They just released Blount.


They did not fuck around there.  Is there an RB on the practice squad?

Josh Harris out of Wake Forrest on the practice squad.  Athletic but raw, there has to be a move coming.

Edit: I guess this is the best time to do it.  They are very thin at RB after Bell but they have 2 weeks to sort this out.

Tate released for being a malcontent, Jason Avant released by Carolina for questioning play calls. 

I'm more forgiving; fine Blount and move on.  Only problem is that it appears other players want Blount gone.  If that's so, it is a done deal.

Ben Tate cut by Browns.

Know what?  Fuck Blount, sign Tate.

I'd love to dream the happy dream that has our defense miracle-ing its ass into, well, competency, but that relies on several things.  First, getting back Polamalu and relying on a trio of oldsters (Harrison and Keisel as well).  Weren't we building for the future?  Great to bolster the team with vets, but I'm not seeing the young blood getting their reps.  Second, the aforementioned young blood -- why was Cam Thomas in for like 40 plays, getting his fat useless ass spun around like cotton candy, while Tuitt had about 14 and McCullers I think had 4 reps.  Fuck that.  FUCK THAT.  Third, I'm waiting for the magical transformation of the free agents, err, free agent.  I'm done with Cam Thomas, so that leaves Mike Mitchell, who decides to celebrate when we're down to another SHIT team.  And who can't figure that the ONLY thing you need to be sure of at the end of the 1Q is to NOT GIVE UP THE DEEP ball, and sure enough, Nate Wash.  FFS.  That INT-Tits TD swing just about had me ready to start a fucking bonfire.  Oh, and 4, 5, and 6, our Fr7 can start getting constant pressure, our Smurf DBs can stop getting burned, and we'll learn to tackle and stop the stretch run plays.  Not too much to work on thru the bye.

I don't even know what to say about the O.  Ben is elite, and then he's got bubble gum brains, and back and forth.  Crazy good play, crazy stupid play.  In beautiful timing with the WRs, no timing at all.  Every team sends pressure, racks up sacks, blah blah blah.  OL is schizo.  Haley is schizo.  I mean, was running ALL rush plays the first drive some kind of cutesy gimmick?  Yeah, I love how Bell took the game over once the OL got their groove and the DL was gassed, but everything in its time.  Passing game was stratospheric against the Clots and Rats, what's it done since?  Haley seems to really be pushing the issue with getting Martavis the ball instead of using him judiciously as a threat.  Totally misused Dri Archer, we'll dump him without ever figuring out how to utilize that speed.  Stupid screens that never work, passes to Will Johnson, never work.  

If I want a few hours of complete and senseless schizophrenic babble, hey, there's always the family at Thanksgiving.  Patriots got decimated by the Bungles, come back, show what it means to be consistent.  Are their offensive playmakers better than ours?  Brady, Gronk, Edelman... plug & play RB du jour... or Ben, AB, Bell, Heat, Wheaton...?  

Can they figure out who is going to return kicks?

This team feels like it's still in preseason mode.  I'm back to the glass ain't even half full mode.  Closer to fire 'em all than gee willickers, these guys might mount a dangerous postseason run.  Thought the Ravens game was the turning point; was wrong; Jets game was: back to the shit.  This win wasn't a climb out of the toilet, it's just a W.  We're still in the toilet.  We're one of the bottom tier teams, and we'll be damned lucky to win 2 out of the final 5, get to 9-7, and miss the postseason anyway.

Not sure this had anything to do with no carries vs Titans, but Steelers were upset w Blount's 8 yd loss on goal line run vs NY Jets.
