    Yes, Amendola's been injured quite a bit.  For all those who want to rail at his signing, here's a question: what would have happened to Welker or Fitzgerald or Julio Jones or AJ Green or.... if they had received the triple Saints sandwich?

    [/QUOTE]


    My son is a huge Amendola fan, he keeps checking the news to see if and when he will be back, so this news makes him pretty happy.  Me on the other hand would just like to see him heal up so he can help this team.  Putting all the Amendola/Welker thoughts and comparisons aside, the success of this offense is partly dependent on Amendola being healthy.  If they can get by and make the playoffs without him then rest him and get him healthy for the playoffs, or at least for week 12 when the Broncos come to town.  I would be all for that.  A healthy Amendola for the Broncos and then again in the playoffs would be huge.

    IF and this is a BIG IF DA, Gronk and Vereeen get healthy and stay healthy and with the rest of the complimentry pieces surronding them this offense will be a very difficult to deal with come playoff time.

    [/QUOTE]


    No doubt about it.  If you lookback at the Ravens and Giants they got hot just in time for the SB, so why the heck can't we? It's our time to get some of that luck on our side, don't you think? 

    [/QUOTE]


    Absolutely!!! this team just needs to find a way to get to the bye 7-2. Again IF they can stay healthy, they get their offensive weapons back which gives them the second half of the year to get in sync offensively and it gives them time to figure out how they are going to compensate for Vince/Kelly. Talib in my opinion is the key and difference maker on D.

    I've just replayed the video of the hit.  

    http://larrybrownsports.com/football/danny-amendola-concussion-hit-head/207153

    DA was trying to get the first down.  Blaming DA for the concussion is just plain silly (actually not the expression I had in mind but trying to keep it civil).

    In all fairness, when this injury happened someone posted that Decker on the Broncos received the same exact hit later in the day that Amendola received.  I went back and watched the Bronco game with this in mind and sure enough Decker received the exact same hit, 3 people, side of helmet, on the sideline, as Amendola did.  It was crazy identical.  Decker jumped up unfazed by the hit.    Decker is a bit bigger then Amendola.  My son pointed out they wear different style helmets and might be part of the reason too.  It just seems like Amendola is prone to this stuff.  Some people are, some people aren't.

    Man, I'm sorry but I simply have to say that it appears as though you're looking for a way to chock up DA's concussion as just one more injury that he shouldn't have incurred.   How many collisions do we see on a football field every week where one guy gets up and walks away and another guy is injured? Does that mean that every guy who ever suffers a concussion in a collision similar to one somene else has experienced without injury is injury prone? C'mon.

    Re: Dan the Man gives it another go.

    Danny Amendola spent his first years as basically the only offense on his team, not to mention the only receiver.  Knock Amendola out of the game and your defense wins the game.  It's not so much that Amendola was injury prone but that he had a big target on him.  His only claim to being injury prone is being lightweight, unlike 250 lb. LaGarrette Blount, for example.

    So Amendola comes to New England.  An experienced quarterback, Brady, throws him passes that don't lead him into people, and Brady has other targets.  Amendola gets surrounded and speared in the head anyway by an infamous cash-for-pain team. 


    Enough with the injury-prone label.

    The concussion may have been a fluke, but the groin tear fits a pattern.  Maybe Amendola has just had a string of bad luck.  Then again maybe the same can be said of Ras-I Dowling.

    Isn't it BB's fault for drafting/acquiring players with a history of injuries when they ultimately can't stay or get on the field? Maybe it's time to do something different.

    Take it any way you would like, It doesn't matter to me.  I believe I have made it pretty known here how I feel about this guy.  However, I was trying to be a bit more positive here with it without totally dodging the elephant in the room, as Rusty likes to put it.

    My point was two fold.  It was amazing that Decker received the same hit on the same day.  2 different outcomes.  I might still have the game on dvr and will make a gif and show you if I do.  It is interesting regardless of the message you are trying to find here.  What does it prove?  Who knows if it proves anything but I do find it interesting that Amendola seems to be susceptible to injuries regardless of the nature of these injuries....  Normal injuries, strange injuries, common injuries, all injuries.  Like I said, there are some people like that.

    I don't know why you'd saythat...you're a Jets Troll...stop giving them what they want...stay away from this discussion board if you can't contribute something positive Jet Troll

    Amendola is a difference maker...he's the heart and soul of the offense...Welker didn't make a difference for the Broncos last week, did he?!

Ras and McCourty struggled staying healthy playing that way. Arrington can play that way, but gives up a lot in coverage. Very few have the ability to do both, like Talib.

    "Danny Amendola is determined to play this season and prove he's a quality signing"

    He's tough all right but unfortunately appears to be fragile. When on 

    the field, he has struggled. I thought he would be a good signing but 

    right now it looks a bit iffy. 

    At his best he can be better than Welker, but right now Welker clearly would have been the better signing. That said I am rooting for Dan though I am less interested in his masculinity than you and more interested in him staying on the field and making plays.

    Exactly.  Every player is one whack away from a concussion these days.  It's silly to pretend one player is concussion prone over another in the new Goodell NFL.

    My favorite part is how Goodell allows for helmet hits for players running with the ball and picks and chooses who gets fined.

    Meriweather whacks Eddie Lacy with his helmet, a fine and penalty. Bush does it to Amendola, no penalty and no fine.

    Roger Goodell is a flippin hypocrite phony.
