It's a simple question, and I've been struggling with it since I first heard about Broyles' knee injury early in today's game. I manage a department of people and have seen first hand the detriment a bad apple can have on a group of hard working people. I often find myself letting go of employees for attitude problems, far more often then attendance or production issues.
I'll be honest, I don't like or excuse Young Sr's recent or past actions for one second, but I can't and won't root against him while he's a member of this team. I see this as a win/win. With little risk Titus can be given one last shot to prove himself. The team can avoid most of the questions about letting him return too early because they find themselves in a position where they actually may need him. Granted we are out of the playoff hunt, so losing for a better draft pick is starting to make sense, but if you saw the look on Staffords', Suhs', and all of the teams' faces as the game ended today I doubt you see this team as one that would ever tank anything. This team didn't tank the last 4 games a couple years back and they're not about to now. Even if Mayhew and company plan to trade the Boise State wideout after the season, a few productive games beforehand could only help the possibility of yet another epic Mayhewing. Maybe Dallas could use another receiver? If there is even a chance we keep him, wouldn't we need to play him again to figure that out, and judge how he responds? So if Broyles can't suit up next week does Titus?
