  1. I don't recall that happening with any frequency. Any times in particular you can point to?

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    Ooooh, okay, well I feel like an ass because I totally agree with you and you put that very well. I thought you were saying that because he didn't get hurt in college or high school that this somehow isn't indicative of a potential pattern. I apologize. Alex Smith: Well at least it's impossible for anyone to have a worse injury and recovery than I had Reuben Foster: Hold my beer.

    Uh, and? He's missed a huge percentage of his games in the pros prior to signing with us. Thompson, like Love, was taken with the understanding that he was injury prone. I'm not sure where you're going with this, but I do agree that Thompson is Christ-like when he plays.

    Exactly. We have to wait for him to do a year in the booth, horribly, and then he can unretire and rejoin the team.

    To add nuance: There were only 24 possible games for him to play due to suspensions and release. He missed 10 effective games total (leaving in the first half I consider only playing half of a game) due to injury. So of the 24 he could play, he missed 10. Take away all the legal woes, he missed 42% of his games due to injury. That's insane to plan around.

    And we all let out a collective sigh with a shoulder shrug. That'll teach us to have optimism.

    Right? Don't go near Andy Reid. Ever.

    Keep in mind, too, that medically fine is one thing but if you depend on your knees for a living it can be different. I think back to Griffin's first ACL surgery being "good enough" but Andrews did, well, an Andrews-level job. Oh and yeah I think MRI's would help!

    Dude. It was overheard. It wasn't disclosed. No one is getting sued or cited or anything like that. This isn't taking a picture of a medical record like I think Schefter got a couple of years back. Yeesh. Source: I work medical and have to be trained on this to get my degree, license, and insurance.

    Gramatica tore his ACL celebrating a field goal. I'm not sure football shape would help. I do like the idea of the braces, though. It's not like they're illegal.

    I hope he's okay and that this is all just overblown, but this was a MAJOR concern when signing him, aside from all those legal sacks 'n stuff. Anecdotally, a huge number of Foster supporters just kept missing this point, over and over and over. https://sportsinjurypredictor.com/player/reuben-foster/9496 https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/timeline-reuben-fosters-troubles-career-alabama-redskins He missed 6.5 games due to injury in 2017, his rookie season. He missed 2.75ish games in 2018 after being suspended the first two and getting cut November 25. We signed him for peanuts, which is great, but had he not had his more-than-handful of behavior problems (I'll just put it that way), he'd still be a big injury risk. He missed more than half of a season's worth of games in less than two seasons, which were even shorter because of suspension. As disappointing as it is, as I was hoping to be wrong about his turnaround, I don't see how this is a shock to anyone. And yeah, Dukes has me on his side. "Freak injuries" is like the smart kid happening to fail at least one subject per week. That means he's not smart; he's dumb.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    You're not even joking. The amount of goodwill, if it were a REAL move, would be a reset for disillusioned-but-still-passionate fans like me. Legitimately put Kyle in charge, Bruce STFU, and Doug stop eating potatoes, and we'll be reset. Pile that on with a good draft and some classy moves by the FO, and I'd actually be optimistic. Did I spell that right? I haven't written it for so long.
  13. Remember when Trent Williams had the audacity to go out and buy a necklace after he was drafted? We all knew he was a bust right then and there.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Strangely, Keim just said on NFL Radio Network that Daniel Jones was a possibility and basically said that some people wanted Haskins but wouldn't trade up for him (nobody thought he'd fall), some wanted Rosen due to experience and upside.

    Press Release: #REDSKINS HIRE KYSHOEN JARRETT

    Sorry for the extensive multi-quote, but I think it's incredibly refreshing to see a bunch of posters, new and old, noticing that our front office is actually doing quite a few things right this offseason. I can't believe it myself. This was just a 100% classy and beneficial good move, of quite a few, that a crap FO is making. I'm impressed.
