We don't know the severity of Alge's knee problem


Recommended Posts

Fact:

We didn't cut Alge for no good reason.

I think there is much more to this story than any of us are priveledged to know at this time.

The players who were cut ALL have extensive nagging injury histories.

Healthy and tradeable players get traded.

Unhealthy players get cut.

Rod Coleman is physically used up, he is done.

Gandy is physically used up, he is done.

Lefty is physically used up, he is done.

Lewis Sanders is done, he has severe slowness problems.

Marcus Wilkins never got healthy enough to play.

Jamin Elliot just never materialized at all.

and Alge...

I think Alge is done, his physical status just hasn't been announced yet.

For what they paid Alge, he delivered on 5 or 6 plays in 2007, nothing more than an occasional spurt. dude is used up, he has a bum knee.

Alge's being cut also seals any consideration of a Vick return...we win again.

it was just time to say goodbye to Alge...

That's a big, big assumption for a guy who played in all but two of his games last year. It would have come out either last year or leading up to the release, and definitely now if his knee was totally shot.

Have you seen him lately? He is slow than a turtle and fat as a pig. And he drops just as many as he catches. He hasn't been productive in 2 years.

He is/was a very good player but his career is going to be a short one.

The FO is certainly not going to discredit Alge until the Panties pay him way too much to drop balls for them!:laugh::laugh:

not an assumption, he also missed camp due to his knee problem,

the only thing Alge didn't miss was the chow line.

Alge, unfortunately, ballooned in size this year. Lost any quickness he had before, the few TD's were on plays that were blown by defenses. One TD was when the 2 defenders missed ALge because they crashed into each other, Alge chugged on past them when they fell down. A totally non-athletic play.

but Kudos to Alge for those sweet years.

later dude!

absolutely, if they traded Alge the trade would be contingent on him passing a physical. If somebody picks him up on speculation, he is on his own.

Thanks to Dimitroff for having huge 'nads when they are needed to make a tough call like this.

The BiGGer Question now might be who is next to be cut and who will simply be traded off..

no team would ever make a massive cut list on one day. The paperwork is huge and the fanbase can have a few days to prepare for the next round.

Obviously Alge's ophysical situation with his blown knees was the cause, Algernon was only a little over a million in savings. It had to be his health status was failed.

Just wait til DHall gets traded, hooheeeeeeeeeee, the fanbase will be rocked!

Joey will remain as a backup, besides, Joey came here to be a backup not a starter.

Joey will still have to compete to hold on.

We will draft a QB for sure.
