Panthers NT Ron Edwards is likely to miss the 2011 season after tearing his triceps in training camp.


It's a big blow to the Panthers. Edwards, signed to a three-year, $8.25 million contract last week, was supposed to add girth and run-stopping ability to a soft Carolina interior line. The Panthers will likely pursue an alternative, but the free agent market has been stripped thin. If they stay in-house, third-round rookie Sione Fua is the next best nose tackle option.

I know he would have to still practice but chances are in a different place, different practice he wouldn't have suffered the injury.

Well, while I am sorry for his injury, for him. I do not think it would matter what or where he was at.

I live in a Nebraska Town, that has OL on the Husker Team that was a true freshman and played in last seasons games. A QB, from where I live is now on the Huskers team. His older brother played base ball for the Huskers, then his senior year tried out for the husker football team and made it, and made some playes for the team. The Town I live in. Won back to back State Championships in Nebraska High School Football! If you tell me where I live, I will donate One million in Arrowcash to you!

Feel bad for Ron Edwards, and I am kind of ashamed by the lack of sympathy by Chiefs fans. He was brought in during the Herm/Peterson regime as a 4-3 DT. In came Haley and the 3-4 D and he got moved to NT. Didn't complain one bit, and got a heck of a lot better every season.

It will go unnoticed by many Chiefs fans but Edwards grinded it out for this team for the last 2 years in a position he was not "ideal" for and he did a hell of a job. I'm sad to hear of this news, but wish him the best and hope he gets back to a healthy career...At age 32, these things are tough to come back from.

I imagine it would either be Lincoln or Omaha and I would guess Omaha. Not sure who the players are that you are mentioning though.

Kearney! Been there many a time, not the arch, the city. Have gone to the arch with the family once.

I haven't even been to the arch. LOL. It really wasn't all they thought it was going to be and not making any money. They are now going to put a 2nd exit in Kearney which just happens to be right by the arch. They must think it is going to help with the business there. Millions of dollars just keep getting thrown away because of that thing.

I didn't know triceps injury's were less likely in KC than in NC.

Ok let me put this way. Lets say you were driving and got in an accident at an intersection. If you were driving somewhere else in a different part of town that accident would not have happened. Yes of course you could always get in an accident somewhere sometime. I didn't mean that Edwards would have been immune to any type of injury if he were in KC. Though we do have a pretty good trainers. :)

Apple....meet orange. The fact that he would have been doing the same pushing and shoving in KC as he was in NC has everything to do with it.

Ok you win NVM. You are right if he were still here in KC he would have tore his triceps too.

You are right if he were still here in KC he would have tore his triceps too.Its a two way street, he may not have gotten injured at all, opposite side of the coin, he could have broken his neck. Its all speculation. I wish the guy well, but I still think we upgraded the NT position.

They are both apples.

If an event happened at "SPOT A" at "TIME A" then having been at "SPOT B" during "TIME A" produces a different result.

Well, that is true. It's definitely speculative. But, considering the number of snaps that Edwards played without such things happening, it's astronomically more likely that changing where Edwards was at that moment brings a far better result.

The car accident scenario is right on.

Maybe, by not being at that particular intersection at that particular time, you wind up having a worse accident at a different location, but the odds are too low to really consider legitimate.

HOWEVER....... If the brakes wore out, causing the accident, then it is probable that something bad was going to happen, regardless of location when it happened. No way of knowing if this was a problem with Ron's body being unprepared, or just something that was pure chance.

As for the NT position? I have to agree with you there.

I think Gregg has a great resume coming from The Ravens, who have been extremely tough against the run for a long time.

And I am still plenty satisfied with the drafting of Powe. Really hoping that he becomes as effective as Gregg was with Baltimore.

In fact, the advantage to bringing in Gregg, instead of Franklin, is that it leaves more room for Powe to work his way into the position, without having to bench, or cut, Franklin, and a high salary.

I bet Pioli knew he had a sore arm and told Clark the best way to save money is to cut him so Clark can keep the money.

Oh wait wrong thread.....
