I'd hate to think that by naming players to the pre-season All-Mack team that it would have some sort of Madden-esque curse on them, but that's pretty much the size of it at this point. Fans from many of these players' school might request that I discontinue after this season. Let's take a look at the All-Mack team members who have been effected this season.
QB - Tim Tebow: suffered a nasty concussion vs. Kentucky. There are conflicting reports about his condition. As of right now (3:18 pm CST on 10/6/09) ESPN's Joe Schad reports via Twitter that Tebow is in full pads headed to the practice field. While other reports say that he still can't focus enough to read yet. I pray that this doesn't end tragically.
RB - Jahvid Best: Putting up monster numbers, but his team has layed two eggs and it's pretty much curtains on a Heisman campaign.
WR - Arrellious Benn: Team sucks. His QB Juice Williams who's been starting for what seems like forever has been given the hook.
WR - Julio Jones: Has missed virtually two games due to a banged up knee and because of that banged up knee, he's unable to get separation from the double & triple coverages that he's seeing. His team and teammates are doing great, but thus far, Julio's production is way down.
TE - Jermaine Grisham: He was the first one. Banged up his knee in pre-season practice and never played a snap this season. His collegiate career is all but over as he's already said that he's foregoing his senior year to enter the NFL Draft.
CB - Trevard Lindley: Banged up his knee vs. Alabama and is pretty much week-to-week at this point.
I'm crossing my fingers and holding my breath that everything will work out from this point.
