Minor note: former Ohio State player released. From the Chicago Tribune:
Defensive end Vernon Gholston, a reclamation project, was waived.
Obviously, he was a bust, going to the Jets 6th in the first round of the NFL draft merely a few years ago. Wonder if he got any free tats.
per Angelique Chengelis tweet (I assume, perhaps wrongly, that this is a general policy decision rather than a decision unique to this week's game).
Too bad, it seems like most people liked it. I don't know if this will fuel Brian's fear that we've "returned to the days when the fans were tolerated at best." But I assume that the decision is based on what's best for the team's pre-game preparation.
Don't get too much free material from scout, so enjoy:
Back by popular demand, or maybe entirely despite it, I return for my third year providing your weekly primer in what not to watch. Last year, no team pulled off the shutout, but 12 teams had 2 or fewer wins. Welcome to the list, Memphis. Elsewhere, New Mexico managed to go 1-11 and not finish last in their conference. The mighty MAC had no less than 4 teams with two wins or less. So without further ado, let's get into it.
This saddens me a great deal, I really enjoyed his writing. RIP Killer, we'll miss you!
