"Yes, he was banged up throughout the season. He got hurt in Week 1, played through it the rest of the season," Jones-Drew said. "He got banged up in Week 1, he played through it, and he kind of just got worn down toward the end of the season."

We don't know what Gurley told MJD but what MJD says isn't a mysterious riddle that needs dissecting and interpreting. As I already said, this could be just as much spin as what the Rams have already released up until now. But flat out proclaiming that MJD is wrong and misunderstands is the problem. That implies that YOU know better.

It's fine to guess or try and connect the dots but you're not doing that. The choices aren't limited to what you've come up with either. MJD doesn't have to be wrong or misinformed, he could just as easily be trying to paint a positive picture for the future. A banged up knee that hampered him and wore down over the course of the year sounds more appealing than a chronic condition that has to be managed. Which doesn't automatically equate to the Rams "lying" about what happened to Gurley last year.

Why would you think you "know" what's really going on because of some press releases? Or that your guesswork is more reliable that MJD speaking directly with Gurley about it?

We disagree. In the process, I didn't make it about you. I disagree directly with the claims MJD made and said why at length (none of which you responded to). This is not a personal issue.

I stand by what I said (which has very little to do with what you seem to think you responded to.) As I said: "The way this adds up to me, looks like MJB took TG playing hurt in game 1 (which we already knew about) as actually getting an injury in game 1 (which right now is a completely new claim). Since to me MJB'S version makes no sense, I am naturally inclined to accept the one that does make sense."

Done. Not with the issue though. cool smiley



....
I don't know how you're adding anything up. You don't know if MJD is speculating or relaying what Gurley directly told him. And that's on top of you specifically saying that MJD got it wrong and misunderstood. You're mind-reading and guessing and passing it off as fact. Since it is you who is doing that, then yes, in that regard it is personal.

It's all just coming off as someone who's being a know-it-all which is annoying when that position is based on nothing. Repeatedly claiming that we "know" anything about the situation is baloney. We know what they've released to the press. That you'd put any kind of faith in that is downright perplexing.
