49ers DE Nick Bosa tears ACL; Out for season

Recommended Posts

Next week's Giants-Niners game is going to be without Saquon, Bosa, Garappolo, Sherman, Shepard, Solomon Thomas, and Mostert. Unless you're a big fan of the funny podcast guy QB, you should probably tune into a different 1pm game.

One of the main reasons why sustaining success in the NFL is just so difficult. It's just so random in terms of injuries. Now the biggest strength of SF from last year, the DL, suddenly looks pedestrian.

We can’t be rash about the rash of injuries, but the NFL and NFLPA must study these especially closely. The kneejerk reaction to the injury epidemic—torn ACLs for certifiable stars Saquon Barkley and Nick Bosa on Sunday, and lesser injuries could keep Jimmy Garoppolo, Drew Lock, Anthony Barr and Davante Adams sidelined for a week or more—is that without preseason games and normal training camps, players enter the season less used to contact and top speeds than usual. Could be. In the case of the 49ers injuries, the NFL should also look into the turf at MetLife Stadium.


think one other thing has to be considered: the loss of a legitimate offseason program, with organized and enforced strength and conditional and speedwork for nine or 10 spring weeks. That vanished this year. Teams trusted players to work out on their own. For the Tom Bradys, workout and health freaks, it’s a given they’ll find a way to get in their work. But I recall a story from the summer, with Austin Ekeler of the Chargers telling me he’d go to a local California park and do chin-ups on the same monkey bars schoolchildren use at recess. Nothing wrong with that, but it’s not the kind of conditioning NFL players are used to.

Peter King on the injuries.

I watched the Chargers/Chiefs highlights, heard Bosa's name shouted from the broadcaster with glee and I got depressed.

That's how I feel when I see "Jets win" and they're talking about the hockey team in Winnipeg.

I have to think S/C coaches used Zoom and other technologies to monitor and manage workouts...

I mean, right? There's more oversight to Strength/Conditioning coaches than letting a guy go do pullups at the park and calling it conditioning?

You would think so. But many NFL teams didn’t even know how to Zoom until Covid forced them to.

Who is Alton Smith? Is that Aldon's younger brother?

And I'm willing to guess that the answer to that is probably is nah, that's okay. He's doing fine where he's at

Alton Smith loves getting after the QB and making homemade donuts.

Teams had training camps. And several teams barely play their starters in pre-season.

But I do think this exposes some coaches (were they harping on guys to get in shape on their own?) and some players (do they actually do it?)

But mostly this just seems random.
