    What are the chances?

    With Wallace coming in late, what are the odds that he gets injured either in the preseason and at the start of the season? How many times have you seen guys come in later and promptly get injured because they try to run when out of shape? And don't forget, you can be "in shape" without being in "football shape." Chances are that he is going to tweak something. But, he will probably recover and be fine, we just might miss him for a few games.

    Wallace won't be able to play in any of the preseason games so the odds of him getting hurt then are zero.

    I've heard guys that wait this long to show up tend to not be productive that season. Not sure if that's true or not. Think I heard someone talking about it on the radio during the last week or so in reference to Wallace and MJD.

    If he isn't productive it will be because he has visions of Woodrows dancing in his head.... waiting on free agency next season.one-hundred-thousand-100000-dollar-bill-thumb.jpg

    He may be in BETTER shape by missing the hits and redundancies of camp. I hear he's been working out on his own.

    Not on his own...with renowned conditioning guru Tom Shaw in Orlando. That's where Ike Taylor spends every offseason training, and I do not ever recall Ike Taylor missing even a single game due to injury in his entire career.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Of course. Still on his own and outside of the organization.

    If hes waiting on FA, he'd best be productive. Hard to negotiate a Fitzgerald-like contract with a season and a half of poor production on your resume.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    I'm too lazy to look now, but is there any kind of article that shows any empirical evidence that those who miss camp are more likely to get hurt or be unproductive? It wasn't my impression that it would be the case, but I've been wrong before.

    Here's an article I found when doing a quick search:
    [url]http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/nfl/41022/125/holdout-history[/url]

    Might be some fantasy football article on this stuff that's more comprehensive. Some FF gurus probably know the impact of this sort of thing better than the rest of us.
