I will be withholding said optimism

until I see him do more than jog in a straight line.
They shouldn't rush him back this week  
Go Terps : 9/13/2017 6:37 pm : link
I think this is a game we win regardless of if he plays.

Give the guy an extra week, and break him out in Philly.

If he can play, he should play. We shouldn't be saving him for later. We need to win this football game.

Never too late to start working on that point differential. What are we at right now -16? Gotta pick that up
Does it matter?

OBJ needs more than 1 second to get open.

Agreed. This game isn't a gimme anyway. Detroit can rush te passer and they have enough weapons on offense to make some noise. I think we are the better team but they aren't the Jets.

I have a good feeling about this week. I can't imagine the offense is going to look that bad twice in a row. Not to mention, we've been performing better at home lately, much more than I ever remember us doing.
i don't think Odell will play. With that high ankle sprain  
32_Razor : 9/13/2017 7:19 pm : link
and how he came up lame in pregame last week..nobody magically heals well enough in one week. I think he needs three more weeks.
Also, with a contract decision coming up, If he comes back too early  
32_Razor : 9/13/2017 7:21 pm : link
he might make some "business decisions" on the field. I really don't see how the doctors will clear him to play.
100% he plays  
brunswick : 9/13/2017 7:28 pm : link
Not even a question...he coulda/shoulda played against Dallas

Good to see we've got some more internet doctors here who know he could have played last week or that he needs 3 more... good stuff.

Well, at least he switched off from raving about how handsome Beckham is.

I'd be very surprised if Beckham doesn't suit up in Arlington. He'll be out there.


Hm.

Unless Beckham was a high-ankle, which I don't believe I've read anywhere, I'd be quite surprised if he was still too sore to go in close to 3 weeks' time.

arcarsenal : 9/13/2017 8:11 pm : link
LOL. A little stalker-ish - but anyway!

It was pretty clearly my opinion that he would play. I didn't make definitive medical claims or say after the fact that he could have played. Nor am I sitting here saying he still needs "X" amount of time before he can play again.

I thought he would be out there based on the fact that he wasn't in a walking boot after it happened and was able to walk on it - which usually isn't the case with high-ankle sprains.

I was over-optimistic and also wrong. No problem admitting that.

But I'm not sitting here saying he could have played as if I'm privy to medical information or examined him myself. If he didn't play, I'm pretty sure it means he wasn't cleared.

I'm also not saying he needs a specific amount of time before he can play. Why would anyone here know that?

arcarsenal : 9/13/2017 8:13 pm : link
All I said was I'd be surprised if he didn't play. Not sure what the issue is there. He didn't play - I was surprised. I thought he would.

The famous easy win. We have a poor offense and can easily afford to lose our one weapon that has an impact.

There is no easy win in the NFL. Any given Sunday and parity are much more than slogans.
Wow, arcane got toasted

....says the dipshit troll talking about Laremy Tunsil's grade in a week where he didn't even play football.

Tunsil graded out as best OL this week

incredible and we missed on him.


Pray tell, was it the practice field where he graded out as the best OL this week, or...?
Damn..

Beckham absolutely needs to play  
ZGiants98 : 9/13/2017 11:35 pm : link
If there is an even a chance he can. We can't go down 0-2 with this schedule coming up.

Holy crap have you seen this offense without him whenever he misses a game the past few seasons? We need him back bad.

An extra week?

Beckham should play  
Jim in Forest Hills : 9/14/2017 9:03 am : link
when he is ready to play
Save him for week 8  
averagejoe : 9/14/2017 9:13 am : link
when he is really, really, really sure he can go. I thought you were supposed to play every game to prove how valuable you are but I was wrong. OBJ is special. He enhances his value by not playing and watching his team struggle.

No hurry OBJ - we have a swift TE now running two yard crossing patterns.
If he practices Full  
Bluesbreaker : 9/14/2017 10:28 am : link
Then he will play by the sounds of the interview he was pushing to play . I agree with Arc that the odds are better that he does play . I think he has to practice a full go and see how he feels the next day . Playing Monday gives him and extra day . Not sure about the practice routine the last heavy practice before the game will tell the story I think.
doesnt matter as Eli will be running for his life.

I'd like to agree but the Detroit DL is a cause for concern, They're solid inside with Ngata and Robinson and I can see Ansah giving Hart or his replacement fits. To make a timely analogy, he's gonna answer his uber eats delivery shirtless and not tip. Slay and Whitehead can play too. I'd argue it's a better D than Dallas, and this O made them look like the Steel Curtain.

On the plus side, I watched the Cards-Lions game and Jarrad Davis was picked on big time in coverage. The middle of the field should be wide open if they can give Eli a few seconds. It could be Engrams coming out party.
