Boid, I wasn't agreeing with you.

Busted knee? Yes, I would feel disappointed. But when it comes to something as serious as mental health and depression, I immediately forget about football and hope the guy gets better.

Agreed, mental depression is nothing to screw around with. What happens if Aaron Sears has a bad game, opens the newspaper and finds out he's getting ripped by the columnist? The perfect storm, he grabs some wire, finds a beam in his basement and the rest is history. If you aren't 100% mentally in it, sit out. No one is irreplaceable, Zuttah will do a hell of a job.

Funny...

but I was agreeing with you,.

The game is far from meaningless.  If someone needs you to spell out the import ance of family and loved ones, as compared to most anything else, then yes, most things are meaningless in that regard.


And I never once said anything contrary to what you said.


Except except, he is letting us down.  Knee injury (Carnell, dissapointing), ankle (Graham, disspointing), Mental (Gruden over McCown), undefined (Sears, starting guard not there)...these things are major letdowns.  I never said anything bad about Sears....I said he is letting us down by not being there.  What is so hard to read here?

Maybe he is upset Gruden got fired.  Maybe he is suffering from double vision.  Maybe he has a drug problem.  Maybe he is gay, and wants to come clean.  Maybe he hates football.

Maybe he is letting us down.

If he tore a knee up and was IR'd would you say he let "us" down?
Well at that point, I would say it sucks, because it was part and parcel to the game...something defineable.

At this point, we know nothing.  So by not being there, he is letting US down.  Even if he tore a knee, it would be a let down.  Yes?

Give it a rest.  Stop arguing semantics, and just admit it is crappy that he is not there.

What you are posting appears to be blaming the player. Since, as you admit, we have no idea what the problem is I don't see where that's called for.

It's disappointing he's not at the minicamp. Let's hope whatever ails him gets better.

Yeah...so he won't be letting us down on Sunday when his presence matters.

I feel more for Carnell than I do Sears to be honest with you. 

carnell was an issue that was obvious.  Sears could be suffering from laziness for all we know...

Sears, get well.  And come back TOMORROW.

Two letters....O.....G

He at least has the decency to play a position where he can be very easily replaced.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

As long as Mahan stays far away from that neck of the woods, I can sort of agree.

Much to my chagrin, this situation appears to be the only reason Mahan is still on the roster at his current salary.  I never understood why he wasn't apart of the cuts with Brooks, Galloway, Hilliard, Dunn, and June - now it makes some sense.

....or he could be suffering from too many knocks to the head or some other affliction not self inflicted.

I am trying to come up with a good combination Sears/Jett Travolta travesty joke.

I will ring in with one when I have it.

Well aren't you Mr. Sympathetic. The obvious concern everyone around the Bucs organization is showing over this situation indicates that it's much more serious than him just being lazy. Sorry if his efforts to get his life on track interfere with your enjoyment of a game.

Yeah, get well on Boid Fink's schedule or else.

Tell me, who's letting the team and fans down more -- Aaron Sears, who's out because he's dealing with what his own team says are serious personal issues, or Barrett Ruud, who's missed the installation of his team's new defense solely because he wants more money?
Ruud is disappointing as well.

But we are not talking about Ruud.

I am not bashing Sears, but he is letting us down.  I hope he gets better, for whatever ails him, but I hope he gets better so he can play this GAME that I cherish on Sundays...call me selfish all you want, but that is our relationship.

Sorry if I am not invited to his family picnics like some of you guys are.  But with that said, I HOPE he gets to good quickly.

What's the deal with Arron anyway? Is his career really over?

Z will do well.  But our depth at guard is shot...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!
