Yeah and if all teams report injuries like they're supposed to, the advantage goes BOTH ways.

So there is no advantage.

However it DOES prevent organized crime from being able to take advantage of internal knowledge about which the public in general is unaware. Not that we've seen any game outcomes effected by forces other than the teams playing the game, right?


Your if only exists in fantasy land. The fact is other teams don't fully disclose injuries. So why the hell should GB do it? Pretty much the only thing disclosing all their injuries would do is make nerdmann from packershome feel better and put them at a competitive disadvantage. That doesn't seem like much incentive to me. So much for being assholes...

So true. EDS is IMO underrated and you can put him in at C/G at any time and TJ Lang fits as RT as well. That said, if one more OL goes down, we're going to be in a BIG trouble.



Just shut Bulaga down already. He's been playing subpar anyway. Scope his knee, and fix his hip and get him on the road to rehab. That way he will be ready next season for training camp. Makes no sense for him limp through the season.

The league instituted the injury reporting rule for a reason. That reason was to protect the integrity of the game.

So there must be a reason they don't strictly enforce it then right? Or is every team going to start fully disclosing their injuries if the Packers do it? I think not. You still have not explained what incentive the Packers have to be the only team to do it that way other than to make you feel better.

I think he's saying that players that were hurt a couple weeks ago that keep missing games are just now reporting their full serverity of the injurie they had.

Now.. sometimes you don't know how an injurie heals or how long it takes as it lingers. It could take one week, it could take a year... It's not hurting the team... it's not breaking the rules. They have no control of injuries. There's no point telling us the same thing over and over each week unless it's not getting better. Which happened to Perry. He was on that list each week saying he didn't practice and that he was out for the games.

As long as they're on the report I don't understand the problem..

The teams are nothing if the integrity of the game is lost.

The league instituted the rule to put gambles on an even playing field. It took away the advantage that a few insiders and their buddies had over the rest of the schmoes.

Do you really the NFL, Inc really cares where the average fan sitting on his sofa drinking a beer, eating his nachos and waving the giant foam finger knows if the Dallas RT hurt his pinky in practice on Wed or not? I don;t think so.

They do care if the betting line is toying with because of rumors being spread about that Eli has a bust wing and is going to miss the next game.

Yep, because knowing player X has an injured Y boosts the integrity of the game immensely. I mean, how else will players know who to hit and where to hit without that precious injury report?

I'm convinced the report is for oddsmakers and oddsmakers only.

Agreed. He will NOT be ready for the playoffs. Something similar totally took us out of rhythm last year when we needed offensive consistency.

So, the Packers reach a season game high in rushing yards in a game Bryan Bulaga misses a good majority of the game. Interesting. I hope Bulaga heals up quick. The OL depth is not so hot.

It does irritate the hell out of me, but I think the integrity of the game is more important to the league than my personal angst.

It's been made official

Quote:
GREEN BAY - Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga is the latest player lost for the season.

Bulaga succumbed to a hip injury, according to a release by the team on Monday. He had started the first nine games of the season for the Packers at right tackle.

In a corresponding move, Green Bay re-signed linebacker Vic So'oto. So'oto played in seven games for the Packers in 2011 and played in four contests for the Oakland Raiders this season before being let go.

McCarthy said the "early diagnosis" says he does not need surgery.

I'll bet he intentionally lied just to mess with the fans. [grin1]
