  • I remember watching this beach game thinking it was the dumbest thing ever because of injury risk. On another note, Flemlo....you are awesome 👌

  • I can’t believe the teams were OK with this game being held. What a shame. All that potential down the drain.

  • Imagine what was goin through his head while he was laying on meaningless sand, with his leg filling up with his own blood. I've been hurt in quite a few out of the blue, unthinkable ways, but that's kinda hard to imagine.

  • So should we blame Charles Woodson for injuring Edwards just like how Woodson blames the Tuck rules on Tom Brady?

  • I suffered a serious knee injury where I tore my MCL & PCL, frayed the ACL, ripped all the soft tissue around my kneecap and broke off a piece of cartilage that wedged behind the kneecap. I was confined to bed rest for six MONTHS to reduce swelling before they could operate. It took another six months of physical therapy and being on crutches before I could walk on my own power. It was about another full year before I could actually sprint and jog without issues. I have nothing but respect for what Robert Edwards had to go through.

  • I get that he made a stellar comeback in the CFL. Then on the other hand, everybody knows that, the CFL is also like everyone that couldn't make it in the NFL...worst than 3rd string or practice squad.

  • What is weird if he never got injured the Patriots probably wouldn't be the dynasty we see today and we probably wouldn't know Tom Brady or Brady just wouldn't be seen in the same way we see him now. Bill Bilicheck probably just be just another coach.

  • Smh I can only imagine losing your career over a dumb flag football game. I agree with Flemlo if he never got hurt that’s a whole different patriot team.

  • Make it so whichever conference wins the Pro Bowl game, each team in that conference gets like a free draft pick or a small cap bonus or something good.

  • Even if he still gets hurt Pete Carroll still going to get fired double check still going to be there and rest is still going to happen especially at running back running back don't change the game that much even back then specially since he wasn't like one of the top running backs he was never going to be that

  • Don't blame him I would be pissoff also. And also most players don't go to the pro-blow anymore and there is not a pro-blow is not going to happen this year.

  • I had a teammate in semi-pro football who was an incredible WR. He had a tryout scheduled with the Chicago Rush of the old Arena Football League, and tryouts with several teams in the CFL. Then he blows his ACL in a game of backyard touch football. I really think he could have eventually made it to at least the practice squad of an NFL team. Maybe, just maybe, he could have made it onto an actual roster. He's doing well now working; he has a wife and kids and is happy. But it's a shame when something like that happens.

  • Question: Are players required to play in the Pro Bowl if invited? I personally wouldn't participate if I didn't have to. It's a chance for an injury in a game that few people even watch. Getting a Pro Bowl invite is more prestigious than actually playing well in a Pro Bowl. Anyone know if guys are able to decline a Pro Bowl invite.

  • Seriously bro, you need to get off of USworlds and be on a national channel doing documentaries. Your research, approach, and delivery are second to none. I just started watching about a month ago and now I put on one of your vids everyday. This one really hit to the heart because your speaking about someone who may have been the greatest persona of what a great player is and I’m sad to say before this I would have never heard of him. I hope he sees this video and sends you some love. You are fantastic at what you do and your style motivates others to try to achieve things as well. You need to cover boxing, bodybuilding, baseball, etc. cause you’re that good:)

  • Only 9,000 out of 100,000 (9%) will play at college, and only 215 of that 100,000 will ever play in the he NFL (0.215%). I personally went to school with 4: Rich & Eric Moran, Keith Mallard, and Greg Kragen. All worked VERY hard & had "connections," through George Balevich, a professional Scout & school teacher at Foothill High, Pleasanton, CA. Moran's dad played NFL & helped train them. No lie, John Madden would watch them practice & play since his daughter attended our school. Kragen attended our rival, Amador High.

  • There was a college recruiter at Cal State Hayward (1999) who made it to the NFL, and blew out his knee on his first and only NFL play. He claimed he was glad he had a college degree to fall back on.

  • Flem Lo you are the man. The absolute best orator on USworlds. There are paid professionals on ESPN that can't tell a story half as good as you. Your videos are always interesting and your commentary is well thought out and insightful. I Can't wait to see what's next for you. I think that you are bound to do BIG things in near future.
