And getting to the other bumps and bruises (Griffin, Fletcher,Garcon), I would say that the Redskins have had nearly as many key injuries as any team in the league.
If you want me to believe this guy can coach, he should have his offense torch the Saints in the first half.
don't get me wrong you all had some injuries...but it isn't even close..not even a little bit
- The Cowboys have already had 24 players on the field for at least 100 defensive snaps. And Moore will likely see 35 snaps against the Saints this Sunday to become No. 25. No Dallas defense the last decade has had more than 20 players reach 100 defensive snaps. The data doesn’t track back any further, but chances are good that no defense in franchise history, outside of possibly 1989, had more than 20 players reach the century mark.
- No other defense in the NFL has had 24 players on the field for at least 100 snaps this season. The league average is 20.2. A dozen teams haven’t even reached 20 players yet, and San Francisco is currently at 14. Yes, 14, as in 10 fewer than Dallas. The 49ers have had 10 players take at least 840 defensive snaps. The Cowboys have had one, Brandon Carr. That is staggering.
- In the NFC East alone, none of the other three teams has had more than 20 defensive players reach 100 snaps. So the injuries haven’t been overstated in the least. The Cowboys have had 36 players take the field on defense this season, or 12 more than the 49ers.
and that is just on the defensive side of the ball
Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a great ocean of anguish, reaching to the very verge of despair....Bertrand Russell
