Bucs Vita Vea hurt...again

40 posts in this topic

I was one of the many TATF'ers that wanted to draft this dude. Seemed like the perfect DQ guy for his system! He hasn't seen the field much in his short NFLcareer.

Hate to see any guy get hurt... Hopefully he is OK.

Big guy + knee problems= potential disaster

Counterpoint: Injuries are part of the game. When it is a division rival, that's good for us so I will take it.

Vea may need to lose some weight to help him stay healthy and put less stress on his body.

 

Playing a career at almost 350lbs is not really a good thing. It will eventually wear on him, probably already doing so.

I said he was going to be a bust when everyone wanted to draft him. I got creamed for it.

So you somehow knew beforehand he would be having these freak injuries? Quite Impressive....

unfortunately for him and Bucs, Vea is looking like Peria Jerry 2.0.

Nah man.  Injuries trump football.  Hope the young man has s quick and full recovery

It's built into the game. Bad luck, sure, but it is going to happen. When it happens to our opponents, it's an advantage.

And you said that based on what, knowing he would have injuries two years in a row during training camp?

Man, that sucks for him and for them.

He's their version of Peria Jerry.

(edit: his full name is Tevita Tuliʻakiʻono Tuipulotu Mosese Vaʻhae Fehoko Faletau Vea (holy ****)

Very different scenario than saying he was a bust on the field. He is the guy I wanted too based on ability. Glad we didn’t get him seeing how things played out.

I don't know the guy. As far as I am concerned he's a character on a TV show.

Yeah and when those soldiers died in Iraq and Aghanistan, it was just like a Call of Duty game. Didn't know the people...

Things alright at home? Or is this just how you are?

Man, that poor dude really can’t seem to catch a break. Very unfortunate.

Reminds me of Spoon. A grip of potential, but just can't stay on the field. Hate seeing this for dudes...like 80% of their NFL careers are practice and rehab. Bummer.

He’s caught plenty of strains and tears. I feel for him. I wonder if he came back sooner to impress the new regime.
