Is it just me or does it feel like it's out of control?
Vikings QBs, all of them.
It goes on and on and on. Seems anymore the only constant in the NFL is that the players WILL get injured. It's no longer a matter of if, but when. Isn't there a competition committee? The owners say they care about players safety, but clearly they don't. I don't understand. Would they rather pay a guy millions of dollars to sit, to rehab all year???
IMO it's killing the product. I think artificial turf is a HUGE culprit. I also, think it's well past time they completely revamp the protective gear they wear. I don't think they should be wrapped in bubble wrap, but I don't care if extra padding slows the players down. If everyone must wear it, then it will affect everyone the same. If it slows the RB down by 4%, then it will do the same to the DL, LB and DB that chase him. I know a lot of non-contact injuries can't be prevented by additional padding. So what. Many contact injuries would. How many broken ankles and wrists have there been? A QB has a fractured back for crying out loud!!!
FF is becoming agonizingly frustrating with all these injuries. We draft guys and expect them to be out on the field. If they stink or the defense of the other team was just better, then that I can live with.
Teams can't win on the field if their studs are out. Same with FF, can't win when your guys are injured.
What can be done?
