    Zeirlein (sp?) on 610 am is reporting Glenn Earl was sucker punched before the last season so that it knocked him out, required plastic surgery and was the primary reason Earl was out in the 1st half of the season. He acknowledged there was a shoulder issue also, but supposedly that was not the main reason. He reported Earl was pretty worked up about folks on the radio etc. saying he had lost his job and was injury prone. FWIW.

    That's interesting. Sucker punched by a teammate?

    That's what they said. Said they were still working on a name, which they would not divulge if they did find out.

    I'm glad they were able to keep it in house if it was an altercation between players. No sense blowing it out of proportion through the media.

    call me crazy but I think he'll be a good SS ... him and CC Brown ... it's nice to have someone back there that isn't afraid* to lay the wood

    * Coleman and Buchanon

    I've always like Earl, but some of the more knowledgeable posters have picked up on some flaws in his game. I tend to agree with you though that Earl and Brown could develop into nice players. I atleast think they can become solid depth for us.

    may have been more problems behind the scenes last year than we even imagined.

    Heres hoping Kubiak can straighten this all out and get our guys focused on winning.

    yea he's not the fastest guy out there in coverage for sure but a SS doesn't need to be a burner ... it certainly helps though ..

    i think earl is the future of SS for us with CC brown backing him up. browns cover skills are poor and i dont think he can transition to FS with a SS/run defense mentality. also makes you think if they actually had to throw in CC into the lineup due to this.

    i think it was good to keep discipline in-house, but some information should have been given out. especially now, i am interested in who it was and his motive for a "sucker punch"

    I thought for a minute it might be Matt Stevens back and looking for a job, but he was a FS right? :)

    I think Glen Earl can become a solid player, Ive heard a few places that he was the #2 ranked safety after Sean Taylor until he hurt his knee, and thats why he dropped down. Maybe with a new coach/scheme noth him and CC will become solid Safetys

    Coleman was worse on average at hitting people than P-Buc was last year--although he did lay a good lick on that tree (OK cheap shot).

    C'mon Grid, Marcus would actually have to care about something first in order for him to conjure up enough emotion to hit someone... I swear that guy stays in a permanent state of bakeness...

    Walker stands to lose the most from Earl's emergence IMO. I'm sticking with him ... unless it's someone across the line from him like Marcellus Rivers.

    Yah it was a sucker punch though.... heck that might make Pbuc a more likely candidate. The only way he could ever get a good hit on someone is if he snuck up on them and hit them while they werent looking.
