    What happens if Smith is not ready to play next summer? 

    It is December now it will take at least six months before he's even walking again and the end that's before you factor in complications and additional surgeries. Even with aggressive rehab it's going to take time and you do not put this guy on the field until he's 100% because doing otherwise puts him at risk of truly ending his career. Presuming of course that he hasn't already reached

    Omg that trailer is Dallas dumb

     

    I liked the trailer, the slobbering intro from THe espn Host.. not so much>

    My understanding, there was a character Marvel... and Captain Marvel was a woman who took his name after he gave it up for earth

    Fractured Right Fibula for Colt Mccoy why was he walking on it?  (Fire the training staffa fter the game)  BOdy bag 2.0!!

    I actually agree with you.  This, in my mind, was a smart and savvy move. 



    It certainly could be savvy, smart... I'm reserving judgement.  However, it is smart in one way... Is anyone talking about the thanksgiving debacle in Dallas anymore?  Nope, it might be causing turmoil inside the locker room, but I've not heard anything that would make me think that to be so.  Time will tell ultimately.


  4. I dislike domestic violence so strongly..... THe situation with this Ex, Is not clear to me from media reports yet what is going. The investigation is pending.  If he's on the Commissioner exempt list, fine, I don't know how you could let a guy play or leave his current zipcode while under investigation anyways.  What confuses me is Doug going out and apologizing for something today.  I must have missed a bit of news, but we continue to look like a front office with ZERO PR skill.  Whether decision is Golden or wasted breath will tell in time, but its frustrating to see our franchise in these situations seemingly all the time.

  5. Even with all the injuries, all the dysfunction, I still think the odds are good that 2 of 5 are wins down the stretch, that's 8-8.... is it enough for the playoffs in the end?  May depend on whom we beat, and hat dallas does in the same stretch.


  6. Okay so just a rib injury for Trent... that's a relief, I was looking for articles and one NBC article used wording that sounded more like a stroke.  We cannot afford to lose Trent long term, whether he's back the rest of the season or not.

    Josh Norman

    Jordan Reed

    Chris Thompson

    Vernon Davis

    Stacy McGee

    Paul Richardson(June 1st)

    Samaje Perine



    I never wanted to keep Perine, and he wasn't healthy enough, I'd let him and Fat Rob go.  Vernon.  I still like the guy, he's played good at times, but hes' not a number 1 tight end.  Jordan, I think took a while to find his feet in season because of the injury.

    Norman, I don't care either way, same with Thompson, but I'd only trade Thompson if you are planning to Resign AP.

    NO love for Stacy, and Paul I think did some good things, but may be redundant with the emergency of Quinn.

    My real worry is the OL.  Sherf needs retained, We need a new LG, probably a rookie, and then there is Trent.    Some of the reports almost made it sound like he was having a stroke or something.  If Trents health  is going south, then this team is in serious trouble on the oline, and there is no sugar coating that.

    You aren't going to See SMith go, I don't think he can be cut until he emerges from rehab, and if that's8-10 months, you can't count on him at all.

    We need another young Corner, and I think with the addition and retention of Dix, you have some Safety possibilities.  I"m not all that big on Swearinger, but i'd not rock the boat for or against him.


  8. WHo is at QB doesn't matter if we don't improve pass protection.  We need a new Tackle, and a new Left Guard.

    I've been dreaming of taking a LT/LG early then trading up late in the 1st for someone like WIll Grier (but I doubt he lasts that long)

  9. On the recovery from injury.  My wife broke her leg up near the hip several years ago, (not the same injury) she's still not walking without the aid of walker.  She got a titanium rod too, but it was almost 2 months before any wait at all could go on that leg, It was multiple months befor she was released from Rehab.   2.5 years later still recovering.  Granted Alex is fitter, younger, and healthier, he'll bounace back faster for sure, but will he be ready for camp?  I doubt it.

    GTFO with that conspiracy BS.  Jay is not going to intentionally get any of his players hurt.  Pathetic you even posted that nonsense.


    Conspiracy?  We've been complaining about how bad the Oline has been all year.  SO is that All jays fault, no.... but you have to wonder what would it take for Snyder to say enough, could this injury have been it?  I dunno, and I'm not trying to start trouble either, We are still in the hunt for the Playoffs (technically so why fire him now), but that loss, that injury is going to have a profound impact on the fan base and team.  Not since Sean Taylor was murdered, have I felt quite like this.  It's really surreal.  LIstening to JoeyT talking on Post Game about it.... yeah.... you almost can't believe it.   Yeah lets give it a few days to calm down.

    Does Alex's season ending injury, basically save Gruden from being fired?  He has the ultimate excuse now if we collapse and miss the playoffs; he lost his starting QB.



    Given there was no blitz killer on that play, I wondered if Gruden could be fired for cause.

    The FG might have been dan saying, look, let's just evaluate our talent the rest of the way, try to improve draft position.  yeah.. figures.  we were 6-2 at one point?
