Excuse? Did u see his throwing hand?! Did u see Dockery letting every DL right in? The hand was swollen as hell. You don't have to be a doctor to understand that it is very difficult to grip and throw a ball with a swollen hand. He played very well down the stretch in '11 and the defense let the Giants right down the field multiple times as Newman and Scandrick choked way more on defense that game than anybody. All injuries are not the same so saying that everyone is hurt late in the year is a stupid blanket statement. A QB's throwing hand or arm is about as significant as it gets to a players performance. C'mon man, you're smarter than that.
