Ok...so this argument is getting really old really fast.

Let's take an injury-prone, aging, has-been RB and (in order to make a point) compare his injury to a Pro Bowl, in-the-middle-of-his-prime WR who missed a few games last year with an injury.

Yes, AJ currently has a tweaked groin too, but the difference is in their production...not to mention their age. AJ is young and still has time to prove that his injuries aren't a common occurance. Green....not so much. Even after missing seven game last year, AJ was still one of the best WRs in the game last year when he did play...and obviously was a differnce-maker. Green played "decent" when he wasn't injured (if you can remember back that far), but no where near AJ's play.

Aaaaahman Green hasn't been able to avoid injuries or play up to his potential since Brett Favre first thought about retirement. And yes I realize that Green was once a Pro Bowler as well, but what does that matter? So was Boselli...remember how that worked out? I'm sorry, but anyone that tries to compare AJ's injuries with Green's reoccuring injuries are grasping for excuses IMO. If AJ has the same injury problem for the next 4-5 years....THEN come talk to me and you will have a valid point.

AJ however is only 27 and judging by past WRs hasn't even seen his prime years yet and could conceivably give us 10 more years of great WR play if he takes care of his body.
I have been watching football since the late 70's, I know about the shelf life of a running back ( approx. 4 years), I was just being sarcastic, thanks for your info.

I won't even highlight it. Just don't talk about AJ like that. He won't be injury prone. He won't be injury prone.
