This isn't about Incognito per se, or whether he deserves to be reinstated or cut or sat.... it's just a prop to the front office for recognizing the development of this team.
I'm a Spur fan, and back in 1995 the infamous Dennis Rodman was leading the league @ 17rebounds/gm when he injured himself in a motorcycle accident (a prohibited activity, but he was never one to let rules bother him). For the first time all season, the Spurs are distraction free and rip off about 15 straight wins heading into playoffs. I prayed they would keep him on bench when he recovered, as JR Reid and Terry Cummings were stepping up big time and the team was jelling. But no, they handed the job back to him and he promptly got a suspension for fighting and during playoffs the punk refused to even get in the huddle with his team. Spurs were bounced by Houston in the semis and I put that totally on the coaches and organization.
What this OL has been able to do is nothing short of amazing- a sub-par line loses two starters and other injuries, and pulls itself together mid-season to right a sinking ship and rally around a young QB who is still learning the ropes and taking a beating. OL is ALL about chemistry, and 'phins seem to have caught lightning in a bottle for probably a number of reasons. These guys DESERVE to finish out this season as a unit, and without worrying about other distractions.
Looks like the Dolphins are about to do the right, smart thing. I think they've done that all season long and I applaud and thank them!
