I would rather go down with the motha ******** pontoon boat if i received that poop dick of an offer. 

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) out for Week 1 (One week later) "...The issue here is the pain Golladay would feel when trying to raise his arms above his head to catch passes. "

An injury story might be the least interesting CSB on these forums

I’ll have you know in my prime Michael Jordan wouldn’t be able to beat me one on one and I’d make Julio Jones look like Kelvin Benjamin after his 10th Krispy Kreme donut.

I'm wondering if this lack of preseason is causing a problem for WR's not having enough time to ramp up their work in preparation for the season. First Evans, now Kenny G. Injuries could be a big problem this year. I think having quality backups will be more important than ever.

 

I don't buy this.  These guys had all off season to prepare their bodies for the upcoming season.  If anything, no preseason should reduce the amount of injuries.  I also don't buy the "gotta get your body ready for getting hit".  There is really no logic to having your body get hit viciously now is going to prevent you from getting hurt when you are viciously hit later.

Makes total sense.  You train all offseason in a controlled environment.  You can't fully prepare for when you're back running full speed with 21 other guys having to make unexpected split second cuts that can stress your body in ways you can't really simulate.

 

Prayers to Golladay's bum hamstring, I have high hopes for him this year.

You are doubling down on your illogical stance.  Got it.  Agree to disagree.  Moving on.

I feel you on the viciously part. Ain't nothing good or avoidable on that. But then it comes to taking contact, hits, and playing football, being in the rhythm of it does help. The more that you get hit and fall (not the vicious hits), the more you subconsciously learn to compensate and not take big impacts. Plus, there's a notable difference between soft tissues injuries and getting banged up. Granted, sometimes things like a hamstring strain can be caused from taking a hit and increasing inflammation in point A (quad) and compensating in point b (hamstring). 

All in all, I agree with you, but I wouldn't say that there's no logic in getting into football shape,, probably mentally more than physically, to avoid injury. Is the horse dead yet?

Mental for sure.  Physical...nah.  Not at this level.  You have been playing football since high school or later....your body (and mind) know how to react....it's not like these guys are spending years away from the game...it is 8 months.

I Was an athlete and NEVER had a real hamstring Injury. I do remember having it cramp up on me in one of my high school games but stretched it out and missed maybe 3 plays. Unacceptable

And my coach in high school said he'd be disappointed if he doesn't see a hamstring injury in the season.  Injuries happens when one plays hard, you must be soft.

On to fantasy, does this help Marvin if he sits out, more targets. Or does it hurt marvin with more attention?
