    Did the one guy we couldn't afford to lose get hurt on a fluke non-contact play in the spring?

    Would having his playmaking, leadership and swagger completely change the dynamic of this team?

    I honestly think if only Polk were healthy we would be 2 and 0.

    He's probably the only one on the team fast enough to catch up to one of Webb's throws that seem to overthrow everyone else by 5 yards

    You're probably right. Things were going well despite the growing pains until he went down.

    So few junior and senior leaders and we might have lost our 3 best without Polk, Rippy and P-Rich.

    Your first question is moot. Yes he got hurt during a non-contact drill. And my dogs ****s in the back yard.

    Your second question. I don't think the gym rat Webb could get him the ball. A deep threat is not a threat if you can't deliver to him. Webb is not a D1 QB. He might be a gamer and all that, but he sucks.

    But Webb has experience, and that should trump everything else.:keule:

    Need a OL that can give the QB at least 3 seconds and a QB that can make plays. Right now we have an OL that can give the QB at most 3 seconds and a QB that at best won't lose the game for you. Everything else on a FB team can be overcome but not those two things so the answer is no, still 0-2.

    Doesn't matter. EB wouldn't get him involved, or if he did, Webb would overthrow him by 20 yards.

    So far, IMO, Polk has been our biggest loss.

    No. As previously stated, Webb is constantly making poor throws. Doesnt give the receivers much confidence to run their routes and trust their quarterback

    We would be 2-0 most likely ,and at least 1-1. We wouldn't be 0-2 that's for sure.

    Three seconds is more than enough time.Webb just needs to be better with his passes. Watching the Broncos game last night they showed footage of big bens paases in the game and he had got the snap and the ball out all around 2 seconds flat for completions. I know that is the NFL, but its all about your timimng.

    Either him or Polk. We could have done without one, but not both

    Probably 1-1.

    Team is too soft with a bad QB to realistically be 2-0 right now with Richardson.

    No, because Webb throws a terrible deep ball.

    I have to agree here. If there is one person getting injured that would have had a impact on those 2 games, its Polk.

    Losing the leader of a very young secondary, and a defense that needs leaders out on the feild, hurt more than not having Richardson at all.
