    Thought this was an interesting statement from the JSOnline article:

    A source close to the situation said cornerbacks Al Harris and Charles Woodson had been lobbying the coaches for Bigby to replace Manuel, a player whom they apparently no longer trusted.

    I'm thinkin Al and Chuck want to win. Wether true or not, when your starting corners lobby for a change, that speaks volumes!

    I remember hearing a few times where Al and Charles stated there was a communication break down and it was in reference to plays that lacked Manuels presence.

    Baring a total meltdown, Atari Bigby looks like he's the frontrunner to start at Strong Safety.

    I hope everyone realizes that all this stuff about Bigby starting cannot really be true, because one week into training camp our very own Lare informed us that Manuel would be the starter this season.

    Anyway, what makes Manuel's communication problems so bad is that communication was supposed to be his strong suit when he came here. But even last year, I remember hearing some rumblings that Manuel was rubbing some of his teammates the wrong way and gaining a reputation as a know-it-all.

    nothing worse than a know-it-all that screws up more than you do.
