Default Jags Deceptive about Injuries

Quote:
Admitting publicly for the first time what many had already assumed to be the case, Fred Taylor revealed on Thursday that the knee injury he suffered in the Green Bay game last December was more serious than what was stated and that the Jaguars kept it under wraps.

Speaking to co-host Pete Prisco on The Frank Frangie Show (WZNZ, 1460 AM), Taylor offered candid comments about that injury and a groin injury that caused him to miss the final 14 games the 2001 season.

"It was a lot worse than initially thought," Taylor said about last year's knee injury. "How that came about, I don't know. It definitely was. They kept that under wraps.

If you want to take the Jags' word for it. Of course this is the same organization that lied about a Leftwich knee injury, then lied about Taylor's knee on a NFL injury report. Considering that it was a full blown reconstructive surgery (and that he hasn't even worked out yet), I'd be skeptical of Taylor being back anywhere near September 11th.

Actaully, I am taking Fred Taylors word for it. Not the Jags.

Quote:
"I'm not the type of guy that's going to rebel, rebel against the organization or go express all of my feelings to the media and start something that maybe we can handle right here in house. But you know, it only can happen so many times until a person gets enough.

"This is actually the second time that it's happened in my career, where I'm getting called out for being a softy, this and that. 'It's an injury where he should return in this amount of time.' And then, here I am, not looking like I'm working hard."

Taylor said he was encouraged by his rehabilitation and that he expected to be ready to play in time for the season opener Sept. 11 against Seattle. He also said he didn't see the necessity to play in any of the Jaguars' four preseason games.

"Even from the first couple years, I felt we had too many preseason games to play in," he said. "I don't even think I really need to play in one, even though I wouldn't mind. My goal is to be ready for the Seahawks on the 11th."

At the very least it looks like the jag's running game might be a bit slow coming out of the gate.

Speaking of Hefty, did anyone see the basketball skills thing on espn yesterday? I don't know if it was new or just a recording of something earlier, but when I first saw Leftwich I was trying to figure out which lineman was taking part in the competition. He definitely seems to be getting even chunkier than he was. Maybe he's trying to 'shed'(oops) his image of Gary Coleman by looking more like Fat Albert?

I thought the NFL fined the broncos for lying on their injury reports (a few years back)

Well, I guess you shut me up there...
I think your animosity towards the Jags is a little scary...
and by the way Byron is already weighing less than he did at the start of training camp last year. That ESPN thing was taped MONTHS ago and has been airing for at least 2.

All things being said, I think it's safe to say it's up to Leftwich to 'put up or shuddup' this year.

I'm not a . I'm more of a .
Btw byron is fat, regardless of what you've read.
And my scary animosity is merely a bi-product of a rivalry.
Oh wait a minute....you can't have a rivalry if one team wins all the games. Sure sure, It's a new season but for now, we've got braggin' rights.
So quit yer

We'll see ya 11-06-05 @ "the litter box".

Actually, our record against you is 2-4, so there for, your team hasn't won all the games...just to be fair.
So, Byron is bigger than most QB's...
but let's compare him to 3 who went to the playoffs last season, and one who went to the SB

Byron 6'5 245
Daunte Culpepper 6'4 260
Brett Favre 6'2 225
Donovin Mcnabb 6'2 240

the fat thing just doesn't make sense but if you want to keep on with it that's fine. Just don't think it hits any nerves, other than the fact that we have to deal with 's like you.

I deal with 's like you over on your MB's. What do you expect? A free ride!

And like Vinny expresses, get your facts straight. Our record against each other is 3-3. Maybe you don't want to remember but we beat your team the very 1st time we met, IN OUR EXPANSION SEASON (LOFL). Or did you erase that one from your memory bank.

Are you trying to help the Jags out? The Texans split with the Jags each of the first two seasons--that would be 1-1 and 1-1 or 2-2. Then they swept the Jags last year for 2-0 or 4-2 overall or better than 3-3. From a Jags fans' perspective that is 2-4.
