Don't know if Talib was telling the truth there, but if he was... I wouldn't hesitate to shoot my sisters husband if he were beating on her. But fortunately he's a good guy, so far :P

I was more so referring to your "being jacked in the head" comment with Moss. Hall of Famer or not, still willing to gamble.
He may have been a head case earlier in his younger years, but at this stage in his career/life, that's debatable. That said, I don't have issues with the Saints willingness to give guys with character issues second chances... as long as the risk factors aren't outlandish. 5-20 years, that kind of fits the bill. Now if that weren't the case, I would definitely kick the tires on his talent if the price was right.. I think he fits Spags' system perfectly minus the baggage.

Giving second chances is great, of course they can backfire, but occasionally you get a very happy ending like with what happened with Hargrove.

If its true....hell yeah it is. But we won't know until after the investigation. Until then thats just his story. But if its turns out thats what happens after the investigation then I have NO problem with what he did. Thats his flesh & blood he has an obligation to protect his family from harm.

I don't know if he's a real head case or someone who has other issues that can be addressed. He's talented and might be worth a lower round trade but certainly not the 3rd or 4th round . I'll give him a chance. We do pretty well with retreads. Of course him being unavailable for court and jail time might be inconvenient.
