Thank you very much Dr. Earl.

I think I can offer some perspective to this discussion FWIW.  I have personally had a labral repair/Bankhart repair on my shoulder,  I was a college athlete (baseball player) at the time, and I have 15 years of providing therapy to upper extremity injury patients under my belt. 

Granted, my surgery was on a shoulder that had subluxed (partially dislocated) dozens of times and completely dislocated 3 times, and it was performed in 1994.  Lots of factors involved make Miller's case different than mine (obviously), not the least of which is the fact that I didn't have Dr. Andrews operating on me.  However, Braxton's labrum was likely in better shape (less extensively torn) than mine was, but that is tough to know.  My repair was to my non-throwing shoulder and my shoulder has not dislocated for 21 years now.  KNOCKING ON WOOD VERY HARD!!!

All that being said , there have been many times in those 21 post-op years that I felt my shoulder "give" and I knew that the only thing keeping it from dislocating was the sutures and anchors that are in my shoulder joint.  It's a sickening and comforting feeling at the same time.  

Based on my personal experiences, I would be pleasantly surprised if Miller could complete a football season as a dual-threat QB.  Just my 2 cents.

I remember a story about a confrontation at a C-bus night club about 2 years ago..........thankfully video "vindicated" El Guapo in that case, but I am certainly not going to throw stones without more information in this case.

I put vindicated in quotes because if you watched that video with your eyes slightly Maize-shaded you could say Hyde punched a girl.

Work prohibits me from visiting the site very often during the offseason (I find ways in the Fall), but anytime I see an article written by RN I must read it.  Usually I am pretty happy that I did so.  Today is no different.  Queefcore anthem will be stolen for my personal use.  Thanks Ramzy.

Please get some help 618. There is a lot of it out there and we all need it.

Heuerman's quote about Miller is great.  Love that Braxton took the opportunity to stay engaged in the program through an undoubtedly tough time in his life.

Unless he suffered yet another concussion, or was having headaches, memory loss, double vision, or if he went to the coaching/medical staff and said, "you know what I don't know if sacrificing the health of my brain is worth a few more seasons of football."  We don't know any of that, and after the season seems like the most logical time to have those types of discussions.  

Comment 13 Feb 2015

I don't understand what is odd about it.  He finished the season.  He has a history of concussions.  The end of the season seems like a pretty logical time to think about your future, no?

Comment 13 Feb 2015

We learned of it 3 weeks later, but you can go with whatever narrative you want to portray.  As far as I know he is still a part of the team.  Do you have other information?

Wow, that Deion/Deadspin article is an absolute must read.  Unreal.  Crazy.  Fascinating stuff.
