Super Bowl in New York this year? Cushing not ready??

I agree with the words from tombstone movie in the video about Cushing on the other message board:

"Make no mistake.....it's not revenge he's aftuh, it's a reckoning"

That's why I'm surprised that the Texans didn't go after a couple of veteran ILBs. Maybe they will before training camp opens and after the teams cut some of their vets.

The most cited NFL ACL arthroscopic repair study analyzed the data for 31 RBs and WRs with 33 ACL injuries. Of the injured players, 21% (7 of 33 ACL injuries) never returned to play in another regular season NFL game. Of those that did return, most players returned to action 9 to 12 months (not to peak performance) after an ACL injury.

For those players who returned to NFL action following an ACL injury, performance fell by 1/3. A "power rating" was assigned for every player in every season, defined as a weighted sum of total yards and touchdowns, likely the most important statistics of RB and WR performance. The power ratings for the 3 seasons prior to ACL injury were compared to the power ratings for the 3 seasons following ACL injury.Power rating per game played decreased from 9.9 pre-injury to 6.5 post-injury. This decline in player production was statistically significant when compared to the 146 players in the uninjured control group.

Knee pain, stiffness, loss of strength, deconditioning and reduced proprioception (the sense of knowing where your leg is) may all be factors explaining the loss of production in players after an ACL injury. Keep in mind, bottom line, no ACL reconstruction technique perfectly recreates the complex anatomy and composition of a person's ACL before injury, the most critical factor in the inability for most to return to pre-injury performance level. A player's recovery such as Adrian Peterson still remains very much the outlier.

My daughter had her ACL replaced last year, by the Texans team doctor (or one of them). It was actually the second time she had it done as it was originally repaired 3 years prior.

According to the Doc, there had been improvements in the process which should increase success rates & help our athletes return to pre-injury form.

Of course, I thought he was just selling us a bill of goods. Man don't get paid unless we agree to re-do a procedure that just failed. However, when I saw AD go off in 2012, I started to believe there was some truth to what he told us.

Do you know of any improvements in reconstructive knee surgery?

Some improvements have been made in rehab protocols. However, due to the unique shape of the ACL (it is not simply a straight strip like most ligaments), multiple attachments, and multi-directional functions of this ligament, there has never been developed ANY technique that has been able to recreate it anatomically in any true semblance. And there within lies the obstacle.

Also keep in mind, not all ACLs are the same. They can be partial or purely isolated complete. Or as many times is the case involve numerous other structures such as the collateral ligament(s).......medial (MCL) and/or lateral (LCL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial and/or lateral meniscus (cartilage)............all these factor into the difficulty and length of recovery as well as the ultimate level of recovery. Even if it were an isolated ACL, AD's recovery still remains remarkable and an exception. Hope this answers your question and doesn't confuse you more.

I wonder if BrianCushing will be pushing himself extra hard, thinking he should be able to make a similar comeback.

The #1 reason in the study for setbacks was pushing rehab to beat the expected 9 to 12 month time period.
