    Yeah but your backup players can do some things well. Thats why they are in the Pro's. He's a terrible all around player and if you can't pass block in this league then you shouldn't be on the field.

    Free has really just fallen apart.

    As I said in another thread, I think a lot of it has to do with lack of confidence. He signed that big deal and probably is falling apart from all the pressure at this point.

    It's a shame, because I thought that position would be secured for years to come.

    He was never very good to begin with. He only looked good in comparison to Colombo

    Can't admit you're wrong, so hey,...pretend he's mysteriously declined. Who could have seen it coming?

    No, I honestly dont think he was juicing.

    He never had great upper body strenght, even when he was playing good, it was his technique that he got by on. If he was juicing and then stopped, you would see a considerable drop in both strenght reaction time. SInce he never really was that strong, it leads me to belive that he was not juicing.

    He also never was visibly bigger in the arms or chest, if he was on something like HGH, one of the first tells is increased muscle mass very quickly.

    Of course you can never be 100% sure, there are several masking agents that can be used with HGH to minimize the visible affects. For his sake I hope Free never gets involved with any of this stuff, you can really mess your heart up if you dont know what you are doing.

    Well I will say, the excuse has been given that Callahan has made him less aggressive cause of the change in style, so it has hurt his play this year. Problem is, Free sucked last year too and all we are hearing is another excuse this year.

    Sooner or later we have to realize that he really does suck and move on, but I'm still curious to see if the 2nd half of the last game will carry over into the next game.
