Leave Bigby Alone!

Leave Bigby Alone!




Lately I’ve been hearing about Atari Bigby’s poor 2008 season. What a load of crap.





Some folks are actually worried about Bigby for 2009. They say he had a bad 2008 season. That makes me laugh.

Last season Atari was playing hurt, and when he wasn’t playing hurt he wasn’t playing at all because he was hurt.

He was injured in preseason and played hurt from that point on, when he did play, so does it really shock people that he wasn’t the 2007 Atari?

Oh, and that poor 2008 season, he only played 7 games. Yeah, he didn’t even play half a season due to his injury, and he played those 7 hurt. And we’re going to rag on him and worry about this?

I think I’m one of the few people concerned about our safety position. Bigby will have that Strong Safety spot locked up. Only injury will stop that.

At Free Safety, Collins will have it if he’s still on the team and smart enough to find Lambeau Field. If not, Rouse will be competing hard, and he has the talent to be a starting safety and the fact that he’s a backup makes me happy.

Maybe he can even start at strong safety since Atari Bigby sucks now. Jeez…

As short as it should have been. The headline is brilliant though. You should make a Chris Cocker Parody video for youtube now.

Wait.. Dale is trying to have his cake and eat it too.

Bigby is banged up and tries to play through it and he is patted on the back and told everything is okay. Grant is banged up and tries to play through it and it blasted non stop... yet he played in every game.

I love how you select "your" players and then skew the lines of support for them. lol.

I don't want Bigby patted on the back. I just don't want to see him bashed cuz of "bad play" when it was injuries.

Grant is different. Grant was banged up because he HELD OUT and wasn't in FOOTBALL SHAPE when he got here, and GOT HURT BECAUSE OF THAT.

I love how you missed the point. lol.

Grant and Bigby are on much the same parallel in their careers, both played well in about a half a season of time, both followed it up with sub par injury riddled play.

Didn't Grant attend all the OTA's and Minicamps last year? Didn't Grant sit through offseason meetings and hit all the workouts last season.. but when camp came he used the only thing he could in his situation for leverage.. not attend the first couple days of training camp. Want to hold that against someone, start with Thompson not resolving it sooner. But to Ted's credit, he didn't let it become an issue this year with Williams.

It really matters not.. but "your" player vs "your" scorned is fun to watch..

BTW... I am the one that misses the point.. Mr. Head of the Grant sucks bandwagon. ;)

Good to know Ryan's injury is why he decides to run into own guys. I didn't know his injury effected his brain as well.

A bad season is a bad season, whether it's due to injury or some other reason. I think Bigby will bounce back just fine if he's healthy this year. So will James Jones and Ryan Grant.

Tom Brady had a terrible 2008.
