Hats off to this Robert Edwards dude, what an amazing feat of staying positive and doing the work and overcoming and actually making it back to the NFL, when leg amputation was looking like a reality. Puts our mere mortal insignificant daily struggles in perspective :-)

    I only recently discovered FlemLo and his videos and I became a fan from the first one, but when I saw he did a video about Robert Edwards I was floored. I didn't know anyone remembered Edwards and how he destroyed his knee in that ridiculous flag football game. I've been a Pats fan all my life and have seen guys like Vagas Ferguson, John Stephens, Leonard Russell, Laurence Maroney, and Stevan Ridley show promise and enjoy some success only to flame out. But Edwards' injury was heartbreaking. I can't wait to queue up a bunch more of FlemLo's videos and I'm hoping to find more surprises.

    I’m torn on the Spurrier thing... My first D1 offer ended up getting pulled because they got an injured player back that they weren’t expecting to get back.. That sucked, I stopped trying to go to other schools, and ended up having to go to a JUCO (ended up going to Clemson so, yeah eff Spurrier 😉).
    But, I’d have been better off if they would have let me know up front that the offer wasn’t concrete. I can understand both sides.

    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.

    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.

    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 YouTube 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:)
