First, to argue that Lavar is not the best athlete on our defense is insane (not that anyone would); but to argue that he isn't the best player when he hasn't been privy to the same year of coaching that has made probowlers out of scrubs is equally mad, or at least shortsighted. Remember how Lavar played under Marvin Lewis, before George Edwards basically sent him out there to run around and jump on people? Or remember how the patently inferior Lemar Marshall played in Lavar's stead under Williams' coaching. It's not a coincidence that a group erstwhile bums all became good players at the same time

Before we turn on yet another Skin let's at least accord him the same opportunity enjoyed by his defensive peers.

VERY, VERY Well said.

fyi, there actually are certain people on this site that have tried to argue that Lavar is not the best athelete on our defense. I won't mention names. They know their folly.

I won't argue whether Lavar is the best athlete. We have several "best athletes". S Taylor, C. Portis, LaVarr, and M. Washington come to mind. Pretty hard to rate one above the other.

I never thought Springs or Griffin were in various stages of being washed up. I thought each of their signings was dependent on several issues, injury and their past productivity inclusive. But not washed up. Me, well, I AM washed up! I'm twice the legal age, and over-weight! So, any attempt to sign me would have been a total wash-out!

I've heard a couple of sound bites, and read both the Post & Times on the Press conference. I do agree with the Sports Reporters, 980 Sportstalk, which I was barely able to tune in here in Norfolk, VA. Their assessment was: Why have a press conference for every little distraction such as Arringtons outburst, and S. Taylor and Moss's absence?

Now THAT, I agree with! We have the NFL Draft that the coaches should be concentrating on. These other "minor" blips will be over and forgotten the day after the Draft, and a long distant faded memory come training camp time!

If we take a page from the SB Champion Patriots, who would never have a press conference for such as this, we should do exactly as they! Never even acknowledge it in the press or any other setting. Of course, then, what would we have to talk about?
