    Oh hell yeah we always are asking WHY.
    Some blame the strength & conditioning, the training. I blame 90% bad luck at this point in time.
    Sterling Sharpe's neck didn't go for any reason other than bad luck.
    Nick Collins, who was better than DaShon Goldson and entering his prime, that was 100% bullschit bad luck.

    Sherrod? That was a nasty fluke thing where a DE from the opposite side went around Rodgers and landed into Sherrod's leg just as it was planting.... career-ending it appears.

    Bulaga's ACL?
    Happened in the team scrimmage and nobody even knew anything was wrong til the next day.
    Still haven't seen HOW it happened.

    Al Harris, Aaron Kampman, and Robert Brooks all tore their ACLs with no contact in games versus your 49ers, on the ground of Lambeau Field.
    Brooks was a different era, it was 1996.
    Harris and Kampman's happened in 2009 on the same Alex Smith-led drive, about 2 plays apart.
    All 3 of those torn ACL's came with no contact. They weren't the cheap shots that led to Dustin Keller, Jordan Shipley, Willis McGahee, Ovie Mughelli, Brian Cushing, Eric Berry, Adrian Peterson kind of torn ACLs.

    There is such a thing as luck in the world, in sports. Bad luck and good luck. And it doesn't always even up. Try testing that in Vegas sometime.......

    Wow.

    Yeah...sometimes...Sh*t happens.

    Last year on THE SAME PLAY....

    A certain Saints LB who shouldn't have even been in the game because he was supposed to be suspended (cough...Vilma...cough) ran up to the LOS where he initially engaged Kyle Williams. Wasn't even much contact and Williams buckled and fell to the ground. Torn ACL. First game back is a start this week. As the play continued the now unblocked Vilma chased down Kendall Hunter from behind....tearing his Achilles. Done for the year. He too has his first game back this sunday.

    One play. 2 players done for the year. Hit twice by a player who shouldn't have been in the game.

    Sigh.

    That's brutal.
    ACL and an Achilles. Two biggies.
    At least it wasn't to Crabtree or Davis, or Gore, or Staley.
    Any of those 4 (not Gore) and you don't get past Atlanta. Maybe Goldson and Bowman or Willis too.
