I trully believe we dodged a huge bullet with this kid. Red flags everywhere. Let the gates deal with that cancer in their locker room.
Is the phrase " just a kid" the biggest cop out on these boards?
Unless you are 12 or under you aren't excused for acting like this. This is just immature disrespectful behavior and it is on his parents as much as him..
I totally agree with you and as much of it I put on Dante(don't feed me the he's only a kid crap), just as much of it has to be placed on the parents.
We have to get 3 next year. Losing tank, werner, jenkins
Sometimes not getting what you want can turn out to be a good thing. FOWLer was a bad apple and even before today, people were ready to throw him overboard (me included).
Just imagine if he signed with us and he brought his self-centered attitude into our locker room. The NFL is full of examples of self-centered players who "took down" some really good teams. This is a blessing in disguise IMO.

Fowler deserves the blame on this one, but IMO the coaches dropped the ball on this one. There were signs out there that they ignored. Nothing is final until the ink is dry.They will learn from this and be stronger in the future,
I don't think the coaches dropped the ball for a couple reasons:
1. fowler was a nice addition to our 2 stud DEs, not the star of the group.
2. The fact that we recruiting fans were fooled doesn't mean the coaches were and many fans fully expected him to flip
3. NOBODY really knows where these guys are going including themselves
