But I seriously doubt he would on purpose call bad plays to a given situation just to make it less likely that he would have to tackle somebody... if that is what you meant?!

But don't you think that if he had been doing that SP and GW would have torn him a new one instead of putting him on the field at key situations? They certainly would have noticed that type of a tendency in the film study sessions...

I would guess personally that his lack of tackling last season was due to the fact that he wasn't 100% in any of the games he played - if your knees aren't working it is very hard to create the momentum necessary to successfully tackle a NFL player.

This seems like a two man race between Fin and 65.

I think Vilma still has somegas in the tank. Just needs a good coach.

Big Willy "Ain't done nuthin lately" Smith; on the other hand.... pack yo bags!

Thanks for the heads up! I was wondering what happened with the guy.
