    Is there any possible way that this coaching staff could've mishandled that hamstring situation any more than they have?

    We'll probably be dealing with this all season long now, GREAT. :(

    Agree. Just sent an angry text to a buddy saying we should have sat Arian this week.

    Boneheaded decisions like these - by our HEAD COACH - is what trips us up.

    It doesn't make any damn sense. I can see trying to rush the guy back or being impatient if you were a team that struggled running the ball or lacked depth, but given the depth we had they should of gave Arian all the time he needed.....and then add another week on top of that.

    It's these type of decisions by this organization that draw so much ridicule and doubt from the fans. I still don't know what the hell he was doing in the 49ers game, that was the dumbest decision of all. After the Saints game I would've said "Okay...he's ready" and then shut him down for the regular season.

    Slaton was wide open on his first play but Schaub ran to his left.

    Ridiculous decision to play him today. Suit him up because Ward is out? Sure. But last resort to play him. Dumb, dumb move. Just knocked him out of 2-4 more games by playing him today.

    I'm sure something happened. Hopefully he just felt some tightness and they decided to rest him.

    He'll be fine. Probably did more work in the "normal load" Wednesday than he did today. Can't see how it was any real crazy setback.

    I read somewhere that its reaggrevated but don't have a link (think its buried in the gameday thread)

    When you have 4 RB's who could all start for other teams around the league, why oh why are you rushing Foster back? Tate put up 116 yards last week and once their hand was forced and he became the feature back today he's put up another 100 yard game.

    Kubiak said that Foster is okay and wanted to go back out there but they took precaution.

    I didn't hear anything about him tweaking it again. It could just be that they had planned to limit him?

    Kubiak said that his hamstring "experienced fatigue".............code phrase for pulled his hamstring again........."and he will be evaluated tomorrow"...........code phrase for MRI.

    He did not say this, but it can be implied that the MRI will not be available thru Twitter anytime soon.:kitten:
