    From what I've read, he'll be ready for training camp?

    Am I missing something?

    Almost entirely my own paranoia. Foot injuries for guys that size are hard to come back from. The fact that he tried to come back on it early last year and coulnd't, and then was supposed to be ready for OTAs and that got pushed back to training camp has got me spooked.

    I actually don't see this happen to often, at all, in the gym when I'm going. The only time this happens is if someone doesn't stretch properly, has poor technique, or is trying to push up more weight than they can handle. If you're stretching properly, lifting properly, and not trying subbornly to lift more than you can actually lift then the chances of this happening are quite slim.

    Now since I wasn't there I don't know what happened with this cat, it could just be one of those bad luck, dang it, moments. They happen on occassion. But this isn't something you see often in a gym. Or maybe I'm just lucky for the gym I've been in. *Shrugs*


    No. People become extreme homers the moment they don't hit the panic button every chance possible.



    Interesting...so where are these 'facts' that the Giants draft lineman well? As it looks to me 3 of their 5 starters, just like ours, didn't get drafted by them. They've drafted 2 starters for their team, same as us, in the same time frame and apparently their guys don't last any longer in the league, or are any more than the guys we've drafted for the most part.


    So where are all these supposed 'facts' I kept reading about being out there and thrown down about the Giants being able to know how to draft O-Lineman?


    The Cowboys aren't great at drafting O-Line. In fact they're quite average. They seem to find serviceable guys, for a few years for themselves or someone else, but not a lot of studs.

    Pretty much like the GMen apparently.

    terrible news this especially before the training camp.I wonder if the training staff are pushing the rookies too hard.

    The training staff aren't culpable for these types of injuries whatsoever. Pectoral tears are quite common within a professionally monitored weight room environment.

    I don't think they're neccesarily common but they happen from time to time, just sucks that he won't get a chance to show anything so we'll go into the draft next year still not knowing much about our depth since it's basically the same crew as last year.

    This. We are going to regret not drafting William Beatty big time. He's gonna turn into a hell of a player for the Giants.

    You know what? I don't recall, but that's irrelevant. These things happen all the time, especially in the presence of weight and strength training coaches.

    I could understand if Brewster tore the pec during a drill on the field, but IMO it's inexcusable for a player to tear his pectoral lifting weights. He was most likely lifting without properly warming up and/or using too much weight on the bench. Stupid players do stupid things!

    this

    it's pretty hard to hurt yourself lifting if you do it properly

    Brewster was probably trying to impress someone

    I say again... Top powerlifters tear pecs all the time.

    When these guys lift, yes, they're pushing the heaviest weights they can at their very limits. They aren't like the pansies you see screwing around at your local Gold's Gym.

    NFL players aren't top powerlifters

    Players shouldn't be maxing out at a specific exercise more than once a week. He was probably trying to push out one or two more forced reps with weight that was too heavy for him in the 1st place and he tore the pec
