In the first version Clayton mentioned Simoneau as one of the key losses.

I guess you can decide whether his opinion is worth considering.
mark simoneau...our former starting MLB and arguably the best backup linebacker at all 3 positions?

yea thats a pretty big loss considering we lost him and fujita and gained nobody

The guy hasn't played since 2007. Maybe we can sign another player to take his place on IR.

Re: And they are back to doubting us...

the fact they didnít have any brutal injuries


Really? Jamal Brown, clancy, evans, 3/4 of our secondary. That is spot on

we do that every year......sign players that are supposed to come in and contribute and end up either sitting or getting hurt

despite being on IR for the past 2 seasons he was still our best backup LB

being injured for 2 seasons doesnt mean he was completely done and being healthy for any amount of time doesnt mean you are immune

simoneau ran into a bad stretch of luck but could still fill in at any LB spot and play above the level of most backups we have now

This sounds like your "We don't sign guys from LSU" line Canton. Drew and Sharper are guys we signed that helped a lot. But I will agree we've had our share of free agent signings go down with injuries. Of course we've had our share of guys we got from the draft and trade go down with injuries too.

I was about to bring this up...... I thought by week 10 all the pundits said we were done BECAUSE of injuries. We spent the last 3 weeks resting all of our injured players, Grant went down, sharper was hurting, etc, etc. I love the offseason, it is filled with a plethora of alzheimers patients.

1. Your first statement makes no sense whatsoever.

2. What are you basing that second statement on?

he was our best backup when he was healthy....thats the first point

and just because he was hurt, doesnt mean he wasnt our best backup, it just means he couldnt play those seasons....who did we have as a backup that was better?

the 2nd statement is based on actually watching him play
