I've heard it's a little from column A, a little from column B....but more so from A

Why does he want out? Can't take being with a coach that hold players accountable? Seeing his on his 2nd strike with the failed drug test policy, he's lucky to have a job.

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.
It wouldn't. But even though the odds are against it, there's still a chance his "alt route therapy" still works. If the coaches see the adequate progress made by April-ish and he's still unsigned in free agency, and he's comfortable coming back on a 1 year deal and proving himself, I'm fine with bringing him back for another year.

Reread my post. I'm not saying give him a one year deal on a bum knee, I'm saying if the circumstances fit and coaches feel he can contribute, bring him back on a one year deal. I don't feel like creating another hole on this team and filling it with another free agent option.

Nope, I am not assuming what is best for his body. Did I give specific doctor's advice?

I'm just telling it like it is. He can make whatever health choices he wishes, but if he makes choices which restrict his performance, the team will certainly take note.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

One of the most respected drs in the field said they need to shave bone barbs down that are snagging the tendon... seems to me that rest and strengthening of the tendon won't take care of that alone.

Are we talking about Landry or TW/FD here?

I know Landry has not performed well lately and his health is a question, but my paranoia leads me to the same conclusion that you have reached. Despite the negatives, I am reluctant to give up on the guy. I think we can do a short-term signing (one year) and see how it plays out. I say we keep him for 2012, provided we can get for the right price.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I'm already looking forward to seeing Gomes play SS. He might not hit like LaRon Landry, but he's solid. Gomes is still young, and his rookie experience will aid him in defining his game more and more.

Can't play with him, won't play with him or something like that.

Athletes don't always make the best choices in regards to treatment. For example rather then work closely with an actual neurologist Sidney Crosby sees it better to fly to Atlanta and meet with a guy that claims to be able to treat his post concussion syndrome with spine adjustments and balance exercises. His title.......Nuerological Chiropractor. A Chiropractor that can treat seizures, migraines, and post concussion syndrome.

Quote:
“Carrick then went on to say that they’ve essentially re-programmed Crosby so that space now appears on an appropriate grid. The term “markedly stable” was also used a few times.”
I'd at least like to hear what this treatment Landry is seeking actually is but if it's some hoax form of alternative medicine like chiropractic, reflexology, or magnets then it's time to move on.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

if you have been posting in this thread this article is a must read. it is from march 2010 but it has a lot of information on the achilles and the effect it has on athletes, mainly nfl players

Quote:
Compared to the general population, athletes in the National Football League (NFL) are at increased risk for injury because the game involves explosive acceleration and sudden changes in direction.3 Very little is known about the epidemiology of Achilles tendon ruptures in the NFL. Utilizing data publicly available on the Internet, one retrospective review identified 31 Achilles tendon ruptures in NFL players over a five-year period (5.2 injuries/year).3 During the 2008-2009 NFL season, six players suffered season-ending Achilles tendon ruptures. Although the incidence of Achilles rupture is low, 0.93% per NFL game, nearly 36% of affected players never return to playing at the NFL level.3
Quote:
Furthermore, in the reviewed 21 NFL skill players who returned to play, there were significant decreases in games played per season (11.67 games per year pre-injury versus 6.17 games per year postinjury) when averaged over the three seasons before the injury and the three seasons after the injury.3 There were also decreases averaging nearly 50% in power ratings of the returning players for the three seasons after the injury compared to the three seasons before the injury. These data indicate that even in players able to return to their former level of play, the quality of play may suffer permanently.
hers is the entire article Return to football after Achilles tendon rupture | Lower Extremity Review Magazine

it's kind of depressing if you have hope for landry's return to playing an an elite level
