    And this is why Mike Flanagan is a better center than Matt B

    http://www.jsonline.com/packer/news/nov05/371946.asp

    Flanagan suffered the [sports hernia] Week 1 against Detroit but it was mild. He popped it Oct. 3 in Carolina, underwent surgery two days later in Philadelphia and returned less than four weeks later to start against Cincinnati.

    "It really is a six-week injury," Flanagan said. "When things are going the way they are the easiest thing to do would be to say, 'All right, we'll see you guys in six weeks.' But it's something I wanted to do. At least I feel I'm important to this group."

    "Basically, it feels like I'm getting stabbed with a hot knife," he said.

    On Nov. 10, Flanagan lay on a table biting his cap and refusing to look when a physician jammed a needle into his pelvic area to inject a painkilling drug.

    "That was fun," he said. "I heard him say, 'That's bone.' It may have numbed it a little bit but it didn't go away, that's for sure. If I did have another one it would be maybe four weeks from now. Hopefully, by then, I'll be pretty much out of the woods.

    "There's a difference between playing with pain, which I'm doing, and being injured. If you're injured, you can't play. If you can play and it hurts like hell, (expletive) it. Get out there and play."

    Did he say guarantee my salary?

    Nuh uh.

    Yeah, I have often wondered why Birk did not get more grief ... I mean we all talk about being team players and such in here and he walked for no other reason than to be spiteful for not getting his contract guarunteed ... it least it very much looks that way. Birk should have played to start the season ... and then made his choice based on how he felt and how he was performing.

    the surgery he needed was for a torn labrum in his hip, which was causing the hernias. read a little before making a ridiculous topic like this

    Birk played hurt last year...it wasn't too much to ask them to guarantee his salary to play hurt...I think that the front office is the one that dropped the ball!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
