Jerome Mathis motorcyle accident? (1 Viewer)

I heard on the radio this morning that Mathis was in a motorcycle accident. Do any of you Texans homers have any news about this?

If it's true, then that would definately mean that Houston will take Bush, not that they aren't going to already.

MATHIS PULLS A WINSLOWA league source tells us that Texans receiver Jerome Mathis is sporting casts on both hands and bandages on his wrists and arms due to a recent motorcycle accident. The accident happened recently, and nearly a year to the day after Browns tight end Kellen Winslow auditioned for the role of Superman by flying over the handlebars after attempting a reverse wheelie. Winslow suffered far more extensive injuries, including a torn ACL that knocked him out for the 2005 season.Per the source, the injuries to Mathis appear to be limited to his arms. The source added that Mathis looks like "a mummy from the elbows down" (which raises all sorts of interesting bathroom issues). Coincidentally, both Winslow and Mathis are represented by the Postons.Attention all NFL players. You are not invincible. And you need your bodies to make your living. So wait to do the motorcycle thing, or any other potentially dangerous activities, until after your careers are over. Playing pro football should be enough of a rush. When you can't play pro football anymore, then go look for other ways to get your bodies snapped and twisted 100 different ways.I should have thought to look there. This probably isn't true, since no one else is reporting it.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's easy to be first when you just make stuff up and then get lucky when it happens.
 
I used to be a pretty heavy PFT basher myself. But they do seem to have some insider sources anyway. I guess when you run with rumors you're bound to be wrong a good bit too.

That being said, what they heck is "nearly a year to the day?" That's like saying that Monday through Friday is nearly exactly a week.

 
Suppousedly it was on ABC 13 news here in Houston and that's where PFT got their info. Haven't been able to confirm it on ABC's website.

You mean like making up the Moss trade, making up the Chad Johnson incident, making up the Culpepper trade talks, making up the Reggie Bush/parents issue and making up this Mathis story? Yeah, I agree. They sure do make up a lot of stuff. Good, accurate imaginations.
 
The story had been reported by Houston television station on either Saturday or Sunday night, but there was no link, but on the Houston message board several people reported hearing the same thing.

Apparently, Mathis is pretty hardheaded and thinks a little much of himself especially since his primary talent is having world-class speed. He is not a natural football player and looks to have a long way to go even being able to hold down the job as WR3. In short, he is a great return guy because he is fast and noone can catch him if he gets a step.

As far as getting any straight injury information from the Texans, remember this the organization that kept insisting that Tony boselli could play when nobody was sure he lift his arm above his head. they will go as long as possible w/o saying anything and won't give the real scoop even once they do.
