Consolidation year for Anchorman - he stayed healthy and practiced all year for the first time in a long time.
2013-14 season will define his future in the NFL. He will either show himself to be a player, or simply another athlete whose measurables outshine his production.

How great would it be if he did play good this year? Just trying to imagine if their problems cold be fixed brought the draft and if their current roster just plays better. A rotation of Canty, Joseph, and Austin controlling the middle while hey draft a DE to apply pressure. They already have a few nice young players in their secondary. Could probably use some depth.
You realize he was hurt his first year causing to miss his second season of out all which may explain his poor play this year. So one year injured one year nothing's offer. Should he get another chance? Absolutely. Will he do anything with it? Have to see.

I think some of you live in a fantasy world. Do you really expect a guy who hasn't played football in two years and never really played football in the NFL to come out and be the next Warren Sapp his first year back?
Lets be realistic. He hasn't played in two years. This was his first time playing in the NFL. It'll take time for him to get his physical abilities back up to snuff, his stanima, and all the other stuff that comes along with being an NFL player. If your going to write him off at least give the guy a proper chance. Sitting at home on the couch wandering about Marvin Austin each sunday and saying man this guy is a bust is not a fair assestment all things considering.
I'm not giving up on him quite yet, but he's got to show something when camp starts.
