    Listening to the fast lane, Dunbars failed tests were NOT PED's. Sorry if posted already, didn't want to look through all the pages haha.

    It's certainly true that they have character issues. And they are being fined for them.

    What's not known yet is if Dunbar has failed another test recently. We don't know his current condition. The guy could be a chronic problem. It may come out eventually. It usually does.

    Over and above these side issues is what do we lose on the field. I really liked his in the box toughness and tackling abilities. Having said that, as others have noted he was a liability in pass defense. We would probably have drafted his replacement next year and it's better for the Rams if we give the players we have the experience. Of course that would require us to start someone like Ray Ray over Spoon which I highly recommend they do. It doesn't have to be Ray Ray but you know my views about what Spoon brings to the table. My only issue with cutting Dunbar is the timing. I would have liked it much better if we had used the first four games to see what we have and then make the decision.

    I completely understand being gun-shy after the personnel disasters we've had to endure. I didn't trust the last 2 at all... however, Fish & Co give me a strong sense of security.

    Not to mention,,, john Dysfunction shaw, The Ring Leader of The Clown Show , is finally removed from the football side of our team. Billy D was his last remaining hire. So shaw's Stench has been gone for over a year now... look at how quickly things have changed for the better. Faster than most believed was possible.


    Trust in The Force... I mean Fish ... young Jedi. Trust him you should.

    PEEPS remember he had already LOST his position from last year to a rookie.
    Just how he was practicing since he wasn't going to play the first four games, HOW he took the decision to insert Spoon as the starter ,all factors.

    This aint yer 2012 JO Lon Dunbar ,furthermore remember WHERE we got him, Nawlins , where his first violation probably occurred we took him on as a manageable risk on the recommendation of........... Greg or Blake Williams ,we likely KNEW of some past "considerations".

    Nah no panties in a bunch here.

    I have trust issues. Until he's won a Super Bowl, I can't.

    That being said, perhaps there's something else going on. That's the only way I can justify this.

    Agreed on the possibility of something else going on.

    Many possibilities behind the scenes on this one. We'll see it play out after week 4 I bet.

    many possibilities, but if it's recreational drugs we're talking about, Fisher has to have a heavy hand on display for our young players with possible issues

    and if it was PED's, he might be a stiff without them, but even if not a very bad influence on team
    train

    So a superbowl is the only way to trust a coach. What if he loses said superbowl do trust issue remain.
    The snish has so far gave Street cred to a team thats been circling the drain so to speak for a decade. If not for a few bounces we would have been a +500 team last year.

    That's what I was thinking, that would solve all of our cap problems.
