this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I just talked to a friend in the know. Not only did they amputate his left hand (which hit an Oakland player's helmet) -- they also amputated his right hand by mistake.
Awful, awful situation.
Better have a generous gf or his life will be rough with no hands.
Ugh... Update #2 -- they also accidentally amputated Calvin Johnson's left leg. This medical staff SUCKS with communication.
I can weld a peg with a castor on it. He can still run, but jumping will be rough.
Back to the old Lions. FAW2L was and always will be the Ford's battle cry. Find a way to lose! P.S. does anyone else hate that annoying lions roar they play at Ford Field?
I know you can only see his posts on the mobile app but is Roachgoblue the biggest troll on the blog aside from the party room? Any reason banned accounts still show up on the mobile app?
Watch it now. The orthopedic surgeon for the Lions is a Michigan Man (undergrad and med school). He was also a walk-on QB-moved-to-FB. His career was short lived however. He blew out his ACL his freshmen year, had surgery and rehabbed the entire year, only to blow it out again as a sophomore.
Dr. Kyle Anderson? My father, also a Michigan man, has had 3 surgeries from him in the last year. Dr. A should definitely stick to football players.
Damn it . . . Madden curse strikes again!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, MY FANTASY TEAM IS RUINED!!!! I DON'T HAVE A BACKUP QB!!
this be in the Lions thread? If not, all I can tell you is that all of my Stafford shirts are crisp and durable.
Stafford Supershirts, ftw!
non throwing hand was injured.
covered in an ice pack.
that be all i know.
Left hand pinched between his helmet and the defender when getting hit. Wrapped up with ice, nothing serious.
By the way, for anyone interested and unfamiliar, prideofdetroit.com is an excellent Lions blog. Sean Yuille, a Michigan grad who ran Michigan Sports Center a while back, does a really nice job over there.
Nice title. That is all.
Outstanding thread title.
Comment blog snob
Yes. Now that you mention it we are going to need a running back (any running back) for the first couple games of the season. Having one for the entire season would be nice, too. Having a great running back would help us take the next step...
I hear Maurice Jones-Drew is looking to get traded, anybody got any cap space handy?
Eh, not so much. The Lions have a ton of money in Calvin, Stafford and Suh (all went #2 overall before new CBA). He's great but he'll be 30 soon and for the money he wants, it's just not all that worth it.
MJD has decent talent, but grossly overestimates his own self-worth. If I was a coach, I wouldn't want him in my locker room.
A RB would be nice, but in today's NFL they aren't needed nearly as much as people think. The Lions are clearly a passing offense, in fact it's what the team does best. For our offense, running backs just need to convert 3rd and shorts. The thing standing between the Lions and consistent winning seasons are CB's and Safety's. This team is heading in the right direction through good coaching and quality management, oh and a great young QB.
Mikel Leshoure actually showed a lot even though he only netted 1 yard. He showed good lateral movement and lowered his shoulder a time or two and delivered a good pop. He kind of runs like Steven Jackson (but obviously isn't as good at this point). I'm interested to see if he becomes a 15-20 carry guy with Best out.
X-rays for Stafford negative. This is positive.
Maybe he needs some Skele-gro...
And said he is done for the season if not 2/3.... This blows
Quite the premature assessment.
If this post is indeed about Stafford then your trainer buddy is an idiot. He injured his none throwing hand, and the x-rays came back negative. If this isn't about Stafford then who is it about?
It's about your mom...
Sarcasm my friend
The last thing I wanted to see on this fair night was Terrelle Pryor highlights. Icky.
Like the glass man is broken again.
