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

    My only problem with this list... you gave Quinn Johnson and Craig Stevens the same rating as Chris Johnson, which is really wrong. If you really want to give QJ/CS a C+, then CJ gets a D. Hell, Cj should just be a D anyways, since he seems to play for the other teams defense as much as he plays for our offense.

    You see that rg3 got a concussion but has already vowed to play next week. One can only hope that one day Locker shows that kind of toughness!

    Why do any of our O-Lineman get anything better than a D-? Because they used to be good/decent? They're incredibly horrible now!

    Once a shoulder is already popped back into place all you have to deal with is a little pain for about a week. Thats it. Separated/dislocated shoulders injuries is all about how much pain you can tolerate once its back in place!

    The ligaments have microtears and the shoulder isn't stable. It is more likely to be displaced with an even lesser hit. And it hurts like hell when it happens, when it is reduced (put back in place) and for weeks after.

    Considering that is often the shoulder you go down on when hit hard, I'd be reticent to play behind that spaghetti strainer O-line.

    Personally I think it's the coaching staff holding him back. They seem to handle every injury with kid gloves. I bet Jake wanted to play in the Houston game, the dude is tough as nails.
