Good thing it wasn't an artificial turf field or that could have been bad....
That's bad. Career-ending bad.
To state the obvious: I really hope not.
He had a bad injury in college. Was a 6th round draft pick, ended up being far better than Barkley.
If not for injury issues, Chubb is most certainly not far better than Barkley. Or even better.
He was actually a 2nd round pick, but he did suffer a bad knee injury in college.
Damn, one of my favorite players to watch. fast at 100m and very good at shot put too.
The Cleveland Browns are going to. Cleveland Brown. Same leg as his college surgery and I'm not sure he comes back. Sad to see.
Google Napolean McCallum
This really sucks, a legit cool dude. Do think this will be the career and i hate that,'
Does anyone feel like its getting hard to watch your favorite players just get carted off like a war zone? Maybe the numbers are no different this year as opposed to another, but it seems like critical players are dropping like flies this year. My Lions were down to 3rd safety by 2nd quarter. Top offensive player hurt. Best lineman out.
Bigger and faster every year, but a knee is a knee, and a brain is a brain. I dont see how you could ever limit speed, but I believe someday the NFL will cap lineman/linebacker weight. Its easy and will save some injuries. Low hanging fruit. 6'-8" 380 falling on people is not good. And unhealthy to boot.
There is less wrap up tackling these days or more taking players down by collisions, hence more head injuries and knee injuries. Must be tough knowing on any play someone can dive into the side of your knee and rip it to shreds if you happen to be planted at that time.
This game was never meant to be played by guys this big and strong and fast. Nobody 225 pounds with 4.5 speed should be running into anyone.
For all the doubters, remember the NFL cracked down hard on all the players that were torpedoing people head first, targeting peoples heads. That first year players fought back hard, saying its impossible to tackle someone without your head and all this crap. Said the game would be boring. Turns out, they just re-learned to tackle again (sort of). I like rule changes that dont mess with fabric of the game. Players are getting bigger but also plumping up to unhealthy weights. Limit the weight of certain positions. Make goalie pads in hockey smaller. Easy peazy and gets back to the fabric of the game not away from it.
Maybe only tackle QBs waist up? What else?
For his production, Barkley was picked too high; he hasn't lived up to it. He also has cost far more than his production warrants. Plenty of lower picks that have been just as effective and have cost less (I'm thinking of someone like Aaron Jones).
Never pick a RB with the #2 overall pick.
quite agree - a good offensive line will make many runners into productive runners with the bonus they protect qb as well
As a UGA fan, I saw his first leg injury when he was in college and do not care to see one again on him. It was a bit of a miracle he came back from the first one much less came back to play as well as he has. DGD
Chubb was a 2nd round draft pick.
They need to do something to minimize the high speed collisions. Safeties break up passes by levelling the receiver, not by playing the ball. And surprisingly people get hurt! I'd like to see tackling involve using the arms. Probably would lead to more scoring, but maybe that is not a bad thing.
