    Not giving him a pass for his poor play, but it seems like more people want him run out of town than any other player and he was not the only underachiever on the team this year. As far as talking, this is not trash talking. The season is over and he just said he wants to return to form. Pretty obvious he needs to be better next year. Nothing wrong with what he said.

    In 2011 Tuck had similar issues but was able to get his head straight and we went to the playoffs. When the symptoms resurfaced in 2012, it was more disappointing for most fans. Some think he should have done better in 2012 but he was clearly not the All Pro player we need to have on the field. The downfall was not his fault but he didn't do very much to be a beacon in the dark and that can be said of a lot of our players.

    I just think that his body can't hold up to be an every down player in the NFL any more. I believe that if we reduce his snaps, we can increase his effectiveness.
    We just overpaid for a situational player this year (Osi) ... and look how that turned out

    Maybe mentally he wants to be there, but physically it won't happen. It's obvious that his body can't keep up anymore.

    Leaders have to keep their doubts internal. Show no weakness to friend or foe. I'm more concerned with his mental and emotional weakness than his physical decline.

    I think the problem people are having with Tuck was the body language. He seemed resigned to the fact that he sucked and couldn't get better and he showed it. The other thing is that he was the leader of the defense. When you have a high profile position like that you are going to get the criticism. As my old First Sergeant used to say "Lead, Follow or get the **** out of the way".

    He became more of a detriment and instead of saying..Coach, I can't get it together, try one of these young guys out...or something. He tried to stay in. He wasn't the only problem but sometimes you shake things up by taking out the leader.
