Reality of injuries
Thu Nov 23, 2017 5:22 pm
  • Anyone see Dallas and how they are nothing?
    They lost Sean Lee and we lose the LOB.
    They lose a RB and we lose 3 of them.
    Their famous line has one guy hurt and we have multiple out every week.
    Injuries and suspensions to key players affect a team beyond coaching.
    For what we have we don't look dead like the Cowboys(At least)

  • What's frustrating is that our injuries don't seem to leave us beyond coaching. Our last two losses were still, at the end, very winnable games. And our coaches don't seem competent enough to win those close chess matches.

    With regard to injuries though, yeah I was just having a conversation earlier this week about how more and more the NFL (and NBA, to some extent) seems to be determined by injuries. Dallas, as you said, loses two players, and they're out of contention. Green Bay loses Rodgers and they fall to pieces. Arizona lost Palmer and Johnson and are effectively neutered. The Giants may have never been great this year, but without Beckham they're completely irrelevant.

    One of the NFL's biggest problems right now isn't blowout games or politically conscious players, it's the fact that luck is becoming a greater factor in the game. Teams lucky enough to stay healthy find themselves toward the front of the pack. It makes for some very anti-climactic storylines throughout the league. Hell, ever since the draft I was looking forward to seeing McDowell take the field for us only the have that excitement come to nothing. I can't imagine how Green Bay feels looking forward to a Super Bowl run all spring just to have your QB go down the the season lost.

    As a spectator it's worse than frustrating; it's boring.

    That's because we have RW who has won games for us on his back.

  • In my eye it’s kinda’ a no brainer.

    Every team in every sport has “key” players.
    Hold true even in Business applications.

    Lose a “key” player or two, and you’re not the same team.
    ITS A GREAT TIME TO BE A SEAHAWK FAN !

    He has but sometimes he puts us in the spot of coming up short,
    That is not to say having no RB's and decimated defense helps him any.
    Oh the kicker helps nobody,
