This is why I have been giving Karlos props the last few weeks. He has been playing like a true leader. Backing it up on the field and spending less time talking.
Bill Belichick on "putting the tape on"
What's the difference in severity between his injury and Ray Lewis, why is Lewis in IR and not Karlos?
ah.. and the excuses begin
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
He isnt making excuses. You saw him out on the field didnt you? If you havent noticed, he is still out there playing pretty well and hustling his ass off. I know he was injured in the 2nd Jests game. Yet, he was out there the entire 2nd half playing injured.
Reggie Bush on the other hand suffered a bruise when he got hot sauced by Laron Landry and he was nowhere to be seen in the 2nd half of the first Jests game. The way he ran on them in the first half, his absence in the 2nd half couldve been the difference in winning and losing. In fact, he pretty much has been totally ineffective since that point.
Thats why Karlos is a real leader and Bush is not. Karlos has backed up his leadership council role. Bush's role in that council looks like a complete act. He talks a big game. The men have seperated from the boys.
I've been fairly impressed with dansby this year. He's out there balling hurt, and getting guys into the right places to make plays. He's a good cog for this defense. if there is no real significant threat to further injury, let him play... otherwise just shut him down. season is now over anyway. we can afford to lose one more game to make the playoffs, and it's pretty damn obvious that isn't going to happen.
Definitely gotta give him props for playing hurt. If he was 100 percent, I'm sure he would've had that interception last night.
-Dan MarinoI just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
Apparently he also has a dislocated finger. Now I forgive him for dropping a couple of interceptions.
Though I don't know for sure, the difference between Ray Lewis' injury and Dansby's could be the completeness of the tear. My guess would be that Dansby doesn't have a complete tear, though any kind of tear is significant nonetheless.
