His play hasn't been good enough, and he can't seem to stay healthy, but I'm a little worried about Mo Claibourne's mental state right now after he apparently packed his bags and walked out of Valley Ranch after hearing he'd been benched yesterday.

Unless there is an abrupt turn around in Mo, then I think this is the beginning of the end for him in Dallas. He seemingly gave it everything he had to get better, but he doesn't seem to be able to cope mentally with his failings on the field. He has all the physical tools to be a success, but his confidence is clearly shot. Maybe he over thinks things on the field, or tries too hard, but it seems like he's had enough of the fan/media ridicule.

Facing the Saints was going to hard enough as it was. Claibourne, although benched would have seen the field quite a bit anyway with the Saints 3 and 4 receiver sets. Now it might be Carr and Scandrick on the outside, and then Patmon and Moore on the inside.....and that's all we have.
