I am trying to keep a positive note on this kid.. but...


Quote:
# DT Justin Harrell suffered a knee sprain in practice on Thursday and is questionable for the game. "We're being smart with him today," coach Mike McCarthy said. "(Team doctor) Pat McKenzie looked at him this morning. He has a knee sprain. I haven't got the information on how his rehab went and so forth. So we'll test him through today, and I'll have more information by tomorrow" [img_r]http://www.amdeq.ca/fournisseurs/images/logo/logo_Humpty.jpg[/img_r]
# On whether the injury will keep Harrell out: "I'm hopeful not. Based on the conversation this morning, I'm leaning more towards that he would play. But we'll see how everything went today."
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

GTFO...

I speak McCarthy, so let me translate:

"He has a knee sprain."
Translation: The grounds crew have been sent out to find his shin, ankle and foot... the knee, however, is still attached.

"I'm leaning more towards that he would play, but we'll see how everything went today."
Translation: On first blush you would think Mike McCarthy is referring to JH's treatment... nope- he's referring to whether or not the grounds crew finds all of the parts referred to in the first translation. You will recall that the last time JH was just about ready to take the field, approximately 20 seconds before his first return to practice...they instead operated on him, in order to "speed his recovery." Now, that was a Ted Thompsonism, and I don't speak that language. Unreal.

Packnic--

I know you have to defend a lot against the TT/MM bashers, so you might have taken my post a little wrong. Mine was fatalistic and/or Gallows humor. Not sarcastic. Sarcastic are those that would have posted the exact same thing, but not coming at it from the perspective of a TT, Mike McCarthy or for that matter, JH supporter. I am a big fan of all three. We have been having a conversation the past few days about Mike McCarthy and his press conferences, and have been discussing his "close to the vest" nature as regards injuries, and his reporting/non-reporting of them. Of course I wish the best for Justin, and wish his speedy return to the field, as in this Sunday. I hope this clarifies and not further anger. This is not good news.

To this date.. Greg Olsen hasn't been a real factor either.. but your premise has validity.

Now Ben Grubbs or Jon Beason.. albeit hindsight.. Grubbs was a player coming out though..
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Exact same reason Thompson gave for cutting that running back...you know, what's his name...DeShawn...DeShawn...

The main difference appears to be Wynn wasn't a first round draft pick...

Geez.........talk about "injury prone".
If it were me, i'd say this is his last chance.
But it's not my call of course.
I have been cutting the guy slack, but he keeps letting me down.

This goes against my theory of giving a draft pick three years, but ... I'm done with him.

How many year contract does Harrell have. You can bet the only time this overpaid flop will show up to play is in his contract year and no other.
