    Re: Gaither Back Spasms



    He's sitting on $9 Million in guaranteed money - and according to the article may not play this year. I have no doubt the Ravens knew EXACTLY what they were doing with Mr. Gaither and EXACTLY what they had.

    The Chargers were STUPID to give a 4 year $24 Million dollar contract to a tackle with a bad back and a questionable work ethic.

    Re: Gaither Back Spasms

    The crazy thing is Gaither without even trying is top 5 tackle so easily its a pain to see such sheer talent alone just go to waste, bad move by the chargers to pay him so much and not get 1/3rd of his services.

    And he will be back healthy in late November when the Ravens play him in SD...

    Re: Gaither Back Spasms

    I don't think it's a front. I think he has conditioning issues which causes tweaks and things like this to affect him more than others.

    But yeah, what 21 said...he'll be ready to go when we play him in November, and I hope we can beat him like a drum then, just so we can stop hearing the "Ravens stupidly ran Gaither out of town" crap.

    It's not a front. He clearly has back issues. while it might stem from poor work ethic etc, there is still an issue there

    Well, first, I don't think there are people really saying that now because if nothing else, everybody see's he has a really bad back issue.

    And I doubt we beat him like a drum...his play really can't be questioned and he shut Suggs down last year.

    Good grief. AGAIN??? Gaither should be inducted into the ROH with the amount of attention we pay to this guy.

    It always something with Gaither.

    I don't doubt he has back issues, I'm just not sure he's that eager - at times - to play through them. It just seems awfully convenient that he was able to play so well - and back injury free, apparently - late last year when his career was hanging in the balance, and now, with $$$$ in his pocket and an offseason of no problems, it flairs up again when TC arrives.

    He's definitely a talent when healthy and when he wants to be, I just think that the motivation to be that guy comes and goes far too often.

    Re: Gaither Back Spasms

    Yeah he might not be faking, but when the doctors tell a coach they can't figure out what's wrong, I believe it comes down to wanting to play and the man up factor. Toughness and Gaither may not be friends and the Chargers are left holding the bag. In other words, better you then me, signed Ravens Nation.

    See, but one of the worlds leading spine specialists had no problem diagnosing him...

    To me, the Ravens Medical staff have a very poor track record, to the point that i buy most other teams' doctor's then the Ravens. Any outside specialist would take prescedence over our team doctors in my mind.
