This team went 8-8 after losing 70 "starter-games" to inury.
Last year's 8-8 team was relatively injury free. To me that is a monumental difference between the two squads and says a lot about the overall quality of the 2012 club.
8-8 ain't far from 5-11 either.
A lot of people were saying early on that the injuries would be used as an excuse if the team fizzled at the end of the year again, and it looks like they were right.
I'm sure the excuses being made in here are the same excuses the personell are currently feeding Jerry as they try to cover their own butts as well.
You can rationalize away anything if you try hard enough. We'll just ignore how terribly the team was playing even when most of those guys were healthy, that's the ticket.
We need wins, and that's all we need. I don't give a damn about anyone on this roster over wins. I'd trade Ware, Lee and Dez if it meant more wins.
