Excellent news. Rolling Eyes This season is almost as disappointing as 2008.

i think this season is way more disappointing- only silver lining is Megatron's pre-suit of Rice's record

Wow, we sure know how to pick em. I get that injuries happen, but there is no reason we should deal with so many injuries to important players every year. Our whole passing defense and offense has been decimated this year.

Only the Lions have this kind of luck.

Brace yourselves, another WR in the draft is coming.

Drafting Broyles was brilliant.....for about 2-3 games. It's not Mayhew's fault that these injury-riddled collegiate players he drafts keep getting hurt in the pros.

This just in: Broyles tore his other ACL, NOT the one he injured in college.

So we can throw this argument out: his "injury history" had nothing to do what happened on Sunday. It's just a violent sport.

No we can't. My statement stands, drafting him was brilliant......for 2-3 games. Looks dumb as hell again, just as the moment his name was called.

You're right, we shouldn't draft/sign/trade for anybody because they might become injured.

It would take a genius to decipher it.

Broyles is out for the year because of a knee injury.
Prior to the draft he had zero issues with this newly injured knee.
Mayhew should have known after 2-3 games he would injure this knee!

Tell me if that is about right?

You criticized the Broyles pick because he got hurt, and his new injury was unrelated to his injury in college. Players get hurt frequently. Nnivolcm's comment is valid: if a pick or trade is bad because the player sustains a new injury, you should be against acquiring any player.

When you're unreasonably negative for an extended period of time, people eventually decide to call it out.

Agreed. Might as well forfeit all of our picks, really.

Sorry my friend I have to disagree.

Players get injured. It happens. Any player drafted can suffer an injury it's just bad luck.

We all know as an ex-Sooner I love Broyles. He is a fantastic talent. He had one injury of note at Oklahoma and this is simply unfortunate. I don't think I'm being a homer but I might be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.

I don't think it was dumb to draft him and I don't think it looks dumb now.

As a fan I have had serious concerns about the field at Ford Field. The team as a whole seems to suffer far more knee injuries than others and the last time I checked it seems to be consistent with other teams that play indoors.

In the two Linsgate games we say Mark Clayton and Jamal Charles shred their knees. I'm not sure of others but I remember those two since we were there. Definitely is something they should look at.

Broyles being damaged goods was just one of the many reasons I criticized the selection, you just plucked this one statement in an attempt to gain support here.

Mayhew's continued lust for WRs has us running around in circles chasing our tails. We continue to address the singular need, while leaving other areas of our team in a constant state of despair.

It was, and always will be a stupid arse selection, just like drafting Titus.
