This post points out that most of the folks giving Mr. TD crap are weaponless.
He stated an opinion, and yet the blind love for the team/man/hype and hope for the season blind or in more related terms unarm so many others.
Naturally we all hope that he can come in and play a full season, but with that aside anyone who says that there is not a high liklihood that he will be injured again has their head in their buttocks. As great as he is, if he is reduced to a situational/rotation player out of fear of injury to him, he becomes as much of a liability to the team as as asset. Personally i would prefer an average LB out there every snap rather than a GREAT one who only plays 10 snaps a game and spends the rest of the game on the sidelines.
Can the average person come back from these surgeries and recover...sure! Can an NFL player whom has had these injuries come back to a game where they are constantly crashing and wrestling 250lbs plus men, getting fallen upon, hit, etc etc come back and play? Well...maybe some, but in my simple and humble opinion its just one more roster spot that could otherwise be open for someone who can be on the field more consistantly.
great part is we have Luke, Beason, Anderson ready to play every snap.....so that leaves Davis as a situational player and there are few better for that than Davis if he can stay healthy for situational work. Signing Luke was a great thing for Carolina.....and Davis.
so the situation is great for Davis to attempt the comeback. If he was put in a role where he would have to play every down....I wouldn't like his chances.
