    Considering he's been in this league so long, it was astonishing to see how hopeless he was the last two weeks.

    I know this won't be a popular opinion, but I feel for Marshall. The guy was a consummate pro who gave his best. The problem is that he was merely average to begin with and seems to have worsened with age. Good move for the team.

    You can live with a guy if he gives up short stuff, but when he gets burned deep for big scores, you have to move in another direction. The new guy may not be much better, but he can hardly do much worse.

    So we just switched D1cks? Sorta reminds me of that election slogan from a few decades ago: Don't change D1cks in the middle of a screw, re-elect Nixon in '72.

    ^^^ The only election slogan I can remember from that campaign was:
    "He kept us out of Northern Ireland." Tricky Dick...

    All I know is there is no way to go but UP from the way Richard Marshall was playing.

    From what I've read, he seemed like he was coming into his own in his rookie season. He had some long punt returns and got his first career pick against Romo towards the end of the season. Then he tore his ACL and LCL in the preseason the following year and missed the season. He was a final roster cut this year. That's about all there is to know.

    Nothing I've read suggests that Crawford's a significant upgrade. Or maybe even an upgrade at all.

    Sometimes though, heads gotta roll just to make a point
    (Marshall's play was poor, but trying to play safety & corner was not likely to turn out well)

    Now we just hope Crawford was unemployed for no good reason. :whistling:

    Well, the Chargers didn't just sign him blindly, he did tryout for the team.

    Now that Marshall is gone the Bolts should win about 48 games in a row. This team is pooping in tall cotton now!!!!!!

    Yes, and we also tried out Shayne Skov. Who I loved at ILB. Would of loved him on the PS.

    But signing Kendall James to the PS today is a move I really like. Kid has some potential.

    Drafted by Minnesota in the 6th round, picked up off waivers by Houston and then we signed him to our PS.
