Default Spencer done for the season

Rookie Charles Spencer, a third-round choice who won the starting job in training camp, suffered a fractured left tibia in the third quarter of Sunday's loss at Indianapolis and will be placed on injured reserve, a move that prematurely ends his debut campaign. The injury occurred about six minutes into the third quarter on a running play on which tailback Ron Dayne gained no yards.

"It's really sad," said coach Gary Kubiak. "The kid's going to be a great player. He needed this year. Now he's going to have to sit back and watch."

I was at the game and made a point to watch Spencer and I thought he did a very good job. Or at least when I was watching him he did. This is going to hurt his development which really sucks for us.

Are you hating or is that an observation you have made by watching Pitt games, Texans preseason and our first two regular season games.

This is probably the worst news of the entire season. I like Carr, but I'd rather see him get knocked out of the season than Spencer. As Kubiak said, he needed a season to be great and we will be a fat rookie next year and have to start all over.

(He has a tendency to put on too much weight in the off season and he can't even workout for weeks on end.)

His injury is much worse than the loss.

Well, gee, I wonder if cutting Seth Wand was a good idea? I guess Winston is gonna get to play after all, unless we're going to move Pitts to LT once again.

Spencer can still learn a lot by paying attention the rest of this year, and it appears he has the drive to do so. His physical skills were good in the short time he was playing, but there were times where it looked like the left side of the line wasn't adjusting to the defensive sets correctly.

So although he won't be getting the PT he'll still be improved in some aspects of the game at the start of next year, IMO.

Default Trying To Find the Silver Lining

I've always understood that most linemen need a year sitting on the bench and learning the game, and Kubiak's system is not a paint-by-numbers routine. So, in a weird twist, I think this could actually help Spencer to be a better player. I am not worried about the physical end. Spencer is an aggressive player and will work off any weight he gains.

Get well soon Big Spence we will miss you! This really sucks for this team....it seems like we are jinks in this position!!!! We just can't seem to win. Well, it seems Salaam got the startin' role, hope he will help! Now, how about Flannagan? YIKES! I feel sorry for Carr, he can't seem to get a break, no wonder he looks kinda shell shock .

I just read a short article in the Chronic from "The General" (jeez I hate that stupid nickname) and he's saying Salaam starts and Winston backs him up. No mention of bringing back Wand at all.

I think they have to do some kind of roster move. Weigert isn't looking good, and his durability can be questioned. If Salaam and Winston end up playing, then what do we have for back-up?

If they don't make a strong roster move I think it indicates they are playing the season for the future and are sacrificing "learning to win" this season to build that future.

Spencer looked terrific before he went down and may have been the story of the game for us in a positive manner. Weigert needs to be let loose and bring back Wand in my opinion. Weigert or the TE on the right side have been the culprits of to many sacks to date or at least those that DC felt the pain from.

Get well big Spence.

Losing Flanagan and Spencer is going to hurt us. Our line has almost 0 depth right now. They need to bring somebody in.

This is very frustrating and discouraging, and all I can think of is that it would
be the perfect opportunity for that tape that Rome loves to play again and
again about Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan where the latter does the erie "why...why ?" thing.
Easily the last guy we would want to lose on the OLine, and one of the last 2
or 3 on the whole team, given the critical nature of LT and our need to finally
develope somebody to play over there.
Don't be surprised to see Iron Man Chester at LT before the season ends.

If I was heavy enough I would play LT as a walk on like Invinceable. Frankly though I ain't that heavy enough...245 won't cut it on the OL.

I could give 1 year at LB though purely on heart and I still am in shape

Well, let's see. If I gain about 180 lbs. in the next week or two, then I'd only need to grow about 9 inches in height AND THEN I'M THERE MAN, I'LL PLAY LT FOR US!!!
