So we're going to go with gross incompetence instead of recklessness?

Seriously - a strained ACL is pretty easy to figure out. Is there instability in the joint? Even if Berry lies - you can manipulate a knee to figure that out.

It was a failure by the staff. Did it make a difference? Who the hell knows - maybe it was already blown. But it was still pretty ridiculous.

They should have known. No question about it.

In that case, it seems to me, that apparently, they didn't suspect an ACL injury because they let him go back out. Wouldn't you agree?

That doesn't jive with everyone's desire to string Stevie Johnson up from Liberty Memorial. It's his fault, you know.

To think, this was probably the most excited I'd been heading into a Chiefs season in a while. I loved the draft. I loved the Breaston, McClain and Gaither signings. Hated the Muir promotion, but loved the Zorn hire.

Then our preseason dampered my excitement, and yesterday's peformance plus Berry's injury has pretty much killed it.

According to NFL.com, Berry didn't tear his ACL on the Stevie Johnson play AT ALL. It happened on a completely different play. Stevie didn't do it, so stop with the controversial block crap.

I can't post links, so you'll have to copy and paste.

nfl.com/videos/nfl-network-around-the-league/09000d5d8222c2b7/Chiefs-lose-Berry-for-the-season

Somebody should make a thread. I'm not allowed.

Well because NFL.com said it, then it must be ****ing true.

Or you know, maybe we could all wait for a doctor to tell us or even Berry his ****ing self.

The fact is, no matter who's fault it was, he went back out, be it of his own accord or perhaps the training staff blew it. The end result is the same. He's done for (at least) the year. For all we know, the trainging staff had their heads buried in the sand to keep from watching any more of The Christians vs. The Lions on the field.

A lot of folks are assuming that it was even strained by the Johnson hit.

Then again, it's apparently much more fun to blame the opposition for his injury than accept that his knee buckled on a non-contact play.

I remember after the zorn hire, then after the draft, being incredibly excited.

Then Babb released his first Bill Muir puff piece and I remembered that Muir was our offensive coordinator.

I was immediately sad again. It was a flood of realization that hammered me after several weeks of optimism. I had simply forgotten that Muir was the OC. Then came the pre-season and our 'training camp'.

By yesterday, I went into the day with the expectations of grilling some kickass garlic/spicy chicken wings (great success!) and watching a mediocre football team (fail: this team would kill to be mediocre).

So what is it, precisely, that you're trying to say again?

Yes, I am aware that Berry blew his knee out and is gone for the year. Water is, in fact, wet.

You seem content with repeating that fact and saying that you have no idea who/why/what contributed to it. Okay - if that's the case - just don't talk.

And you and a lot of others are assuming the ACL was damaged on that play.

It could have just as easily been a knee bruise/contusion.

Which makes a helluva lot more sense than him blowing out his knee, getting worked on by the training staff and being allowed to go back out and play.

Pretty farfetched to claim the Johnson hit had nothing to do with it. Johnson drilled the same knee that buckled the very next time he put weight on it.

I mean lets face it - if I hit you in the head with a bat and you walk away clutching your dome, that's going to draw eyes my way. Later that night, if you die of brain aneurysm with me nowhere near you, there's a safe bet that me whacking your ass with a club had something to do with it.

C'mon - lets at least use some logic here. There's a 95% chance that Johnson's hit on Berry played a very significant role in Berry's injury.

A knee bruise would cause you to blow out your knee on the next play? Without that hit Berry doesn't tear his ACL.

:facepalm:

How many guys have blown out an ACL with no prior injury before? Too many to count.

Watch the play again. That could just as easily have happened had he not been cut blocked the play before.

The gif actually starts as Berry is planting the leg in question - it doesn't buckle there, but the next time he plants his left foot.

I'd be interested to see the entire play, and see how he looked as he was running back onto the field and prior to the buckle.

It raises my blood pressure every time I think of that old **** up in the booth calling plays. It was such a stupid hire considering 1) he's 70 years old, therefore isn't a long term solution which is what we needed considering we've had 3 offensive coordinators in 3 years, and 2) he sucks.

You're being ridiculously irrational.

You have ZERO proof that Johnson's hit weakened Berry's knee.

"Limping" doesn't automatically equal structural damage, FFS.

All I'm saying is that there is no proof whatsoever that the hit caused the blowout - on a later play.

Then again, I'm not ignorant of the fact that fluke shit (like Welker's injury, which looked eerily similar to Eric's) happens in professional sports. Enjoy your scapegoating.

I'm assuming not, because you'd know why MRI's are requested even if the injury is properly diagnosed.

Fuck, even a High School trainer can manipulate a knee to hell if an ACL is torn.

The MRI is used to check the severity of the tear, and to check for other structural damage.

Um....yeah, pretty much.

More accurately, I think they were desperate and saw what they wanted to see. They fell victim to confirmation bias.

Berry came over w/ his dinged knee. He told them that he felt sore but wanted to go back in. They took his word for it, gave him a cursory look-over, saw that the Bills were about to score a TD less than a minute into the home-opener w/ their best player on the sideline and said "Looks good to me..."

It was a 'heat of the moment' mistake made under time/competitive constraints by a staff that didn't do it's job terribly well. How is that any different than Cassel throwing to the wrong guy because he mis-read the coverage under duress?

Ultimately it came down to one individual giving the thumbs up. With so much chaos and maelstrom, and being a critical moment in the home opener for a team that just made the playoffs, that individual made a very poor judgment call and sent Berry out there.

I think that scenario is much more likely than Berry getting blasted in the knee then having the same knee coincidentally pop the very next time he took the field.

Wow. Can't go there, man, but have fun.

Medical professionals make mistakes fairly frequently. They make a LOT of mistakes when their patients aren't forthright with them. They make even more mistakes when they have all of about 1 minute to make a diagnosis.

Sorry, but I've seen Blaine Gabbert fire footballs into defensive backs with no explanation. I've seen baseball players try to bunt for a base hit with the bases loaded and 2-outs. I've seen people do really stupid things under the strain of competitive pressure and time limitations.

I think human error by a trainer is far far more likely to be what we're looking at here than a mere strong coincidence.

This, and they do wonders with that type of injury these days. He will be back, but it always sucks to lose a key player any time of the year. In a loss first game sucks.

On soft grass?

If it's a high-speed cut on turf, I guess. But combine the previous hit with the fact that the non-contact injury came on a soft field and at relatively low speeds (he wasn't exactly flying to the line there) and it seems like one scenario is significantly more likely than the other.

If the patient won't give you details, that's not "making a mistake." Health care professionlas have to work with the information they are given. If further testing is obviously needed, it should get ordered, when at all possible. Patients have the right to refuse treatment and testing. It's the law.

But it seems like the fans were willfully ignorant here. Had I seen that clip last night, there wouldn't have been much question in my mind.

That was as clear as day: catastrophic knee injury. And since it was a lateral blowout, the ACL was most likely.

I think we had a lot of fans last night that just didn't want to face the horror for another 18 hours.

Well, what are the facts?

1) Berry was hit on the left knee and left the field.

2) Berry returned and had that same knee give out.

Which is more likely?

1) It was a fluke that the same knee gave out and would have without the hit?

2) Some damage was done by Johnson's block to the same knee that gave out?

Wear and (pardon the pun) tear is a factor. I had a coworker tear her ACL when she simply planted her foot to make a normal every day turn on the floor at a normal rate of walking speed.

How many guys have blown out an ACL with no prior injury before? Too many to count.

Watch the play again. That could just as easily have happened had he not been cut blocked the play before.

The gif actually starts as Berry is planting the leg in question - it doesn't buckle there, but the next time he plants his left foot.

I'd be interested to see the entire play, and see how he looked as he was running back onto the field and prior to the buckle.

http://uranus.ckt.net/~gochiefs/knee.gif

It looks to me like his left knee gave out the first time he planted it. It almost hit the ground, and he did not go down immediately. He went down when he tried to plant again.

Nano seconds, and millions of times of him doing it, he made one more attempt.

I dunno about that.

The Steelers are a completely different defense without Polumalu and you can make an argument that they have one of the best front 7s of the last 1/4 century.

Imagine the Ravens if Lewis goes down.

When the absolute best player on your defense drops over, especially if he's pro bowl caliber and you don't have a replacement of any value for him, your team is in a world of shit.

Historic teams like the 16-0 Patriots can deal with stuff like that. But "High-quality" teams aren't going to take that shot terribly well. The line between success/failure in this league is just too narrow for a team to lose their best player and keep humming.

Jackson is a JAG, so the fact that he's a warm body is as productive as he'll ever be.

Berry: injured.

Baldwin: better damn well contribute. If he doesn't, it will be impressively disappointing.

I'm talking about just this season. If Baldwin comes in after missing a whole off season and most of the pre season I'd be very surprised. Your comment about Pioli is now looking like truth. One i'm not sure most fans can swallow.

Tell that to the Steelers. Their defense goes to horse shit every time Troy gets injured.

Or the Colts.

Dog-ass defense without Bob Sanders that tore shit up during their playoff run when he was healthy.

The worst part about that guy?

Is there anyone here that doubts for a second that he's happy that Berry got hurt?

A douche like that doesn't give a fuck about his teammate. This is the same guy that said he didn't get a fair shake in TB last season when he was one of the least productive players in football and said that it was rigged when he got cut.

There's little doubt in my mind that this guy's grin was a mile-wide when he heard the news.

To help NFL players understand their responsibility regarding player safety, this section contains clarifications and illustrations highlighting several of the League's unnecessary roughness and roughing the passer rules that are in effect. This is not a complete list of the rules. You are strongly advised to familiarize yourself with the more detailed and comprehensive descriptions contained in the NFL Rule Book and in particular the acts constituting unnecessary roughness and roughing the passer, detailed in Rule 12, Section 2, Articles 8 and 13.

Rule 12, Section 2 also contains other important player safety rules that are not specifically illustrated or clarified in this section. Included in Rule 12, Section 2 of the NFL Rule Book, and also of vital player safety importance, are the illegal chop block rules (Rule 12, Section 2, Article 16). In addition, it is not legal to clip in close line play, unless the block from behind is above the knees. Also if a blocker in close line play rolls up from behind on the back of a defender's legs, it is a foul for unnecessary roughness (Rule 12, Section 2, Article 9). For this reason, it is vitally important that you become familiar with all the Player Conduct rules found in Rule 12 of the NFL Rule Book.

After him extending the contracts of Hali, DJ and Charles within the last year along with signing Breaston and a bunch of other quality free agents...how can you say he is cheap with a straight face anymore?

2/3 of his drafts have yielded more talent than any other team has during that same span as well.

He also brought in the coaches that have gotten the best out of the little talent that was already in house.

Calling him overrated because of poor depth at a couple positions takes balls.

I don't know the two second rounders were "blown". I don't like Arenas, but McCluster might be one of our better offensive weapons this year.

Moeaki is good. I don't care that he's out this year. He's shown that was a worthwhile pick. Asamoah has struggled a bit, but I think he'll improve into a solid starting guard. Lewis is good value, and Sheffield looks promising. It was more than a one player draft.

I do think about that, and I think thank goodness the last few drafts of Peterson were so good. I don't blame Pioli because he inherited several very good players. Was he suppose to cut them and start over?
He's adding to that core. 2009 was an awful draft, but he's followed it up with a very good draft, and another that could be good as well.

If you want to run Pioli you'll have to wait several years. GMs aren't hired and fired season to season like coaches. They get many chances. Pioli will out last Haley, and probably the coach after that.

you people make no sense - recall that as awesome as berry is, that he sucked balls in coverage. remember that, doomsayers, berry ball lickers. he gave up tds at an alarming rate. i love the guy, but this is not the end of the world.

thats pure foolishness.

Any of the three are debatable as a better player to Berry, but none of them would be foolish to debate about.

Charles is a somewhat fragile back that turns over the ball in some really crucial situations.

Hali has had one really good year out of five and is a bit one dimensional. He is also slow in the open field and is probably limited to being a pass rusher only.

Flowers is the best of the three IMO but has lost games to injury every year and is size and speed limited.

Berry is equally as good against the pass and run and is a huge playmaker with potential to be the best in the league at his respective position.

I don't think it's as big a stretch as you may think to say that Berry was on his way to being our best player (if he wasn't already)

He had all but solved that problem by the end of the year. He was everywhere in the playoff game. For most, by the end of the season the best safeties in the nfl were Reed and Polamalu with Berry the next in line.

All 3 of those guys aren't as good as Berry. And none are more important to the team.


LOL

Yeah Hali sucks. Just because you might not have cared for him does not mean he is less important.

I met his dad and him once, was on the way to the dreaded Indy game. They both had so much heart, I never thought we could lose.

Maybe Berry had too much heart to quit when he needed. I love ballers but there is a reason they are few and in between.

We still have a backfield consisting of jones, mccluster, and McClain.. Yes it would be a stepback, and but not near as big as we are about to experience

I guess we shall see. But looking back to last year, Berry (as a rookie, noted) wasn't nearly as important as hali, charles or flowers in getting us to the playoffs. And I see no reason why, injury or no injury, it would be different this year. (Look, the guy is a ridiculous talent, but he isn't the Chiefs defense, he just isn't.)

If Charles were to get hurt, McCluster and McClain could probably sustain the running game and keep it effective.

If Hali were to go down, Houston and Sheffield could continue to give the team a good pass rush.

We just got a taste of how much we are gonna miss Berry.

He got beat a lot early last year, but by years end he was solid as fuck in coverage.

Losing Moeaki and Berry are absolutely crippling blows to both sides of the ball.

He was the only player to play every defensive snap last year. Your stance is decent but your take on it sucks.

You watch and see just how important Berry was to this team. And I'm not just talking about the safeties. Flowers, and Carr will both be beat more often now.

Remember that TD catch from Johnson on Flowers? That doesn't happen with Berry coming over the top.

McGraw was slow and out of position like usual.

It's gonna be a rough season.

With Berry being out, our corners will be playing too far off as a result as well.

These are some phantom ACL tears. EB was walking with a VERY SLIGHT limp after the injury. Moeaki was standing upright on the sideline after his supposed ACL tear. Before this, when Brady limped off the field after he tore his- I thought that was insane. Usually ACL tears demand a guy being carted off and a lot of screaming.

ok, why is berry more important to this team than charles, hali and flowers?

Berry is one of the top 2 or 3 safeties in the game. In last year's playoff game he was the best player on the field.

Charles is great, Hali is great, Flowers is great. None of them have the impact on this team that Berry does. And all of them have backups that are pretty good as well, except Berry.

Losing Berry, for this team, is worse than losing anyone else, including Suck Assel.

Berry is not a top 2-3 safety. It is true though that in last year's playoff game, he was playing at a Polamalu level.

Charles, Hali and Flowers all have a similar impact to Berry on this team and were arguably all better than Berry last year (this year I was expecting Berry to probably become just as good as those three).

Losing Berry I think will hurt this team a lot for the rushing defense and covering the TE as our backups are marginal. McGraw can have his good moments but overall he's a bad player.

IMO, the only way to make up for Berry's loss is that Tyson Jackson steps up hig game big time for the rush defense, Justin Houston provides plenty of pressure as he was doing in preseason and Kendrick Lewis who was good last year takes the next step and become at least an average safety in this league. Probably won'thappen.

Yes a rook makes or break. I like Berry but he has not been asked to trade positions, schemes. etc.

I agree he has heart but not the "heart" IMO.

I mean gifted through life versus surviving life.

You are right, no comparison.

Sorry Berry lovers, its a fact.
