    Doubtful.

    I also don't believe that Burfict would be a good fit in Baltimore's 3-4/hybrid D. He is a good 4-3 linebacker.

    I was one of his harshest critics before the draft and i still thought he was worth bringing in as a UDFA, if not a late pick. Talent was there, his head just wasnt right and he had a tendency to get personal fouls. I didnt see the play in question, but I think hes proven to be a great value and some of those personal foul issues must have been corrected or this wouldnt be the first instance im hearing about.

    Look at it this way. Would you rather have Tommy Streeter or Vontaze Burfict. If we had drafted Burfict instead of Streeter, would you be upset or happy?

    Unless you're Tom Brady. Then you can drop-kick somebody in the nuts and no one cares.

    Hindsight is 20 - 20, but to answer your question = Burfict... Bc

    I'd rather not have shitheels on the team.

    I'd like to think the FO feels that way, too, and I think the results speak for themselves. Feel free to carry on as if character doesn't matter; thankfully we're here in the cheap seats and you're not hurting anything.

    Pollard was likely released due to the 'mutiny', not his toeing-the-line play.

    Stone wasn't a good player, and Brown's incident didn't happen in a playoff game.

    No, I don't want bad players with a propensity to take penalties after the play. But that's not relevant to the discussion about Burflict.

    Remembering the wrong Zeus incident I think. 2 unnecessary roughness penalties late in the 4th quarter of this game: http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs03/series?series=tenbal

    Yes, Brown's incident did happen in a playoff game. The year that Jamal ran for 2000 yards, Tennessee came to town for the Wild Card playoff round.

    EDIT: Okay, I see now, that we are talking about two different incidents. You are probably talking about when the ref hit him in the eye with the flag. I am talking about the two personal foul penalties against Tennessee.

    Sorry about that, I thought I put it in the right one. How do I move a post?

    I think both played a part in his departure.

    Pollard is a 15-yard penalty machine. If he keeps trying to demolish receivers, he's going to be suspended.

    He's not Aaron Hernandez or Suh. Still a great player I'm sure the coaches wish they got.
