Stafford practiced Monday without a bandage on his left hand, Twentyman reported.


Good to hear. It didn't look too bad when he was on the sideline, but it looked like a sprain--this isn't nearly as bad.

Yep, and it was on his non-throwing hand this time. He was at open practice without anything on it. He's good to go. Very Happy

I view any injury to Stafford as a bad omen.

Anything with Stafford going to the sidelines because he is hurt makes me cringe. Glad he can make week 1 though.

I definitely had a panic attack when he limped off the field during week 1 last year (leg cramp). That was not a fun moment.

Seriously will you stop. The Packers would suck without Rodgers, the Patriots would suck without Brady, the Giants would suck without Manning, the Cowboys would suck without Romo. You notice the trend? The QB is the most important person in the field and when you lose that player, you lose games. The Texans may be the only example of a team that had succes without their starting QB.

The Colts did suck without Manning.

Crazy how that works.

Cassel and Flynn are good QB's. Eli hasn't been hurt IIRC, but they sure as hell wouldn't have won a Super Bowl without him.

oh so your assuming... flynn cant beat out a what 5th rd rook... and cassel and good should never be in the same sentence. was ther a point to this? like ive said trends and i dont like em and will not build my team that way. and thats the feel i get

Flynn got beat out by a 3rd round rookie with 1st round talent and 5th round size (reason why he got drafted late). Cassel got screwed in Haley's system.

You don't like trends? Teams are built based on trends, get over it.
