    1) The probability of injury is NOT independent of a player's injury history.

    2) Amendola is not injury prone.

    3) Dowling and Fletcher on the other hand are injury prone, as are Hernandez. Edelman and Gronkowski.

    I think it has to do with the genetics of a persons skeleto-muscular system some guys just don't crack, other guys do a lot of the time they get him.

    I do not believe bone density has anything to do with it, just look at GRONK and Welker. Which one broke a bone? And there is no way in hell you will every convince me Welker has thicker bones then GRONK. I think it's a combination of two abilities, being observant or having good awareness, and flexibility. As an example of what I mean I was rear ended on a hit and run not that long ago and it totaled my car. Most people would have been hurt because they would not have seen it coming or tensed up and braced for it. I saw the hit and did everything I could to get out of the way and then just went totally limp and rolled with it. Walked away without a scratch and some minor back pain. It's the same in the nfl. Do what you can not to take the big hit but once you know you are gonna take it just go limp and absorb the force. If you tense up and keep fighting, I believe you will just get hurt. It's the biggest difference I see between Welker and Eldeman. Welker fights for yards until he knows he is about to get clobbered then rolls with it. Eldeman keeps fighting all the way down and spends most of the year in the tub.

    I hope that Brady invites all the receivers out to Cali. Dobson, Boyce, Moe, Jones, Jenkins, Edelman, Thompkins, Ford, Sudfeld. Have him show the new guys how he wants the routes run. Have them start building that rapport.. It would be great if they came into camp and hit the ground running. It would sure help their learning curve as well.

    How is Gronk injury prone? The guy went two and 2/3rd seasons of a three year career without missing a game. That isn't injury prone.

    Ha! That made my day.

    But since the Roxbury guys were knock off of the "Two Wild and Crazy" guys, I'd like to see a .gif of that.

    And I don't get why Hernandez has last years injury held against him. It's his fault someone rolled his ankle?

    But before that he only missed two games from a sprained MCL. The two he missed his rookie season were the last two of the regular season, which was in Buffalo and against Miami. Not gonna hold those two against him.

    Gronk and Hernandez injuries were all football contact injuries. Amendola's were caused by how he fell on the turf in St. Louis.

    If I had to say which was more of an injury prone way of getting hurt, being hurt by football contact or the way someone fell on the turf. I gotta say falling on the turf.

    Although I don't think Amendola is prone. He just had two awkward falls on the turf. He proved in '09 and '10 he isn't injury prone as he played both those seasons completely.

    His '11 injury is overblown because they IR'd him. Had the rules now been in place regarding bringing injured players back he wouldn't have missed 15 games.

    And, as someone noted, the major difference between Amendola in 2011 and Welker in 2009 was timing: Amendola's injury came very early in the season, Welker's in Week 17.
