Re: San Francisco 49ers Waive Linebacker Thaddeus Gibson
I was sarcastically stating that Colbert dodged a bullet because others earlier were saying that Gibson being cut by the 49ers proved that he couldn't play. Therefore, it would have been a bullet to pick up a player that has already shown that he can't make it. Pretty simple stuff here.
However, I do agree that the true bullet was him being released by the Steelers to begin with. There were other options to get McClendon onto the roster and the team could have used this past year's 5th round pick on another position instead of drafting Chris Carter.
