I can say this is one of the few times I can actually agree with Jerry Sullivan in saying Dareus has overstayed his welcome.   For me, yes he is a former 1st rounder, a former probowler (by default) but he is not reliable and is spotty in both his play on the field and his acts off the field.  Wanted a fan opinion poll as to should he stay or should he go?

He had 7.5 sacks and 71 tackles last year. If thats spotty in his play for a DT, we should be so lucky.

If the Bills cut him, then it is not about winning anymore. He's a great player who has made some stupid mistakes in the last few weeks. Have a heart, help the guy, keep your pro bowlers

Would you pick up Aldon Smith? If the niners cut him would you pick him up?

Is Jerry Sullivan still relevant?  Nope! TBN should cut this outdated grouchy crusty curmudgeon!

Just remember we felt the same way about Marshawn Lynch...until he won a Super Bowl.

So the fact that his acts make the entire front office look out of control of their player doesn't matter?  Let him get arrested /suspended for the beginning of the season for 2nd or 3rd offenses but let him play when he comes back?  I can't be the only one who is getting fed up with this guy.

You also have to use your head. These infractions are a cry for help. I also happen to think Marrone knows a hell of a lot more about the situation than you do. If he is saying Dareus needs help, I trust him.

If this is the case there is no front office in the league in control.

There's no way you're actually serious, right?

Aldon Smith....

Hmmm, the 49ers seem to be sticking with him and he's actually been suspended. Dareus hasn't been suspended. But yes lets get the pitch forks and torches out.

Okay. Cut him if you must. But make it a small one, maybe just a nick on the back of his forearm.

no,


Perhaps Kujo could remind Dareus of what a good old fashion bama ass whipping feels like though...

No way at this point do you cut him.  BUT, you do start to look around to protect your interests (i.e. sign another DT, maybe explore trade options etc) AND you invest in helping keep him on the straight and narrow, similar to what Cowboys did with Dez Bryant, i.e. HIRE A BABYSITTER !

Hah. No. Jerry Sullivan should not be anywhere near the roster of an NFL team. He hasn't even been suspended by the league yet.

I think you can see by the poll you put up that your opinion is in the minority. I'm not happy about this off field stuff, but I certainly wouldn't cut him, nor trade him. As a post above mentioned, help him.

How does the FO look out of control? What a ridiculous statement.

Dumbest thing Ive read all offseason. And that is saying something.

Stop over-reacting. Very few people outside of Buffalo/Bills fans even realize this happened, and we're in a period where the media is desperate for any NFL news.

Dareus's transgressions barely made it onto ESPN's NFL Live (they actually spent more time saying Manuel will have a breakout season). And it wasnt even mentioned on Around the Horn or PTI.

Only Bills fans, with our "Run Them Out of Town" attitude, would even THINK of cutting such a player over such trivial events.

Get a grip, Bills fans. Find some perspective.

Chris Brown made the same argument but I cant disagree more with it.

How is drag racing a cry for help? and if it was a cry for help by Dareus what was it for Hughes who he was racing? was he also crying for help?

people saying his actions are a cry for help are just making excuses for him acting like an idiot

Dareus should prove that he is serious about being professional & should hire a Life Coach to keep him pointed in the right direction & to steer clear of potential problems.
