    • Taking 1 (or even 2) weeks off probably won't make much of a difference - as long as he doesn't aggravate it to the point that it forces him to the sidelines, it's probably better if he just soldiers on through, especially with these next few games being critical to our postseason chances.
    • You went into a lot of detail about players who were added to the teams to be rotational players.  I was simply talking about positional value and the alignment of great talent into the positions you count on to make plays or play three downs.  Buckner is a great example.  He is a great 3T, where 3T is probably THE most important position on the defense.     Which is equal to...not better than...having Robert Mathis as an all pro edge and NFL season sack leader playing in a 34, where the EDGE is probably the most important position in a 34....if not the press man corner who can match up against the number one receiver of the other team...in which we had a great player in that important position too Vontae.  Take your pick as which position is more important....we had them both staffed with a great player.   Back then, we had great players in positions of high value, but less talent in the lower valued positions.  A formula that got us to about 10-6/11-5 every year and either a playoff loss or some degree of advancement...when Luck was healthy.   Now, we have less talent in positions of high value than back then, but we have better talent in lower valued rotational players.  A formula that has gotten us likely to the same place to 10-6 and a playoff loss after we added talent to our important 3T position and shored up the QB spot from last year.   Same level of overall talent....disbursed differently.....resulting in the same result or forecasted result.   What is so objectionable or controversial about that?    The point about the draft is that it is disappointing that the best players on our current team look to be rolling off within two years, making it more difficult to continue to have great talent in positions of high value.  At least back then, some of those great players gave us stability for 7 or more years.  I hope that we can replace them with young great players who can contribute for 7 or more years like they have.  Right now, we don't have a real future at QB, LT, #1WR, or at steady outside pass rush or #1CB, but we have a decent supporting cast of other players.   
    • My only question is will Rivers playing through it (because I think we can all agree the guy is tough) make it worse? Because we will need him come playoff time and it would be better to let Jacoby play one game and let him heal then let it get progressively worse to the point it significantly affects his play in the post season.
    • This is especially true with QB's.  Colt's always seem to understate QB injuries.   Peyton was always a few weeks away from playing with his neck injury... Ended on IR  Luck's lacerated Kidney was suppose to only keep him out like 3 or 4 weeks...  Ended on IR  Luck's was going to be ready for the season at some point after his shoulder surgery.  Ended on IR . .  Luck's calf strain was just a minor thing in OTA's that was going to be taken care of with a little rest... Luck retired from football
