I've played with all kinds of injuries simply because I could. The reality is, that's incredible stupid and will come back to haunt you as you start getting older.

Looking back on it, he was probably like "Hey, I'm the #1 option, I just signed a huge contract, and the team already has had bad luck in terms of injuries. I'm just gonna play until things get really bad" The problem is he didn't realize that things would get this bad so fast. It's ****ed up because Allen has done a good job IMO building that organization up. Things like this can completely ruin a franchise.

Could NOT agree anymore.
