The GB Packers have more serious injuries then we do, yet they are getting better and we are not.
Whch, if you read my post, is my point. There's no point denying we don't have injuries, because we do, just as there's no point denying that were better in the trenches with Starks and Smith than we obviously are when they're out. My point about us being beat up is that we don't have the quality of players to step in when we do have key players go down, and with aging lines, you have to draft with that in mind - we haven't done so, and that's where the fault is.
Injuries affect every team, it's how you factor for them that separates the men from the boys - we haven't and we're paying for it. I also raised the coaching issues and holes in key personnel areas.
