He is at the game,
It's the anniversary of the injury,
It's the same injury,
And the score at the time of the injury was the same........

It's unimaginable. The fact that 33 years later to date, not only did the exact injury happen to Joe, but the same leg too. I feel bad for Alex because I felt like he had at least another couple years left in the league

Same yard line...both coaches have the same initials. Same leg, same injury, same final score of the game, injured by pro bowl defensive end, both opposing teams wore red white and blue

Joe must have cringed when he saw what happened and it brought unpleasant memories of 1985, i don't care what team you root for you hate to see this

Im a Cowboys fan, but still.. It sucks when an NFL starter (a solid one at that.. But really when ANY player) goes down due to injury; especially a serious injury. Good players are what makes the NFL so fun to watch. Even when Dallas plays a divisional rival, i love it when both sides are healthy and each team brings their best. Washington was leading the division and now this.. Colt McCoy can have flashes of greatness, sure, but greatness isn't something he'll likely bring to the table every remaining game of the season. I hope for the Sake of Alex Smith, his family/friends, and fans that he's able to make a full recovery and comeback to football if he chooses. At 34 though, playing football doesn't seem too likely. If not, im sure plenty of teams would buy his coaching or scouting services, and CBS and FOX would definitely hire him. Good luck, guy.

Medicine and surgeons have come along way since Joe was hurt. If Alex wants to play he will be able to. All the armchair psychics need to stop with the predictions.

What a douchbag theisman is. Who cares what he has to say about something that happened 33 years ago. boo hoo. Shame anyone gets hurt, but because it happened to thiesman doesnt make him an expert anything.
