  1. Googled "recovery time for ligament damage in ankle" and got this: After 6 -10 weeks any boots or casts are usually replaced by an ankle brace. Over the next 6 weeks you may be able to increase your activity level while wearing the brace. Be sure and discuss any return to work with your surgeon. Most patients make a good recovery from ankle ligament repair. https://www.nuffieldhealth.com/treatments/ankle-ligament-repair

  3. Samuel getting MRI and other pc notes

    Track record aside, I'd say he's more unlucky. Just a freak play where any other person in the situation would have likely suffered a similar fate.
  4. Marty was on WFNZ this morning and mentioned that he will likely replace Kelvin's spot on the 53 with a wideout, but hasn't made the call yet. Much has been made and joked about Bersin and Philly being available, but are there any free agent options out there that might be good to bring in? Not suggesting that there is an upgrade to KB out there, but potentially we can find a guy that can provide good depth or veteran presence. Some "names" I saw among others was Vincent Jackson, Victor Cruise, Dorial Green-Beckham, etc. I'd opt for a possession type guy in case Devin goes down. Any names that I missed that we should consider bringing in?
  5. That's not true -- in every single pre game interview with Fox this week, the entire Bucs defense said that the priority was to not let McCaffrey beat them or get anything extra. They said this on the broadcast about 5 times. CMC is 1B on team's scouting reports right behind Cam.
  6. Kaelin Clay is a Panther again.

    Happy Clay is back on the roster. Thought he had a nice preseason. Hopefully he can be a vertical threat for the offense
  7. USA U17 World Cup

    Only reason some of those guys (like Adams & Erik Palmer Brown) might not get a call is due to MLS playoffs.
  8. USA U17 World Cup

    I agree. If McKennie is the heir apparent to Michael Bradley in that 6 or 8 role then I'd like to see him play at that level ASAP. I'd completely understand not calling up Pulisic for these friendlies, but it would be fun to watch those two play together in the middle of the field. Miazga should be called up as well as Cameron Carter-Vickers to get a CAP in central defense. Interested to see what goalkeepers get called up. Since we are playing in Europe are we going to try and call in more Europe based guys? Not sure what young goalies are currently in Europe. Pretty sure William Yarbough and Jonathan Klinsman make up the entire list.
  9. USA U17 World Cup

    Are most of you like me in that you're still depressed after the USMNT failed to qualify for the World Cup? Are you frantically searching for something to get you excited about US Soccer again? Well look no further than the USA U17 World Cup team! The youngsters played in the round of 16 today at the U17 World cup in India and absolutely dismantled Paraguay 5-0. Dominance. It was so refreshing to watch American players (not including Pulisic) actually playing like they gave a sh*t. On Saturday, the kids play either England or Japan in the Quarters. Nice to know we have legit talent coming up in the pipeline. Young players to watch are Josh Sargent and Tim Weah. Both kids are 17 and play for the developmental clubs of Werder Bremen and PSG respectively. Weah had a hat trick today. The future is bright!
  10. Why would we demote anyone? Currently have 4 wideouts on the roster. Can carry five, just cut one of the safeties. Also why in the hell would we want to trade Samuel?? Give them a 5th or 6th rounder and call it a day.
  11. World Cup Qualifiers

    I've been just so sad over the past 48 hours. It's just embarrassing that our country won't be represented on one of the world's greatest sporting spectacles. Regardless of our country's skill level in the sport compared to other nations in Europe, South America, etc, there is still ZERO reason for the United States to not comfortably qualify every single time given what region we play in. There are obviously serious issues beneath the surface and I hope that the Federation makes drastic changes to restructure the entire system, but it's not an overnight fix. There are some things that can happen short term though to begin getting this on the right track. Bruce Arena needs to be replaced and most of the players (basically everyone, but Pulisic) should be either reevaluated or phased out. You can certainly make arguments for guys like John Brooks, Deandre Yedlin, Jordan Morris and Bobby Wood to stick around, but Tim Howard, Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore, Omar Gonzalez, Matt Besler, etc all can be moved on from. It's time for us to dedicate our time to truly developing the next generation to take the reigns and the only way to do that is to play younger guys and rebuild the culture. Need to replace Arena with a coach that wants to do that. That should be in effect starting with the January camp in 2018. After that, Sunil Gulati and other upper level executives need to be replaced with new and fresh leadership. Guys willing to roll up their sleeves and truly make change. This is easier said than done, but the Gulati regime has gone on long enough without any substantial changes to progress the sport further from a worldwide perspective. It's going to be a process, but due to Tuesday night's travesty of a match, we have been given an extra year before the 2022 World Cup. Use it to your advantage so that we can really begin to make progress.
  12. Has Worley Regressed?

    I think Worley will be fine. He can improve in pass coverage, but he's already above average in run support from the Corner position imo.
  13. Nic Batum out for season?

    Damn that is a big blow for Charlotte. Whether you think he's worth the contract or not, Nic is easily this team's second best playmaker and he opens up a lot of space for Kemba to move w/o the ball. He would have been beneficial for Dwight as well. Will be hard to replace. That being said, we will definitely get to see a lot of Monk now.
  14. WR Depth Chart

    Kerley plays for the Jets unfortunately. I was hoping we'd take a look when he got waived during the preseason. Jets were ahead of us on waiver wire anyway
  15. Lamb had 17 points off the bench which was great to see. He and Monk were especially fun to watch running around on the wings together. If Frank can become more consistent, that second unit could have a ton of fire power
