would use as an example to match their tenacity. Is this a case of money? The fact that we paid Brad a big contract and cut Desmond Bishop because of it.
There was some bad plays yesterday on both sides of the ball. But the thing that just got me absolutely wild was a DESIGNED run play to the right side of the field. And our RT, Mr. Marshall Newhouse never layed a finger on anybody on that particular play. Our back got devoured for a loss. He more or less had to get out of the way to not block anybody. Yes, missed blocks or assignments happen, but move on and atleast block somebody. Then he did his famous turnstyle look at the guy laying on the ground after the play. Which is the same thing he did after a sack. If Derrick Sherrod is healthy enough to be active then he should have been in there. Marshall needs to be cut TODAY! Yes that's how bad he looked. I have not seen a guy look this bad in a long long time. And if Derrick wasn't ready then TJ Lang probably should have been slid over, but I know they don't particularly like doing that.
Those are my two biggest rants at the moment? Thoughts? Any more rants that are tearing in your guts?
