      This also why brady says probowl is dumb. Imagine this kid with brady

    4. TheNinjakat2010

      How does this get over 200 down votes?

    5. TheNinjakat2010

      You can overcome anything if you learn how to change to your strength. You can be disabled and still do normal things depending on your self want

    6. Mustangkid29

      You should do a video on Shawn Merriman

    7. BrianHeidik

      Whenever I get down I think of Robert Edwards, what he went through, and everything he overcame

      Right, Same for me. This dude is so engaging and makes great videos!! Hats off to you my friend, very talented.

    10. Teth Adam

      Idk how I found this channel but I've been watching the crap out of it this weekend. I like the deep dives on players, especially ones I didn't know of. I appreciate the optimistic approach to everyone. It's nice to see bios without an agenda.

    11. Robinson R.L. Wigfall

      Daaaamn !!!!! Arrrggghhhhh that beach injury killed me !!!! Damnnnn I remember this day.

    12. Taylor's grand adventures

      Just barely found you today and I'm addicted to your content. Great story telling and way to help everyone see perspective on even bad players. Thank you for giving me great football stories to continue to pay attention to.

    13. Bennie Leija

      Never stop folks Great story

    14. Randy Gonzalez

      I absolutely, positively fkn hate the "q the wayne" segment for every vid

    15. Ike Oranekwu

      What’s the name of the music at the end?

    16. Pete Salvano

      This was SEC football, not Juco or D2, which makes his switch to RB even more amazing...

    17. K Gray

      My leg hurt while watching this video .....

    18. Jeff Adair

      Great content. Love how you added in the butterfly effect. That's a video in itself.

    19. Jmitch gets buckets

      I love your videos bro. They're flawless

    20. Body of Truth

      Did he have ricketts?

    21. Jim Daniels

      WOW!! What an inspirational story of human perseverance! Also one of your best videos EVER, IMO (it's hard to pick just one, there are so many great ones you've done...) Hats off to this Robert Edwards dude, what an amazing feat of staying positive and doing the work and overcoming and actually making it back to the NFL, when leg amputation was looking like a reality. Puts our mere mortal insignificant daily struggles in perspective :-)

    22. Wyatt Barfield


    23. charles jutras

      those years at mtl ... the guy was brutal 🔥🔥 almost a 1st down every run I got the ball. in a league with 3 downs when you pratically only passed the ball !!!

    24. Michael Lynch

      I only recently discovered FlemLo and his videos and I became a fan from the first one, but when I saw he did a video about Robert Edwards I was floored. I didn't know anyone remembered Edwards and how he destroyed his knee in that ridiculous flag football game. I've been a Pats fan all my life and have seen guys like Vagas Ferguson, John Stephens, Leonard Russell, Laurence Maroney, and Stevan Ridley show promise and enjoy some success only to flame out. But Edwards' injury was heartbreaking. I can't wait to queue up a bunch more of FlemLo's videos and I'm hoping to find more surprises.

    25. Jalen3590

      Can someone tell me what is red shirt in NCAA football

    26. M

      I’m torn on the Spurrier thing... My first D1 offer ended up getting pulled because they got an injured player back that they weren’t expecting to get back.. That sucked, I stopped trying to go to other schools, and ended up having to go to a JUCO (ended up going to Clemson so, yeah eff Spurrier 😉). But, I’d have been better off if they would have let me know up front that the offer wasn’t concrete. I can understand both sides.

    27. 1107flex

      That shirt cold bro

    28. Dominick Garamella

      Bro, you just named some of the best RBs in the game. What a year for Backs, huh?

    29. J.C. Nichols

      Nice Hat.

    30. dabet warner

      The swift north america weekly scrub because cloud intrestingly ruin around a classy nepal. grouchy, meaty sink

    31. Giraffe Conspiracy

      My dude, you are good at this. Clearly you do a ton of research - but your presentation is fantastic.

    32. Freeze Biggs

      R Edwards was a baller that beach pro bowl Shit took out tony banks QB for rams to

    33. M F

      The inspirational words at the end of this video hit me hard!! I needed it.

    34. frank horton

      12:56 blew my mind lol

    35. Renaldo Tilley

      I remember watching this beach game thinking it was the dumbest thing ever because of injury risk. On another note, Flemlo....you are awesome 👌

    36. Matt Joseph

      I can’t believe the teams were OK with this game being held. What a shame. All that potential down the drain.

    37. Skynyrd Jesus

      Imagine what was goin through his head while he was laying on meaningless sand, with his leg filling up with his own blood. I've been hurt in quite a few out of the blue, unthinkable ways, but that's kinda hard to imagine.

    38. marcos laureano

      I'm lovin that hat though bro....

    39. Premium Auto Sales

      Love reading the comments to see who else is a Flemlo fan

    40. Get 2 DaMoney

      Dope story

    41. Tonyo Xyooj

      So should we blame Charles Woodson for injuring Edwards just like how Woodson blames the Tuck rules on Tom Brady?

    42. Damian S

      I suffered a serious knee injury where I tore my MCL & PCL, frayed the ACL, ripped all the soft tissue around my kneecap and broke off a piece of cartilage that wedged behind the kneecap. I was confined to bed rest for six MONTHS to reduce swelling before they could operate. It took another six months of physical therapy and being on crutches before I could walk on my own power. It was about another full year before I could actually sprint and jog without issues. I have nothing but respect for what Robert Edwards had to go through.

    43. Jaxson

      This man could have been the best running back of all time but a flag football game ruined the odd what a champion

    44. Wideglide 215

      I remember the player and the “game”. Such an awful result that could have been avoided!

    45. RLE Savage

      These vedios are very well put together , you one of the best overall KGup's in the game

    46. Chuck Chillout

      This is gonna be good.. u do a professional job Fam.. different frm tha rest Love frm Beaver Falls Pa

      "start the relationship out with a kid by pressuring him to make an impulsive decision." Welcome to the U.S.. Military..

    48. pmmahone1

      You are better than any person on the networks. I enjoy every video of yours I watch. Are you in Cincinnati? Toledo here.

    49. Isaiah Washington

      🙏🏾I have so much respect for him man

    50. Steve Diego dela Vega

      Wow what a tragic story truly sad

    51. Lucas Denault

      Had no idea that Spurrier was such a douchebag

    52. Shabberplasm 32

      Yeah shout out to his dad for protecting his son like that. That's a good parent.

    53. jose henriquez

      Wow, this is what I needed to hear thank you.

    54. Brian Freer

      I get that he made a stellar comeback in the CFL. Then on the other hand, everybody knows that, the CFL is also like everyone that couldn't make it in the NFL...worst than 3rd string or practice squad.

    55. Emeka American

      What is weird if he never got injured the Patriots probably wouldn't be the dynasty we see today and we probably wouldn't know Tom Brady or Brady just wouldn't be seen in the same way we see him now. Bill Bilicheck probably just be just another coach.

    56. Beatman 100

      Smh I can only imagine losing your career over a dumb flag football game. I agree with Flemlo if he never got hurt that’s a whole different patriot team.

    57. Techno Mage

      Make it so whichever conference wins the Pro Bowl game, each team in that conference gets like a free draft pick or a small cap bonus or something good.

    58. jim bob

      Athlete's are. baby enough your telling me that are so weak they can't do anything on sandb

    59. jim bob

      Even if he still gets hurt Pete Carroll still going to get fired double check still going to be there and rest is still going to happen especially at running back running back don't change the game that much even back then specially since he wasn't like one of the top running backs he was never going to be that

    60. Mark Piekacz Piekacz

      Don't blame him I would be pissoff also. And also most players don't go to the pro-blow anymore and there is not a pro-blow is not going to happen this year.

    61. JaMikal M

      @Flemlo, where you got the shirt from bro? I need it!

    62. Mike Fantasia

      If it wasnt for tom Brady two years later we would still be talking about this in New England

    63. Mike Fantasia

      Man , I remember him as a kid. 1 year, just 1 . In the sand , man.

    64. TheSBleeder

      I had a teammate in semi-pro football who was an incredible WR. He had a tryout scheduled with the Chicago Rush of the old Arena Football League, and tryouts with several teams in the CFL. Then he blows his ACL in a game of backyard touch football. I really think he could have eventually made it to at least the practice squad of an NFL team. Maybe, just maybe, he could have made it onto an actual roster. He's doing well now working; he has a wife and kids and is happy. But it's a shame when something like that happens.

    65. TheSBleeder

      Question: Are players required to play in the Pro Bowl if invited? I personally wouldn't participate if I didn't have to. It's a chance for an injury in a game that few people even watch. Getting a Pro Bowl invite is more prestigious than actually playing well in a Pro Bowl. Anyone know if guys are able to decline a Pro Bowl invite.

    66. keem31

      Seriously bro, you need to get off of KGup and be on a national channel doing documentaries. Your research, approach, and delivery are second to none. I just started watching about a month ago and now I put on one of your vids everyday. This one really hit to the heart because your speaking about someone who may have been the greatest persona of what a great player is and I’m sad to say before this I would have never heard of him. I hope he sees this video and sends you some love. You are fantastic at what you do and your style motivates others to try to achieve things as well. You need to cover boxing, bodybuilding, baseball, etc. cause you’re that good:)

    67. Iain Macleod

      Good man , yo sy enn tiss

    68. lateinrulz

      Greets from Munich Germany Love your Videos man. Very motivating👍 Keep up your Good work

    69. James Ford

      Real talk: I love your videos man. You come across as a down-to-earth guy and, if I knew you in real-life, I totally would hang out with you and talk football with you all the time. Keep up the good work.

    70. Jack Daddy

      Dope video, shit makes you think

    71. anthony simmons

      Where you get that hat? 🔥

    72. Golden Honey

    76. Adam Woolum

      This kids story is in the top ten comebacks of all time.

    77. jim Schleich

      I've been sorta bingeing on your videos and have to say like this one the most. I was aware of his sand bowl injury, but not so much the incredible rest of. Great story and presentation. And the "What If...?" part was mindblowing!

    78. Chris Watson

      Sand is actually smart, it has much more cushion and give than turf of grass....Just a freak injury

    79. J. T.

      I need that shirt man

    80. WorldWide FAILURE

      This dude better than espn, he obviously does a lot of homework and is able to make everything interesting..

    81. greatscottdrums


    82. Henry G. Thompson

      He ended up playing 1 year for the miami dolphins

    83. P J

      Where did you get that shirt from

    84. DisabusingTheLeft

      I hate All Star and All Pro games in general. It's useless and only provides opportunities for needless player injuries.

    85. datzitteezy

      I remember this. Everyone was like why did the NFL have this event.

    86. supermike1982

      Funny the dolphins let him go then pass on brees 3 years later

    87. supermike1982

      Plus belechecks leaving the jets no matter what lol

    88. Tyler N.

    91. Anchors Away

      Not all HOF attitudes and work ethics make it to the HOF unfortunately.

    92. Chazzy Wazzy

      Wow this is inane..I had the exact same injury in 2008 when I was 16. Luckily I know longer wear an AFO everyday but I still have nerve damage. 1 in every few million

    93. Ethan Steinke

      You got a Pharaoh on your shirt

    94. shirtjuggler

      Flem you too real. Don't let nobody tell you what you can or can not do. Just do you and let the chips fall where they may.

    95. Alonzo Evans
