Heitmann -- he was good for a while, but now he's got a broken left leg, right leg, and neck injury on his record here. It's time to upgrade.
Rachal -- I can't count how many times Chilo just looks bewildered out there, as if he has no clue what to do. Sometimes he really does just do nothing, and lets linemen run free at the QB. We cannot afford to have a new franchise QB with torn shoulders again.
Sims -- too old, it's over.
Norris -- see above.
Baas -- Two horrific, costly snaps this season; one for a safety, one into the dirt for a huge loss at a critical point in the game. Add concussion after concussion among other injuries, and it's time he leaves.
Clements -- Where the frick did your instincts go? When your safety is setting up to make a pick, why the EFF would you smash into the receiver like a straight-up imbecile? You never look back for the ball, you play 10-15 yards off of players far slower than you. Double moves beat you 99% of the time. You're entering your 12th season. It's time to go.
Goldson -- You can hit, but you can't cover, and when you miss.. you miss bad. We can't have that.
Haralson -- You should be traded to a 4-3 team. You're better just rushing off the edge for the brief burst you have. After that, you can't even run down a fullback. If you can, you'll just whiff on the tackle.
Carr - You suck. Nothing more needs to be said.
That's about right as far as a list.
This pretty much sums up for me. Add to the list:
-Shawntae Spencer: still making stupid mistakes, still not a very good tackler, and it's still a bit of an adventure from time to time watching him try and locate the ball...still. If he's going to be someone our young guys are looking to as an on-field model, then I think he sets a bad example. We're trying to turn down the suck, not promote it through tolerance.
-Abrayo Franklin: can't sign his contract and show up to camp on time=kick rocks you big fat fatty. He'd be dynamite in a 4-3, but we're loaded at DT. Don't need a fat ass over valued slacker on our team. He can go somewhere in the division as far as I'm concerned. He doesn't deserve what he'll be asking for anyway and I'd love to see a division rival over pay.
-Reggie Smith: if you can't tackle, you can't play defense.
-our fat ass kicker: we don't need a creepy alcoholic wingman kicking our FG's.
-our old ass kicker: whatever. It's the least of our problems right now and Joe probably won't be here by the time we're good again. He makes quite a bit for a kicker with one bad wheel.
