I’m taking the over 8 weeks.  

Glad we added Moses when we had the chance.  

How about you support the players that wear out colors? Ever think of that?    Becton is ours. Wirfs is the buccs. Get on the waitlist for Tampa's season tickets or shut up man.

Wrong.

Being injury prone means you are more susceptible to injuries where other players wouldn't typically be injured. Basically, you're soft. The injury that happened to Becton on Sunday would have injured any player in the NFL had they been in that position. It wasn't like he was blocking someone and his knee just gave out because he's soft. He had a 350 pound DT crash down and roll up on his knee.

That's not to say he's not soft or injury prone. Maybe he is - maybe he's not. I personally don't think we have enough evidence to make that declaration yet but I can say with certainty that the injury that happened Sunday did not happen because he's an injury prone player.

Even in a couple of games where he wasn't, technically, injured, Becton came off for multiple plays for being winded.  That was just weird.

Beyond weird it was. There's something off with him mentally, IMO.

I still cringe when thinking of Behcton claiming on SNY that he and AVT are "the smash brothers." Self proclaimed nicknames do not go over well with the sports gods. When will young players learn to just keep your head down and play well before you claim greatness.

He had a girlfriend when he was drafted.  Louisville basketball player.  I heard that they broke up, and I think that affected him.  One of his problems this year.

I think if you charted successful OL over time one trait that comes through his high intelligence.  Not a requirement, but an indicator.  I don’t know whether Becton has that.  It appeared to me that Wirfs was the much more focused professional.   Yes, he did not play LT per se, but we need good players.

No question Wirfs is more of a pro-at this point. Also more technically sound. Didnt know of the GF thing.

You are wrong and a simple google search would tell you that.

 

The LITERAL definition is someone who is frequently injured.

That definition is incorrect. It’s simply  not right. 
 

Meckhi’s injuries are bad luck and not on him. His injuries aren’t due to an underlying impairment or previous injury which is more on par of the definition of being “Injury prone”
 

example: that guy who gets frequent hamstring strains because of poor soft tissue healing  from previous strains or poor hamstring strength/readiness for return to play.  Injury prone  

 

another example: Patellar dislocations/subluxations, often when you get one you are at increased likelihood to get another , if Meckhi has a repeated subluxation it’s likely because he is now prone to them since he got his first one. Or if Meckhi gets a left leg injury again and it can be attributed to poor MCL healing or residual weakness/poor readiness for return to play - that would be an injury that occurred because he is prone to it, at greater risk of it. 

His injuries so far have nothing to do with any underlying impairment or previous injury. So it’s premature to put that label on him.

You can use this foolish definition or you can use your brain and think about it. When you label a player as injury prone the obvious implication is that their body is somehow faulty. 

Football is a contact sport with a 100% injury rate. Some players have a tendency to get injured more frequently than others in spots where it doesn't seem like they should. These are often soft tissue injuries. Those are injury prone players.

When a guy has happen to him what Becton had happen it's just plain bad luck and any player would have been injured in that spot, injury prone or not.

Whatever you do for a living. Think of something (a concept/term whatever) that when ya look it up it doesn’t give the whole picture because the whole picture is more complicated than the quick and dirty explanation. 
 

I don’t need to argue a point that I know, I was stating the explanation to give insight because it’s in my line of work and hopefully it’s helpful. I’ll just see it my way and you can see it your way. NBD

He is too big for his own good and will likely have injury problems his whole career.

 

He is absolutely injury prone and his first 2 seasons are the proof.

 

But I am not expecting someone with him as their avatar to listen to reason about him.

Semantics aside, the guy has been constantly knicked up. If someone wants to blame it on his body or his luck in the end it doesn't matter because the results have been the same. His first 2 seasons in the league have been a disappointment at best and I dont think that is refutable.

The pick isnt looking good right about now.

Your definition of injury prone is just dumb. By your definition he is injury prone, but it's a meaningless label IMO. To me being injury prone is a label that means the player is "faulty" and more prone to getting injured than their peers. Every single LT in the league would have been injured on that play Sunday. No label necessary.

I am not ruling out that he's injury prone, I just don't believe there is enough evidence to come to that conclusion yet.

As big as his legs are, they still have to support like 340 lbs. Too big for his own good.

He sat out a game with the sniffles. He's tee'ing up the im a victim card. Just a bad pick that they didnt vet.

When injuries keep you out of roughly half your games, it's pretty fair to say you're injury prone. It's not a dig, or an insult or a pejorative, it's just a reality. Wish it wasn't that way, but as the old saying goes, the most important ability is availability.

We are seeing it with Trent Brown.  Guys that big don’t hold up in the NFL.  

Jonathan Ogden did.  6-9, 345 lbs.  Only missed 4 games his first 8 seasons in the league.  He only started missing chunks of games after he turned 30. 

I know Ogden is very much the exception to the rule, but still.  He's an example of a durable giant.

No one is saying its his fault ... we all feel bad for the kid ... but availability is huge ... how many games did Brick miss ?

Totally disagree, soft has nothing to do with it one way or the other.  If you are always getting hurt you are injury prone and so far he has been that, as the other poster said.  Multiple injuries last year, injury in camp then the big injury.  I would not say he is soft, but he gets hurt,... a lot.

Look at Ogden though. Looks like an Athlete at that weight. Not just a huge human

For sure.  He carried his weight better.  Plus he's 2 inches taller than Becton and is a bit lighter.  Just pointing out that not all huge NFL players have to have their knees turn to jell-o before they hit their mid-20s.

I hope the consultant has a stun gun to zap him if he touches a bucket of fried chicken.

The “Becton’s weight causes injuries” stuff is bs.  Last season his injury during the season was a shoulder injury. (Aggravated by Gase playing him when he should have been OUT) Last I checked your shoulders don’t support your weight.  This current injury was caused by a 300 lb guy accidentally rolling onto his leg
