Did Hammonds have or did he not have
« on: November 05, 2017, 10:00:42 pm »

Meniscus surgery in August this year. If so he could have been required to avoid walking for 1-6 weeks with or without crutches depending on the degree of injury. If he did injure the knee I would expect that he missed a great deal of practice as a wide receiver.
I don’t think anyone could have predicted the loss of two of our three running backs.
The plan to have Hammonds at WR along with our three running backs did not work out. Thank Goodness for the SC transfer.

More excuses. Your logic fails you completely.

How is that an “excuse”? The OP asked a question, probably in search of why Hammonds hasn’t seen more action than he has this year. Of course, his question and probable answer wouldn't fit the agenda of everyone on the board, so carry on.

Yes he did have surgery.
The reason he didn't know the plays at RB is because they moved him from RB to WR in the spring.
When Hayden got hurt / they moved him back to RB and he had to learn the plays at that position in 1 week.

He came back from the knee injury after the 1st game of the season I believe. He was just buried on the WR depth chart and was only getting in a few plays a game. If Hayden doesn't get hurt - he'd still be at WR getting 0 to 2 touches a game.

Have you torn a meniscus and had surgery? If he wasn’t put 6 months it means they just cut the torn peice of meniscus. I had surgery and was walking that day. Was playing basketball in less than a week.

Blocking ability is part of the equation. More to the position than outrunning everybody. Right or wrong,  may have been part of the decision not to play him.

Yeah, those fast Kids often just cannot learn to block.  It appears they were trying to teach TJ to learn 2 different positions but him being weak minded and all, I mean, couldn't learn to block, ya know, so he just couldn't get on the field.  The situation was likely made even worse because we had so many players who were blocking so perfectly.

Oh and I forgot, when football players suffer knee injuries, it is nearly impossible to set them down and require them to watch hours of tape showing those perfect blocking skills over and over and over.  It seems that showing Guys getting blocked just makes them more aware of their unfortunate injury and it doesn't heal properly.  We always get screwed.  I bet the SEC and NCAA gurus caused this.

If blocking ability is part of the equation, how the hell is anybody getting playing time?  There is no blocking going on.  Backs who supposedly block well are not even chipping a guy in passing, TE’s seem to also completely ignore free rushers at times.  The Oline...well...the Oline...

If Hammonds was well enough to play WR, he was well enough to get snaps at RB.  He has been misused since last year.  It’s just obvious.  This staff has is absolutely horrid at determining who their “gamers” are.

I think it’s personal with CBB. Maybe TJH has had a less than great attitude about standing on the sidelines, and CBB finds that attitude too common for his program. I think CBB is a little upset that TJH is such a beast.

I understand your point.
But still - it's quite obvious Hammonds is THE playmaker on this team. A player when in a little bit of space can take it to the house. I don't care how you have to do it - but he touches the ball multiple times every single game.
And why of all our players did Hammonds NEVER practice a screen play - as in NEVER.
Yet, he ran the play he had never practiced in the game and took it for a touchdown.

He also was injured in practice and in a walking boot during one week.

I know.
But the point is until the last 2 weeks - the games Hammonds has been available has resulted in few if any  touches. He's really the only explosive player we have - when healthy and available he should have been getting the ball more. Getting him the ball - hasn't seemed to be a priority for this staff. And I still think if Hayden hadn't gotten hurt - TJ would still be buried on the bench for the most part.

That may be true with a endoscopic partial menisectomy. The injury is not the same for all and the recovery time is varible.

And he's still 3rd on the depth chart for LSU.

He didn't play as a freshman either.  When he was not hurt.
