But you have a sick obsession with acls, we were just talking about why the Eagles don't have a change to their roster.

It's a fear, not obsession.... I guess "phobia" is the word.

Just watching this Irish-Rutgers game and seeing the big man 6-6 Nicklaus catch a pass like Gronkowski, and seeing the smaller safety come in and try to dive into his leg/knee.... I actually cringe, look away, and hope that the guy doesn't connect and break the leg or rip the ACL like we saw to Gronk, Cobb, Keller, Shipley, etc....

I think ACL and knee injuries are J-Mike fetish.

Dude, I do HATE them. I hate the ACL. It needs to be re-designed.
I can handle seeing the non-contact ones like the one that happened to Jamaal Charles in 2011. But the ones where someone hits the knee, I seriously am getting queezy..... I feel like at this pace, within 5 years I will turn to only MLB, PGA Tour, and the ATP Tour.

That's why I need to see the NFL do something to try and stop the hits like those that took out Gronk & Cobb & Cushing and others.
I don't even want to see Crabtree or V Davis or Boldin hit like those...

I think it was his second season. The 49ers went to Pittsburgh in 2007.

The Niners must have had a different strength & conditioning coach/trainer back then eh? :)

Seriously, those low hits on defenseless receivers cause more damage to the hits on their upper bodies when they are defenseless receivers.

But there haven't been class action lawsuits yet from the guys getting their knees & legs blown up..... I might have to be the one to bring it.

The Polamalu hit on Davis was in 2007. It resembled the Gronk hit. Would have made JMike's hit list. Sprained MCL. Missed a few games. Polamalu called VD a couple days later and apologized. The players moved on. That's football.

It couldn't have been as bad as the Gronk hit, or Cobb hit, or Keller hit, or Shipley hit, or Mughelli hit, because those guy's seasons ended, or in Cobb's case, he missed about 3 months.

VD only missed a few games?
There you go again, superior Niners trainers.

I hear the Niners might actually be missing one of their top CBs in Carl Rogers this week.
Oh boy. How will their defense hold up knowing they still have all 4 of their LBs, Justin Smith, Eric Reid, but they're missing Rogers. Can they overcome the loss of him.

Nice to have a healthy Front 7: OLBs Ahmad Brooks & Aldon Smith had a combined 3.5 sacks & almost a dozen hurries.

Clay Matthews and Mike Neal were able to WATCH from the sideline.

***** Packers.

Tonight was bad.
Bottle THAT feeling.....and live it for the next 3 years, and you will feel like me.
I mean there are so many games we lose at least 2 quality guys.
Season-enders. Career-enders. It sucks.
And tonight's were both flukes, that no trainer can do anything about.

Giants having the most injuries isn't surprising. We had a JV OL out there for the majority of the season.

Those are hard, very hard to watch. This one was worse because the ************* refs ****** the big call up.
Everyone in America, even the Chinese, saw who got the ball. EXCEPT the blind 65-year old zebra nearest to the play.
Justice occurred on the next play when Skittles and Wilson coughed it back.
But didn't help Bowman's broken ACL. I hate those. Why can't we re-design the way the knee can bend?

Honestly BBD, did it make a difference or not?

Of course it made a difference. But it's no excuse. Every team has injuries.

Is that not contradictory?

If it did make a difference, it was a valid reason for many struggles.
Define "excuse" and define "reason".

Teams that were healthier did better on average, as always.
Teams that were demolished with injuries did worse, as always.

I think those are legitimate, obvious reasons. Which some might call excuses.

Forget the word, they are reasons. Some injuries cannot be overcome. Obviously.

It's not an excuse because every team deals with injuries, and depth is part of the game. Teams with better depth or who avoid key injuries deserve to advance.

No one wants to hear the injury excuse. If your team's OL was decimated then have better depth. If your qb goes down have a better backup plan. If your pass rusher goes down you should've had a better stable behind him.

Lack of depth is not an excuse for poor performance.
