Default Re: Posey getting Healthy!

Well, for me (& I was the OP), I don't expect Posey to outplay somebody like Hopkins. I just know he is more promising than most if not all of our guys behind AJ & DH. Getting him healthy just gets me excited about DEPTH & multi-receiver formations.

In this way, we all can ask medical question concerning Texans' players health status. I assume you are very busy man being a doctor and I don't know if this is possible but it would be great if you can find time to do this.

By keeping in one thread about medical question, not only to ask Doc a question but we can use as our medical dictionary as NFL players injury happens to a similar area of body ie knee, ankle, foot, shoulder and etc.

As it is now, he gives us a lot of insight and information about injuries to the players that we can't get from any other sources. Besides, I think he has a pretty cool handle and avatar. I always thought he might be a surgeon and the handle was just a play on words. Just a guess.

I gained a new perspective on what women have to go through.. ouch!) and accused me of taking steroids. (Yes what Cushing tried to pass as a excuse... I actually went through) Not every doctor cuts with a knife and performs operations. CloakNNNDagger is a specialist and is a surgeon.. Him holding the handle of simply DOC would be undermining his real rank in his field.

It would be like calling a General, Sarg.

Plus, the handle CloackNNNdagger and that avatar are pretty badass.

Maybe Special Medical Adviser for TTC or TTC Special Medical Adviser would be more appropriate?
Samuraitexan,

I appreciate all the positive words by you and others. I try to visit this site regularly in order to "converse" with all the good fans and friends I've made here....and to relate injury information that might enhance the understanding of "what happened" and "what might be expected." I have never "turned away" anyone when they have approached me for opinions, advice, referrals for significant medical or surgical problems. Time-wise I am limited, and I believe that beginning a "general" medical THREAD may prove undoable. I do wish that there was some way to have a separate thread that could be sticky'ed for my more important injury posts, duplicate to where the post was to begin with. Our "search engine" is not terribly retrieval-specific or helpful in many cases.......and our "archive" is discarded after 1 year. Being able to key in a couple of identifying words (separately) at the top of each post placed in this sticky thread, such as "Deandre Hopkins" / "Concussion" would very possibly make injury information easier to retrieve. I do wish our search engine could be improved, but that may be an unfortunate limitation of the program. I'm not about to complain too much as I would never again want to deal with deal with the screwy limitations and quirks of the "official" HT website. Hookem has brought us all together here, and his efforts along with those all of the supporting Mods should never be overlooked.

You all can refer to me however you feel comfortable. I shall remain CloakNNNdagger...........with that little "Dark Side."

Try this Google search...

Start with this: site:www.texanstalk.com/forums/

Then add which word(s) your want to search for after it:

site:www.texanstalk.com/forums/ "Deandre Hopkins" concussion

Note 1) no spaces in the front site:www.texansta... part, 2) the space after the last /, and 3) the quotes which will return the exact phrase inside them.

So it will look like this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=site%3Awww.texa...%22+Concussion

or here's a ready made search for you to add your query at the end:

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=site%3Awww.texa...m%2Fforums%2F+

Just hit the space bar and type in your query.

Note in the results page you can use "Search Tools" to specify preset time periods ( past hour, past 24 hours, past week, month, year) or you can enter a custom date range to search.

After specifying a time period, you can then Sort by relevance or Sort by date.

Not perfect, but usable imo.

Wishful thinking on your part. If he was some stud they felt they could rely on they wouldnt have gone crazy looking for receivers. They never had strong confidence in him last season either. All of this crazy optimism you guys have is really no different then the hype you guys kept pushing on guys like Molden. Posey has not ever proven anything at this point. If he was on the Jags and some guy from their boards came over here hyping his potential up for the season he would get laughed off of this board.

They could be bragging about the potential of Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, & Wes Welker & we'd still laugh at them because of their QB.

I agree it's mostly optimism for Posey's potential but nothing's wrong with that. It's the same as the excitement we share for Hopkins. Neither has proven anything but we like what we see so far.

It's all we can do right now.

No the medical issues and concern are fact and well documented. Everything else you said is just blather.

PS - you are barking up the wrong tree trying to "you guys" me. The only thing I said was your argument that Posey didn't show anything caused them to draft Hopkins was a ridiculous argument when Posey's career was in jeopardy.

Exactly. I remember him discussing his suspension after the 2012 draft on the radio. He sold a ring or some other memorabilia to help his mom pay her rent or something like that. If that's true, it adds to his character, not subtracts from it IMO. NCAA can shove their moronic rules up their ass.

My wife went to Ohio State, and I was very happy when we drafted him since I probably saw most of his games for OSU.

You are welcome. I really appreciate your medical insights which helped me understand better about severity of player/s injuries. Just a thought to make it easier for all of us to search football injury in general.

BTW, good info Playoffs! This kind of info helps for an old man like myself that is not up to current technology

MSR!

Is it possible to sticky info this into the FAQ section?
this is much too useful to be buried in a thread about Posey's injury that may possibly be forgotten once the season starts.


Now I understand why you have your own set of smilies and you can find all those apropos picts & gifs.

admits to no small amount of envy
