  1. I realize that you’re modus operandi is sarcasm but surely you understand the purpose of isolating a heavily weighted variable (such as QB), to determine whether the variables outside of the heavily weighted are of quality. Or maybe you don’t…. .
  2. what exact sentence or sentences in my post do you most disagree with?
  3. He has been “made” by his Allen choice, which you can never take away. But for the purpose of this thought study, imagine that he did not pick Allen. Imagine he had picked Rosen. Where would our fans rank him then? Likely quite low. Shows how 1 pick can make or break a career.
  4. I am the complete opposite. I genuinely enjoy the fact that Florio is not on the NFL’s payroll (proverbially or otherwise). I also think his law experience greatly enhances his reporting as it gives readers insight into contract negotiations and CBA negotiations and so forth, that no other reporter has. He also seems to refuse to play the quid-pro-quo agent leak game and calls it out when he sees it. Florio is the best reporter in all of sports, in my opinion.
  5. Where I am, NP’s must have a bachelors degree, pass nclex, get their RN, then get their masters degree, then have 500 hours of supervision and pass the national boards. On top of that, if the NP wants to work in a cardiologist office (like the example above), then they would need an additional certification for cardiology that carries an requirement of 2000 additional hours, then take another test, then join the American Board of Cardiovascular medicine. Some of the smartest people I know are NP’s and i’d trust them over some doctors at any moment. No specialized training? As said above, to be a cardiology NP you need 2,000+ hours of specialized cardiology training.
  6. We don’t think any less of Allen because of how poorly the 13 seconds were managed…
  7. Another funny (in my opinion) video from the account:
  8. Just watched this again on YouTube and had a good laugh. Its uncanny how similar some of the plays are.
  9. Happy it’s back in Rochester. Disappointed that it’s so few practices. I remember when there were 20+ practices at Fredonia available to the public.
  10. That is not even remotely true. Besides, i’m not talking about “liking” someone. I’m talking the nonsense like “she’s part of our family” and “I love her”. Uh, that’s weird.
  11. I am not her family. You are presumably not as well.
  12. I am not hurting, but I have prayed several times for her to get better. I find the odd demigod status that some on here have for the ownership team to be... well, odd.
  13. I was thoroughly unimpressed with the Bengals last year. Especially in the postseason. A lot of luck spun their way. They remind me more of the 2019 Jags (went to AFC Championship game) than a true contender.
  14. Is it possible that you’re thinking of a different poster? I’ve only created 10 threads in this forum, and they’ve been about Game Weather, Josh Allen hitting a home run, NFL Schedule makers giving Bills an advantage, Power Ranking, PFF and the KC game. I wouldn’t have guessed that anyone thought of me as negative before you wrote such.
  15. Same. This will be my last post in this thread as well. Especially considering that someone was kind enough to point out that a similar thread exists (albeit with less sources).
  16. I hope you're right. According to 3 different studies, the odds seem to be against what we both want.
  17. Neither do I. Tre White WILL be back. The question is how much of his ability will be back.
  18. Your sentiment seems to be that an opinion that is negative in nature can not be rooted in fact or reality and that the positive side of the possibility must be the correct answer. I guess we differ in that respect. I follow whichever way the evidence points me. Agreed. Thats sad.
  19. As do I. A previous poster mentioned their N=1 sample of their son playing high-school basketball after an ACL injury. Unfortunately, the NFL DB position puts a bit more strain on the ligament than high school athletics.
  20. I understand not reading a post that you're not interested in. I do not understand not reading the post, but then still commenting on it. The studies are from 2022, 2019 and 2017. All recent. Nothing old. All relevant today.
  21. This post may draw some knee-jerk reactions of anger, but please know that it wasn't written to make anyone upset. Unfortunately, the topic is naturally upsetting - We all love Tre White and want him to return to his typical dominant play. To that end, I've done some research on ACL injuries in NFL players. The common refrain from NFL fans is that ACL injuries are no longer the career-ender they once were, and I wanted to see if that was true. Unfortunately, research on players returning post ACL surgery is not optimistic, even in the modern era. One study, Return to Play and Decreased Performance After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction in National Football League Defensive Players published in the The American Journal of Sports Medicine (2017), shows that: After the season of surgery, athletes in the ACLR group who returned to play decreased to 57% games started and 2.38 ± 1.24 solo tackles per game, while their matched controls suffered no significant decreases. (link) And the result of the study indicated rather succinctly: Players who successfully returned were above-average NFL players before their injury but comparatively average after their return. Another study, this one published in 2022, titled Return to Play and Performance After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction in National Football League Players shows similar results. Published in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine, the results stated: Of the eligible players, only 28.5% (n = 59/207) remained in the league 3 years postinjury. Within the first 3 years postinjury, players played in fewer games (8.7 vs 13.7; P < .0001), started in fewer games (3.0 vs 8.3; P < .0001), had lower AVs (1.5 vs 4.3; P < .0001), and had decreased snap counts (259.0 vs 619.0; P < .0001) compared with preinjury. (link) The conclusion of the study is no better: The study findings indicated that NFL players are severely affected by ACL injury, with only 28.5% still active in the league 3 years after the injury. Running backs, defensive linemen, and linebackers performed the worst after injury. v Lastly, a 2019 study that examined ACL tears in Wide Receivers (I used this study because the WR position requires similar impact on the ACL). This study is titled Decreased Performance and Return to Play Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction in National Football League Wide Receivers. Published in The Arthroscopy Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation issue, the study found that: When we compared the tear group with the matched control cohort, players with ACL tears ended their careers on an average of 1.9 seasons earlier (2.2 vs 4.1 seasons, P < .001) and also played less than half the number of games (25.5 vs 56.6 games, P = .001), respectively. Those that RTP also saw decreased performance statistics in targets (353.6 vs 125.2 P < .001), receptions (208.0 vs 74.4, P = .001), receiving yards (2691.0 vs 987.9, P = .001), and touchdowns (17.4 vs 6.2, P = .002). (link) One potential good tidibt: "no significant differences were present between preinjury and postinjury in-game in all in-game statistics for the wide receiver" Overall Conclusion? Concern. There is a legitimate chance that Tre never returns to the level of play he showed in 2021 and prior, and there is a potential that his career will be shorter than we once thought.
