    With a stout defensive line, McCarthy will be free to run around and injury himself in new and creative ways.

    It's not typically RB's that hurt backers. It's usually getting smashed by big ass O-linemen and fullbacks who have made it to the second level because the D-line didn't handle it's business. Good D-lines keep backers clean and free them up to make plays. Yeah, TE's can hurt LB's too but it's far more likely they get hurt through contact with O linemen and fullbacks. We've made the D-line much more stout. If they play well and McCarthy still gets hurt, cut him immediately because nothing will help.

    Great point. I was just trying to tell the dude that a LB can get hurt in many different ways beside the RB coming at them at full speed.

    Moral of the story is, is that Colin is fragile and it's maybe time to move on.

    And I think your point is irrelevant because it goes without saying.

    Football is such a crazy sport. People think it's all about the big hits but in reality people get hurt in the dumbest ways. I personally avoid being anywhere near the pile after the whistle blows. F that noise. You're not rolling my ankles.

    Being stepped on and pinched sucked. I always took a beating under piles.
