I see threads about firing coordinators, but what about personel?

    On what information or history do you base you theory on that Locker is tough as nails? Please inform me!

    Thank you exactly my point. It's all about being TOUGH enough to handle the pain. Clearly he was not!

    In all seriousness, you're the only person on earth who feels that way about Locker.

    I watched Locker take hit after hit behind a horrid Washington OL for multiple years in college and he pulled himself off the ground every time.

    Well lets see. He has had to come out of numerous games because of hits, even if he did go back in the game. He separated his shoulder on a simple tackle and separated it again on a mild hit. In college he got hurt in a game and had to go to the hospital. I can keep going if you'd like?

    As in he also tore his hamstring playing baseball in college!

    With the exception of a few players, I would downgrade every single player atleast one letter grade.

    It's about long term versus short term gain. Read his comments- he wants to go back play. (I don't be you honestly think Locker isn't tough enough to play or he is afraid to play.)

    In this situation, another displacement will likely create larger ligament tears that would require season ending surgery. He played after the first dislocation in a harness. It would be stupid for him to rush back and face a longer term injury behind this crappy O-line. His being out isn't an indicator of his heart, but rather his brain. (And I'm not even sure that it simply isn't the coaches being smart about this.)

    An injury prone player isn't necessarily someone that isn't tough. (McNair?) You are being way too hard on Locker and I usually draw a hard line for accountability.
