Mike Iupati

I think he's playing soft this year.. he's not the usual player that he suppose to be..

could it be that he's trying to be healthy so that he can command the top dollar next year's Free Agency, or simply thinking that he could be the biggest catch in the pond next year??

Remember, the guy didn't wanna re-do his contract w/ the team.. already getting a bad advise from his agent..
He is playing with a shoulder/neck injury let this man heal and he is tops, all pro pissing off opposing dc's! Just the way we love it
Goniners.... We may be able to extend em for lil less. Doubt it tho cause he is playing injured. And its no secret there are players unwilling to do this! Not saying they on our team. No offense to jonas jennings but unsure if he would be playing injured like iupati is at the moment!
Idk obviously injury is a concern Id be all for letting em heal up for a bit. But alot of these things aren't going away after 2-3 weeks.

Where do you get this from? Link?
He had shoulder surgery while at Idaho in 2008 which held him out of the first two games of the season. Maybe tweaked the old injury?

When i saw he had shoulder surgery again in the off season it worried me slightly that maybe and likely it was the same shoulder.

Wonder if Iupati's recent underwhelming play due to injury, makes his next contract a little more appetizing to the FO?
Nobody pays top dollar for free agent guards.

Tackes? Yes. Left tackles are a commodity in this league. Staley commands a nice contract. But while Iupati is VERY good, don't ever think he can't be replaced. Because, he can be.
Dude isn't that good. He's gonna want like 50 mil... fuq that.
Any update in his injury?
I think he has gotten hurt like 5 times this season and he's really banged up and probably not healed yet. Maybe it is still that shoulder from this offseason he had surgery on. I'd wait until into next year to sign him to see if he is back to his 2010-2012 self. Right now no way I give him 40 mil even. Guy loves it here, he's from humble beginnings needs to get his agent out of the way and be happy with 5 years 30-35. Anyways, his agent sees the other guys and probably says we can get 50. So I'd wait until next season but at this point I'd rather give Crabtree 45-50 mil than Iupati 40 mil but I'd wait on both and work on it half way into next season.

He definitely hasn't been healthy this season. Iupati's a tough SOB though. He'll play through pain for the team.

Ugh, sprained MCL. Wouldn't be surprised if he's out until the Falcons game.
