    I second this, as well as its reasoning.

    I think I'll take at least 2 weeks off any actual weight lifting and just do some cardio.

    I wouldn't do anything even cardio for at least a week. Let the back heal before you do anything.

    If your muscle hasn't torn off then you don't need rest.

    Yah don't screw with a back issue. Complete and absolute rest. I learned the hard way via mattress. Had bought this nice plush mattress. Within 2 weeks my back was out. Couldn't even roll myself out of bed. Had to get rid of it for a more in between plush and firm mattress.

    This reminds me that I need to flip my mattress.

    Were you able to exchange mattresses? Would suck to have to foot the bill on both.

    2 questions: was it an inexpensive mattress?... and do you typically sleep on your back or stomach?

    Yeah those things get pretty darn pricey, sis.
    I sleep on a high end Kingsdown mattress that I won in a sales contest [would've cost me 5 grand otherwise]. When people say soft as a cloud, that's where the cliche' came from... but it still ensures full proper spinal alignment. I rarely wake up during the night b/c my circulation never gets cut off. Nor any aches & pains in the morning. Totally spoiled now. Hope you both get the same enjoyment. Only thing that sucks is you can never go back to spending less on a mattress again for as long as you shall live. LOL

    we got the one that articulates so that cost us a bunch more - we had a high end simmons black line - that was like 3 or so grand, ive been complaining about it since day 2. weve had it for 8 yrs. So, hoping that this new expenditure is worth it. i need to sleep, it's been 8 fricken yrs.

    Simmons black, isn't articulating. Problem with it was the pillow top was too firm and very hot. And you can't flip a pillow top.

    racist

    that's understandable. It probably would've driven me nuts too knowing my preference. My Kingsdown actually has a coiled pillow top, as in the pillow top itself is coiled too, so it doesn't generate much heat thankfully.

    You'll have to keep us posted how the new bed works out. So ummm... which one of you required the articulating feature? [great feature BTW, gotta be worth it's weight in gold]

    Sucks for you guys that you need to drop crazy loot on mattresses. I sleep anywhere. I've fallen asleep in class (literally they needed smelling salts to wake me up), through fire alarms, I fell asleep in the shower standing up once...the only thing that really wakes me up is sunlight. It's a miracle I'm never really late to work or other stuff. I can only imagine if I had a super high end mattress. I might never move

    Houston Texans welcome:

    HB Daniel Thomas - The former 2nd round pick out of Kansas State will compete behind Arian Foster and Steven Jackson and gives the Texans 3 capable starters at the position
    FB Henry Hynoski - grading out as the #3 FB last year, Hynoski brings his strong blocking game to Houston to help bolster the run game

    The Atlanta Falcons would like to welcome RB Jarryd Haynes to the team.

    We are excited about the potential he offers our team on several levels. As a rugby star he killed the competition at 6-2 and 226 pounds and a 4.53 timed 40, and he projects to play running back. A little back story on him from the Washington Post, "...there is little doubt that he is an elite specimen with plenty of experience outrunning, or simply plowing through, would-be tacklers. In 2014, he won his second player of the year award in Australia’s National Rugby League, considered the top league of its kind."

    Daniel Jeremiah released the following tweet regarding Haynes:
    Initially we expect him to be a kickoff and punt returner while also starring on the kick off coverage unit and punting unit as a gunner. He will learn the HB and FB positions and we like his long-term potential there. His ability to kick and lateral the ball with accuracy allow us to expand our trick play selection.

    Also, he is a hell of a tackler (I highly suggest you check out his tackles which start at 2:16 in the video below)

    i know, I was trying to find humor in the sadness lol.

    I'm keeping him on my roster (he will make my final 53 man roster). He is only 24 years old and could change his mind and decide to come back.

    Who is next to retire? I'm also 100% teams will now avoid players that had chronic head injuries in college.
