As a Vikings fan, I'm ok with this regardless of where the game will be played. No need to rush Teddy back.

/oh, and before I forget, fark Gregg Williams

Packers fan rooting for Bridgewater. Good guy.

And considering what happened to him, this is a good idea even if he's healthy enough to play.

/how freakish must that injury have been for it to be so... "not" talked about by those who witnessed it
 
2017-10-24 04:36:33 AM  
I don't know if I'd expose him to a gentle breeze.

I remember when he first got hurt there was talk that he might not walk normally again. To see him play would be impressive. The bit about not wanting to put him on slippery grass though, haha! I don't think the grass had anything to do with Rodgers' season coming to an end.

I mean, if we're talking about what could have actually happened without proper medical attention, I guess having one's lower leg amputated qualifies as "not walking normally"

Also, Rodgers suffered an impact injury. Surface doesn't have a lot to do with that.

Terry Bridgewater, rehabbing for months on grass and turf after an insanely catastrophic non-contact knee injury caused because he stumbled/tripped (so, a footing issue), having to play on a soccer pitch. You may as well tell him to go back to 1980 and play in the Astrodome, because it worked out so well for Earl Campbell.

The game on Sunday on London is being played at Twickenham.

A rugby football stadium.

If the pitch can stand up to this constantly

If it can stand up to guys leaning on each other? Must be made of some sort of super grass!

Yeah, I think it's more like they don't want to expose him to Myles Garrett...

/And with Cleveland's O, Everson Griffen is gonna house Joe Thomas' stand-in every chance he gets...

TBF, Zimmer said this "slippery grass" report is BS.

Joke's on Minnesota!  Sacking Kizer prevents him from throwing interceptions!  You're playing into our hands!  Hands which will likely drop the ball because Kenny Britt really wants to get cut so be can go to a contender!

Helpfully, subby included the real reasoning in the headline.

I barely know anything about rugby aside from a few matches when I was seeing a girl from Wales but I'd think the size of the NFL line players might fark up the pitch a bit.

Despite what the article says, being cleared to practise is NOT equivalent to being cleared to play. He'll need time to get used to the speed of play again. There was no chance that he would play this week anyway.

So, let's think here. Should Bridgewater stay home and continue rehabbing his knee so that it will be as strong as possible when he does get on the field, or should he sit on an airliner for 14 hours over the weekend to stand around and watch some games? I know which I'd choose.

Not if you compare the actual minutes of action in each game. Far more in a rugby match than NFL.

Each side of that scrum comes in at 1600kg (or 3500 pounds) pushing with a force of 8.9 kilonewtons  (3500 lbft) each. That is 16 feet having to generate that amount of force while at the same time stopping a similar amount of force equivalent to three and a half Doge Ram 3500's pushing against three and a half Dodge Ram's.

The point I was trying to make but failed at was that a QB can count on receiving a lot of physical abuse in a  game. If slippery grass will do him in, there's no real point to putting him in a game then because he'll be experiencing much worse than that. What happens when someone rolls up on his leg?
