Howard Mudd seriously injured in motorcycle crash

Howard Mudd, a longtime NFL assistant who is considered one of the best offensive line coaches in league history, has been hospitalized after a motorcycle crash.

Mudd is in the intensive care unit at a Seattle hospital and will need multiple surgeries for injuries described as “a fractured pelvis and spine,” according to FOX 59 in Indianapolis.

A family friend described the 78-year-old Mudd as “awake on and off.”

Mudd played college football at Michigan State and was drafted by the 49ers in 1964. He had a seven-year NFL career and played in three Pro Bowls, then he had a decades-long career as an offensive line coach with the Chargers, 49ers, Seahawks, Browns, Chiefs, Colts and Eagles.

Cam has a tough row to hoe. So far, eight New England Patriots players have decided to opt out of the 2020 NFL season. Dont'a Hightower, Patrick Chung, Marcus Cannon, Brandon Bolden, Danny Vitale, Najee Toran, Marqise Lee, and Matt LaCosse each are sitting out this year due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. This makes a arduous task much more so.

Five of the players are on the offense. I don't know how important they are to the offense..

So far as I know no Buccaneers have opted out.

Rumors are that the Pats want to tank for Lawrence. It doesn’t look like Newton is a long term answer.

Do you think they'll tank in Brady's first year at the helm? I don't think Tom will go for that!

They would need to win 2 or 3 games max for that to happen. I don't see that happening.

They will win 2-3 games just from coaching alone.

Not if players keep opting out and they have to pick up guys who are just trying to make a team.

As far as I know no Buccaneer players have opted out. Do you have a update on Buc players opting out?

EDIT:
I was thinking Tampa Bay....Bad habit of mine, reading comprehension.

Their offense is bare bones as is, they have no receivers. And now defensive players are opting out, which was their only strength. I honestly don’t know if they want to tank but if they do, Bill will be onboard.

My bad I was thinking Tampa Bay.....Bill Belichick just may tank.

New England will be bad, but not bad enough to draft Lawrence. They still have an elite defensive backfield. In terms of Cam, they wouldn't have signed him if tanking was the goal.

I can't say I'm surprised at Sanu and Michel going to the PUP list. Sanu had surgery on a high ankle sprain. Depending upon severity, the timeline can take over a year before you can place the same torque on that ankle. And of course, cuts are a huge part of the slot receiver's game. Michel wasn't really ever right last season, and I'm not so sure he ever will be. I don't see their additions to PUP as part of a tanking grand strategy.
