Re: Devin Thomas Injured

So Laron, Chris Wilson and Devin Thomas all have leg mussel pulls/strains.

Is Bubba Tyer and co. to blame for these injuries. What about last years, has nothing changed in their approach to conditioning. I just dont get it.

Re: Devin Thomas Injured

Injuries are going to happen, and muscle pulls are common early on in camp. Why do people always need someone to blame?

God obviously hates us, so I blame him/her.

Re: Devin Thomas Injured

Im not blaming Bubba, and I resepct the fact that he's been with our team for so long. Im just asking is he to blame. If injuries wernt happening no one would be asking about injury prevention; being its obviously taken care of. Hamsting and muscle pulls seem to be a reoccuring theme with our team, more so then others.

Re: Devin Thomas Injured

I thought it was a little over the top when Malcom Kelly walked over to Devin Thomas on the stretcher and said "Now who's faster, biatch?!"

Seriously, I hope the injuries subside once everyone gets back into playing shape. Instead of blaming someone (ie Bubba) for the injuries, it's possible that everyone is just playing hard and putting forth a lot of effort. Not a bad thing, although we could do without the injuries.

Re: Devin Thomas Injured

People keep trying to tell me the training staff is not responsible for this sort of stuff.....but I insist it is a factor.

Yeah no doubt- I don't need someone to blame, but there's no question we have more friggin hamstring pulls than any other team. Unless it's a total fluke year after year (which I strongly doubt) or there's something in the water, this has to be, at least in part, a training issue. STRETCH and MASSAGE your damn hamstrings guys!

Re: Devin Thomas Injured

According to the redskins blog (http://theredskinsblog.com/): "Devin Thomas just walked out to the practice field with a wrap around his hamstring. Itís supposed to be a couple of weeks. I like being wrong on this one."

I think he was just trying to get out of the two-a-days... (kidding)

injuries like this (muscle/soft tissue), yeah, the staff is absolutely a factor. the strength and conditioning staff though, not bubba (like some in this thread have suggested).

however, that does not mean someone is at fault in this specific instance. these things are to be expected at the start of training camp. if we have another season like last year though, where it seemed like everyone was suffering hammy and groin pulls/strains, then the staff needs to be held accountable.

i made a thread on this very topic last year but i'm too lazy to dig it up.

Re: Devin Thomas Injured

My fault I thought the trainer was the same person is charge of over seeing conditioning programs and what not. John Hastings is that person not Bubba.
