Here's kind of a gross story that has bearing on Wilsons injury. Way back when, my mom suffered a similar injury, not playing football but something more domestic that resulted in the same injury. She had surgery on it and they inserted a piece of stainless surgical metal wire into her finger tip to keep it straight while it healed. Took a long time but eventually her finger straightened out and she was good to go,

When she passed, I had her cremated and we picked up the urn and brought it home. My sister wanted some of her remains so I had to open the container and there on top was that piece of surgical steel wire.

Durable.

Go back to what you were doing.

I have a few persisting issues from my days playing football, but I won't get into it. Just to say if I could
do it all over again I would have taken up golf at a much younger age and skipped taking the hits.

I don't even know what to say. LOL That's pretty amazing.

I'm hoping Geno continues to play like he did last night.

As it is Seattle is unfortunately at bottom NFC west, out for 6 weeks or 6 months wouldn’t really make any difference.

There defence has massive hole down middle of the field, like 1 commentator said they are playing as if they still have legion of boom. That ship sailed away long time ago.

Ownership needs to seriously look at rebuilding ASAP.
Added later: just maybe it’s time HC to retire.

I don't know what the problem is other than NFC West is the toughest division. I do know that last year they started out hot and lost 4 games total until the final loss in the playoffs. I'm hoping they're just starting slow and getting ready to get their acts together. lol We'll just have to wait and see. Getting Tre Flowers out of there was a good move. He just wasn't cutting it at corner.

Edited to add: I don't think Russ will be throwing anything for awhile...

It’s rather rare in baseball having a pitcher being Ambidextrous... it would be wild to ever see QB being this.

Jon Gruden has resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders.

If you're watching MNF they're going to talk about it at halftime.

My biggest question is, who hangs onto emails for 10 years? :135:

That was sad. The Colts had it, but I knew they'd have to keep the ball out of Jackson's hands. There have been so many games already this season that have gone into OT!

How many field goals and PAT attempts were missed yesterday? One guy missed 3 in a row.

I have no issue with what he said about Goodell. I think lots of people feel that way. The gay stuff though? You'd think that the world would know better by now. Too bad. He was/is a good coach but you can't be "that way" anymore.
