Who says he hasnt had his knee repaired? 

Who says his knee can only be surgically repaired?

Who says knee surgery is indicated? 

This isnt swapping out an air filter, man. 

It's so weird around here. A player gets injured playing the most violent team sport and people hate him.

For whatever reason, people see Freeman (and others) as being less than human. It's one thing to be critical of his play and the contract that he got, but to act like he has never contributed, or that he was wrong for wanting to be compensated is crazy. It's a "what have you done for me lately" mentality, instead of hoping this guy can return to his previous form. The running back is seen as a disposable player now. However, good running backs don't grow on trees, and if they did, then every team would have two 1000 yard rushers. Freeman is a good player when healthy. 

I hope he makes it back, and that next season is much better as a result of it. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

A lot can be attributed to the fantasy frame of mind. If someone isn't getting you the points? Dump him and grab another. Like you said they aren't humam but some sort of commodity.

We will see with Freeman, team misses his energy and production when he is healthy. Now all we can do is hope he comes back.  But that is the key, cause he hasnt been healthy and running backs dont get better from sitting around. Rumblings and concerns that he potentially needed surgery but didnt want to go under the knife are valid, he could rest all year and it still not be healed properly. Dont think they can count on him being there every game or every snap, thats a lot leniency for an 8 million a year back.

Do we really want to see him in May? After Shanahan left, he is an average RB

You're saying Freeman became average last year (the 1st year without Shanahan), but the reality is that his stats were very similar in both seasons. In 2017 Freeman still had 856 rushing yards on less than 200 attempts for 4.4 avg per carry in 14 games. He also had 317 receiving yards in 2017. In comparison to 2016, he had 227 attempts for 1065 yards for a 4.8 average per rushing attempt, and he had 465 yards receiving while playing all 16 games. 

In both seasons Freeman shared carries with Coleman, with Freeman being the guy who ran between the tackles. Had Freeman played this season, then the running game would have been much better. Freeman was needed this season.
