But how cursed are we? Collins, Finley, Jolly, and Franklin. Its more than the rest of the NFL combined for the last five years. Not sure about it but it sure seems like it.


I wouldn't really say we're cursed, but we're in a rut. That being said, our medical staff is notoriously conservative with their injury timelines and quite frankly I don't blame them. We've seen players come back too early from injuries, and end up re-injuring them. Especially in the case of hamstrings.

That being said, I think this needs to be part of the testing they do at the combine. They need to test for these issues that guys like Franklin and Terrence Murphy suffer from. I mean, in the NBA we saw Isaiah Austin get essentially yanked from his dream because of a genetic defect. Does anyone know what kind of testing outside of the basic tests they do at the combine?

I guess still seems crazy though. We still have Collins I think we have another ring. Can't prove it, but its what I believe.

Jonathan is still connected to the Pack! I was browsing the Packer website this afternoon and it appears he is now working for packers.com. He has a video interview with D. Jones up there right now. Smile
