    Re: Kindle Update



    From one who has a severe hearing loss I can attest as to how important it is.

    At a press conference Ozzie took questions and Stan the Fan asked about Kindle's hearing problem, if it was a problem. Ozzie said huh? Next question and everyone laughed at Stan.

    Then the Sun ran an article how it was effecting him so Stan
    asked a legit question and Ozzie clearly didn't want to answer it.

    The guy who made my first hearing aid back in the 80s made one
    for a Redskin that was rigged in his helmet. It was a first ever but Kindle might not even qualify for that. An aid like that
    might not even help Kindle but that's what Stan wanted to know.

    if they allow hearing aids, which they should, i cant see the difference in a device that funnels sound to his good ear alone rather than amplifying it to a bad ear. I would assume the league would allow him to wear such a device, whether it actually helps him or not is another question.

    Your typo points up a problem that worries me -- non-existent experience at BOTH OLB spots. Even Kruger has never been a 3-down OLB. Afraid we'll have to pick up an experienced OLB off the trash heap, OR trade for one, OR hope the inexperienced guys step up huge.

    Good catch lol, meant Kindle can back up Kruger. But yes I don't have alot of confidence in that either. My hope, they go get a vet to put opposite Upshaw and let Kruger and Kindle battle for that pass rushing specialist 3rd down guy.

    Simple solution put him on the other side so hs good ear is towards the signal caller. Or the other thing, why wouldn't the NFL allow him to wear a hearing aid?
    I vaguely remember that when Vince Lombardi was coach of the Redskins. he discovered that his RB Larry Brown has a hearing impairment that made him get off the ball a step behind the count. I think they rigged up some kind of hearing device in his helmet that solved the problem. With today's technology that should be an easy fix unless the league is concerned that somehow Sergio will pick up transmissions to the opponents QB and therefore know what play is coming. That seems a bit paranoid to me however and could be easily monitored.

    Im studying more of the playbook and doing it in different ways than before. Im trying to be isolated no TV, no music, none of that. Im just trying to get away from people and the phone. I need to make sure my mind is focused on the task at hand and reviewing the playbook.

    Kindle looks to be in good shape but realizes that his biggest change can come from adjusting his mentality and preparation.

    If I learn the playbook as much as I need to I wont have to depend on calls as much. Ill just know what I see and go from there, Kindle said.


    WTF???? Studying the playbook more? If I learn the playbook as much as I need to? What the hell has he been doing the past 2 years? It's like he just realized this is serious and he better start hitting the books. Even though we don't see the King Serg tweets anymore doesn't mean he's actually grown up.
    I think you went looking for something in his quote to rip. He has barely played. Until he has reps to enforce the scheme, he has to study and then study some more.

    I really hope he somehow pans out but if Kindle does not produce in August he will be cut before week 1. We took a shot on an athletic freak with "off the field issues" and missed.

    We haven't missed yet. We'll know after this season though.

    Of course he has to study but why did it take him 2 years to figure that out?
