Default What no one is saying about Ryans.......

I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I have seen little mention of the odds of Ryan returning to form is at all. Everything I've seen about achilles leads me to believe that we won't get Ryan at his 2006 or 2010 level. We still got a lot of season left, but just wondering how many are in denial.

This begs the question, what to do about it. Are we now looking at needing to draft his replacement, find someone in free agency, or move someone up.

I know Cloak and Dagger gave a little info on rehab and such, but stats I read recently led me to believe that this more time than not is a career ender. I hate saying that but it is what it is.

So what does everyone think, how do we handle this just in case next season:

1. Sharpton
2. Trade/Free Agency (In the off season)
3. Draft (Sure would have been nice to not have any new holes, would have like to have seen round 1-3 for defense)

I'm thinking we'll wait till the season is over, and see how Adibi, Diles, Sharpton, & Bentley do.

Then we'll see how the rest of the team did.

Then we'll see what the draft class looks like.

Then we'll.... I don't know, figure it out??

Then we'll draft another undersized NT, a FS who can't defend the pass, and five TEs.

Ryans, after healing, and then playing at 80 to 90% of his ablility is still better than most LBs. I'll take him.

You know, this is easy to joke about, but last year when they drafted 2 TE's, Owen Daniels went down. This year, they draft a MLB when they already have a couple, and DeMeco goes down. It's like these guys know something's gonna happen to guys in those positions. You scratch your head at the time thinking, "Why?!?", but it has a way of working itself out.

We don't get to pick 4 times in the first round, people. They work with the picks they have.

What did C&D say about the history of NFL players to come back from this type of injury vs a garden variety blown knee (MCL, ACL, etc) ?
One thing, I'm happy that DeMeco got paid this year with a new deal before this injury and only wish OD would have taken the deal presented to him last year before his knee injury.

Funniest part of it is the number of complaints about drafting Sharpton this past draft. I think "ZOMG!!! WE DONT NEED A LB!!WTF!?!?!?!" was the number 2 comment on draft day behind "ZOMG!!! WE DONT NEED A TE!!WTF!?!?!?!" and just before "ZOMG!!! WE NEED TO TRADE UP FOR _______________!!WTF!?!?!?!".

Same thing can be said about Connor Barwin, we could have two high end draft picks at 80-90% for next year

Just like the Lions and their obsession with WR's for a few years, we will be moving away from that right about now. Will only draft 2.
