Play smarter, Bolts, those couple extra yards aren't worth it, and you're doing your team a disservice by risking injury to pad your stats.

Remember LT started getting injured in '07 when every running back started imitating Adrian Peterson and fighting for extra yards instead of escaping toward the sideline.
There was a time long ago when a running back heading toward the sidelines was considered cowardly play...when a player has the ball in his hands he is not thinking about playing it safe, it's all about making a play and putting it all on the line for your team. It's not like he tried to go head on into two players at the goal line...tried to make a cut away from the defender while contact was being made, and got caught awkward.

Dam. I was hoping the MCL rumors were true.

That really sucks for Woodhead because he's a UFA next year. Godspeed Danny.

Have you read the NFL injury report league wide for this week?

It's far from being a Chargers monopoly.

You may remember him from such games as "the worst trick play in colts history"

But can you point to another team that lost its #1 and #2 WRs? AND 2 out of 3 of its RB's (Woody and BO)?

It's weird that we seem to get whole "units" wiped out. Last year being the O-Line.

Get real Tom, we have more key players go down year after year than anyone. How about our GM get in new strength and Conditioning coaches, do something different. Yes, everyone has injuries, it's part of the game, but it's a freaking joke on this team. Even a homer like yourself can see that.

If your gonna call a MOD a homer, make sure its the right one at least.
Good Grief.

You can have Jesus as your Strength and Conditioning Coach and you will still have players go down... ACLS are a tendon not a muscle, you can't workout a tendon. Blaming the workout staff does nothing and is irrelevant.
