I actually think our depth was pretty darn good, all things considered. A lot better than it had been, anyway, with some notable areas of exception.
Surprised to see Watkins give a kudo of sorts to Wilbur. Other than his amazing pop on that return in the second Sk*ns game, I thought he didn't look good at all at most points this season.
I still content that depth is this team's greatest challenge. All teams have star players but this team lacks the roster depth necessary to overcome the injury bug long term.
I know both lines need an influx of young talent but it helps a great deal to have quality backups at RB, WR, TE, safety, and LB.
Garrett to players: Make today a great day; go about the business of winning! If you can't keep up then don't step up.
