What I've heard: Everybody is really just waiting for the lockout to end to really get to talking about whats really gonna happen so I dont really know any of that stuff yet, plus I have a new job so I cant always be around anymore. But here is all I have heard...
Franks... Lazy! But will probably get another shot since this whole lockout thing is still lingering.
JN...Rumor has it his time has run out.
Finn....was cut! but is was at the workouts keeping in shape incase he gets picked up, plus he knows all the plays so they need him to teach the other guys.
Linebackers drama...who will we keep? Most say Wire stays b/c he is a locker room guy. Nicholas is out and so is Peterson. Not sold on Peterson leaving but depending on how this thing goes, its possible b/c everyone LOVES & believes in Spoon
Who's at workouts?
Linebackers...Lofton, Peterson, Dent, Nicholas, Spoon, Atkins, & Wire
Secondary...Grimes was there, and he got a new agent (CAA) so u already know he is tryna get PAID! I hope they pay him, he deserves it. No sign of Robinson in workouts yet but Bush, Franks, Owens, Decoud, Moore and Schillinger were all present. (Shill not running yet).
Receivers...Douglas, Agnone, Jenkins, Strickland, Harvey & Buckley
Backs...Mughelli, Smith, Johnson
Linemen...I cant tell u anything about them. Lol

Why are you trying to make it sound like he's a slacker & the team is throwing the new kid under the bus? We already know he can't participate and he's not under contract yet. What's the point in insinuating that he's not a team player in the eyes of some players because he didn't participate? So what if he wasn't there, what is your point?
CHILL YOUR BALLS SIR!!! Never did I say or insinuate he wasnt a team player or that he was a slacker! U are clearly trippin right now so I cant give u anymore energy. Read what I said, dont just come up with your own analogy please! I swear, all it takes is one! SMFH!!

too bad Moore is stupid, we could use some help in the secondary maybe Franks can pull a Moore too, eh

thanks ma'am! makes sense that Finn would want to work out to stay in shape, and for helping the younger ones, well, maybe he's trying to get noticed for potential coaching spots somewhere.
never would have thought franks, or anyone for that matter in our bunch would be lazy, esp not if they're trying to prove themselves, maybe someone needs to put him in touch with Jimmy Williams....just sayin
i'm with you on Grimes, he deserves to be paid, i hope it's us! I'm hoping if we're making a choice between peterson and nicholas, we keep nich. MP has had a great career, maybe there's a slot there somewhere for him to help coach up some guys, but he sure slowed down on the field. ok, that's it for me, cashin it in fore long. thanks for the input ma'am

There's no such thing as a team that won a Superbowl without a little luck.
Packers, Saints, Steelers, Giants, etc. Some luck. Same goes for any team that's really successful.

Guessing we might be going after a cb in Free Agency. One think this establishment does not appreciate or tolerate is lazy players. They have stuck by guys like Anderson because after a dumb start he has at the least played an adequate role. He is a bust by expectation, but he has not pulled a Jamarcus and that shows a lot about the maturation of his character, that being said, unless he shows out as a prime dt this year I ain't so sure the organization will look to .keep up the investment in him. It is possible because of his versatility but I think that is the best thing he has going for him.
Franks if he is indeed lazy, I wonder what happened he came in as a spark, to me he seemed raw but committed, I wonder what turned that light off, not getting game time? Perhaps. You would think big brother Lofton and the Daddy Lion would have been on that ass because they are motivated guys that breath different energies and intensities into the team not just the defense. I am not sure but picking up a vet like rogers might be the best way for us to go. Sure seems like the secondary will get a new face in there because unless we are going with Owens as number 3 we only have one good corner guaranteed at this time until we lock grimes up for good.
One thing that puts me at ease is the FO, works ahead and prepares, just wish we would draft corners that we are willing to keep. Regardless if who is in charge our cb's are often dubious. Our safeties are probably one of the best young pairing in the league I mean its year 4 for Decode and year 3 for Moore and they both have room to grow further but already seem to be mainstays for us. But seriously Houston, Jackson, Owens, Franks... you would think one would have stuck and been a solid cog if not an all out baller for us. Does any one think it might be partly to do with the db coach?

LOL, yes ma'am, my balls are chillin.
I wasn't trying to offend you, but you gotta understand how you are saying it, it's coming across like there's some ridiculous conspiracy of liars over something insignificant.
Think about it. If a bunch of people say he was there, then you come and say 5 player friends told you he wasn't, what are we supposed to think?
