DirtyBird757 Posted February 24, 2012 Share Posted February 24, 2012 Can I ask you this: If he played the Giants game and tore his ACL, how would you feel? Who would you be pissed at? Yes, in your eyes, him sitting out the game for money would be "wrong". But him playing the game on a less than 100% knee is too great a risk for all the hard work he put in to get to this point. Plus, it was a mutual decision with the coaches. Smitty said that. You sit your best corner when you know there is always next season. Even if it wasn't his contract year, I think Smitty sits him because Grimes career is longer than that 60 minutes. If we didn't have him this coming year because they pushed him too hard and the injury got worse, then it would be all out chaos on this board.I don't dispute that logic. I just believe as a competitor there will always be some factor of risk. I know that Grimes was undrafted coming out of college. However, if I had his skillset and COULD play in the NFL, I definitely wouldn't have sat out of that game. I'm sorry. The focus should have been on the team (from my perspective). I think that it comes down to principle and influence. I would not be pissed with anybody. I would just wish him a speedy recovery and hope that he would be wearing red and black again. Peyton Manning didn't complain about risking injury when he was pushing himself to get healthy from a NECK injury. He wanted to play regardless of the money that was due to him. That is what I look up to and have respect.I won't be the guy dishing on his wife like the other posters had done before and I am not even upset with Grimes. I have a nonchalant feeling toward him. Moreover, we didn't even need him for that game. So, it really didn't matter to me. I just want a guy that wants to win and help the team.
