Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I hate how he won't get surgery. I wouldn't even give him a one year deal. Go after Branch or draft someone else.

Proof? I disagree with his decision not to have surgery, but I haven't heard anywhere that surgery is recommended. If that is the case and Landry still isn't having it, then I hope the grass is greener for him elsewhere, because I wouldn't put up with him another year.

At least one Dr. has recommended surgery

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

why is landry getting such grief? its his body and his NFL career. he is pursuing the options that he feels are best for him and his career.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I believe surgery was recommended last year even.

More and more Landry appears to be a head case...obviously not in the "typical" thug way or narcissism ala TO for example. I suspect he's borderline in terms of IQ/mental handicap. Landry's utterly child-like behavior both on and off field, inability to learn even the most fundamental skills like tackling or taking the correct angle on a play, and his absurd fear of surgery are beyond unusual.

I doubt he'll be in the league by 2013.

Yes, it is his body and his career. And if he doesn't do what it takes to keep his body in optimal playing shape, he is free to pursue his career elsewhere.

Well, when one of the best doctors in the world (in this area) is giving you advice, it's probably best you take it. This makes 2 years in a row he's disregarded the advice, with last year failing with the route he decided to go.

you are assuming you know whats best for his body. unless youre a doctor and have worked with landry, you dont know what youre talking about. unless landry is allergic to money, i think its safe to assume that landry IS doing what he and his doctors have told him is best for his body and career.

What exactly makes you feel comfortable with a one year deal?

How would next season be any different for him than last season if he doesn't get his achilles repaired? I don't see how he could possibly get 100% healthy for next season by having a shaman wave a chicken feather over his heel.

If we sign him instead of another starting calibre SS then I fear that we'll end up with a backup playing SS for most of the season.

Carlos Rogers 2.0. He will go somewhere else, decide to get surgery, and dominate for a new team....

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I say let him walk. We cant afford to have our starting saftey sit out another year. Like parcels said " Football players play football". Get a guy that is a solid player in free agency, that can stay healthy and move on. I am starting to think Laron is a big sissy to scared to have surgury. Of course, I would never say that to him and hope he does not read this reply.

You forgot "Health permitting".

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

What is really amazing is the the blood platelet plasma "treatment" he is recieving, although being popularized by many athletes, has yet to sure true medical validity as a treatment. I don't know if he is afraid to have surgery or if he is using it as means to give him an out from the orginization, but I agree that we definitely can't have this be a yearly issue.
