….and the first doctor to say, “OK, you’re stupid, too” becomes CSTB’s medical professional of the year. Here’s a few illuminating quotes from former Giants TE Jeremy Shockey in the aftermath of the Saints’ 30-7 drubbing at the hands of Carolina.

`I had a fumble that hurt the team. I missed a backside cutoff block,” Shockey said. “That’s on me, 14 points I felt like I gave up today, not because of effort, but just because physically I’m not healthy.’
“I’m worried that this thing could have been taken care of in camp, like it should have been,” said Shockey, who the Saints acquired from the New York Giants in July for two draft picks. “If it wasn’t misdiagnosed in camp like it was there’d have been no problems. … Next time I know. When I get hurt I’ll get three or four opinions besides just the team’s.”
