    It means he didn't get hurt, which is good. His play was bad though.

    I put that on bad coaching and technique more than anything. He really only had Roos as a good mentor. He Oline coach was garbge and big country was a shell of himself.

    I'm not a fan of picking offensive lineman in the first round and certainly wasn't a fan of the pick by any stretch. With that being said I was able to stomach it a little bit better because we had signed one of the best guards in football right out of the gates during FA. I was drinking the Munch kool aid by the gallon after hearing him pound his chest that "major changing" was coming after the 2012 season and thought "sh*t we're finally getting our o-line back to the old titan days." Looked great on paper thats for sure. Chance gets a pass from me because hes a rookie and it was expected. He still has alot of potential and got better as the season went on. But not Levitre,absolutely no excuse. Not for a guy making just shy of $8 mil a year. I don't care how bad the coaching was, a guy with his reputation if anything should of fell back on his fundamentals. I felt like we were playing 3 rookies last year.

    It means we have a lot invested in him, he has potential, was not injured all season, and there was no backup that would have been an improvement.

    None of those things signify a great player.


    Levitre was a disappointment as well. We just gave up cash for him, though. Not a valuable, tradable asset like a top 10 pick.

    Can't really think like that though. Had we got Quinn, maybe we would've been in better shape and didn't have a chance at Star.

    I think I got like 3 or 4 texts from friends that read "LOL" the second we selected Chance on draft day.

    The jury is still out on him. Nowhere close to a boom or bust at this point in time.

    I believe Chance will have a much improved 2nd year at the helm of better coaching.

    It was a freak injury, I really doubt the he was a broken leg waiting to happen.

    Ok. Thank you for clarifying that. We will find out next season who the better NFL player is if Cooper heals up right.
