And some of you are saying that his shoulder injury might affect his play? It's his non throwing shoulder for crying out loud!!! We can just inject his shoulder with some anti-pain medication and he should be good to go. It would be a horrible mistake to go with delhomme. Stick with yates. He has been the plan all along.
Yeah.. just inject it... then he gets sacked again by another 300 lb nose tackle landing on him and smashing him and his injured shoulder into the turf just like against the Titans. Same way Leinart was injured.
Even an injury on a non throwing shoulder is going to effect him. The other arm is used for balance during the throwing motion. Unless you are telling me he is not going to get sacked all game, I think chances are we will see Delhomme.
Don't you think they will be after that shoulder when pass rushing? I know I would be especially after what he did to them last time.
