Morrison has not been active much, if at all, this season. Given our poor linebacking play and Morrison's somewhat large contract, I was wondering why the Bills don't activate him for games?

IDK but Dwan Edwards is having a very good (run stuffing and sacks) season I read last week somewhere he is the #1 DT in the NFL DOH! :doh:
Makes you wonder don't it.

they will tell you it is because he is a backup who doesn't play special teams, while bradham and moats do.  I will tell you that his strength is as a run stuffer and we could use him

He can't be worse than Moats. We need a linebacker who can stuff the run.

I'd ask T.Jax, since he's in the same boat.

Except a #4-5 lb expects to get reps if he suits up. Jax is on the bench either way.

How about using T-Jack in a wildcat formation?

T Jack needs company on the inactive list , if they were to activate Morrison if for nothing else to motivate a player by making them sit a week or 2 then these guys wouldn't have any one to talk to while they sit & do nothing !!

I recently composed a little song about the Kirk Morrison situation.

It's written for acoustic guitar and voice (the refrain would be in two or three-part harmony) and it's kind of a folk ballad in the the style of the band "America."

I call it "The Lonely Linebacker."

Would anyone like to hear it?

it must suck for him. going from a never missed a play guy to sitting on the outside of a Bills team.
I for one liked the guy. He looked slowish but strong and very ball aware in camp

I will but I'm doing some revisions on it.

I realized after I'd composed it that it's almost a note for note copy of America's equine epic, "Wildfire."

As such I have to change a few things so I don't run afoul of the intellectual property nazis.

It starts,

"He came down from Duval County… where he played for just a year… "

It's really beautiful.

I'm sure it is a lovely song, but for the record, America did not sing Wildfire, it was by Michael Murphey.

Oh.




Maybe I should re-write it to the melody of "Horse with no Name."

I love Horse with no name.

For those of you that don't know or never heard of it you should go look it up on your mpods or pandingo or facetwitter or whatever you call it.

In case no one knew, its a song about a 7 or 9 day acid trip. Love it.

Dumb move by the coaching staff.  Moats should be the one inactive every week.

As horrid as our LB play has been, why Morrison hasn't been on the field is totally mind boggling.
