Talib hammy was concern in Nov.

After 4 weeks off with suspension plus history of off and on hamstring injury in 2011 (IR after 13 games), patriots training/ coaching staff were certainly on high alert to prevent recurrence of thus injury.
hammys occur when you are not in shape to run full speed and you over extend at a time you really need it. ( reaching for ball in full sprint Sunday ... Also remember poor Darrell revis with bad hammy defending moss in 2010?).
The fact that talib goes down with this obvious red flag injury is a cruel twist of fate or a case of severe negligence by patriots coaches and trainers ... And talib himself.
With this history of injuries, this guys legs should have received every possible treatment and every full speed training/ rehabilitation .
Injuries happen but this specific injury is preventable with proper training and conditioning. The fact that it happened is a big mistake by training staff.
Add it to the list of FAIL. list getting longer... Like how is this possible that so many negative events can conspire in this AFC championship loss? It really defies logic. But of course the rayvens made it tough by playing proverbial perfect game. Pats just not ready for it and insufficiently prepared. . FAIL.
