Something that has been overlooked that I hope Gettleman notices.

Never thought of that before but thanks you ruined the mascot for me. This gonna hunt me for the rest of my time as a Panthers fan until we win one.


I find it more amusing that we're a black cat team that could've had a qb named Luck, who instead ended up going to a team with a horseshoe logo. You can't write that kind of coincidence.

I heard Maurice Smith, President of the Players Union, on the radio yesterday. He claimed there were 4500 seperate injuries last year. With only 1800 players. So injuries are a part of the game.

Shlerith, or whatever his name is. Claims you can play hurt, but it is difficult to play with injuries.

Being injury free is a myth. Getting healthy at the end of the year is how you make your run. So if you are in the hunt you play. If you can that is.

Certainly interesting. Limited injuries are without a doubt a major reason for success. It would surprise me if 2008's record wasn't in a large part due to few key players getting hurt.

What you'd need to do is compare those numbers to other teams with as similar win paths to ours as possible in those years. That way you could limit the noise from the "strategic" IR's previously mentioned.

Predictions for the number of players that end up on IR by the end of the year?  I'm going with double digits.

Some of it was just strategy. Remember there were years when we were out of playoff contention fairly early and Hurney's strategy was to IR guys with sometimes minor injuries so he could get a look at some new players.

For that reason, the numbers are a bit deceiving.

 

Exactly. We pulled the IR trick to keep Tauren Poole last year and have done the same to Kugbila this year.

If we are above .500 at the halfway point, single digits. If we have a losing record that IR will look like a commuter train at rush hour.

Part of it is the fact that minor injuries late in the season would likely heal up by January and if that is the case then you're more likely to stay off the injured reserve list if the team has a chance of making the playoffs

Panthers haven't had much incentive to keep guys off the list the past few years

Worth mentioning, the Panthers Front Office has IR'ed players to create excuses for years now.

How did you figure that out? i would be interested in looking at other teams to see. i wonder if we just think we have the injury bug because we watch this team like a hawk. And other teams have as much but we just do care to pay attention.

anyone have figures for league-wide averages? that'd be the most useful context IMO

Don't be following yourself, we all know the real reason for this IR nonsense is because JR had a little fun with dr. Andrews wife... *hint hint wink wink* ;)

 

He prefers Morgan Fogarty.

I tried to find some solid data on the entire league a couple of years ago and didn't come up with much.

 

Every team has to have this data. I can't imagine otherwise. So once the data is available it is a simple exercise to see if your team has a statistically significant higher injury rate. If you discover it does, then you begin the process of trying to identify root causes.

 

But there is no doubt that we have used IR as a way to retain rights to more than 53 players.
