    That's why you are 7thFloorRA and not on the sidelines with a headset for a professional football team. IMO

    Maybe our guy's are just babied panzy's. I mean that in all seriousness to because Shields got kicked in the ankle and missed like 5 games....i've had a bone bruise several times and may have missed 1 game at the most. I do beleive the strategy is to let these guy's heal 100% before bringing them back... which is dumb because if you play football you'll never be 100% the entire season. If you are 85-90% you should be playing. I honestly believe Matthews is healthy enough to play but they are over protecting him.

    That's quite possible. And as we saw with Jordy, sometimes when you come back a bit too soon, you can break down and be worse off.
    I think they want to make sure Clay is good to go for when it's do-or-die, meaning playoffs.

    I get it with a hamstring because that will just get worse and worse and for players that rely on speed its a killer injury that needs to be fully healed. Not the same with the ankle of an O-lineman or the bone bruise Shields had. Wasn't Jennings also ready to go for the Giants game but they kept him out to work on his conditioning??

    With Shields, with Tramon, House and Hayward healthy, perhaps they were trying to send a message to him, or felt that the other 3 were just better.
    Sam is a pure speed guy, and I guess if he's 85% 0r 90%, he might be worthless.

    I wish we had some big physical CB's like those punks in Seattle... or big hitters like the 49er gangstas. Seems like all ours, House, Tramon, Shields, are thin, wirey, NOT physical.... and it seems that bad tackling is a recurring issue back there.

    Hire the Rock as strength trainer?

    The only corner out of those teams I would even consider is Carlos Rogers.

    It wasn't a joke. It was valid question because apparently you don't know how long it takes to recover from a significant bone bruise. In practical terms, it's not much different than a stress fracture. You play on it before it's healed, you stand a good chance of breaking it completely. 2 months is not an unreasonable recovery time at all.

    All of this means nothing. Nobody remembers the injuries if you win, or if you lose. As pointed out by others, Rogers is the key. Game over if he goes down.

    That's only because we don't have a decent backup

    Even a "Decent backup" is a HUGE step down from the talent and skills Rodgers brings to the table, so I'm not sure it matters who we have backing QB1 up.

    I guess being overly cautious with "the talent" is better than being reckless with "the help". Case in point, 'Skins handling of Griffen injury. I have to say that an NFL team should be taking better care of their assets, particularly a QB who has the potential to be a franchise QB, long-term. I mean, the 'skins WON with Cousins ... it's not like they didn't have a chance without Griffen...there comes a time when the franchise has to overrule the player...particularly THAT type of an investment.

    So...the Pack sit their guys down...it's irritating at the time, but, long-term it's the right thing to do.

    It's a rare thing to have a team with great depth at most positions. Maybe it was the luck of the schedule that we played weaker teams when CMIII and Woodson were out, but our backups filled in nicely (though not as nice as our starters). Very few teams have such depth, that's a testimony to TT's draft abilities.
