My only concern about the incident is the timing. You have to expect attrition, but the timing -- just like the timing of Shakim Phillips leaving -- is curious. What is going on around the program that guys are leaving inexplicably like this so close to the season? I want to make sure Spaz and his staff have a good feel for the team moods and behavior. The behavior balance around any team is always tenuous. Off the field stuff can undermine on the field success and conversely a poor season can spill over into off the field behavior. Spaz needs to make sure he has things under control.
I really don't trust Spaz, but there are many, many things that have me thinking BC will surprise people. At this point, losing one middling DB won't change that. As long as one of the young guys steps up we will be fine.
