    Re: Chargers place Jared Gaither on IR



    Wow, Elvis Presley's last shit in the toilet didn't get this much consideration. The cops just flushed it, which is what should happen with Gaither.

I usually only take up argument when people say he faked an injury vs being lazy and not preventing/returning from it. Theres evidence to support that, taking that evidence of laziness and then claiming it proves hes a liar and cheat is a stretch to say the least.
    I'd hardly say the "faking an injury" side is giving "merely opinion". Yes, it's an an opinion but its an opinion rooted in a awful lot of evidence.

    The circumstantial evidence has stacked up quite a bit since his departure here. Now, as Ravor points out, even his own teammates don't believe him.

    I don't think he's faking an injury, but milking a slight injury for everything it's worth. There's a bit of a difference.

    Do you think he's 100 percent fit and has made the injury up out of thin air? Just wanting clarification on what you mean by faking?

    Re: Chargers place Jared Gaither on IR

    Friedgen had it nailed over 5 years ago:

    http://articles.baltimoresun.com/200...r-scott-burley

    By the way, I am not criticizing the Ravens for drafting Gaither. He obviously had the potential to be great; no harm in the Ravens taking a chance on him. It is too bad, for all sides, that it didn't work out.

    "I told them (Newsome and Bisciotti) what I felt," Friedgen said. "If he (Gaither) would just get away from some of the people he hangs around with, get his mind right, dedicate himself ... they got a steal."

    In his first public comments since Gaither rose from a struggling student to a supplemental draft pick for the Ravens, Friedgen tempered his high praise for the lineman by questioning Gaither's work ethic - a shortcoming that eventually cost him his starting job.

    "Sometimes he wouldn't work," Friedgen said. "I think I have to have some credibility there with my players. ... There were some days he didn't feel like practicing and Dane Randolph was practicing very hard."

    Gaither struggled...and was declared academically ineligible for the 2007 season. He hired an agent, though, and was selected by the Ravens in the fifth round of this month's supplemental draft. Asked at yesterday's ACC Football Kickoff whether Gaither has what it takes to survive with the Ravens, Friedgen said, "I hope he does."

    "Sometimes money is a great motivator," Friedgen said. "I think he's the most athletic big guy - college or pro - that I've ever been around. ... But he's only played essentially four years of football. His learning curve is tremendous. Now what he's got to do is have the work ethic to do that. I'm pulling for him to do that."

    No, I agree with you.

    I think when most fans say he's faking, that's the situation they believe is going on -- he's milking an ouchy, making it out to be far more than it is.

    Maybe malingering is a better word to describe it.

    Bcuase, if they wanted him to stay, they could have had an actual competition for the LT job that summer during training camp, but htey didn't, not even close. And that was the final nail in the coffin. It may have been the intent, but, if the intent was to motivate him, they failed miserably and really need to learn a thing or two abnout motivating talented underachievers. FWIW, in retrospect, I think they had already washed their hands of him. FWIW, i think that had a lot to do with their failed assesment that Oher was a star LT in the makings.
    Sorry, but learning how to motivate men making millions of dollars shouldn't even be in the equation here.

    That's more like baby sitting.

    Dude was handed an opportunity to man up and take one of the most coveted high paying jobs in the world and you're saying the Ravens should figure out a better way to motivate him to do it?

    There's a whole lot I'd do with more then enough self motivation to earn that kind of jack and be admired by the public that can only dream of having that opportunity.

    Re: Chargers place Jared Gaither on IR

    Yeah, it was all Harbaugh's fault :

    Even if the Chargers brass had some wildly nave/ignorant notion that Gaither would remain healthy -- or not pretend he was more hurt than he was, as virtually everyone in the organization believes was the case in 2012 – Gaither would not be welcome in the locker room.

    “I can’t even look him in the eye,” one veteran told me earlier in the season, after Gaither had sat out the first three games with a back issue that no one could clearly diagnose.

    On Dec. 23, here is what another veteran said, unsolicited, when ruminating on the ruins of the season: “----ing Gaither. He ----ing cost us big-time.”

    Several other players voiced similar sentiments. Some suspected within a couple weeks that Gaither was milking his back injury. Others didn’t get frustrated until September. Many held out until the end of the season. But by then, there were no dissenters.
    Asked if Gaither could ever return and be accepted by teammates, safety Eric Weddle was as gracious as he could be: “He could. It would take a lot of work to earn back the respect. And that’s not going to happen.”

    Lol why do people keep defending gaither? He's a proven lazy slob. Can't believe the chargers gave him that contract.

    No one believes this guy anymore. Gaither may be out of the league for good. Then perhaps we can stop bringing up this legend.

    I laughed so hard but also got real pissed. Can you imagine if he actually worked hard the year he was out for us? That would've made the offense so much better. With great protection, joe would've picked teams apart like Brady with both Jared and oher playing up to their potential. Of course he could've gotten his knee blown out or something but still. With his attitude, he'll be broke in 5 years. I wonder how many chargers fans troll his twitter?

    Re: Chargers place Jared Gaither on IR

    If he actually worked hard he could have been as good as Ogden. If he cant be motivated by the possibility of making $10+ million per season idk what could ever motivate this guy

    Jonboy was certainly confident that it could be done. Wonder if he has an opinion now that actual teammates of Jared's have confirmed that he fakes injuries to avoid having to work.

    What a way to waste the rare opportunity of playing in the NFL. Apparently we have the sequel to Gaither in BigMac from what I saw in that Cincinnati game. Let's stay away from lazy lineman for a while.

    Ha. Gaither fakes injury not to play. McKinnie is still able to play. Gaither is the biggest POS. Then again look who is agent is.
