so it's ok that a LB that didn't play at all in 2012 but appeared to play well in the preseason against back ups but a rookie LB that did play ball in 2012 and appeared to play great against back ups in the preseason is not ok?
I'll say this again....the Chiefs and Vikings left their starters in the game till the third quarter....it wasn't 2nd teamers he was making plays on.
And to all that think that he was gonna get cut....is there a link? Why would Harrelsons contract effect what we do as far as re upping people next year by having him THIS year? Having him as a rotational guy was important to our Super Bowl run this year....of course we all know he wouldn't be here next year....but in all reality 7th rounders get cut alot more tha quality backups...so to get a 7th really doesn't make a difference if we are already stacked with depth.
And to those that say , Harrelson would not have made a difference last year...lol....right. Leaving Aldon and Brooks in all game turned out to be bad, as there was no rush at all at the end of the year and Marvin no one said that Harrelson was gonna play 3-4 DE....lol
