    sure, but his value to the team is how he strecthes the field so everybody else gets open. that of course is coming from his supporters that want the organization to pay him 10, 11 12+ million per year. i guess it was a wise decsion not to mortgage the frasnchises future to sign wallace if he cant get deep anymore

    I'm sure Hermione knows a healing spell that could be used on Wallace's groin.

That's what Mike missed and no amount training can simulate the movements that you may have to make during an NFL game during a one-on-one drill in pads or without pads. You need to be getting pushed and bumped by potentially 1, 2 or 3 guys on one play. You may have to break a route off quicker than expected due a 240 pound linebacker bearing down on you. There is no way to simulate a defense that doesn't want you to go where you want go until you step on the field.

    I'm sure Mike worked hard and if all he had to do was run in a straight line he may never pull a groin or hammy. Once you have to start running real routes to avoid a good NFL defender then the dynamics of what you need to do physically change and that's when strains, pulls and sprains occur.

    He's injured, he may have been injured regardless of hold out, the hold out had very little to do with it, missing live football scrimmages and games probably had more to do with it than anything.

    I couldn't help but think about the combine in all of these discussions. If training in shorts is so relevant to playing then why don't we just automate the whole draft process. Whoever ranks the best in the various combine tests gets automatically drafted first and so forth.

    why stop there? there should be no pads or any contact thru OTAs, training camp and once the season starts. the only time you put on a uniform and pads is for the games

    Why stop there? Just put flags on the players for the games and don't even bother with the pads...

    Just have the players all connect up with one another on the Playstation Network and play each other on Madden 13. Of course, then we'd have a whole bunch of former players coming out of the woodwork to sue the NFL for carpal tunnel syndrome.

    You are incorrect. "Beyond" means over and above, as in, the assertion is excessively inaccurate. Don't quit your day job; thinking ain't you thing.

    And I can like whatever team I damnnn want to and there is nothing you can do about it.

    I'm with you on this one, it's very annoying when another Steeler fan tells you to go root for another team just because they disagree with you or don't like what you have to say.
