    facts are facts

    FWIW I really want Morgan too suceed, but I apparently want it more than he does. Sadly true with lots of Titans

    How are the two mutually exclusive exactly?

    Rehabbing an ACL is not a 24/7/365 thing. Depending on where you're at, you do a little a bit of strength work and agility, but low impact (65-70%). Nothing that couldn't be done in Africa. So unless you're privy to his personal routines, you can't say that the trip to Africa had any adverse effect on his knee.

    How is it after one game you make a judgement on a player (Ayers) saying it was pretty much a fluke of a game and that he is going to suck anyway

    Then start a thread about CJ handicapping our team and say you were right all along (even though he was handed the ball only 9 times)?

    The math just doesnt add up:sad2:

    Ayers was impressive and he has a long way to go to shut up all the haters.

    Before the Jags I was thinking that ayers was overrated by most of the people here and some UCLA fan's (just like verner)but he prove me wrong he has another level.

    If he was a pro he would put rehabbing his body ahead of a personal poetry project or feeding penguines or whatever it was he was doing on the other side of the globe while ignoring his responsibilities too the Titans.

    plenty of other players have dedicated themselves to their rehab work instead of making it a secondary, at best, consideration.

    What?...

    I've said Ayers would suck- then gave him props for being one of the few good spots Sunday.

    So what exactly are you talking about not adding up?... I just pretty much admitted to being wrong so far.

    Read.

    It doesn't say 1st rnd draft pick desperate to play.

    If it was me I'd be in a hyperbaric chamber and the pool every day. Morgan is a bust at this point as a pro athlete. I want to hear some hunger from him to play.

    I'm with GoT. He'll have all the time in the world to go off on a jolly after he's finished playing.

    Realistically a big guy recoving from an ACL isn't going to be full speed until 18-24 months after the surgery.

    Harsh to call a guy who got hurt a bum but he's certainly on notice.

    You are right, but why do we say he is close to 100% in camp? Why not let him rebuild and restrengthen instead of pushing him and setting him back. I only call him a bum from thinking the guy isn't giving himself every opportunity to get back to full strength ASAP. We certainly need him and if he never turns into a halfway decent DE then we wasted a first round pick and it sets our defense and entire team back a year.
