    Do you trust Oher?

    Infinitely more than Gaither. At least Oher puts in the effort and you know, plays on Sundays.

    I really hope this is the last Gaither thread we see. He really is a lightning rod for our fanbase.

    Here's the thing...

    You KNOW what you are getting with Oher. You know he might not play well, but you can gauge about how he'll play each time. You can GAMEPLAN around that to an extent.

    You have NO idea which Gaither you will get. If you bring him in and suddenly "oop, the back is acting up again guys...", you're basically back where you started anyway, but now, you have to decide if you carry him on the 53? Cut him? IR him? And let's say he does play...if he doesn't give the effort, he'll play as well as Oher. Do you immediately game plan that you are getting Oher 2.0? Do you expect him to do well, then watch with horror as he lets a guy get around him and strip sack Joe?

    On the radio yesterday, Scott Garceau was remembering the end of a Chargers/Saints game where Collinsworth noticed Gaither practically limping on the field, and actually CALLED the play to end the game...he said "I think the Saints DE (can't recall name) is going to blow past Gaither and sack Rivers". And sure enough, that's exactly what happened, strip sack, game over. And the next day, Norv Turner claimed he didn't see any sign of injury to Gaither when he was out there. But Collinsworth from the announcer's booth could pretty easily see it...

    That's the game... I forgot which one it was. I knew it was a primetime game...

    Being a Gaither "fan" still at that point, I very closely watched Jared's play all game. Before that last play(in which he was VERY obviously hobbled) Gaither was playing at a level I have not seen another LT play in a few years. A few years ago, Joe Thomas and Jake Long were regularly turning in superb efforts, but since their decline, not so much. During that game Gaither was DOMINATING his man in both the run game and pass game and made some great plays at the second level as well.

    See, but the thing is, IF Gaither plays on Sunday, it is basically guaranteed to be better play then Oher can even hope for. Obviously that is a big if.

    Maybe time to start a thread on how Boller really was pretty good ...

    Don't knock him. I saw him throw a pass 65 yards, from his knees, and hit Travis Taylor right between the numbers. Unfortunately, TT dropped it ... Bc

    Even IF the Ravens were to sign Gaither he'd injure his back signing the contract.
