    @PFF: According to @davebirkett Lions to release Stephan Peterman today. Gave up joint most combined sacks, hits and hurries of any guard in 2012

    He and Doug Free would make the perfect pair.

    What are the chances Jerruh brings him back stating the Cowboys regretted ever letting him go.

    Dallas drafted Peterman. Another in a long line of mishandling of the offensive line

    Jerry's kind of lineman, can't block. Perfect fit.

    Peterman might or might not be an example of why the Cowboys have held on to Arkin.

    I don't think Peterman's case is anything like Arkin's. Arkin is (was?) a small-school developmental project who can't get on the field even with multiple injuries. Peterman was a top SEC player with questionable NFL athletic talent who was playing, but then sustained a terrible leg injury and the team gave up on him, probably because they weren't sure he'd ever be the same.

    And besides, that was Parcells making that move. This is Jerry/Garrett.

    Unfortunately, Arkin is probably more like James Marten. Simply can't play.

    The Lions cut Peterman because they have his replacement on the roster . Bill Nagy.

    Yes. I did that on purpose. :)

    Rue, rue, rue...

    I didn't understand that move. All they had to do was wait until the roster cut date and then put him on IR. Did they really need ALL 90 roster spots?

    yeah that kind of makes me think he might have another injury or something and they really feel he is done

    play for the Lions: he's god AWFUL. CAn't run, can't block, can't stop himself from taking penalties. One of the worst guards in the league. (I live in Michigan so I'm subjected to LIons games.....I won't let my kids watch them as it is truly a form of child abuse)

    I really can't understand our failures with linemen, other than only drafting one in the first round. Whether they are from a big school or a small school, we can't seem to find any who can play well on this level ... or at least sustain it, in Free's case.

    Some of it may be whoever we have in charge of evaluating them, but even that has changed some over the years, from Lacewell to Ireland to Ciskowski, through six head coaches and several OL coaches.
