  • Russ says he's "Ready to roll"

    We all know that hamstring injuries linger. At the very least they should sit him until after the bye. More so in Russ' case since he needs his legs to be effective in the passing game. This decision has to be taken out of Hackett's hands, since his job is likely dependent on the outcome of this game. Thoughts?

    Who cares anymore. I hope Russ gets hurt enough to retire.

      Dude, only the lowest form of life asks for injury. Please don't be that guy.

    Of course he’s going to be good to go.

    This is it.

    Seasons on the line, 3-5 with 2 weeks to prepare for the Titans vs 2-6 with a probable fire sale/staff changes.

      The visceral hatred is starting to get kinda crazy on this board. Some of the things being said are a tad out of line

          Wilson’s literally only been a Broncos for a few months. He was hated by this fanbase before due to the SB beat down.….as was Carroll.

          some in this fanbase wanted DT injured because he dropped a pass. People celebrated Teddy B injury.


          Wilson deserves the hate, especially with the off field look at me approach. I don’t want the dude injured…just want him gone.

          PFM was more hated in this fanbase than almost anyone...

          Turned around pretty quick. Probably not among Chargers fans, granted.

              So if he were to retire, what does that mean for his contract, and Denver's obligation?

              If he bails, we're free, right?

                Fair enough....and don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to chastise anyone about it. It is the internet after all. But it just seems to be reaching a point where it's like "hey, it is just a game at the end of the day" and I don't see the need to hate someone as a person. You can hate them as a player, but the injury stuff and the "r-word" being thrown around about his mental game is just rough to read

                  Not exactly.



                  Teams can end a contract at any time, but so can players. In a player's case, though, the only way they can do this is by retiring. In the end, though, the math looks pretty much the same as if the player had been cut -- and the June 1 rule applies here, too.

                  For instance, if our player from the example above had retired instead of being cut, his money would account the same way as if he had been cut by the team. If he files his retirement paperwork on or after June 1, the money counts as if he was cut on or after June 1.

                  Just like anything else in the NFL, though, there is a "but" for this rule, too: if the player retires with time remaining on his contract, then chooses to come back into the league later, he is not a free agent. Contracts apply, in most cases, to accrued seasons, not calendar years. If the player doesn't play, he doesn't accrue a season. Therefore, his return to the field would put him back under the control of the same team, unless that team chooses to cut him. This rule is part of the reason why Barry Sanders chose to retire: the Lions refused to cut him, and he decided he'd rather stop playing altogether than play another season for Detroit. Conversely, Brett Favre retired, and then the team chose to cut him while he was retired. He was then able to return to the league later as a free agent.

                  Okay, there are actually two "buts" for retirements. When a player retires, the team has the option to pursue the return of a portion of the signing bonus equal to the unplayed portions of the contract, and that money is no longer counted against the salary cap. This is typically done through an arbitrator. This is known as the "Barry Sanders Rule" because this is exactly how the situation played out in his case, as he was required to pay back a portion of his bonus. The difference between now and then is there was no precedent when Sanders played; now, it's explicitly written into the CBA to allow for this arbitration

                    There is no way he should play until after the bye, the season is shot, no reason to push him at this point. Let's send Hacking Packing, and begin to think about next season and have a healthy Russ the rest of the year...

                      I also don't like Russ. But, we are stuck with him because our great GM.

                      Hoping that he play well. Regarding Hackett, it's a different story. Not even sure how he was hired in the first place.

                            Yes hate the player but not the person. Wishing injury on anyone except Tom Brady is jut not ok.

                              No one should get injured. Maybe people think that’s the only way to get out of the contract, cause I don’t see him retiring… I’ve never called him the rword I just point to how he’s lost the ability to see/read a field.


                              some older QBs just drop off a cliff and lose their abilities in one season…he’s looking to be in that group so far.

                                    Thinks he can carry the weight of the ring, but Marshawn was his Frodo. I was hoping Williams would be ours. Maybe next year...

                                      🤣🤣🤣. Some of you take a statement to mean something it doesn't. I didn't say I wanted Russ injured. I said I wanted him hurt enough to decide to retire. For example his hamstring. I hope that hurts him enough to want to retire.

                                      Now of course it won't. Lol, some of you get off your high horse's.

                                          Dude answered by reshifting the aim by debating the meaning of the word "is" and made everyone go... "Wait... I think he's right. "is" just means "is"

                                          Bill Clinton:

                                          "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is. If the... if he... if 'is' means is and never has been, that is not—that is one thing."

                                          That guy was the real tapdance master.

                                        You do know there is a difference between being hurt and being injured right? If you don't, just say so.
