All you need to know about Rolando McClain can be found out by looking at that picture that was posted of him getting arrested and seeming to be having a good time doing so. The guy is what I call a LOSER! If you're getting cut by th Raidas you know there's a problem. Keep him away from our team. We are building something good here, don't need him.

That's all it boils down to.

Just like I suspected, why would you release a malcontent #1 pick and fulfill his wish? They are going to pull a Haynesworth on him and try to get something for him in the off season.

Yep.
I think they're gonna make a stand against him. There's obviously some hard feeling going on here just like with Haynesworth. I doubt they'll get a whole lot for him considering his salary and recent performance. It sounds like it's gotten personal and they're not gonna just let him walk.

Which will not work because teams know they can just wait it out.

No one is a bigger Captain Insano fan then me. However this guy is just another Odell Thurman waiting to happen. And by the way a big part of the production we're seeing from Burfict right now is the fact that he's willingly accepted coaching from Marvin Lewis. Had he come to any other team he might have been no more then a blip on the radar screen.

Did the Redskins not get a 5th rounder from NE for fat ****? Same thing here, they'll get a draft pick instead of nothing.

Then there was another about his struggles covering LBs, which I can't find at the moment but is pretty evident

Then there's the fact that he's 37 years old, can hardly practice anymore and every week lately it's a "will he or won't he"

If there was one game this year I would completely discount for fletcher it's this one. This is the game after the "balance" issues where he probably had an undiagnosed concussion. That was, by far, the worst I've ever seen fletcher. Something was seriously wrong with him. I never said we shouldn't plan to replace fletcher. I said we should groom young talent to replace him... whenever we feel he's no longer the best player to start. I wholeheartedly oppose signing a pricey free agent ILBin 2013 when we have an 18MM cap hit if fletcher is still our starter. We'd be devoting too high of a percentage of our available cap to the position when there are other positions (like all 4 starting secondary players) which need upgrading more.

A few weeks ago I noticed that Fletch went from fan favorite - ageless wonder to over the hill liabilty almost overnite on this forum. I was shocked. Than as i watched him i started thinking - ok he is getting toasted in pass coverage. He is. Thing is though that our terrible safety play i think has left him exposed against opposing tight ends. I dont know? I think he still has game - im not so much saying he looks like crap or he has lost a step really. Im just looking at the clock and realizing that like i said , all good things come to an end and we need to start grooming another ilb real soon.

Thats exactly my point. We shoudl be grooming a young ILB to place Fletcher at whatever point he/coaches decide he cant start anymore. Unless we dont plan on Fletcher being our starter next year, we shouldnt sign a pricey free agent ILB. It just doesnt make financial sense given our cap situation. Now, if Fletcher retires after this season or the coaches dont think he can start in 2013, then by all means, cut fletcher and spend the money on a free agent (if we have it). Just dont spend big bucks on Fletcher AND another ILB at the same time.

Do you really believe though he'll be our starter in 2015, like I think you had said earlier?

I wouldnt say its probable, but i think its possible. I think he and Ray Lewis could both be playing at 40.... but not much beyond that. To me, the Fletcher is almost superhuman in his durability, and while his play has dropped some, its not as dramatic as some seem to beleive (he has one awful game, thats it). He takes very good care of him self, and he has wolverine-like healing abilities.

I dont think Fletcher's performance will decline steeply at any point. I think it will be a gradual decline. Its possible, at some point, the coaches will say, "we like you, but at this point your role on this team is as a reserve" or "you need to retire." But i dont see those scenarios happening. I think Fletcher will start every game until he has some sort of "serious" injury which ends his season/career. It could come Monday vs. the Giants. It could come in 2015. It will probably happen sometime in between, but i'm rooting for him to play as long as possible.

I'm going to lock this thread for now since at this point he's not going to be cut, but suspended
