Is there something wrong with our training staff?

Law of averages catching up. Remember years ago when the team lost 4 of its 5 CBs, and we were calling guys off Fed Ex trucks to play on Sunday.
Nothing wrong with our training staff. Injuries suck but it's part of playing a sport like football.
Did not really read much through this thread but in harbaugh's first year toward the end of the season, an article was written about how a new stretching routine was implemented and attributed to decreasing injuries drastically, up until the end of the season when all the receivers became injured... Maybe that began the curse !!
Football is a rough game. Injuries happen. We are just really unlucky lately.

That was Maurice Hicks. He was a running back, and a really nice player for us.
We need some Aderrall.

It's absolutely a trainers job, imo, to bring that to coaches attention and single out players for warm up only or some other non strenuous status designation.

A fine or other punishment is suitable imo.

What is this about? Who are the players on the team that are partying and getting 2 hours of sleep the night before a practice?

It wouldn't hurt for some of these guys to stay in decent shape all yr round... do a lot of them just wait till camp starts and then they go all out when their bodies haven't done much for months

Jerry Rice could give them some advice...
We should hire the phoenix suns training staff. We'd never an injury ever again

Which 49ers do not stay in shape all year round or haven't done much for months? Please, give us names and details.
yeah van't blame trainers for freak accidents in a contact sport. Willis will be fine. There is a lot of stress on the body esp as it trys to adapt to the rigors of TC. Some players could of been out of shape (crabtree) some just unlucky.
Just listened to #53 on Murph and Mac and he summed it up best, "The formula is here, we know how to get there".

Well, notice this guy ()... I'm not really sure if that is the case, but unless JR was superhuman, why was he hardly ever injured?

I'm wondering if the type of conditioning in the off season plays a part with the body being ready for what TC puts one through.

Then again, could it just be (purely) unfortunate times

I read to mean you did not know why the players did not stay in shape.
