    There are rumors flying around twitter that he quit the team after a heated argument with Sherman and Philbin.

    Bet Sherman aired him out like he did Egnew on Hard Knocks and he wasn't too thrilled. Sherman must go.

    Glazer says Martin flipped out after an incident in the cafeteria, smashed his tray and stormed out and is now seeking some sort of psychiatric help.

    Jeeeesus.

    Martin went psycho in the cafeteria on Monday after his teammates pulled a prank on him. He apparently is getting treated for mental problems.

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

    Can this **** get any worse?

    Yeah, it can get worse. Tomorrow night when the Bengals stomp a mudhole in this team.

    Unreal.

    Offer every 2nd round pick we have from now until 2020 for TY Hilton.

    (Indy probably still wouldn't take them)

    This is very disturbing. Jonathan Martin is among the most intelligent and highest character players on the team. (He was recruited from Stanford, where he excelled in protecting Andrew Luck). Against some difficult circumstances, he has consistently "manned up", even when beaten, he has displayed total professionalism in every interview. For the smartest guy on the entire team to quit, they have pushed him too far.

You are so ****ing good you can play baby games? This isn't training camp this is your season swirling the god damn toilet bowl and your playing a prank?

    McKinnie and Clabo likely won't be back next year. Incognitio is a free agent, Pouncey might have legal problems, Jerry isn't very good and now Martin is apparently nuts. The entire offensive line in 2014 might be different.

    Probably has a lot to do with him losing the starting LT position. All the pressure.

    I think it's kind of a punk move to prank a struggling player. These guys are a little too old to be playing musical chairs in a cafeteria.

    That kind of stuff just seems totally juvenile. I don't know of any workplace I've ever been in where management would tolerate that kind of stuff when the department is performing waaaaay under expectations.

    Sure, football is different and all, but standards of professionalism, anyone?

    Which equals the team is filled with holes still. I feel bad for Martin if he is suffering from a real mental disorder. I guess it is possible he could get on some medication and return at some point maybe...but we are not even sure if he would work out as a good lineman either way. We have to get some good news about this team at some point don't we????

    Also, just throwing this out there, but I think we know goddamn well who was responsible for this 'prank' -- and this is exactly why that player is going to be testing free agency this offseason.

    I really don't believe for a second that it was 'any last man' who sat down at the table who got pranked.

    Wowowow, this team... Lol. Ireland sucks at drafting O linemen so badly that even the starters either end up in the Cuckoo's Nest or in-cahoots with drug kingpins, lmao.


    Honestly, you could see a little bit of this in Martin during Hard Knocks. He seemed like he was having trouble adjusting to the team. Remember they all called him Big Weirdo??

    A psychologically fragile lineman isn't long for the NFL

    Let me be clear about Martin: He had no issues with any coaches. He had a breakdown and is now seeking mental counseling, sources tell me.

    This is absurd. He's our only real option as a backup LT with Bryant McKinnie's bad knee, and he's better than Clabo at RT.

    This is a serious problem for the football team on the field, it's a serious problem for the football team off the field, and it really makes me wonder just what the **** is going on over there in Davie.

    Wow simply wow. Some of these young guys are under immense pressure. The oline has been under intense scrutiny and criticism.
    Some not be able to handle the pressure. I hope Martin gets his mind in order and can return.

    I don't know if anyone read about How the Seahawks go out of their way to keep their players mentally balanced. It is sad that a team who saw the effects of mental illness first hand with Marshall allowed this much discontent to percolate.

    Well, I hope the dude is OK and is able to get his problems under control. Mental illness isn't a joking matter. Even if the player is playing like ***. Give me a break people...

    Where the hell is Philbin in all of this? If a juvenile prank pushed Martin over the edge then why hasn't someone been suspended without pay for violating team rules???
