For all the talk about us struggling bc of 'post-season surgeries' didn't Clarry have both of his shoulders operated on? Dude is indestructible, will carry this side for ten years.
I think he could be a generational type player for us. He played through the shoulder injuries last year for a fair chunk of the season and was AA.

Already tracking to be one of our GOATs. Funny to think how cooked we'd have been without him hoping that Petracca, Brayshaw, Viney, Tyson, Stretch and Salem pulled something together (before Harmes looked decent), given he was drafted after all of them. Would take one Oliver over the rest of that group together.

Clarry is certainly one of those players who can lift after a slow start. Also tagged most of the night to.
He had a slow start last year too.

It is crazy though to think a 21 year old kid who has played 64 games is having a slow start to the season when they are averaging 32.2 touches and 8.8 clearances

I was more talking about slows starts to games don’t bother him.

But certainly some people don’t want to talk about how good he is. Despite the stats you’ve quoted.
