which is true. his injury would be much more devastating for a WR/QB rather than a DL.

He's definitely going to have to always play on the left side. With a stub of a thumb and no index finger he'd have a harder job grabbing a guy outside of him on his right side.

That's true, of course. But linemen do use their hands a lot in blocking or trying to fend off blocks, and (somewhat less likely) I can imagine that for some people it could throw off their balance or leverage coming out of a three-point stance. Never having played defensive line at a level beyond undergrad intramural flag football, I don't have a great sense of how much of issue it likely will or won't be.

Also, I can think of plenty of times when a lineman's ability to reach out and grab the QB or RB makes the difference between whether or not he makes the tackle.

It has to hurt his play at least somewhat. Maybe not too much, but I still think he was stupid to be playing with fireworks.

Is it just me, or has the NFL become virtually unwatchable because of the toxic levels of Matthew McDouchaghy Lincoln commercials? FFS.

At least he has ~ 5 different versions of it

I'll take the W, but I think the Patriots tried to get a bit too cute a couple times. Almost burned them.

Ok, this Eagles-Cowboys game is putrid. Eagles O-line is totally incompetent.

RIP Romo's clavicle.

Dolphins lost to Jaguars. I cringe at the cesspool that local sports talk radio will be tomorrow morning (I don't plan to tune in)
