Seems like you are overreacting.
Hatcher money may not be a prime concern but we need new blood. Young athletic and hungry.
Deadwood includes lower and medium paid guys, too, who take up room and inhibit new blood. I am not saying dump him but we do need better than Hatchers and Ratliffs to lift us. Ware and Lee need hep.
And before the screeches about "Who you gonna replace them with?" consider this: have a little creativity. Look hard in FA, the draft and be bold enough to say "We gave it a good try and ended up 8-8. It is time we moved on."
If not for this coming season, then for next. Let us be better and younger and tougher. And have training camp in New Guinea, not Northern California.
