  • groves had heart surgery?

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story;jsessi...o&confirm=true

    first its DRC with one kidney and now groves apparently underwent surgery on his heart to repair a problem with its electrical system.

    it doesnt sound serious but wow, how does that not get out until now?

    thoughts? impact?

    The thing about Groves' heart condition is that no matter what he does it won't affect it, he has a .03% of sudden cardiac death but playing football does not increase the chance

      I feel kinda bad for the guy. It's hard to tell the actual severity right before the draft (ie. paralyzed for life turns into minor toe surgery.) I hope he still goes well, as it might not hinder him, however, I'm glad my team doesn't need to spend more money at the DE position. He could turn into a 2nd round bargain.

        well it said it wasnt serious, but if im about to make a multi-year, multi-million dollar investment in a guy and i hear his name and heart surgery together like that....would make me think about it a little harder in the very least

          This is a total aside but it really sucks how that works. The guy was probably worried about his life at one point and after making it through, he finds out he is now looked at as damaged goods and potentially missing out on an opportunity to live his dream. So much for triumph.

          Thanks to BK for the sig

            That means he'll fall to the Niners for sure now. :) Sweet! Perhaps we can get him in the early 2nd even...

                Between Woodley, Timmons, and Harrison, the Steelers aren't going to be taking a OLB/DE in the first this season. Not with the Turnstile O-Line they have.

                  It is kind of like Ronny Turiaf on the Lakers.

                    We need a more consistant pass rush.

                    If you watch the steelers you know this to be true.

                      I honestly don't know how this affects him. I'm glad that he is healthy, don't get me wrong, but I'm no doctor, so I will stay away from the medical aspect of it. Some teams may not consider this too heavily, but if soem teams removed Kelly due to knee problems, I'm sure the same is being done with Groves. It's a shame I like this guy, and deserves to go higher than he probalby will now, though there is no doubt in my mind that he will still amke a great NFL player.

                        Doubt this will really effect him that much come draft day... I just dont understand why all of these medical reports are coming out just now?

                          Makes little to no sense to me either. The only explanation I can come up with is teams are leaking info in order to get players to drop to their team.

                            They are just hitting the media now, 99% of this stuff isn't news to the teams.

                              I think the idea behind having two young OLB/DEs, is that they develop into better players. And with Roethlisberger will be out of the league within 3 years if the Steelers don't do something drastic with that O Line.
