Leslie Frazier benched Cedric Griffin after the cornerback gave up a touchdown in the first quarter. Griffin tried to stay philosophical.

I hope he keeps moving right out the door. His career is over.

Didn't even realize Griffin wasn't playing. They are all so bad they all look the same. There isn't one player in the defensive secondary that would be a starter on anther team (and that includes college too).

What other team is going to give him a shot? If he can't play for this pathetic bunch, his NFL career is over. Maybe he can catch on with some semipro team somewhere.

It's a shame. He had developed into a solid corner before the injury. What about moving him up to safety? Didn't he play some safety in college? Worth a try. He can't be any worse than what we have right now.

I like RealVikes thought about putting him at safety being the safeties they have are horrible. The vikes are expecting alot out of a guy that had two severe knee injuries the last two years. Just too bad, i like the guy but he's nowhere near playing for what he's getting paid.

If you want to sum up this season, I feel the best way to do it is by pointing out that Benny Sapp is the best player in our secondary. Ouch.

Bench Fraiser, who's on the other end of that headset anyway, Justin Beaver...or however you spell it.

How is it that a player can be cut by the DOLPHINS and look like an all-star in this bunch?

If I'm Khalil, Claiborne, Reiff, or any other college player of "immediate impact" status, I'm staying in school just so I don't get drafted by this bunch of stumbling, bumbling idiots! Griffin stinks, but at least he has a reason. Whats Loadholts excuse? How could he not at least nick Avril on his rush? Talk about fundamentals Leslie! How about trying to coach instead of folding your arms and looking thoughtful on the sideline all game!
