    Made a nice diving catch yesterday that he might have tweaked something during. I wouldn't be too worried not like he has a lot of learning to do in this offense.

    anyone remember the early 1990's era?
    remember sterling sharpe, robert brooks, antonio freeman? they all got hurt, often at times.
    it was so bad by 1996 we had to bring in andre rison, almost desperate.
    it even got so bad after that, that bill schroeder STARTED games for us.

    my point is our WRs have been remarkably durable the past 5 years or so.
    jennings and driver, jordy & jones..... we've been pretty fortunate there.

    AR has a lot to do with that.
    He makes the right throws to keep the WRs on their feet until their ready for the tackle.

    Well partly true I guess.
    But Robert Brooks tore his ACL at the LOC with no contact.
    And Jennings knee injury last year came on basically just a plant & cut.
    Sterling Sharpe's was a fluke...... those things are bad luck, nothing to do with the pass.

    What the ole Gunslinger did do a lot was almost get Robert Brooks head taken off with forces into traffic.
    Rodgers doesn't force em like the old Slinger did, but there's a lot of luck.
