PFT take on Albert and his twitter account

Branden Albert bids farewell to Twitter

Posted by Mike Florio on March 7, 2013, 8:58 AM EST

It came with much less fanfare than Arian Foster’s recent exit from the 140-character social media platform. But in the end the result was the same.

Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert has abandoned Twitter.

The pulling of the plug came in the hours after Albert expressed defiance regarding the possibility of moving to right tackle, following the unexpected release of starter Eric Winston.

Starting with “nope” regarding the possibility of moving to “you damn right” regarding his reluctance to be anything other than a left tackle, Albert drew a clear, deep line in the sand.

Thus, as of this posting, and as several of you have pointed out, Albert’s page is completely gone.

Chances are that Albert’s agent contacted the player with something along the lines of “what in the hell are you doing?” before explaining that Albert was setting the stage for either looking weak by later going along with whatever the coaching staff tells him to do or engaging in conduct detrimental to the team by refusing to follow orders.

There’s also a chance that, if Albert doesn’t sign his one-year franchise tender, the Chiefs will eventually rescind it. Coach Andy Reid did that twice in Philly, with defensive tackle Corey Simon in 2005 and linebacker Jeremiah Trotter three years before that. If the tag is removed at any time after the draft, Albert will have a hard time getting paid a lot of money to play any position on the football field in 2013.

So, basically, the social-media monster known meekly as Twitter has claimed another victim.

Like the rest of us, Albert knew the risks. And yet all too many of us eventually give in to the impulses that result in 140 or fewer characters we’ll never be able to fully live down

I don't have PFF, but I would be willing to bet that Albert was the 14th LT because he saw limited snaps compared to others due to his injury. Also, he is a better pass-blocker than run-blocker which will help in Andy Reid's offense. Also, Matt Cassel sucks BALLSACK. Matt Cassel routinely takes 45 sacks a year and Albert gave up what, one sack and one pressure this year?

You'd lose that bet. PFF's raw season-long ranking has him as the 17th best overall LT. If you adjust the overall score to a per game basis, Albert moves up to 14th.

I agree with the pass blocking point. FWIW, PFF has him as the 5th best pass blocking LT (9th best if you don't use the per game adjustment).

Has anything good ever come of a sports figure using the forum?

Someone will eventually conduct a study showing how much average money a player loses by using Facebook and Twitter over the course of his career.

I still can't believe how many idiots think this team needs another LT.

They need a LT with a long term deal.

PFF rated Branden Albert as the 14th best LT overall last season, but let's give him the benefit of the doubt and call him 10th.

But regardless of that, if you replace a Top 10 guy on the left with a Top 5 guy and then replace a lesser player on the right side with that Top 10 LT, you've certainly improved the team. Whether you've missed out on a way to make an even bigger improvement by doing something else is the question to ask.
He's a top 10 pass blocker at his position.

You don't replace those guys with 1.1 in the prime of their careers.

Period.
