    In that respect, we remind us of Jared ( except for his paychecks).

    again, forgetting how great he played for almost 2 complete sezsons here. Far better play then Oher has contributed.

    Hater or see the total career body of work outside the "almost two good seasons"?

    Plenty of highly touted players have had "almost two good seasons" then flamed out. Do all of those done a dozen players deserve this unrealistic praise Gaither gets too?

    unrealistic praise? Really? read my post again, I call him a lazy POS that will probably never be the player he should have been due to work ethic and injuries... if that's unrealistic praise for player capable of being amongst the very best few at one of hte hardest positions in football I don't know what to tell you.

    The unrealistic part is the flat out HATRED for all things Gaither on this board. We got almost two great seasons from a 5th round supplemental pick for what ammounts to be almost free. Then he got hurt.

    But at least we can count on Oher to actually work to improve and play whatever position the coaches think will help the team.

    Michael Oher doesn't miss games with mysterious injuries, and will actually get up every morning and put in a hards day work for the Ravens... Gaither hasn't played more than 9 games in the last three seasons. Oher isn't as talented as Jarred Gaither, infact he has no where near the natural talent that Gaither has, but Oher has been solid this season and doesn't sit games out, that's good enough for me, you can't have all pros in every position.

    hmm funny how yu word that since his rookie year was his best... it wasn't even close until this year, but he still was better as a rookie RT. IMproving is something I have seen happen VERY slowly with Oher on the left, and NOT AT ALL on the right.

    Only baltimore fans find the injury to be mysterious. MANY doctors since he left have found the injury very easy to diagnose. He failed a physical and re-injured it twice already this year.

    Complain becuase the guy can't healthy, if you are going to complain about anything.

    Ansd you are right, Oher has perhaps HALF the talent Gaither has, it's a pity, as you said, he's been a far better player the last 3 years, by default.

    And yet Oher's has made himself in to an adequate tackle while Gaither probably won't be on the Chargers next year.

    ok? where have i disagreed with that? Oher, a first round pick, has VERY SLOWLY evolved to be "just" adequate at LT, where as Gaither, a 5th round supplemental pick, came in right away and was a flat out STUD. That's all I'm saying, the potential was ridiculous,and very poorly wasted away due to work ethic and injuries. It sucks thinking what could have been, but will never be.

    But the facts still remain.... Gaither is likely done in the league, irrelevant of injuries or character flaws, something stops him from getting onto the field, he's only played 9 games in 3 seasons, case closed.

    That development was hindered by being flip-flopped every year in the league.

    what case? all im saying is the guy gets too much unnecessary hate for a guy that contributed a LOT for how little we invested in him. That's an undisputable fact. Maybe in 5 more years Oher will approach the level of play Gaither put in in his sophmore year, first season playing at 21 or 22 years of age.

    says you.

    Many scouts willpoint out that he was VERY near a finished project coming out of school, as opposed to the movie telling you he played very little football. I think, my personal opinion mind you, that he has reached the ceiling that his far too small to play lft tackle frame allows him. Or very close to it.

    Well just agree to disagree then because the way you feel about Gaither getting to much hate is how I feel about Oher shouldering much more blame than he should.
