Quote:
One year ago, on the opening Monday night matchup between the Miami Dolphins and New England, Patriots Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins tore his right anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Not only did Mankins finish the Monday night game, he finished the season, becoming one of the rare, if not the only, players to have played an entire 16-game season with a torn ACL.

Mankins' problems only multiplied in the playoffs. In the Patriots' postseason win over the Denver Broncos, Mankins tore the medial collateral ligament in his left knee, leading him to play the Super Bowl against the New York Giants with torn ligaments in each knee.

But when Mankins goes up against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, it will be six months since he underwent surgery on his torn ACL and one year since he suffered the injury.

That explains a slightly off year for him, but Goddam is he a hard man.

This is the kind of thing that turns a great player into a legend.

I know i say a lot of negative things about Mankins, specifically about his contract. But I have and never will question his effort.

Wow. I was more than a little hard on him but this changes everything.

Patriots have always raved about his toughness but that is on a whole other level.

I have been a big critic of his reputation as top guard but I tip my hat to him, he is a freaking warrior. Not sure how smart of a decision that was for his health going forward though.
