Similar to a motor vehicle accident injury, yes.
No matter his positioning, he is likely to be susceptible to another dislocation again, unfortunately.
True, but each instance has it's own unique scenario.
I have no position on this right now.
All of that may figure in etc... but I feel the condition of, blood supply to, and the healing of the articular cartilage is the most pressing issue. And it is still too early for that determination. (+ AVN)
And for every Bo Jackson/Dennis Pitta story, there is also a C.J. Mosley success story. I hope well for the kid.
I like to think he’s NOT ok with the idea of JB starting.
It’s harsh reality...but there is just far too much downside...he’s not cheap...he limits Reich’s playbook...he hampers the pass catchers (which is especially critical for ones developing)...and he’s playing for his career (not trying to mentor his replacement)...and that’s just on the football side of it.
Ballard is a smart person...who came from an org that realized Alex Smith (a much more accomplished QB who made the playoffs) wasn’t enough to get the job done. He will do the right thing.
Agreed, but, I think CB is in some ways more transparent about things than others. I think when he speaks of needs and wants, he's pretty sincere and an astute person can read between the lines where he is headed.
Example: He says that locker room is important, and that fits with his actions in FA where he hasn't really signed any high priced FA.
IMO, he has expressed a desire to not have the team revolve around a $150 million QB. I tend to think that he is not searching the world looking for the next PM or AL. I could see him using a mild level of capital to move up a few slots for Herbert, but I don't see him fussing over having to find that next great QB savior to carry the team on his back. In fact, I think he wants to avoid having the team built that way. To me, that says something about his FA and draft strategy.
