To help build JC's confidence, I think he should play defense...for the Rams.

I can think of one better: The NY Giants MLB (I forget his name) we signed in early 2000's and never played a down. I think he came in the same FA class that OG Dave Foire who we signed from SF 49ers, who also played just a few plays of one game and retired due to a bad knee. Both in one year. Between the two of them we paid millions and they never played an entire game.

At least AA played some, although it was shit play.

But at the same time we probably wouldn't have found out about Pierce had Barrow played. Until that year Barrow was a NFL iron man, it was shit luck that he didn't play. Fiore had obvious injury concerns and was a risky pickup.

With our notoriously shaky history at QB, I really think screwing over Johnson was a huge mistake. He could have been a very solid QB for us for many years.

Deion is actually a great team player. Whenever his ex-teammates talk about him they always have great things to say about him. In Tim Green's book "The Dark Side of The Game" he had a whole chapter on Deion and how great of a teammate he really is, all the stuff on the field, the neon Deion primetime stuff, is just an act.

Yeah, but then we wouldn't have had the pleasure of living through the Jeff George era, let alone the Tony Banks Dynasty.

Re: Should Archuleta play defense Sunday?

AA has not played in the defensive rotation in the last six games. I see no particular reason why he should be playing in Sunday's game. The fact he's going against his former team is not reason enough to play him when he hasn't been productive. He'll probably see his normal duties on ST's.

That's not the first time I heard that...I find that odd since all I see is a complete jackass on TV.
Only Michael Irvin makes my blood boil quicker than Deion.

Irvin is just a moron, Deion's act is calculated and he's made himself a huge success with his persona.

Re: Should Archuleta play defense Sunday?

We all remember what a beast Matt Bowen was b4 he hurt his knee... wasnt it like 5 sacks in the first 3 games? But he was a liability in coverage too. GW was trying to get a guy like that in AA but benched him for being so weak against the pass... I think the signing wasnt a good one but hes a good enough athlete to play in the NFL and for us, maybe we should keep him IF HE WILL RESTRUCTURE to earn a chance prove himself. Plus GW runs a complicated D he might just having a REALLY hard time learning

God he sucks! Good thing he has a hot girlfriend. Search Jennifer Walcott. He screws us for millions then goes home and screws her. That bastard.
