  • Rep Points For Some Research

    I'll give 88 rep points to whoever researches/answers this question:

    How many of the Rams' major injuries (the guys in IR; J.Smith's concussion) occurred in home games?

    Re: Rep Points For Some Research

    Daniel Fells knee, fractured thigh bone Texans
    C.J. Ah You DE knee Arizona
    Keenan Burton WR torn patellar tendon New Orleans
    Bradley Fletcher CB right knee Indianapolis
    Chris Massey RB knee Indianapolis
    Bradley Fletcher CB right knee Indianapolis
    Gary Gibson DT foot/ankle Minnesota
    Laurent Robinson WR fibula Green Bay


    All these are home games with the names of the teams we played included

      Okay... were the rest (Bulger, J.Smith, Carriker, etc.) all injured in road games (my goal here is to get a percentage of total major injuries at home, so I'll need both home and away data).

      Rep coming your way for the research already done...

        Bulger - vs. arizona
        Jason Smith - vs. Arizona
        Quincy Butler - vs. Houston
        Daniel Fells - vs. houston
        Bradley Fletcher - vs. colts
        Chris Massey - vs. Colts
        Gary Gibson - vs. vikings
        Laurent Robinson - vs. packers

        All those were home I think..and looking at it..damn we had a lot of home injuries that knocked people out for the season..

        Im pretty sure the rest were away including Atogwe and Burton and Little and jacob bell...

        At work, so thought I would do this as a side project

            While the research is ongoing, the pattern I suspected is emerging:

            1. Majority of major injuries at home; and

            2. Lots of leg injuries.

            Certainly, this could be the result of bad luck, but you have to also wonder whether the Rams need to take a long hard look (no pun intended) at their current playing surface at the EJD.

              Good point maybe we should turn the page on GSOT by getting rid of the turf

                I thought part of the pre 2009 season renovations at the EJD included a new playing surface? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

                  I have been seeing this pattern myself since soon after the install, and the only conclusion I can come up with is that maybe the sweat (or other bodily fluids) of the players makes the silica sand/rubber infill slick. A lot of slips and falls have taken place, and when you come down funny, that's all she wrote.

                  Nothing will ever replace natural grass...

                    this is a good post, in order to get the total number of injuries and trying to find out if the turf plays a part someone needs to research the visiting teams injuries also and put them together. if I remember correctly that Rams game is when Kurt Warner had his head bounced off the turf leading to a concussion and I am sure there is more.will be interesting when all the info is collected.

                        Re: Rep Points For Some Research

                        I am pretty sure that the Rams got Field turf 2 or what ever it is called a few years ago.

                        Until then they where playing on concret with a small layer of rubber on it (almost at least). That was one of the fastest turfs but also bad as to fall on (hard and giving burn damage thats why a lot of players taped up there underarms back then).

                        But still seems that we have more injuries at home....

                          Colts and Rams where the last teams to change from Astro turf to field turf.

                          Back in 2005.

                          Super Bowl XXXVI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia search link for astro and get this quote:

                          This game was the last Super Bowl played on antiquated AstroTurf. About a year before the game was held, stadium officials considered bringing in natural grass for the game. The system would use large trays of grass grown and cultivated outdoors, and brought inside to be placed on the field of play. Cost concerns, and the fact that it had never been done before, prompted stadium and league officials to abandon the project. During the 2003 season, the Superdome replaced its AstroTurf surface with AstroPlay, a surface that more closely simulates natural grass. The last two teams to play their home games on AstroTurf, the Rams and the Indianapolis Colts, switched to FieldTurf in 2005.

                            Excellent and tough quiz!

                            I'm not able to research now but there's no doubt that we were again decimated by injuries. By the same token, no doubt the coaches are going to take a very careful look at this recurring M A J O R problem. One among several serious situations for our Rams.

                            Good thought-provoking analysis AV!

                              Ive actually played on that surface (highschool football game), it seemed fine to me. Springy so as not that bad to fall on and your cleats sink into but not too much as to really snag your feet in. This trend of home injuries does seem to be curious but i tend to think its more bad luck. They've also had knee injuries in away games.

                                Add Daniel Fells to the Staggering IR Report..
                                by Bralidore(RAMMODE)
                                "
                                Another Monday, another player to the Injured Reserve list for the St. Louis Rams. Today's entrant is TE Daniel Fells who was placed on IR after a fracture in his thigh and a sprained ligament. Though Fells had just 4 receptions in his last two games - he left late in the first quarter this week - the third year TE was an important part of the Rams injury-depleted pass catchers.
                                CB Quincy Butler has a knee and an ankle sprain that will probably keep him out for the rest of the season, definitely this week.
                                The Rams will activate CB Jonathan Wade for their game against the Cardinals. Jeez. Remember, Wade was a starting CB when the season began, and was gradually replaced by Bradley Fletcher. At first, it just seemed like Fletcher was a better corner, because he was, but then Butler and Justin King got more reps after Fletcher went to IR. Such is life in the NFL...
                                In one other item of interest from the injury report today: OT Jason Smith has not taken another baseline neurological examination. Hmmm. That most likely means he's still experiencing symptoms and is thus close to being shut down for the season, officially or unofficially. That's too bad. I'd really like to see more Smith, but there's no point taking a risk with your investment for two more games of what could very well become a one-win season.
                                For those of you keeping count at home, that's 12 players on IR for the Rams, 9 of those players were starters. Here's the list:
                                • DT Adam Carriker
                                • WR Laurent Robinson
                                • DT Gary Gibson
                                • LS Chris Massey
                                • WR Keenan Burton
                                • FS Oshiomogho Atogwe
                                • OG Jacob Bell
                                • CB Bradley Fletcher
                                • TE Daniel Fells
                                • WR Brooks Foster
                                • DE C. J. Ah You
                                • S Eric Bassey

                                If you include players that could and probably should be put on IR, you've got quite a team."--Courtesy of The Turf Show Times

                                Are the Turf Demons Real?
                                by Bralidore(RAMMODE)
                                Upon reading an article by Will at Ramsherd, Ive begun to wonder yet again if most of the Rams injuries are indeed because of the controversial Turf.

                                Here's a nice list Ive found on the site that details all the injuries the rams have suffered this year from the Preseason and Regular Season:

                                Pre-preseason: Two rookies ó WR Brooks Foster and Safety Eric Bassey ó injure their knees on the brand-new Lindenwood turf during a very light-hitting exhibition game for fans. Itís the same type of turf that is used in the dome. Meanwhile, Adam Carriker badly sprains his ankle on the same field. Preseason: Donnie Avery suffers a sprained foot in practice, while making a cut on the turf. Avery is able to return in time for the regular season opener. Carriker is not so lucky, though, sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury during the Governorís Cup game against the Chiefs.
                                Home Game #1 (Week 3 vs Packers): Laurent Robinsonís season ends on the turf as his ankle gets rolled onto while setting a block. He fractures his fibula and sprains his ankle. Marc Bulger is also removed with a shoulder injury, though he would return to start three games later.
                                Home Game #2 (Week 5 vs Vikings): Gary Gibson, the promising DT who stepped in for Adam Carriker, breaks a bone in his ankle joint during a routine play on the home turf. His season is over.
                                Home Game #3 (Week 7 vs Colts): CB Bradley Fletcher and long snapper Chris Massey both tear up their knees during routine plays and are done for the year. Richie Incognito sprains his foot and misses several weeks, just as Donnie Avery did in preseason.
                                Home Game #4 (Week 10 vs Saints): WR Keenan Burton, the teamís most prolific pass catcher to this point, is lost to a gruesome knee injury in the first quarter, running a simple dig pattern.
                                Home Game #5 (Week 11 vs Cardinals): Before the Rams even get to the game, CJ Ah You is lost for the season to a knee injury sustained on the practice turf. Ah You is the third DT to go down. OJ Atogwe finally returns the favor by bouncing Kurt Warnerís helmet off the turf, sidelining the QB for a game and a half, and breaking his career-long streak of games started. However, karma would bit bite back hard, as Marc Bulgerís season unofficially ends with a tibia bone fracture at the knee joint. Jason Smith also suffers a major concussion that would knock him out for the rest of the season, though he is never placed on IR.)
                                Home Game #6 (Week 12 vs Seahawks): Jason Brown sprains his knee and misses the second half, leaving the offensive line in tatters. And Jason Smith, while merely sitting on the sidelines of this house of horrors, suffers a relapse and has to be hospitalized.
                                Week 13 (At Soldier Field vs Bears): Even though itís not turf, Soldier Field has been called ďthe worst natural grass surface in the league.Ē Atogwe can attest to that, after severely injuring his shoulder while trying to tackle Matt Fo...

                                Owning up to rep reports
                                by bigredman
                                If I have one complaint about the "rep" system is that it doesn't record who made it unless the person has enough integrity to mention who they are in their comment. Why do I bring this up? Recently, I got my first negative rep report over some comment I left for someone else (who thought it was funny, which I confirmed), but this other person cowardly knocked my points down without owning up to it. I live by the motto that one should take a stand, and be honorable enough to personally take responsibility for it. Yes I'm pouting and take responsibility for it.

                                Does anyone give rep points anymore? I often do, but have not received any (good or bad) in a long time. I don't know if my posts have gotten that poor or if I am the only one still using them. Just curious on what others are doing.
