Stafford re-injures shoulder, season over?
 
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...e=HP_headlines

Guys career could be done before we know it.

This makes me sad. It seems like the guy works hard, comes back, throws for 4 TDs, and then goes back out again immediately. The Lions are poised for a breakthrough and really need their QB. I hope they do IR him and let him rehab for next season. In the meantime, get some OL help eh?

NY+Giants=NYG 11-09-2010 08:00 AM

The guy is going to have the injury prone label put on him now. It's sad because I like him as a QB for the Lions. I think he has good potential. However, the guy has to stay healthy. It's like every time he gets hit and falls on his arm or shoulder, something goes wrong.

Nalej 11-09-2010 08:02 AM

It's true. I wasn't high on him coming out but when he's on the field, he's proven me wrong.
I never saw injuries being an issue and it's sad that it is because this team seems poised to turn that corner.
How does Pettigrew over Oher feel now? Must have stung when it happened and must now sting that much more

TitanHope 11-09-2010 08:13 AM

I've never seen the Lions play, but I definitely know for a fact that Jeff Backus sucks. Definitely.

In fact, I'm pretty sure it was Backus himself who injured Stafford. Bastard just blindsided him and then high fived a Jets player.

It had nothing to do with his o-line, at least this time it didn't.

CC.SD 11-09-2010 09:10 AM

still better than joey harrington.

vikes_28 11-09-2010 09:21 AM

I said he was injury prone last year.

Notredameleo 11-09-2010 09:32 AM

Could our line be better? yes

Is our line bad? no

The first game of the season, Backus got owned on the play he got hurt, but him and the rest of our o-line has been playing very well, most importantly in pass protection. This injury has nothing to do with our o-line, he was running towards the sideline. And he is very brittle, which sucks, because I heard nothing about him being injury prone while coming out. So, please, before you start, dont say "oher would be great," or you're o line sucks, because as of the last 7 weeks, it most certainly does not.

Well this is unfortunate, as I put my fantasy squad in his hands when I traded away Eli.

Anyways, Stafford has been lights out when he's been on the field. Its too bad he can't stay on it. And for those blaming the offensive line, while the first time was definitely their fault, this one wasn't. He was scrambling for gods sake, got caught from behind and went down awkwardly. Just bad luck.

Damnit, now they'll probably win the patrick peterson sweepstakes.

This injury had nothing to do with the Oline. There was coverage, Stafford didn't need to run but he did, caught from behind and fell on his shoulder.
Backus is responsible for the first injury but that is basically his only bad play he has made this year and Backus was pretty good last year. Lions are good in pass protection this year(way better than previous years) and Backus is shutting down the best DEs. Oher wouldn't do **** for this team. Backus will be our LT next year and I have no problem with that unless LT is far and away BPA over a defensive back 7 player.

Staffords shoulder injury last year had nothing to do with the Oline either. Olines can't block for 10 seconds. It was a hail mary play and Stafford was running around waiting to make a play. The first injury, the knee injury there was pass protection issues but that was a combo block with Gosder Cherilus(who is playing much better this year in pass pro) and Stephen Peterman(who I would like to see replaced but mainly for running game purposes and dumb penalties).

QBs are going to get hit. Its just too bad Stafford keeps having these freak injuries falling on his shoulder. I don't think he was fully healed coming back and now we are paying the price. Hill should be back soon and thats the only good thing about this that Hill is a capable backup and was extended for next year just in case.

No body cares what you think.

Ignoring the fact that Backus is a very good tackle, then yes he sucks.

LonghornsLegend 11-09-2010 10:11 AM

See I'm not ready to throw the injury prone label out there even though it may be justified. The first hit was Peppers getting a kill shot and lots of QB's would have gotten hurt there, this one was a process of him being rushed back and that shoulder not being healed. You have got to be careful, this is your franchise guy, you know he can play, and constant seperations to the throwing shoulder aren't going to help.


Similiar to Sam Bradford at OU, rushed back, hit again on the same shoulder and he was injured again very easily, he does have to get stronger though because you have to be able to take tough hits to be the franchise guy.

Which is why it was completely idiotic to give Bradford the "injury prone" label coming out.

Listening to people on this board, you'd think Bradford was Brodie Croyle's clone. Except Croyle was a better prospect because he played in a pro style offense at Bama.

Splat 11-09-2010 10:41 AM

OOO Brodie Croyle what could have been, I still think the kid has talent but a strong wind puts him on IR.

Nalej 11-09-2010 11:57 AM

You can't ignore the fact that the first time he was injured is having lingering effects...
and the first time he was injured was his OLine's fault.
If it wasn't for that first injury, maybe he doesn't get injured on this past play.
Maybe he hops right back up to the huddle like it was nothing.

It's a bunch of coulda shoulda woulda's...I know. I'm not a Lion's fan... just a fan of what your organization is doing though
So if you guys don't think you need an upgrade at OL or that Pettigrew was indeed the right choice... then fine.
I'm just an outsider looking in

P-L 11-09-2010 12:13 PM

Yeah, this one wasn't on the offensive line. They shouldn't have rushed him back so quick. It sucks, but oh well. Give him the rest of the year off to get back to 100% and with some offseason improvements, we'll be competing for a playoff spot next year.

boknows34 11-09-2010 12:30 PM

The Lions made some very nice trades with lower rd draft picks for A.Smith, R.Sims, C.Williams, C.Houston and S.Hill. If they can keep adding talent like that for 5th-7th rd picks, sign an OLB and OL in FA and draft PP or Prince A they'll be a very dangerous team in 2011......provided Stafford MUST stay healthy. I really hope their luck begins to change next season and beyond.

T-RICH49 11-09-2010 12:38 PM

wonderful.picked up Stafford after Romo went down and now this?I am the kiss of death in FF

BeerBaron 11-09-2010 12:44 PM

I hope for the sake of the other teams in the NFCN, that Jeff Backus remains the Lions LT forever.



Ole!!

Too bad he's shut down everyone else this year. When are we having that cage match?

That's fine. As long as Peppers makes him his *****, I could care less about other teams.
