    I keep reading AADP saying something about his hamstring but in every article I've read nothing was mentioned about his hamstring. Mike said nothing about his hamstring.

    Where can I find some information on Jennings injury to his hamstring from last night.

    Or is AADP jus being a drama queen about the hamstring that has been nagging at Jennings all season?

    I think he's just nutty from the potentially career-ending nature of Roger Clemens and his bad hammy.

    Kinda hard to confuse an ugly old, white, washed-up, ineffective 2.2 inning starter for a team on the decline with a dashing, young, black, potential-laden dynamo on a team on the rise. But hey, no one ever said you had to be smart to be a Yankees fan. ;) Or a mod, for that matter. :p

    I'll ban you all!

    But zero, I obviously don't know wtf I'm talking about. :-?

    In Winny's thread, I meant to say that Greg got an IV for his hammy (he did, didn't he :-? ) and returned to the game.

    I ended up butchering what I meant because I was exhausted when I typed that out and later edited it.

    I'm worried more so about Greg's hamstring because it's been more nagging than I am about Greg's shoulder. That ISN'T to say that Greg's shoulder isn't injured, because it is.

    Pardon my boo-boo.

    AADP.. I thought as well that they mentioned a IV for cramping as well...

    They tied the reference between Wynn and Jennings.. on top of the shoulder. Maybe I was distracted and mis-heard it. Or maybe Madden and Micheals had bad info :thumbsup:

    I think it'll be best to eventually merge this thread with Winnie's in a few hours. :)

    Yeah I'm wondering what on earth I was thinking/doing then because now I'm all confused about the IV deal. I thought it was Jennings they were talking about getting the IV (in addition to Wynn) but now I think I may have been in another universe and misinterpreted that.

    The fantasy football site that my league uses finally posted an update about Jennings that referred to him as "fragile." Ugh.. I hate to see that label put on the guy. I think it's a bit early to say that.

    But I worry about all of our receivers, actually. We're running them on those short little post routes and such and then making them battle for the extra yards. Jennings and Driver can juke and move but still, those guys are getting pounded a bit. Oh well.. such is life I guess. ;)

    Jennings has proven thus far that he is indeed fragile. Hopefully he breaks that mold soon.

    The worst part.. we play the Skins this weekend and their hard hitting pair of safeties.. the Lions wouldn't challenge them inside.

    If we make it through that game with all receivers in tact.. I will breathe a sigh of relief.

    Good point about the Skins, 93. I'd hate to be an NFL receiver who makes his lunch with slant routes, then sit and watch film of Taylor/Landry gettin it done. *shudder*

    Maybe we'll see alot more deep fades and sideline routes, or even a few sluggo's (I think that's what it's called: pump on the slant, then a deep go-route?)

    Good news is though, we can run now. (at least for a half)

    He's also proven that he is a demi-god. Which proves what he proved to you wrong.

    Greg Jennings new nickname is the Paradox.

    We need the kid on the field.
    I hope K-Rob can come back soon. That would be an extra threat.

    He's fine. History shows Mike drags this stuff out.

    Just saw the post practice interview with Greg ( Oct 11th ) and although he did not practice, he seems confident about playing on Sunday.

    Sounds like the only thing he seemed a little concerned about was the timing aspect between him and Brett due to not being able to practice on the field.

    Hopefully, they will be able to get into stride fast.

    All in all, it sounds pretty good !!

    Cheers

    I think Jennings is like Plaxico. He doesn't need to practice cuz he'll score a touchdown anyway.

    He's played less than Driver and Jones and he has just as many TD's as they do combined.

    I may be a pessimist but we seem to have more than our share of "fragile" players. But talented. I hope for long and successful careers for Jennings and Jones. Of course, I hope Driver can continue on but age will rear its ugly head all too soon. It won't be easy to replace what Donald does for this team. These young guys have a great teacher to learn from, both in talent and character.
