Regardless of your philosiphical views, the man is sadly headed in a bad direction.

Getting re-injured or getting re-injured.

I don't think anyone is realistically expecting him to stay healthy for more than a game or two.



I believe that is the point I made a few posts ago.

like CRA said. Either he can play on his knee, or he cannot.

By all accounts, since he hit the field he has been running around like a kid trying to make the team. Missed a sack, then got in on the tackle. On the same play. So you folks don't mind if I take the HE'S BACK approach. He is our most athletic, and fastest LB. If he is back, let the mfer play.

Until he is actually done. I am taking the approach that he is a member of this team. And that only helps us.

And if he can't, we may as well find out now. I don't understand all this "meaningless game" crap. If nothing else, we need to winnow out the wheat from the chaff...and, unfortunately, TD is tops on the list (imo) to see if all parties involved are just fooling ourselves regarding his injury and the ability to play football. If he is physically ready to play, let's see what he has.

Honestly I believe he has to play to prove he is worth keeping on the 53 man roster. He is cleared to play just before cuts start happening. This is no coincidence.

every time I see him I cut a route I will get chills...flashbacks of him clenching his leg. I don't have a good feeling about this either but if he does come back it will be amazing.

Play him now. Who cares. Test his knee out.
If something happens now, it's going to happen later anyway. If its not, it's not.

If he's healed, he'll heal. What's the point of having him for one game of the regular season if his knee is ready to go out Sun. Not saying it will, but get the point.

It's like getting strapped into a roller coaster. Once the harness goes down, there is no turning back and whatever is going to happen is going to happen.
I hate to be flippant, but que sera, sera.

Me too Ivan.

Fear and regret. One is of the future, one is of the past.
Neither should effect Davis.
Don't live your past twice in regret and don't live your future twice in fear, it is a waste of energy.
Make a decision and bull ahead.
TD's future will be TD's future and there is nothing he or we can do about it.

I, for one, will be pulling for him like he was a family member.

I say we play him the first quarter, then he comes in on situational downs (sparingly, of course) as long as the starting D is out there. Ease him in. If he gets hurt, he gets hurt. If he gets hurt in the preseason, it really isn't a loss since we know Kuechly and Anderson can ball for days.

Like others have said, if he's going to get hurt he's going to get hurt. Can't keep him on the bench forever. I think he's in a much better position now than he was going into Green Bay with rehab, OTAs, training camp and more time. His legs look thicker than the toothpicks we saw from the pictures at that Panthers kickball game. All and all, I just feel good about TD and want to believe that he'll play, if not start, all 16 for us. Call me niave or a homer, but you've got to have faith in the players.

TD's always had some skinny ass legs. That's one of the things I didn't like about the DT from Penn State (his name escapes me) in this year's draft. Skinny legs just seem like an injury waiting to happen.

It would be sweet though if TD could somehow beat the odds.
