    People are going to extremes. Injuries or not there are 4 or 5 worse teams in the league just based on poor coaching and roster, two of them, the Jets and Panthers, are on our schedule. It'll take 2 or fewer wins to get the top pick, Denver will have at least 5 or 6.

    If we are certain Lock is the guy, we trade #1 pick to the absolute highest bidder and do what we can to get Sewell. That could even be the #2 team in the draft wants to ensure they get TL and we get multiple high round picks to build our team with. Otherwise, TL hands down and there is no question we have our QB for 5 years, hopefully franchise QB.

    It depends on how he plays. I can't really say for sure even with stats if most are his fault i may be looking at tl. But let's say 6 of the 8 ints bumped off a wrs hands was a good throw and db just happened to be in the right place and picked it. I think both those numbers are low. I am kinda feeling 20 td like 12 to 15 ints. Which I would totally keep riding with lock and improve the oline

    At one time Hamilton reminded me of E Sanders. We also have Patrick who has looked decent. I do really like Albert O and I have been very disappointed to not get a chance to see him play at all. But, honestly, the biggest two things to me are that Driskel needs to step up and our OC needs to create plays/game plans that work for what we have. Those two passing plays on 3rd and 4th down just killed me. That 4th in particular...our plan was that since our RT was going to get beat anyway we should expect our QB to act like we didn't have one and complete the pass anyway? Come on. That's Tom Brady stuff, making up for having no O-Line at all. That's not crap you pull with a back up QB who has barely started.

    Smith tore pretty much everything in his knee including his ACL in college in 1992 fielding a punt. It was basically a dirty hit on Rod.

    Klis said Sutton completely blew the knee out... more than just an ACL... feels he’ll be fortunate to be healthy start of next season.

    Interesting note, he said he watched Sutton working all week on catching ball beneath his eyes. He noticed a few times in the game CS dropped ball or got cross attempting this very same thing he was working on in practice... including the play he got hurt (where he tipped ball up then blew out knee chasing Hayden).
    I'm sure they won't know the damage, and ultimately severity of things until they get in there. It also depends which ligaments are gone. Obviously the ACL is gone, but if the MCL is damaged, that just needs rest (usually) to heal. With him being able to walk off, I can't see it being Willis McGahee catastrophic. According to the reports I saw, it was damage to the ACL and MCL.

    Yikes. Sutton out for the year is horrible. I feel badly for him. I remember draftniks saying that Jeudy was capable of being the #1WR on our team. I guess it's time to find out if that's true. I think Hamler can be the #3WR/slot guy. So we need someone on the active roster to step up as the #2WR as of right now. We also need Albert O to get healthy because our OC needs to be more creative - I want to see some 2WR/2TE/1RB sets. Driskel needs to soak up this Offense and make his practice reps count, but having a couple of safety valve TE's on the field would help him out since his RT isn't going to. At all.

    No it was I think 2006? It's what forced him to retire.

    Prior to that he only missed 4 games due to injury or whatever.

    I believe Rod was closer to the end when he tore his. But even in the last decade+ medical advancements have changed drastically. He probably won’t lose a step. Con came back and won SB MVP...........

    Remember when a blown Achilles was virtually a career ender. Now, it’s basically what an ACL was 5 years ago. Medical Science is amazing!
