You can play injured kids at O-Line and D-line because they do not have to cut, break, move, and run full speed. Not at RB and WR. When a kid cannot move and cut and do the things he normally can, now he is at REAL RISK to sustain additional shots. He has to go straight forward and takes direct hits instead of glancing blows because his mobility is limited. As a player, I would lie, cheat, steal, and possibly slit a kid or coach's throat to get on that field in a playoff game. As a coach, I have the responsibility to not only do what is best for my team, but to protect my players from the MACHO crap that says, "Get me in there coach." These kids were not "slightly" injured. They were noticeably limping just walking back to the huddle. Neither of them could go full speed. They were a liability to their team and they were at risk of injury. These are two D-I caliber players who have college futures.Everyone is "hurt" over the course of a season. These two were INJURED. What the hell is so important that a coach lets a kid jeopardize his college career to play in a playoff game for the benefit of his TEAM? We used to have that mentality about concussions. Get some ammonia and get back in there... I might have missed the exact sequence, but it looked like Dennard got hit squared up on the first play of the second half for BCP and fumbled the ball... He was going 50% and #7 for Mountain Pointe was going 100%. A running back has to take on Linebackers and if they are full speed and he is not bad things happen. You protect your kids from themselves. They held him out of the Chandler game over the same knee and he barely played last week. If he was too injured to play the last two weeks, did he suddenly get better? Because I thought when he went off the field in the first QTR, given that he had not played in two weeks due to the same knee injury, you rest him. And you hope he is ready for Hamilton. And that is the logic you use for Allen and Dennard... We need you two healthy for Hamilton and your teammates will do their jobs. We are a team. When one guy goes down another steps up.
Remember...Galileo was once deemed a Heretic...
