His elbow didn't look like that either. That was a pretty extreme case. I had it in my elbow about 15 years ago while during construction and worked through it swinging a hammer every day. It sucks but you can certainly work through it. Yeah, it probably hurt like hell but my god, how much did it hurt to stand on the sidelines and watch Webb implode in front of the world.
I'm excited about this team. Young and played hard this year. Better attitude. We just need a couple more pieces. I think we're close. Skol.
Looking thru some mock drafts, no one has more than 1 receiver going before us in the draft. There may not be many teams looking at wideouts which will benefit us greatly in this draft. I hate taking WRs in the first round unless the rest of the team is filled out but this year I think it is by far our biggest weakness.
I would like to see us work out a contract with Harvin and also add a wr during free agency. Then use the draft to grab a middle linebacker, defensive tackle, wideout and cornerback in whatever order fit.
I am already excited for 2013 and the offseason.
The limiting portion of the injury was a deep contusion to the triceps. Contusion is a fancy word for bruise. A bruise doesn't sound that bad but in this case it is significant. A blood vessel was ruptued and bled perhaps into and around the soft tissues of the triceps muscle in the back of the arm. Blood that escapes the vessels is very irritating to the surrounding tissues causing a significant inflammatory response and swelling. Blood in the soft tissues can take up to 30 days to resolve.
Zulgad said Ponder's arm looked black and blue to the elbow. He also said that Ponder needed help to put his shirt on.
I saw Ponder trying to throw pregame at Lamblow. He could only throw about 5 yards and couldn't fully extend his elbow.
Yes, Ponder could have played. The results wouldn't have been any different.
2012 exceeded expectation for a rebuilding year and leaves me with a lot of hope for the future. A lot of questions were answered and there are a few less holes to fill in the roster.
I usually compile a list of players I would like to see gone or upgraded for next season, and decided to post it this year. The list is a little shorter this year than last but some on the list were also there last year.
I realize we can't get rid of or upgrade all these players at the same time, but this is my list.
Please post your list and we can discuss their pros and cons.
