An interesting twist. If he practices, would any sharks start him?

Depends who you are playing over him, but I wouldn't mind having him on my team. On my team I've got Moreno, Charles, and Morris, but I don't think I can start him over those guys. I also have Ballard and I would probably start him over him.

Yeah, I"d start him. He'd get the nod over Bell or Goodson :)

Why in the world would the Jags play him at this point in the season? Foolish.

Ours is not to wonder why. Ours is to hopefully win a freaking championship...or die.

I have him, but I'm going with LawFirm and Moreno instead. My WRs are Megatron, Marshall, and Crabtree in the flex, so I don't think I gamble with MJD, just take the 10-20 from the RBs and hope the WRs continue to pace their offenses.

“When things get tough losers tend to quit,” Jones-Drew said, via PaulKuharsky of ESPN.com. “For me I get paid to play football, if I can go out there and be productive and help my team, I’m all for it. Win, lose or draw whatever the record is, but I won’t go out there and put people at risk …

“And so today is really to make sure everything is like we thought it was the last couple of weeks and kind of validate some things we seen, and if it’s that way we’ll see how it goes throughout the week.”


I applaud MJD for wanting to play, but the Jags as an organization should feel compelled to protect MJD from himself and make sure he's 100% going into the off-season.

Sorry, you're wrong.

If he's healthy enough to play, he should play.

He's a professional. He's being paid.

If there's no significant risk of re-injury--i.e. he has healed--why shouldn't he play?

What is it about this that people don't understand?

I dunno...

Why should he play? What do the Jags actually gain by playing him? Their season has been over, MJD is more or less a known quantity, and he's not young.

Cleared or not, what possible gain is there for the Jags to play him?

Now, you can argue that the team should put out their best players for the sake of the fans, but I think we all know most teams don't think that way. You can argue that they should play him to showcase him for a possible trade, but I don't think most teams need to see him do what he can do, any trade he's going to have to pass the teams physical anyway.

Personally, I say if he feels good he plays. The Jags probably don't care either way, but maybe they want to go out with a bang and try to get a worse draft pick or something :p

Sorry, but in my opinion that is simply a parochial view of this situation. He is not only the best player on the Jags, he is also the face of the franchise and their most marketable commodity. They have a tremendous economic investment in MJD, and as EZV correctly stated they should save him from himself. We can only speculate what the true risk is for re-injury, but suffice it to say said risk would certainly be reduced with a full off season's rest and rehab.

DeMarco Murray returned from a similar injury and he's been fine.

I know every body and every injury is different.

But I stand by my point: if he's healthy, and he wants to play, there just isn't any good reason to shut him down.

Guys get hurt, the sit, they heal, and they play again. What does it matter if it's Week 6 or Week 16?

Some people have season tickets and would be pissed to see their team play like crap instead of starting their best player just because the playoffs are out of reach

And the Jags suck every week anyway...

I get that argument, I just don't think every NFL team really cares about it. Hell last week there were several teams which essentially didn't show up. Did anyone really care?

It happens all the time sadly, worse in the NBA maybe, but happens in the NFL too. NFL draft position mattering as much as it does you wonder why more teams don't tank more than they already do.
