    Jake Long is risking serious long term injury!

    I'm sorry guys as much as I want Jake Long to tough it out and play I think this is a bad decision. The RT for the jaguars Britton has the same injury and he is now out for the season and getting Labrum surgery. Also this is what happened to Justin Smiley, he tried to tough it out and it made his shoulder worse and he has not been the same, the guy can't even get on the field, now I'm not doctor but everything that I'm hearing about this injury is that it is serious and Jake Long is making a bad decision, I would rather have Jake Long for the next 10yrs then have him for the next 8 weeks!

    There is some concern, but we have to believe this regime wouldn't jeopardize the long term health of a franchise LT. Who is Long's agent again? I'm sure he is a heavyweight, and would be in Jake's ear if he were doing something really stupid.

    Although I do agree with you 100% I have to think this FO isn't stupid enough to risk their starting LT's future just for a slim chance of making the playoffs this year. I'm thinking more on the lines of they actually know more about the injury than we do and are not disclosing all the info, maybe not as bad as thought

    They made the Penny decision starting to save their jobs IMO...So nothing would surprise me.

    Dude if they mess up Long's future I have to think they have no future in the NFL either, especially Sparano being a lineman coach prior

    I'd be more confident that you were correct if I was confident that Sparano would be here next year and beyond. Jake needs protecting from himself but if the coach needs him to play to help save his job then that's where it could end all badly

    Ireland and Sparano are not thinking long term anymore. They are trying to save their jobs, even at the expense of player health and player development. Someone needs to step in and stop this madness.
