Remember when torn ACLs were because of the artificial turf monster?

It's not just preseason. It's an offseason of sitting at home and working out on their own instead of being in team facilities. I just don't think these guys had the physical ramp up to get their bodies ready. Imstead it went from sitting on the couch to playing football games too quickly.
That's it IMO. There's no way these guys did their usual offseason workouts with the virus restrictions.

The new IR rules should be the way the NFL operates moving forward. I suspect a lot of injuries went under-reported back when IR meant you were basically done for the year.

Now there’s more reason to report the injury if you can get a guy back in three weeks and more importantly gain an active roster slot.

The flip problem is manufacturing reasons (like Stan Humphries’ “blood disease”) in order to stash developmental players, but I think it’s better overall.

There are things like the practice squad and more player movement in general since Washington stashed Humphries. Players will raise Hell today if they are not getting active development because they are unfairly slotted on IR. Better to be on another team.

Its funny seeing our injury report with only 3 guys because I know so many more are hurt. But when everyone gets put on IR for a 2 to 3 week injury it changes the dynamic so much. Seems like it is really good for giving new guys opportunities though.

Wentz doesn't know what it's like to play behind anything but a stellar Oline and it shows.
We’re the same, maybe worse.

We either have an all-world OL and elite RB or the best WR corps in the NFL hands down.

When Dak lost all of it he got obliterated vs Atlanta a couple of years back. He wasn’t even a factor in the game.

Wentz just won a game on a bomb to a guy he might have just met.

I mean pot meet kettle.

Sure.. I mean Wentz is struggling to throw for 200 yards a game while Dak is averaging 450+ but yeah...it's exactly the same

ARE YOU FUCKING HIGH OR WHAT?

Seriously Dak is the last person that deserves any blame in this shitshow

So you're comparing the struggles of a 2nd year QB with a 5th year QB? Interesting.
