Seriously, im sick of him actin hurt all the time. Dunno if it's his excuse for missin a shot or making a bad play or what... Watch him tonight. You'll see it.
its probably not an act... every time i play basketball my left ankle gets all jacked up... i have bone on bone... its painful, i hope limp a bit, but just keep playing... maybe his body really does hurt... good athletes can shut the pain off and go during plays... nothing hurts til you stop moving.
Gilstrap plays really hard and ends up on the floor at lot. He's my favorite player of the Mac era and I love him for his effort. I think he's legitimately banged up and I think there is a reason for the gimping.
He does play hard and take a lot of abuse, but I think he could avoid some of that if he played a little more in control sometimes. I love hustle but watching him recklessly fly into the paint sometimes makes me wonder when he's going to take that kill shot to his knee/ankle/elbow/etc.
You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.
The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
Maybe he's faking it to get the opponent to underestimate him. Anybody remember Chris Carter of the Vikings doing that? Dude took a vicious hit on a play and limped out to his wide-out spot for the next play and then put a double move on the corner and flew past him to score a TD.
