of course this is the truth, i went into outer space over haralson,(got over it two days later) not so much so over johnson. we got rid of a fullback we never needed in the first place and got a more than decent backer to help us as i think aldon is out for a loooooong time
Who cares about Haralson or Johnson? We had no way of knowing Aldon would drink himself into rehab. Johnson would be inactive every week for us. Skuta did a very nice job against the Rams, and he was going up against Jake Long. Lemonier was also making plays. We're good.
Haralson was clearly a salary cap move IMHO. I wasn't happy with the Johnson move b/c he was OUR guy we trained for a year, developed and he played about as well (who played better?) as one could including ST's. So if he was on the team, if nothing else, he'd be active on ST both to rush the punter and in coverage units. Then he would probably have teamed up well with Skuta as a pass rusher. Cunningham will be inactive most likely, probably doesn't add any ST value and has lights years to go to learn OUR defense. This ended up being a one-step forward, two-steps back move IMHO...even with a late 7th rounder.
Now, address the damn NT and backup FB & OT spots!
