It was nearly a year ago to the day that I was writing a post about Clinton Portis’ separated shoulder suffered in the second preseason game. What Portis said then still makes perfect sense today (assuming it ever made sense to start with): “Modern day science, man, you don’t need all this.”
Although I suppose I can’t blame nearly losing Jason Campbell — the only reason any Skins fan has to believe we might be .500 — on the excessive number of preseason games. I can, however, blame it on that pile of shit defensive end Brett Keisel. It’s a god damn preseason game and this guy is going for our franchise player’s knee AFTER the ball was already out. Hmm, where have I seen this before from the Steelers? But alas, Steelers fans must deal with the fact that they call Pittsburgh their hometown, so I’ll back off.
Luckily, Jason Campbell is the toughest man alive and only suffered a bruised knee. It looked like he tore every ligament from the waist down when I was watching live. I had already accepted the fact that Mark Brunell would be our starting quarterback and we would go 0-16 this season.
Marcus Washington wasn’t so fortunate. He dislocated his elbow. Let’s get rid of some of these games.
