That joint is designed to be joined by flexible tissue. The jury is still out on that procedure long term. It could lead to bone brakes due to the limits the screw stops place on lateral movement. All of that said, if it proves out over time it will be a game changer for sure.

2 years down the road?  5 years?  In medical terms, that procedure is still experimental. There is a lot of talk it will be the next "Tommy John" type of surgical procedure in sports medicine if it proves out over time.

Hellooo!

Legend Steve Young??

Russell Wilson / Aaron Rodgers? 

When someone says “mobile QB” I take that to mean QBs who can double as running backs like a Vick or Cam Newton. Not someone who just runs outside the pocket a little bit.

Wilson is the only one that falls into that category from the list above and he had a shutdown defense.

Let's hope so. Don't want injuries slowing down the game. Did you hear herbie say he he had the same injury and it knocked him out for most of the season. 

Dan Patrick said shoulders or elbows are harder to repair than lower extremities.

Well, Julio's toe screws are still in. I do think lower extremities have a narrower range of motion, so that makes sense.

Tua is good on a supremely talented team, but his ability to "extend" plays is what will actually get him in trouble in the NFL versus a more even talent playing field.  He wants the TD on every play and it forces him in to some terrible mistakes.  With all the Georgia fans here that game was a prime example on the first couple drives, he held the ball instead of making the simple plays multiple times.  Also was a cause of the injury he sustained.
