Seriously, if it ended with Cushing's injury, it wouldn't have gotten as bad as it did.
I don't know if we'd have won the Super Bowl (chances, not) but we wouldn't have looked as bad.
It's not that Cushing got hurt, at that time, the posters saying, "let's see how it play out" were right.
But his replacement (Dobbins) got hurt. The guy next to him (James) got hurt. The guy who replaced Cushing's replacement (Sharpton) got hurt. We had to sign a guy off the street (Ruud) & he played quite a few snaps. We had to sign a second guy off the street (Alexander) who became part of our awesome STs....
I'm sorry they questioned your "fandom" but you can't come back & say, "I was right" when the back up's back up got hurt.
