    He actually pulled a "Kellen Winslow, Jr.".

    Nonetheless, the conspiracy still lives!!!
    Yea whats up with the Broncos saying he tore his ACL in practice when it really happened in a 4 wheeler accident. If it happened the weekend before the Broncos released the news, they definentely knew that he was gone when they signed Spikes.

    Yep, the Post article it was...

    "Alexander tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Friday during practice at the Broncos' quarterback camp. Coach Mike Shanahan was unavailable for comment Tuesday, and Alexander's agent, Neil Schwartz, declined comment."

    But it doesn't matter now, right? No one's going to care.

    Let's see.... should I read the thread about a possible conspiracy involving back up Guards, or do I read the thread about the GOAT Jerry Rice becoming a Bronco.

    Hmmm....
    Hehehe, i'll stick with the guards....freakin goat

    Did you read it in the actual paper? This story doesn't mention when it happened....

    In all seriousness, i read in the rockymountain news today that the injury occurred on friday, so the spikes signing was in response to it. Well, at least guard is one position we have a lot of players i'm interested to see play: sewell, myers, clabo (even though it looks like he's better at tackle), and now spikes. Sure wouldn't have minded adding evan mathis' name to that list, oh well. I'm really not sold on hamilton or carlisle as starters though.

    *edit* Oops, you beat me to it MnG.

    Interesting, but I looked in to the timing of it all and it doesn't make sense.

    From KFFL...

    Broncos | Spikes Signed
    Mon, 23 May 2005 09:59:58 -0700

    Broncos | Spikes Joins His Teammates at Practice
    Mon, 23 May 2005 15:00:34 -0700

    Broncos | Alexander Lost for the Season
    Tue, 24 May 2005 20:40:44 -0700


    Unless Alexander was actually injured sometime before 10:00 on Monday morning then I don't see it as being likely. Granted, Andrew Mason made the report that KFFL was referring to, but it's likely that the injury happened Tuesday afternoon - a day and a half after Spikes was signed.

    Quoting an article about the Spikes signing...

    "Spikes noted that he worked at right guard during his first practice. That spot was Dan Neil's domain for most of the past seven seasons, but Cooper Carlisle started there for the last month of the 2004 campaign, and P.J. Alexander rests in the mix, as well."

    No conspiracy here I'm afraid....

    or the broncos said there was an injury so that he would be persuaded to come to denver (if playing time could be a good possibility)

    Yes, but it was recently reported that Alexander was pushing Carlisle for the starting spot.

    Too bad... O-line depth is something we don't have.

    Spikes signing... Coincidence/great timing or reaction???

    I wonder if it was his first ACL tear. It's possible he could have torn an implant/graft from a old corrected injury.

    Even more incentive to draft an Offensive Lineman.
