    That CJ play was a fluke. More bad tackling than anything great from CJ.

    Griffin has never been that good. Simply put.

    Thats just not true. He was good at covering people back when we had a good dline and he was able to play centerfield. Now if you would have said he has never been that good at tackling then I would agree.

    ... basically you mean, he was decent at catching interceptions once they bounced off someone's hands?


    Only thing he's ever been good at. Having ints fall into his lap.

    Yeah. I don't think he was ever really "good." When you're on one of the best pass rushing teams in the league, they make up for a lot of your issues. He was exposed once that went. He sucks.

    I'll admit, I was fooled by him back in 2008.

    I've asked him repeatedly on twitter where that old player went, he's still mad at me though, so he never answers.

    But yea we need that Griffin back, not this "I might get finned so I'll just tap you" Griffin.

    Holy crap, stop talking about how you harass players on Twitter. It does nothing positive for the team and it just makes you look like a giant douche.

    As for the Griffin video, I had never seen it. It really does look like a different player at times. My best guess as to what happened is that his body is breaking down and he's now much more afraid of hits and pain. He might even have been juicing at that time and maybe he's subsequently stopped, which would make his body even more vulnerable. That's just pure speculation, though.

    He's also been pretty good at forcing fumbles!

    When I don't know something, I admit it rather than faking it. Apparently on this forum, that's somehow seen as a bad thing.
