Eagles' Jeremy Maclin injured?

Postby SkinsJock » Sat Jul 27, 2013 3:04 pm

It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive soon, we have too many issues to address - we'll win some games but it will take years to be good again

Tore his acl. That really sucks for him and eagles fans.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I feel bad for Macklin, and for the team...

OTOH... Eagles fans? not so much...

The Eagles announced on Saturday that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will miss the 2013 season after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee during practice on Saturday. Maclin was injured during the non-contact portion of a 7-on-7 drill and then carted off the field.

Well, at least he wasn't playing in a pre-season game. :twisted:

I feel bad for the guy. Seems to be a team-guy and a decent person. At the end of the day, this is a person dream and livelihood.

Hopefully he recovers completely and quickly.

I agree, though, he's probably made more money already in his short career, than many will make their entire lives. So I wouldn't really concern yourself as much about his livelihood.

Am I the only one that did a tiger woods fist pump after reading "carted off the field"...?
Call me cold blooded, but the guy plays for the enemy, and is a threat... I have no problem minimizing the threats we have to face.
The man? Meh, he's got money and in today's medical science an ACL reconstruction isn't a big deal. Luckily he won't have to wait a year for some type of insurance to agree to pay for the MRI, another half year to get a second rate Dr to do the sx, and then have a hard time footing the bill when collections is after him two years down the road... I might be bitter but he will be just fine lol

I don't think it matters if he's made more money than whomever, it's irrelevant to me.

The point is, his livelihood is not in danger, as long as he's not stupid with his money.

Nah. He doesn't seem to deserve it. Now, Cortland Finnegan or John Mara? Different story.

Be a bit of a shame if Maclin could not play but not a big deal - happens all the time :twisted:

He's on the last year of his rookie contract (aka this is his "contract year"), so the BIG money will/would be in his next contract... but coming off this ACL injury the money might not be as big as he had been looking forward to.

At the same time, you can look at Fred Davis coming off a drug suspension at the end of the year of his "contract year" followed by a injury and I doubt he's complaining about his current pay scale.

Yes, but he was a first rounder in 2009, before the rookie wage scale, so he's still done pretty well already.
