    Vrabel:

    "Yeah I think that we're comfortable in the person that we brought in here," Vrabel said. "And mistakes — again, we've been through this — me, personally, obviously. Kids being in college, coaching in college — there's good people who make mistakes and there's bad people, and I don't think Isaiah's a bad person.
    "I do think that part of what we do as coaches is to be able to get these guys to help us and help the team win. But it's also about helping them off the field and their health and growth and maturity and the men that they become.

    "Certainly, we're not — we don't condone that type of behavior, whatsoever. It's unacceptable, but as long as there's an honest effort to improve, we're going to put forth that effort as a coaching staff and organization to help any player we have, with any issues that they have."

    "I think that Isaiah's a good-hearted kid, good-natured kid," Vrabel said. "He's been since his time that I've been with him. We've been engaged, engaged in the meetings. But again, having some setbacks and some adversity early on in any player's career can kind of go one or two ways — you can make some positive change and kind of get this going or guys don't and then they kind of fade away. But we're all going to face adversity in anything that we do in life. This just happens to be with football and then the things that happen outside of it. So hopefully, we can all come together and help and Isaiah can improve and start helping the football team."

    I hope he gets his crap together, losing Conk hurts. Hope he is that #1 pick the team envisioned.

    Hmmm. A lot being said between the lines with that statement. Not good IMO.

    I read it as... "He needs to get his **** together, we will be here to help him, but his first job is to be a football player, and if he doesn't put it together, we will let him go by the wayside." Or that could just be me.

    Maybe this incident is the 2x4 he needed to get on track. Hope so as I hate wasting high draft picks.

    That's how I interpreted between the lines also. Vrabel saying they're doing what they can as coaches but the "one or two ways....." statement suggests nobody on the staff will lose sleep not letting this guy see the field.
