    The loss of Faulk (trev)

    I view this injury related loss as worse than meets the eye. Faulk was a very solid backup and an excellent special teams player at small cap dollars. He was not a star, but an outstanding role player and very good for depth. At this point, i see nothing that even remotely resembles a backup at the middle linebacker position that has ever set foot on an nfl field, and that doesnt even account for the fact that spoon is a converted outside linebacker. I hope the rookie is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but his is alas a rookie.

    To me, this is the kind of injury that a lot of people underestimate. The NFL is the ultimate war of attrition, and losing key role players before the season starts is never good news. It is certainly true that we knew for some time that faulk had the surgery and back surgery is almost always a significant operation. We should have seen this coming, but to me, i was surprised he was waived rather than put on IR. Lets see what balzer et al say about the reason we went that route.

    Ramming speed to all

    So Trev Faulk was released? Does this mean Tim McGarigle gets the backup job behind Will Witherspoon?
