That'll teach him to score on us...

just joking of course. Tough pill to swallow for the bears. Unfortunately they won't get much sympathy from me as we have injury concerns of our own.

" Green Bay officials still have not received the injury grievance that ESPN.com reported quarterback Tim Couch filed against the club last week. Could be that the paperwork is not yet completed. But the Packers are curious as to the grounds of the grievance, since they say Couch insisted in camp that his arm was only sore, not injured, and never requested an MRI exam"

thats the latest on him......

I heard a couple of weeks ago that Jeff George was waiting for a call from anyone. Did he go to school in ILL.

If I remember right, no one touch him. He hurt the leg on the turf when he jumped. ???????

I don't remember anyone ever hitting Grossman's knee. At first, I thought it would be a head or neck injury, because someone tripped over his helmet going for the loose ball, but no, I never saw anyone make contact with the knee. That doesn't bode well for Grossman's longevity as a pro player.

The Bears say they have faith in their 2nd stringer but I wouldn't be surprised if they went out and snagged up someone to fill in especially since they have a good team.

It also doesn't bode well for the TURF. Who was it that hurt themselves in the pregame in week one.

Turf is harsh I remember a preseason game against the Cards about 6 yrs (on the old turf) ago when they lost 3 starters to knee injuries in that game. I don't think this turf is any better for injuries than the old stuff.

Looks nicer except for the endzone lettering. I think they just want less clean up for the Twins Games.

I did a paper in my second year at Weber St. University comparing Turf and Grass and the injuries accuired on both.

I remember writing about a Bears reciever who lept for the ball and his knee caps ripped away and when he landed they were up by his thighs. The picture was gross. The injury happened on turf.

When you add the knee and leg injuries up there are about the same ammount I think because football is just a physical sport and it is hard on the lower limbs and joints.

But the glarring fact that stood out was that there were many more injuries on turf where the injured player had no one around him when he got hurt. In other words no other player caused his injury.

Michael Irvin, he did it were the 1st base or pitchers mound would be. I heard a report that the ground crew did a bad job when they put the section of turf down to cover those areas and that it was not the same hight as the rest of the field.

Did anyone watch the Sunday night game Oak vs. TB? Charley Garner went down with a season ending knee injury and no one was around him he just went down. I remember thinking that if that would have been on field turf instead of natural grass that everyone would have said it was because of the stupid turf. Fact is injuries happen and they can't be blamed on any one thing. Personally I like having sure footing and not having to worry about my feet slipping out from under me.
