He broke a forearm in camp. What does a forearm have to do with weighing too much?

Do you know what a wing nut is?
Yes, yes, you think I'm crazy or whatever. Yet you're the one suggesting someone has weak bones because he's had some recent injury issues while playing offensive lineman in the NFL. Yes clearly I'm the "wing nut".

Hamilton is a great player who could not stay on the field lets hope kupe does not follow that career path.

A bit off topic, but didnt feel like it warranted its own thread. Re-watching it now into the 3rd qrtr, Beadles was beaten like a drum most game long. Atkins must be pure beast, cuz he just pushes Zane where he wants. On a lead block the LB swats him away like nothing too. I will give him a mulligan this game, since we won, and he's had pretty good year so far..

weak bones??! WTF? frankly I am impressed the man can walk without help much less play football. He has a sprain this year, he will get back out there, but weak? no the man nor his bones are weak. Geezus. Though I suppose that hypothesis aggravates me less that the one posited in the game thread about his busted Vag...seriously, sometimes people in here can be total ****wads.

Jeez, Miss I. -- warn a brother before posting a picture like that.

Get well soon, Kupes. We need you for our Super Bowl run.

Get well Kupes!!! We need you back, but take your time.

This just goes to show that after a MLB into draft next year, we need to seriously look at interior lineman and tackles just for backup purposes.

Ramirez is decent, but got rag dolled by Watt when we played Houston. Hopefully we can address the depth a little more in next years draft.

HA well I bet every player who was on the field today that was on the field last year saw Kuper and were like, "Oh hell know, I ain't looking again."

That is what I keep telling myself everytime I see it. Because something that nasty can't be real.

We haven't had many injuries this year. Just a couple of fluke ones. The new training staff is doing a great job keeping these guys healthy and in shape IMO.

True, but look at the difference from previous years. Players were always hampered by injuries (especially hamstrings), and the team used to get weaker as the season progressed. This year seems different than past years.

Do you really think that John would have given him a huge contract last year if this was true. Or that a doctor would not have checked that out?

That post was way out of your normal posting.

The uproar i would have in my inbox if i said Kupers body not right and cant support his weight lol! Kuper just unlucky with the injury bug right now. Still though it happens enough and it can really just ruin a player. Baja any other players that you can tell by looking at shouldnt be out there BWAAAAA!

I'm sorry but we had a doctor check you out. Turns out your skeleton is a size xxl but your flesh in a size xxxl. Were afraid you either did too much HGH, not enough HGH, or started or stopped at the wrong age.

Didn't Dennis Smith break his collarbone in back to back seasons? For the rest of his career he hardly missed a game. Sometimes you just have bad luck with injuries, freaky things happen. High Ankle sprains are a biatch though.

Hamilton's problem where repeat concussions, not skeletal injuries.

That's right God created every body equal. yep ever single one of us has the very same bone density and strength. Good call super fan.

I have never broken a bone in my life (except possibly a finger ) yet I have friends that can break an arm picking their nose.

We are all different. That is why this phrase evolved, " That player is made of glass" some people are susceptible to certain types of injuries. With some it's broken bones others it's hamstrings others it's sprains. ETC.

In Kupe's case I sincerely hope it is just a case of bad luck. Certainly that horrific break last year was not a genetic thing.

You know Miss I one can make an observation without being a negative fan or "total ****wads".

Oh I see you are not allowed any speculation or "I wonder if''s" around here. My bad, thanks for clearing that up for me Cut.

I did not say that was the case with Kupe I speculated in light of several injuries if he might be injury prone. God help me what have I done.

I thought is was chronic back issues. Maybe it's Harris I am thinking of.

At any rate I meant him as an example that there some players are prone to certain types or injuries

Oh and for the record (and for Kupe's dad) he is one of my favorite players ever and wish him a long and successful career.

Get well soon Kupe and I do hope my wonderings are completely wrong.

I don't know man,

Quinton Carter
Ty Warren
Joe Mays
JD Walton

- all starters to IR

Then there's Blake/Beal as reserves, plus Kuper getting injured twice.

PLUS a freak illness to Porter now as well.

That's 4 starters to IR, another two missing significant time.

Yeah that was Harris.

I know what you meant baja, and I sort of share your concerns a bit. Not that I think he's got a genetic weakness in his bones, but having pins/screws in your ankle from his break last year can't exactly be a good thing when you're taking on 330lb defenders.

point taken

I knew I'd be in trouble with you when I mused Kupe might have weak bones.
