Mitch Morse in concussion protocol

Sorry man, I have -way- more important things to be concerned about.

 

If he ends up with another concussion and retires, then he retires.

 

Nothing I or anyone else here can do about it.

 

That's fine, I also have more important things to deal with.  Just as long as you realize Morse retiring after another concussion is a real possibility.

I'm -very- concerned about those who were very concerned.

 

 

OFFICIALLY Officially Concerned! (tm)

 

It's my party and I'll party if I want to...:beer:

Well aware of the possibility. Thanks.

  Obviously he'll be released from protocol soon.  The red jersey will remain on him until the Jets game. The problem is with Mitch we're all walking on egg shells. Other teams know one good slap to the helmet might retire him.  If anyone in the NFL deserves a special "Kelso" helmet its Morse, not AB. He's not playing a full season, in fact if he plays 8 games it will be a miracle. 

 

Yup.  I'm not counting on Mitch Morse to help this football team win games, and neither should anyone else.  It seems to me to be a foregone conclusion he'll be sidelined again, sooner rather than later.

 

Chalk this one up to taking a risk that probably won't pan out.  I'm just glad Beane got other guys in like Feliciano, Long, and now Bates who have gotten a lot of reps at C during camp.

You do your due diligence, make the best decision you think you can, and cover your bases as best you can.  Not much else you can do.

If he does go down again I feel pretty good about Feliciano taking over. He seems to be pretty good at C if needed.

Well, the Bills do seem to have a million guys who can play C, unlike years past.

 

How effectively they can play when the games start FOR REAL is another matter. 🙄

I think this combined with putting better players NEXT to the Center also helps.....

So, same with Cole Beasley.

 

They did the best this could with what’s out there and have plan B, C and if they have to D.  D by the way is The guy who we plan A last year... so there is that.

 

calcilated risk taking is part of the process.

And the teams that make the most best decisions over time demonstrate that with playoff wins.

His injury history:

  • 2015: concussion Week 12, missed one game
  • 2015: concussion Week 17, missed playoffs
  • 2017: foot sprain Week 2, missed 5 games
  • 2017: re-aggravation foot sprain in Week 13, placed on IR, missed 5 games
  • 2018: concussion Week 6, missed 5 games

 

Everyone and I mean everyone (including their dog) is worried about Mitch's condition.

 

 

I'm still holding on to the slim chance that they considered keeping him out of serious contact play until the start of the season as a precaution.

My only flimsy evidence is, they went ahead and took care of the core muscle maintenance and then as soon as the pads come on.............well it seems

that next week after preseason game #3 he will (just in time) start taking snaps with Josh full time to begin the season.

 

I know it's a long shot but I have thought of the possibility.

Oh wait, this IS your party so you can party instead of crying.  It's your choice!

On the other hand, I read 31 pages of posts about a player’s health just so I can post that I don’t care about trivial little sports things that are outside my ability to control.

In fairness, his response was a response to my "cancel the retirement party" post.

 

Way too much hysteria man.

OK. I get it then. I’m just amused by the irony of people signing up for some kind of forum and then taking the time to remind us that this is, indeed, a trivial pursuit.

This is where I’m at.  Any more than 8 games from Morse and I’m happy.   Just assuming our line is:

 

Dawkins - Spain - Feliciano - Long - Ford

 

...until I see otherwise.  

 

Good news is that Feliciano looks pretty decent at C. 

 

 

I think Ty is going to start at RT.  And Ford at RG.

Actually, I’d like a consensus of whether or not to lock it. If he sustains another one, that’ll be a new topic. This one’s beat. 

 

Lock? Yes or No?
