    Just my opinion that Clowney's pre-season negotiations were caused by bad agent influence. He changed agent toward the end, and finally signed for something like $12M IIRC. Also my opinion he would have been our best DL had he signed with us.

  • I saw a couple of nice plays from him tonight. The one tackle for loss was perfect. He also got dragged from the backfield by an RB several yards who got a first down. He played the run pretty well, but little pass rush at all.

    A good player at $5-7m per year. Problem was he wanted elite pass rush money. He needs a major production push going forward to even justify his current salary.

  • Jadeveon Clowney is a good football player, but the best massive bust Tennessee's ever seen belongs to Ms. Dolly Parton, amiright?

  • ... wasn't there a thread recently about how terrible a GM we have.... I'd bet 90% of other teams' GMs would have kept Clowney as opposed to going into the season with the PAssrush the Seahawks had....

  • This is the kind of thing that happens when you miss training camp every year.

  • This is an example of what happens if you play football for an extensive amount of time. Russ is like some sort of super human athlete. Unbelievably fortunate regards to injury. Bobby Wagner too. But other than those two, who else on our team has escaped loss of significant PT to injury? Anyone?
    There's a reason why the average pro football career is something like 4 years. That's why Lynch preaches "take care yo chickens".

    Not really, because they spent that money on Olsen, Finney and Ogbuehi. Also $6M for 2 games of Irvin.

    they dodged a bullet in not spending an additional XX mill on clowney. Doenst matter who they signed before. They were still in the market for him and passed.

    Good decision.
