according to Mark canninezzo on Cold Pizza.....


"i just got off the phone minutes ago with Herm Edwards and looks like they are going to have to go with Huard because Green is going to be out for the next 3 or 4 weeks"


if correct that would put Green back in around san diego or seattle, i guess.

I have zero problem with that. In fact, I would rather Trent not make his comeback vs. the Steelers AT Pittsburgh.

Exactly, Mr. siberian khatru.

Everyone has said that there is really no way to know when he might return. This speculation has become somewhat tedious.

Given that, I'm wondering if "Downfield Damon" will continue to improve or have we seen him at the top of his game already.

It could be he is another Rich Gannon, career back up who finaly gets his chance.

I'm beginning to get a little nervous about Green's return. On the bright side I think Huard and the D can get the Chiefs a win in atleast 2 of the next 3 games. Should beat Arz and SD at home. If Big Ben keeps playing like Plummer, the Chiefs have a chance at Pitt.

I like the Chiefs schedule the rest of the way.

Trent Green comes back to stand along the sideline & Rich Scalon gets hurt and deactivated. Not saying that Rich is in a Trent Green suit, but if anybody could pull it off....

As long as he is on the sidelines calling plays, that's good enough for me.

Heh.

No conspiracy, though. Just seems to me they don't know when he's coming back. They should just say that, rather than keep pushing it back each time they comment. Maybe they feel an open-ended situation sounds too ominous. But I think the anxiety grows worse when you keep hearing 3-4 weeks every week.

Speaking of conspiracy perhaps Trent is seeing the same DR that Holmes is and he is a closet Bronco's fan.
Trent says Doc I feel great no symtoms since I got out of the hospital. I've had a chance to really study film and have come up with some great plays for when we face Denver again. With the rest I've gotten I feel really refreshed and stronger than when the season started.
Doc says Trent you can never tell about these things it's best that you just stay on the sidelines for at least a few more weeks. Have you given any thought to retirement? And when you see Larry Johnson again ask him to stop by and see me, I saw him take a shot the other day and you never can be too careful.
Nurse steps in, Doctor, Willie Roaf is here for his appointment.

Does Trent need to be at 100% of his normal brain activity to come back, or could he be cleared at a lower level, like, for instance, Jake Plummer's brain activity or even Todd Marinovich's?

damon has the opportunity to go beyond the call of duty this season.

it is quite possible that Trent could be out for more than half the season maybe all of it.

this truly could be a cinderalla story for chiefs fans and sports fans in general. can you imagine Chiefs start off 0-2, make the playoffs, reach the SB and win it with Huard?

that would be right up there with the Bosox's finally winning a World Series after 85 years!

They have been saying that they thought he might be back for Pittsburg, SD is only one week off of that.

Personally, with our O-Line and the Pitts D, I think I'd rather that not be the game Trent comes back for anyway. On the road, rusty, and with our O-Line, I'd rather Pittsburg not be the team Trent comes back to face first time back out.

SD's D could be just as nasty, but that game will be at home instead of on the road and the W against a Div Rival is a tad more important than another AFC Div team. Besides with one loss so far, the Chargers are already bickering at each other and at Marty so who knows where they will be by then.

Besides, by then Huard will either have us in the hunt and will have what it takes to lead us to victory over Pitts or he will have tanked and we won't have much of a shot anyway. I think Huard will be fine though.

With those 2 defenses, do you think it would be smart if the Chiefs just stuck with a conservative gameplan? Like the one they did against Denver?

Id be running the ball, and throwing in some extra, extra blockers.

Dude you are taking that as I was slamming Trent-my favorite player BTW- I was only repeating what I heard. My friend is having surgery to remove his gallblader today by the same doctors office Trent went to. I really hope this fixes his medical problems-he has been in a lot of pain.

As far as privy to the inner workings of TG family-I never once said that. All the info that was overheard was in the first week after it happened-so I am sure cooler heads have prevailed. Hell they were worried about Trent-can't really blame them for thinking he might have been done when he is laying in a hospitol bed with brain swelling.

I wasn't taking it as a slam on Trent. I was taking it as you repeating and repeatedly defending rumors that are completely bunk, and which I tried to tell you were completely bunk.

See the above. You kept saying that his entire family wants him to quit the game because your friend's mom overheard his family urging that. I just found the fact that your friend's mom knows how his family feels to be funny. I realize you think you're being a good guy with all your information, but I'm telling you that there are people on this board that have closer, more reliable sources than yours (and I'm one of them). When your "sources" are putting out information that I know to be patently false, I'm going to step up and call you on it.

Looking at those 2 offenses and the way they are playing right now, if our D plays like it has so far, we won't need many points.

However, I think if I were HC, I might be temtped to open things up more with Huard in there than I would with Trent in his first game back. Fear of Trent getting hurt again would linger in the back of my mind.

I also think if we lock into just running the ball against Pitts and SD, they will do a much better job of shutting LJ down than SF did. We will need to pass the ball around, and keep the attack balanced between the run and pass.

I'm not surprised that the Chiefs are being cautious with Trent's injury. I happen to know most of the Chiefs medical staff, since the majority of them used to be docs at Baptist Hospital in Kansas City, and my dad was a physician there for over 30 years.

Dr. Browne, in fact, did my knee surgery well before he became the chiefs' team doctor. It's not that I "hear" things, these guys are very professional and won't even gossip to their doctor buddies about the health of players. But, I do know these guys aren't the kind of docs that will compromise their duty to the players in the interest of the team.

(Though I HAVE run into players in the elevator while going to see my dad. Before he retired, his office was in the same medical building as most of the chiefs docs)

You're not going to see a player with a concussion strap it up and go in the second half of a game like Deion Sanders did when he was with the cowboys.

Recently, reports came that Brett Favre had a "mild" concussion but is playing next week. That is highly unlikely to happen with the chiefs medical staff.

Halfcan
10-05-2006, 12:35 PM
Call me on what? I never stated it as fact-just repeated what I heard. Since TG is still out-it makes the point that he was hurt a lot worse than the media was stating-and that was EXACTLY my point.

My friend has some serious medical problems and has a lot more important things to worry about than starting rumors.

Overhearing talk in the waiting room is not the same as knowing how the family FEELS-and once again I never said that.

Geez people, Trent had a SERIOUS BRAIN INJURY. He couldn't fricking drive a car for 3 weeks after he was hurt, and claims he still gets woozy after a few hours activity. It is going to be a while, if indeed he ever plays football again. The longer this lasts, the less likely he ever plays again (which is my bet). Counting the hours is frivolous, as I suspect his doctors don't yet know his final prognosis.

Heh. Called out. In all honesty, I (and afaik Trent) has basically the same information as has been put out. Who knows, a doctor may tell him in a week that he should never play again. At this point, no doctor has told him that, and the information that he's receiving from the doctors is being passed on accurately to the media then the public.


What I do know is that there's no inside knowledge that he's hurt much worse than has already been reported and Carl is doing some huge coverup to tantalize the fans. There's no big push from his family to never play again, either, and Trent has every intention of coming back as soon as possible, which it looks like will be 3-4 weeks at this point.
