    Talking about Jay Ratliff hasnt been around the team for over a month. Thats disappointing. Said 8 players on IR made it to the Redskins game but Ratliff didnt go. Ill say it right now, Ratliff wont be on the team in 2013.

    that is surprising. But I agree he really needs to go now. You are looking at the proverbial bad seed growing.

    What other players on IR didn't make it and why? Maybe Ratliff has doctors orders to rest after his surgery.

    Ratliff will be on the team in 2013, we need some DL players and we don't save much by cutting him. He is respected in the locker room and by JG.

    Tend to agree. We have so many needs on the OL and DL/LB that every need cannot be addressed in one or two off seasons.

    They said the other players on IR made the trip. Said they wanted to be there and Garrett wanted them there. But Ratliff chose not to go

    Unless he happily accepts a move to DE he needs to go.

    He would be a 6million hit against the cap if he is cut. That will be strong motivation for him being on the team.

    Cutting him would still put $6 mil dead money on the cap. So makes no sense to cut him, and still pay for his salary. It's not like we have great options now with Brent out of football.

    Also talked about Austin. Said people they talk to in in the organization dont paint a pretty picture of Austin. Think he might be gone too.

    After june 1 he's 3 mil in 2013 and 3 in 2014. I think that'll be the route

    He can always be designated as a June 2 cut ahead of time.

    You can't cut Austin. His contract is far too cap friendly for another team to simply cut.

    Dallas has already taken the brunt of the hit for that contract and still has 5M in dead money because of it.

    Guaranteed another team would be more than willing to take that contract on.

    From how they sound it just sounds like from people theyve talked to inside the team, its probably done

    Gosh, if Miles could stay healthy he is always a great playmaker.

    I don't know about Rat though. He was one of my favorites. He seriously has turned bad... Sad to say he may be gone..

    Now they're talking about Garrett and are talking bout the report this morning. Name they are talking bout is strictly Norv. Saying if they bring somebody in they think it has to be somebody with familiarity with Jerry and Jason.

    Saying something needs to be done because Jason seems arrogant in situations. Like that drive before the half.

    What exactly did they say about Austin? Were they referring to his work habits? Toughness?
