I loved "studies" like this. What they fail to distinguish is that 2/3 of the league are one serious injury away from being out of the league anyways. They are holding on by their teeth to stay in the league when healthy. Once a big injury hits, even if they recover, they never get a second chance. I'd bet it's more like 2/3 of the starting players who suffer the injury make it back into the NFL. Maybe even more.

The only thing that I am worried about with this deal is why isn't he running by now? Either way, I am confident that James Andrews can fix whatever the problem is.
Apparently the wound wasn't healing right which required the 2nd procedure. So at least it wasn't a problem with the tendon itself.

You know if you look at MattyK and Maake written (or typed) enough times next to each other they start to look the same...time to change your user name Matty?

If Matty is 6'5" 350 I may start agreeing with him more...

Yes forgot about him, but even when he came back it seemed like his lateral movement was diminished. However he did seem to play ok against us when we played Detroit this year.

Re: Maake Kemoeatu DT signs 2yr $7million deal

What I find most encouraging about Kemoeatu is his durability, at least until last year when he was injured.

His four years in Baltimore he started 61 of a possible 64 games.....His three years in Carolina he started 46 of a possible 48 games. I dosen't get any better than that when it comes to games started. If he can get back on track completely he'll prove to be a very good addition to the team.

I was looking back at how he got hurt and apparently he injured himself during the first 30 minutes into the first day of camp. No contact involved.

Talk about a freaky thing.

Oh, another name for him would be, KemoEATU. I'm lovin this guy already.

It's used all across the league

a LB just comes in and lines up outside on the line, they don't shift back into the 4-3 alignment

Carolina missed him badly at the beginning of last year, but by the end, they had figured out who needed to play where, and we're a very productive defense down the stretch without him.

That's probably why they let him walk. Player who was an integral part of their past defense, but his injury necessitated a change in philosophy. And then he really doesn't fit as any more than a spare part.

Yeah, it was simular to Jon Jansen's injury, no contact, his ankle just caved in. Chris Cooley's injury last year was one of those non-contact injuries as well.

i googled the term and came up with no hits, so i can't beleive the term is used all across the league.

i get what it is - i just think using that terminology is like saying we'll run a 4-3 defense with a 5 man front because one of the linebackers is lined up on the line. its the terminology that was confusing - not the actual act.

If he develops cancer, they'll give him Kemo-therapy.

When he visits Japan, he wears a Kemo-no.

Of course, in the Tibetan language, a Kemo is a female dog, i.e., a bitch.
