As for the "always injured" mantra that is drummed up about every other month from those who actively cheer against Battle, for the 1000th time,
THIS IS A STUPID STATEMENT!!!
The guy played in 42 consecutive games before his injury last year.
42 CONSECUTIVE GAMES!!!
Always hurt!! Brilliant!
P.S. I'm missing all of the "David Baas is hurt again" threads. Somebody hiding them?
Your belittling of other posters is getting a little out of hand. Do you have some inside issues maybe that when you complain about others, it makes you feel better? We can pray about it.
I don't know if you are new to the board, but the anti-Battle threads have a long history on the board. He drops a ball in one game, a new anti-Battle thread emerges. He is in contention for a position at WR, he sucks. He gets dinged and has to sit out one meaningless preseason game, and people want to scrutinize his injury, as if no other player ever gets injured.
The cheap pot shots on Battle are old, boring, and show a level of bias that nearly borders on insanity. We've burnt this bridge on this subject countless times, and the same anti-Battle people emerge from their caves every once in awhile to be humiliated again and again.
My greatest contention is when people refer to Battle as "always injured". When confronted with the fact that he played in 42 consecutive games before missing the second half of 2008, they point back to previous injuries four and five years ago to attempt to buttress their ridiculous argument.
So, if people want to take their cheap shot at Battle, I simply respond with the truth. If the truth has some bite to it, so be it. There is no excuse to parrot mindless thought.
