    Give him time. He comes from a completely different system.

    He has played fine other than the past two weeks IMO.

    Didn't he put a huge hit on Boldin in the endzone to knock the ball out in the Ravens game? He is having some issues here and there, but he was recognized as an experiment for us. That's why he only got a one year deal.

    One of the plays I am thinking of may be the one mentioned about (Boldin), but I doubt it. Twice he has played too soft in the redzone (when the opposing offense was inside the 10 yard mark) and a TD pass has been made right in front of him. Both times I feel like he recognized the TE coming into his zone but didn't want to anticipate that throw in case someone else was coming into his area.

    At this point I would have rather kept Tulloch, but yeaa....hopefully he can start going off of instinct. I feel like Tulloch would have blown those players up causing either a drop or tackled just outside the goal line.

    We couldn't have afforded Tulloch.

    Well, we could have afforded anyone if we told CJ to stay home and STFU.

    McRath was suspended for the first 4 games of the 2010 season for violating NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Last I checked weed does not enhance your performance.

    I wouldn't mind giving McCarthy a shot but this next class of LB's in the draft look really stout. We could probably get another one in the 2nd round like we did this past year that could come in and make an immediate impact.

    I have been very disappointed with Ruud this season, he just looks so mediocre all the time. Ayers and Witherspoon though I have been impressed by. But Witherspoon is getting up there in age, and Ayers is a rookie, we need to address our LB situation this offseason, it's not of first round concern but it's not where I'd like it to be either.

    On that subject, has Ayres been good?
