I am trying to figure if LJ breaks down first or if THenry doesn't make it past mid season.

Why do you think he would? Its not like Jamal Anderson suddenly lost his speed after his big seasons...he f'd up his knees, just like TD did.

Jamal's knee exploded after he took a handoff without being touched, IIRC, and probably due to the high workload he had sustained the previous few years.

I don't think it happened in Atlanta. If my memory serves correctly, they were in their away uniforms when it happened.

Boy you aren't kidding....After watching Henry go under an MRI machine this week and Ekuban blowing out for the season you would think that Bronco fans wouldn't be stiring the injury pot.

Yes. I'm not wishing it on him, mind you. But I have been saying he would break down since late last season. There are a very few RBs in history that have been able to keep up the kind of workload Larry Johnson has been getting.

In that way, I actually feel for Carl Peterson. If he does break down, you have really hurt the franchise by having given him a big contract. But, how do you not give him a big contract, based upon the season he had last year? RB is just not the position at which you want your franchise player.

Or the heavy use of steriods for years caused too much muscle growth and his joints could no longer take it and SNAP

It never ceases to amaze me how people think that anything they say on a message board somehow brings bad karma to nfl players/teams/etc. People really need to grow up.

For every person that avoids talking about injuries here, there are thousands talking about them in bars, office water coolers, other message boards, or on sports talk radio. Please. Enough already. There is no such thing as bad karma from talking about something on the orangemane.

Having said that, I think LJ makes it through the season "major" injury-free, but I do believe his numbers will go down a little over last year. Fewer carries and less hunger to perform now that he's gotten paid will be the most likely culprits.

Gotcha.....I forgot about him coming back and blowing it out again.

I remember that Dallas Monday night game well. That year in my big money auction league I landed TD and Anderson and thought I had the world by the balls only to jinx them both into blown out knees.

His second year is the only time he has played a full 16 game season.
