Oh we're hurting. What else would you call having the worst defense in the NFC. I doubt Smoot's departure is the only reason but it's part of a cumulative problem with undervaluing our personell.

We weren't hurting when he wasn't with us last season.

I was about to say the same thing. I thought he was adaquate as a cover guy, but he had a little Dieon in him when it came to tackling. GW tried to get him to be physical, and put that shoulder in there, each time he tried he hurt himself. Not a real tough guy in my opinion, he could really talk though.

I hate the line of reasoning he takes. It is followed by ' well just look at all the players in the L? what color are they?'

Well what color are most of the Professors at MIT? What color are most of the scientists at DARPA? Does that mean that we are stupid?

I am a black man and I hate the Irvin Bojangling act.
why does a cowboys fan have to be the voice of reason around here? i hole heartedly agree with everything you have said in this post

I was keeping it low key because I thought we weren't suppossed to talk about it. Notice I buried it in the Smoot thread. There seems to be a gag order in effect.

I think that rather than hoping this blows over, ESPN should take this opportunity to encourage Irvin to get some help. It seems rather obvious to me that Irvin has a problem. If they cared about him, they would either make him go to rehab or fire him.

Fair point. I guess what I'm trying to say is his departure is symptomatic of something bigger - i.e the fact that the importance of chemistry and role players is sorely overlooked in this organization.

By the way, where in Connecticut are you from? I was born in Stamford and grew up in Weston. I'm kicking it in Venice beach now though.

He sure knocked the shit out of one of our guys when they embarrased us to start this miserable year.
