    Just brutal. They loved this kid and with Rudi wearing down a lot more in the latter part of some games these past couple of seasons, I expected Irons to make a huge impact.

    Irons would have been a weapon with a few games under his belt. Next year....

    Harsh condition for the kid. He won't get paid, right? Just his signing bonus?

    He gets paid unless they cut him. So he'll get paid.

    Watching the play he got injured on, you wouldn't have thought he tore his ACL. It really wasn't bad at all.

    Seems like some guys can make it year in and year out without problems, and some guys just don't have bodies for the pro game. Look at Bruce Matthews, what 18 years in the NFL without a single surgery?

    I remember the days when an ACL tear was a career ender. Amazing how much the medical stuff has advanced that he'll just be out a season.

    No kidding. Don't even f***ing joke about that. That's like joking about L.T. getting injured. Unh-unh.

    Them poor bungles.
