Blowing out a knee is certainly a major injury, but medicine has come a long way. Edgerrin James, Willis McGahee, and Fred Taylor are just a few guys that have come back from blown out knees. To say that he's not going to be as good as before the injury is jumping the gun a little bit. All of the guys I mentioned are RBs and put much more of a strain on their knees than do QBs. It'll take time but Daunte will be back.

McGahee was definitely a blown out knee with all three ligaments torn. The others I mentioned might have just been the ACL. Either way, I think Daunte will be back just as good, it'll just take time.

yea he did... it's one of the worst injuries you can get... much much worse than just blowing out one of 'em.

you're never the same after tearing all three. doesn't mean you still can't be good... but you never have the same mobility and agility in that knee that you once had, no matter how much rehab you do.

which is a fairly frightneing fact about mcgahee...

I can't even imagine what that must feel like.

what do you think is a worse injury, rupturing the achilles or blowing out the knee?

I know it's like choosing between the electic chair or lethal injection but I think blowing out the knee isn't quite as bad as taking care of the achilles.

i've sprained my PCL... that doesn't feel very nice. tearing it outright must be rediculous... tearing all three? owie.


i think the only sports injury that could be more painful would be ripping the muscle off the bone... like what nomar did this year and piazza did last year back. that's gotta be a bitch.

Yeah, ripping the muscles off the bone probably isn't a goodtime either. Ted Johnson did that in consecutive seasons, once with the right biceps and once with the left biceps. Not fun.

i was going to tell Hewson he should change the name of his fantasy football team because Vitt was turning Jackson into a fantasy stud. then i checked and he already did.

Yeah he tore them all right, all the way off! When Kellen Winslow got his ligaments torn on TV and they showed it in slow motion it looked like the whole lower part of his leg was gonna come off. If it hadn't been for the skin it might have.

Yeah I have seen it too many times. Jerry Rice, great as he was, lost his afterburners and became mostly a possession reciever after that. I like Daunte, I'm sorry for him.

Of course then he went and had angioplasty...is the Rams' head coaching job that stressful? It causes Martz and Vitt serious heart problems and made Vermeil cry (then again the wind makes Vermeil cry).
