    I cannot believe I will defend Vick, but Vick for the most part have been on teams with crappy RB, all his years in Atlanta he had a lot of nobodies in the backfield with him. But the analogy fits when your QB has the mentality to run first he is in for a long painful career.

    I don't think it's a big deal if RG3 was using HGH for healing. Steroids are common in rehabilitation as well in certain scenarios. If the NFL could regulate the issue by having physicians report such situations, who really cares?

    I tend to agree.

    However, if someone hurts their arm, and takes HGH, they could theoretically use the drug to improve their leg strength during that time, so its hard to say who is actually using it get to get healthy, and who is trying to cheat.

    Yea... he needs to cover! They screwed up and they know it. I will believe it when i see it. Two acl replacements on the same knee can and will cause problems.

    They better hope so seeing as they mortaged and ruin them with picks and horrible cap sapce for many years too come. But in the end it won't matter they are a mild contender and thats it no superbowls or even close.

    Not sure where you're getting that 'horrible cap space for many years to come' idea from. They haven't restructured a bunch of guys at this point to push money into later years (like the Cowboys did), anything done this year so far is simply single year pay cuts to free up a little space.

    At the moment they have 48 players under contract with $36 million in cap room for 2014. They have a few key guys coming up that they will need to get new deals with but they're far being in a bad situation as far as future cap space goes.

    Yup, make fun of a typo. The point still stands: there has been the typical parroting BSPN misreporting in this thread (Mike Vick 2.0, 2 ACL tears, etc.), and I find it highly entertaining. I appreciate your efforts.

    I'm a Skins fan and I don't trust those rehab reports. RG3 had two injuries that took him out of games this past year. And when you have to rebuild a knee twice? Ai yi yi.

    And remember all the rose colored types who said every week (at the end) that he was getting better and then every week he had the damned brace on...and then he blew it out.

    Yeah, that's fair. I'm sort of a wait and see person on the whole thing.

    I really don't know what to make of it all as it seems odd someone who spent a lifetime building a reputation like Andrews would just come out and blatantly lie when he could be proven wrong so quickly.

    Wait and see. :)

    Comments should probably be look at in relative terms.

    "Superhuman" compared to someone who didn't go through the whole drawn out process of injuring it twice with the last one ultimately being significant?

    Probably not.

    "Superhuman" compared to where you would expect a guy who has gone through all that to be? Maybe.

    Drew Brees supposedly had a crack wreck in his should and his recovery seemed to be pretty quick. Here's a quote from a story about Brees' surgery when Andrews first took a look at the damage.

    I don't see why he would B.S. the situation because piling B.S. on top of B.S. usually doesn't go over all too well.

    A crack wreck in his should?

    That sounds nasty.

    Gotta laugh at a medical doctor trying to be credible while describing a patient as superhuman.

    If you defined a set period for recovery or had checks in place then I'm all for it. I can see how a player would claim I'm still recovering two years later and in part that would be a small part true. But I like this idea.

    And why would Dr Andrews need to blow his own horn? He doesn't need to enhance his reputation at all. And there are other players who are now advancing this fast in their recovery. AP and Lattimore are just two that I know of and that's off the top of my head.
