Brandon Marshall?  Or no one?

 

Whatever happened to Jeremy Maclin? I know he wasn't good last year in Baltimore but he has been solid in the past and should have more gas in the tank than Marshall

Maclin had a surgery recently and is definitely out for all of 2018.

How much was Dez signed for, and how much will he be paid even though he never played a game or down ?

 

$600,000

 

He’ll be paid all of it because his injury was work related. It happened in practice.

 

i know he is kicking himself for turning down that $11 million contract the Ravens offered him. Dumbest move ever. Hustling backwards.

Okay how about "disappointment that was hyped to win weeks/league and ends up not even being a weekly start" 

 

Examples: Dez, tre'quan, Jamal Charles, Mostert, etc

He was a "just in case" keep away flier for most owners...no league winning expectations for playoff-bound teams, low investment meant little disappointment.

The team already said they don't expect him to play. It would be quite a fast turnaround to go from signed Tuesday to on the field Sunday.

 

Yea...I would expect no gamesmanship from Sean Payton as he goes on the road to play a semi-tough opponent.

 

The point is moot now however...

They said they all heard the "pop" out on the field. He's done dude.

 

Ruptured my achilles about 10 years ago on the basketball court...the guys around me said it sounded like a bubble gum pop.  It was damn loud in my head when it happened.

That wasn't necessarily Maclin's fault.

uh...ya think?

 

guy just suffered a career ending injury. hot taek captain obvious

 

Achilles rupture is not career ending...by any means.  He had the "good" rupture also...where it snapped in two.  It doesn't even hurt much...you go down because it obvious that the knee bone ain't connected to the ankle bone no more...and your lower leg goes pins and needles, like it's asleep...and feels bruised at worst.   You come back strong from that...back to 100% easily if you do the right work and have the right orthopedic surgeon.  

 

That bad achilles injury is when it rips off the heel bone...that's the one when you see a person laying on the ground grabbing their leg and shattering windows with their screams.  Just saw that happen on the softball field a month ago...it was bad to watch.  I personally had the first one and was back to 100% in 7 months.

 

Too bad...I grabbed him because I had the room hoping to catch a nice WR2 or Flex by the playoffs.  Oh well.

Valid point. Google 1938 Time magazine person of the year. Solidified your point.

 

Time Mag's 'Person of the Year' has never been meant to be an endorsement of the person or their views--it's a decision about who has been 'important' that year. You can't deny Hitler, or Stalin the year after, or Stalin in 42, or Truman in 45, or Nixon twice, or Khomeini in 79, or Trump in 16 weren't important to the happenings on the planet, regardless of their morality/public opinion.

Nothing like fighting a battle that doesn't need to be fought.
