Brandon Copeland injured.


Is it just me, or are there an historic number of NFL injuries this year?

losing experienced players in preseason games is stupid. You know what they can do. Play the rookies, free agents etc.

Feel badly for Brandon who worked so hard for this shot to advance beyond being a special teams performer.

This injury only highlights the risks talented high school kids take when they opt for big time programs over a higher quality college experience to chase an NFL dream. An NFL career is a matter of both skill and luck and is fragile at best.

Look at the experience Josh Rosen describes. This was a kid with Ivy pedigree who chose a different path although the Ivy path was clearly available.

Speaking of lucky - the Ivy grad with the best NFL gig has to be Zak DeOssie. Not that you can't get hurt doing what he does but, the shelf life of a quality long snapper has to be longer than a field player. He's had an amazing run.
