    A kid on this board has a conspiracy theory that the guy signed (Larry) is badly injured and that the Steelers signed him without giving him any kind of physical

    Contrary to common sense and facts provided

    He came to his senses briefly when a couple of clarifying posts were made then he put his tin foil hat back on

    I think he is friends with Benny Lava

    Hey, I don't like the Benny reference, and I've never come to my senses. You thought you had me, and I thought I might have been proven wrong, but upon further review it was just another person misquoting the Gerry Dulac tweet.

    Gerry Dulacs's Tweet is not a statement of fact, this is a state of an assumption. If the Steelers signed Larry Ogunjobi, then we must assume he passed a physical with the team doctors before signing his contract.
    [​IMG]
    Dulac is not stating for a fact that Larry actually took a physical given to him by the Steelers team doctors before signing his contract.

    The longer Larry Ogunjobi sits out the better chance I will have of someone in the media asking the question to a member of the Steelers Organization; "Did the Steelers medical staff give Larry a physical before he signed his contract?"

    I am claiming the answer will be "No, we did not", and everyone else is claiming the answer would be "Yes, of course we did you Idiot!":)

    They are professionals

    They are not going to ask such a dumb question when they know the answer

    I think you are qualified to do that on your own

    You are either a very determined troll or you are really making an ass of yourself.

    You keep pushing this false narrative that every report is based on Dulac's tweet. This is you, while insisting that we assume nothing, making a false assumption.

    Who was the TE from the Chargers (maybe) that had the injury undisclosed or missed by our team??
    IIRC that was pretty shameful.

    Great post( not) You don’t even know the guy’s name and you’ve twisted the facts to try and throw shade on the Steelers. There was no missed injury. They knew the history and took a chance and it didn’t work out. That simple.

    That was after he was already on the team not before. The Steelers knew he had a series of concussions and that he had offseason ankle surgery and was working back to playing shape. He unfortunately took a couple more shots to the head in his limited playing time that first season on the team then he failed the physical the following year when he was released.

    Yes but
    The staff knew. better word i should have used might be "was questionable about the signing when the team knew the history."
    Must consider thinskins

    It's a risk/reward situation. If he had turned into a HOF player the reward far exceeds the risk, if he doesn't heal and you walk away from the deal the risk isn't that great. Better example is Ben the last 2 seasons. Reward far outweighs the risk but the risk was very high to begin with.

    Relax Glemm, i'm not bashing the team. Why do you always question other's fandom? It is relative, kind of like when the topic of Strength and conditioning topic comes up with our team. Like you, I am a fan of the Steelers. Not getting into a pissing contest with you.

    I didn’t question your fandom. Just the silly Tin Foil Hat nonsense.

    Okay thanks. Fair enough. I apologize for not knowing the players name and details immediately. I did remember somewhat that a players physical history was in question before or after a signing. That was all. Lets just have a safe holiday weekend and summer so we are all here come football season and continue the discussions. For the love of all get out I hope it involves SUPER BOWL PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS FOR OUR TEAM!!
    :drinks:
