    The difference of course is that Howard should actually improve as opposed to Hunter.
    Even if / when he does struggle eventually ... it's a lot better than struggling from the start like you-know-who.

    Just thought it was funny that we got this RT thing solved in a big way, and the media doesn't mention it. lol.

    If I was Woody J, I would call Tanny on the carpet and demand to know how he could guarantee $2.5M this season for Hunter. What criteria was used to make that decision?

    Who knows, perhaps he's done that in private already but this was a terrible decision as Hunter is not an NFL caliber T.

    No, I'm talking about ESPN and the like. I think only Cowherd (whom I'm a fan of) got anywhere near it and he still didn't mention it.

    Still, it's been encouraging.
    Charles Johnson is a pretty good pass rusher.... Wayne Hunter got owned again last night by a backup.
