Stinchcomb is at 300 which seems right. Maybe the reason why be played both tackle and guard last year was due to Bentley and Jacox being injured a bit.


Maybe he was kind of forced to learn both position just incase someone went down with an injury after Jacox and Bentley were out. This is an opinion and also gives people something to think about. That\'s it.

Does anyone know if Sullivan had this type of reputation in college? Or is this a new thing?
I don\'t know what he did in college, but when he finally signed his contract last year (July 31st) and reported to camp, he was not ready to go and he took quite some time to get used to training camp speed. Or that\'s what I seem to remember.

There are very few guys in any draft that are no-risk type players. You never know what is gonna happen when you give a 21 year old kid 7 million dollars. It is not Haslett\'s fault and anyone who thinks it is has some rethining to do...Hell, if someone gave me 7 million dollars, i would buy a 7 million dollar car. I would not be a good investment for any franchise.

7 million dollars is overrated.

i feel the same way jimbone... it\'s hard to expect any young, immature guy to make mature choices... he\'s getting paid a lot of money and with that he should make better choices, but that\'s in a perfect world. these guys aren\'t in college anymore, they don\'t have much authority (besides coach during the season), so it is hard to imagine these 20-somethings to make the best choices for the \"big picture\".

OK..we both agree that it is not Hasletts job to babysit this guy in the offseason. I am sure that they are told what to do in the offseason to make sure they will be ready when the season rolls around...some guys take care of themselves, some of them dont. It is kind of hard to tell which guys will do the right thing.

well, as an adult you are presumed to be able to make the right choices for the situation at hand. some do well at this, some don\'t. if you aren\'t mentally apt to making the right choices for yourself then you come to camp weighing 25-35 lbs. more than you need to. but its tough on these \"kids\" b/c they are let go in the offseason on their own to do as they want with minimal responsibility (eat right, work out, study play book, etc.)

maybe they should all move into Hasletts house. That way he can take care of them day in and day out.
