I'll take the over and say the second Pittsburgh game.
$50 to the charity of the winners choice, post a screen shot of the donation receipt on this thread?
And I am young hard working average guy, I'm not in a position to give anything to charity because I don't have it to give. I have a mortgage to pay, and tons of other bills. Maybe one day when I am debt free that will happen but right now it isn't.
I picked a charity cause we could bet a million internet dollars and never ever see them, but it's easy to prove a donation has been made by doing a screen shot of an online donation.
Up to you, doesn't matter, but well just say he plays at least one snap on or before the San Deigo game.
Children, jesus.Bottom line is this, the REPAIED unit is stronger than the original supposedly. So WHY shouldn't he be back by the first Squeelers game? just because the INTERNET says so? Who was the last football player documented that had said surgery, AND only a partial tear, and everything the EXACT same? How LONG ago was it?
kaiser permantae or whomever didn't develop something new since than? Or scientists haven't figured anything out since than? really this argument is like saying everyone dies from cancer cause the internet said they did 10 years ago.
Everyone, myself included who sits only 3 rows from the field, has seen Suggs bouncing around and running back and forth and pumping his teammates up for the past 2 homegames. What waterheaded retard reporter who might have glanced in his direction for a split second see's who knows. Everyone knows the media is about useless. But I swear if they would've let him the game thursday he would've thrown on pads and ran out there. I FULLY believe, just from seeing him and him talking, that he'll be back sooner than the person who had the SAME exact thing 5 years ago and documented was.
This thread is hilarious. People really getting that heated over trying to be right about when the man is coming back. Bottom line is that nobody here is close enough to Suggs or the Ravens to know where he is in his rehabilitation or how close/far he is from playing.
We can talk all we want about past history of the injury but when you are dealing with an elite athlete and body, with the advancements in medicine, there is no telling what could happen. Nobody - nobody - thought Terrell Owens was playing in SB XXXIX after breaking his leg and tearing a critical ligament in his ankle, but he did. Carson Palmer had a catastrophic knee injury that people said could end his career after it happened, he was playing opening day the next season.
These are different situations, of course, but just examples of crazy things that have happened when dealing with NFL athletes.
I will say is that I have been at all three games too and Suggs was not limping whatsoever at any of them. There is a clear difference in being able to walk without a limp and being able to play in an NFL game, but this guy who I've never heard of claiming he was limping is 100% incorrect.
So we have a deal, $50 San Diego game, one snap.
I hope to God I pay you that $50 and lose, because we will have all witnessed a miracle and the Ravens will have a better shot of winning it all. I would LOVE to be wrong if it means the Ravens have better chance of winning.
Capn Silver, you want $50 I will give you one snap vs Pitt being that it is a week earlier. So you win, no reason to back out now.
Anyone else wants it (1st Pitt game) step on up.
And I am still waiting for ONE example of an athlete who has come back from achilles surgery in less thasn 8 months. ArnieUK has tucked tail and ran because he knows after checking the other thread that I am right about that statement, because it is factually accurate and I linked him to the story that backs up my "garbage" assertion as he called it.
David Beckham suffered a full achilles tear, had surgery on March 15th or 2010, and played as a substitute on 11 September of 2010 at the 70th minute mark against Columbus. Less than 6 months. A few weeks later he scored a goal in a win over Chivas and on October 24th he scored his second goal of the 2010/2011 season.
Here is the free kick against Chivas on October 3rd of 2010...which would be just under 7 months.
So, obviously it CAN be done and really depends on the person, the rehab, and the severity of the injury. Now, David Beckham had a FULL tear. As in, completely severed. Suggs - reportedly - only had a partial tear up near his calf. That could make a pretty significant difference.
