    Ravens starting LT Jared Gaither was carted off with a neck injury that appeared very serious at the time, and ended up keeping him out several weeks. Do I have the wrong game?

    While a neck injury could be related to a back injury, his back injury was reported to be a muscle tear, I thought. So not likely related to his injury in this game. Is it not thought to have been a muscle tear anymore?

    Re: If Gaither showed up to practice...

    Maybe if the man kept himself in shape, he wouldn't get hurt so freaking much. Did anyone ever think about that Sean?

    Hey mael,what's up? Haven't seen you in a while. According to Jared, it's the same play that he injured his back on. They were most concerned about the neck at the time. That stuff is so connected, that over-compensating one injury, makes another worse. I don't get where the rumor came from, that he thought it was smart to lose 40lbs in a walk year?...makes no sense.

    So, Jared claims that he injured the back during the Patriots game, early during the 2009 season, but no issues were found with the back until after training camp of 2010, when it was deemed a thoradic disc injury?

    Yes, and doctors have agreed. Speaking from experience, lacrosse, and a car accident, back injuries can flare out of nowhere. I know that's not the answer you want excel, but it's the truth.

    Re: If Gaither showed up to practice...

    By the way, if the back was really the issue the entire time, why didn't Gaither keep the team more informed during the previous off-season, between the end of the season and mini-camp, when Aaron Wilson reported that Gaither wasn't even in the shape that he was in previous years?

    Tony Lombardi has apparently made a claim that Gaither was late to team sessions, particularly weight lifting sessions. Are you saying that he is a liar, since all of these 'rumors' are unsubstantiated?

    Look at that picture Sean. The man barely has any legs. What lower body strength does he have?

    If Hue Jackson's group did not bring him in due to the injury, why did KC bring him in less than a month later? Has the injury, that has apparently plagued him since the first New England game in 2009, that cost him a contract with Oakland less than a month ago, healed that fast?

    By the way, both Jared and his agent (Drew Rosenhaus), months ago, claimed that Gaither was healthy and ready to play LT. Are they lying as well, since you say that Oakland did not sign him due to the injury?

    It's incredible. The guy does everything the wrong way and because he had a pretty decent couple of seasons in 08 and 09 some fans can't get it through their heads that his productive years were the flukes and last season and this offseason are indicative of his true character.

    He's a reasonably talented bum. We got the most out of him we could then cut ties. Good riddance.

    That is a link to an article where Jared claims that he always wants to be a Raven. Yet, you claimed that the team wanted him back as well. While I also claimed that the team did not want him back. Why is Gaither not a Raven Sean? He wanted to be a Raven? Could it be that the team really did not want him back? He signed with Kansas City for less than a million. Couldn't the Ravens afford that? Why didn't they pay him?

    Here is a link to an article by Aaron Wilson where Gaither's agent, back in MARCH, claimed that Gaither was fully healed from the back injury, while Gaither himself claimed that he felt great.

    Glad to see you over here at 24x7, Sean. I remember that you've had some similar medical issues that have kept you out of action from time to time, even on the message boards, so I understand your passion.

    A lot of things don't make sense... My wife still loves me, for instance, even after 23 years of marriage and a few more living in sin before that. At least she says she does. But that doesn't mean it makes sense. And where Drew Rosenhaus is involved... I personally think anything is possible, both ill and good. Making sense? Not so much when he's around, I suspect.

    Bottom line, I hope Jared can get it together and perform well. I always liked him, warts and all. But then again, I cut a lot of slack for most people, even for those many would say deserve none.

    Bang The Drum Slowly: "He was not a bad fellow, no worse than most and probably better than some, and not a bad ballplayer neither when they give him a chance, when they laid off him long enough. From here on in, I rag nobody.‎"

    That's the way I was raised. I am at my best when I remember it and at my worst when I don't.

    Regards...

    I had one post until the fifth page. My point is, why do former Ravens players and coaches, spawn so many threads of disdain...it's amazing!
