    I can't seem to remember any. I just know that its pretty bad. I was talking to a guy at work who had surgery on his, and he says he isn't and will not be the same again. Since all Chad gets paid to do is throw a ball, I am kinda thinking he is done. I would feel better if I knew of some QB's who had the same happen to them.

    I think Chad will be ok. But still, we should look into drafting a young back up. I mean in mid to late rounds, whats so bad about developing a solid back up.

    I think we need to go to FA 94Abe to salvage next season. I have to admit that I wasn't sold on Chad this season. I like the guy, but his injuries are mounting and are overshadowing his positives. Plus, I dont think he is the most excellent match for our new OC.

    I feel bad for saying this, but as much as I like Chad, I am thinking we just flushed Millions of dollars down the crapper - and that doesnt surprise me ... JETS LUCK, STRIKES AGAIN.

    Relax!!!! I talked to my Orthopedist today about Chad. He will be ready for training camp. With an intense rehab, his shoulder will probably be stronger than it was before.

    Billy Volek just had successful surgery on his cuff.

    Rob Johnson has had surgery.

    Jeff Garcia is dealing with a bad sprain.

    Jay Feidler will need surgery on his non-throwing arm.

    Jim Miller...surgery.

    Kevin Mawae, lest we forget, had a major cuff reconstruction.

    A ton of Pitchers have had cuff surgery.

    It's not uncommon, and likely will give him better strength and range of motion than he had since he initially strained it in his rookie season trying to match Vinny's long throws in practice. It's a good thing, so lets not shoot ourselves yet.

    Your forgeting the one Player most relevant to this discussion, Tom Brady had the surgery last summer. He seems to have recovered nicely, Cad should to, but the Jets may want to see if they can add some muscle to that thing while there at it. ;)

    All signs point to him beng back by camp. It is important to note that if pitchers can come back, Qbs can EASILY come back. If a pitcher loses even 1/100th of their original velocity or a little of their "stuff", they are screwed. W/ a QB that is not as important /c losing that 1/100th of their "stuff" wouldn't even be noticable.

    R Gannon tore his labrum in 2oo3 and his arm was alot stronger in 2004 before suffering ,probably a career ending broken neck. From what i read Labrum is alot more serious injury than Rotator cup.
