I always felt that guys wearing casts had somewhat of an advantage rather than a disadvantage because as you say they could just pound you with it.


I would think it would be quite dangerous for the other players around actually. Casts can hurt like hell.

I remember playing with a gigantic metal knee brace after I busted my acl/mcl several years ago when I was freshman in hs. After a few plays of me cracking some fools, they made me cover it up.

Why didn't he just say, "I'm trying to Fujita-proof it..."

supposedly they have fabricated some prototype graphite cast that smitty can wear over his forearm to prevent damage from a shot like he took in the giants game.

i would like to see him pop that safety in the mouth with it as he cruises into the endzone.

this giants game could be epic for smitty, he has sooo much ammunition to be pissed about these guys, its unbelievable.


That is some great news,i had not heard about a cast of that nature.
I hope it helps him because i have a concern about the breaks even thought they are were in different places.

Personally it was refreshing in a way to hear Gregg Williams plans for Favre and Warner. It got a little dirty with Favre but it seems like nobody wants to admit to the violent nature of football anymore. Part of the game is hitting guys(legally) until they just want to stop playing.

The game is getting more and more refined each year which is good for the health of the players. No job should give you a life of pain like many of these guys will have to endure.


Everyone should watch the "cult" classic "Rollerball" it is a dee lite! And you thought Sonny was a baadast.

"He said he hopes opposing players don't target his arm, but added "every so often you come up on a chump."


Get 'em, Steve. :D

Smitty will be fine. It's Laetitia that needs to be taken care of. Dump that fool Zod and come here to a real man.
