In honor of the many Pre-season games this year; I have recieved, from the main office in Montoilet Springs, Idaho, our Top Ten list for this weekend:
Please enjoy and feel free to make any comments.Top Ten Pre-Season Injuries since "The Strike"
#10 Jeff Garcia (2005) Lions
#9 Jon Jansen (2004) Redskins
#8 Jerome McDougle (2003) Eagles
(These three injuries had immediate effect on the teams roster and time will only tell what long term effects will be felt.)
#7 Jason Sehorn (1997) Rams
#6 William Andrews (1984) Falcons
#5 Brandon Noble (2004) Redskins
#4 Ickey Woods (1991) Bengals
#3 Ki-Jana Carter (1995) Bengals
(These injuries destroyed promising careers and eventually resulted in their retirement.)
AND.... These two injuries were just devastating to a franchise and it's hopes of a championship.......possibly forever!!!!!!!!!!!
#2 Rex Grossman (2005) Bears#1 Michael Vick (2004) Falcons
This has been the plague of modern-day football. The pre-season injury can sink a ship bound for glory or capsize a rebuilding team.
Regardless; in this age of year round conditioning, is the pre-season a problem? or are the players just putting to much stress on their bodies?
As a fan I love the pre-season and enjoy the games. But; as a realist, I understand why it needs to be shortened. Can you imagine the type of seasons the Falcons or Bears could of had......or what kind of players Carter and Noble could have been?
Hope you enjoyed my list.................and Keep Living the Dream!
