Sick and Tired of Jared Gaither

I am sick and tired of the injury rollercoaster that we get with Jared Gaither. He is a huge impact in the game IF he is able to wants to play, BUT the team didn’t get a backup plan for him this offseason and he doesn’t want to pay more often than not. Instead, when Gaither has to “rest” his “injuries”, we start an undrafted rookie free agent at LEFT TACKLE. That is our next best option off of the bench. An undrafted guy!

Don’t they remember last season when Marcus McNeill went down with an injury? When McNeill was lost for the season, there was NOBODY on the roster that could pick up the slack. It wasn’t until we signed Gaither off of the street till we had someone that could play the position. Now Gaither has been out and we are left with NOBODY again.

Gaither has been a roller coaster of health and the offensive line can’t get any consistency. Even when Gaither is able to play, he wears down in the final quarter. The quarter where the game seems to be decided and we fail every single time. With Gaither missing practice every day, he doesn’t get the conditioning work that he needs to last the whole game.

Gaither was a stud last season. He played so well, he helped save Norv Turner’s job. Gaither’s inconsistency this season could cost Norv and AJ Smith both of their jobs.

Maybe he has another miracle run that he can put together at the end of this season. Probably not. He got his big payday and seems content sitting on the sideline.

Sick and tired of it! Someone go grab him some twinkies before they run out!
