I cannot believe Lofa Tatupu is still unsigned. That guy fell just as hard as VY. Just goes to show you that you're only as good as your last game in this league. Matt Wilhelm played for Wade in San Diego, but I'm not sure if he's even been on a roster the past few years.

Was he injured or did he just stop playing well? Wasn't he a Probowler before?

Lots of teams have injuries , the lucky teams avoid injuries to key players.

Sure GB lost a ton of player games to injury last year but they lost no one nearly as significant to their team as AJ , MW or Foster.
Bump - I want an answer to my question ....

You check all the other message boards of other teams, and you're going to see certain fans cry babying about how their team is faring worse than other teams.

Stop cry babying about the injury situation. How's that for an answer.

I think most people talk about OUR injuries because they are to key players and as a reaction to the people on the MB who say we have a garbage team because we lost to the raiders and the ravens. I mean if you were to choose players on the team that, should avoid injury at all costs well they sittin on IR or on sat out several games this season. Not to "cry" about it but to say we playing well considering...

No , you didnt give an answer because .... you cant come up with a team who has lost arguably its best player on both sides of the ball.

The are only two team's who have been hit with injuries to players as significant as the Texans is ....
The Raiders who lost their QB and their star RB for a stretch.
And the Dolts .... who lost their QB.

Look how those teams have fared since those injuries ...... 0-fer.


I wasnt crying about the injury situation , just asking you a question since you were asking for evidence we had more injuries. I was making the point that its not about the sheer volume but the quality of the players lost to injury ..... Kinda like the GB team who won last years SB , they lost a lot of players but no one significant.

The Texans have held it together for the most part since losing MW , AJ and Manning ..... they have a reasonable amount of talent available to take up the slack .... tho the TE's have been the guy's to pick it up in place of AJ rather than JJ his replacement (Tho he did have a decent game against the Jags).

I would add the Chiefs to that list. Losing Eric Berry and Jamal Charles who are significant players for both sides of that team hurts.

But i do agree the Texans have have been hit hardest in the league.

I DON'T agree with that, because I'm being objective about it. Ask a Steelers fan if he thinks the Texans are faring worse than his team? Or a Colts fan, or a Chiefs fan.

We are still playing well because our major injuries, unlike other teams, are not happening on the defensive or offensive lines, and it's the battle upfront, in the trenches, that separates the winning teams and the losing teams.

And guess what? The season isn't even half over. More people are going to get hurt. And we're probably going to have more players get lost for the season. That's the NFL.

Ok you can make an argument on all the teams listed. But If you stop trying to play the non homer card you'll realize that our team has been one of the harder hit teams in the league by injuries. Losing Andre and Mario who have been our best players on their respective side of the ball, our starting Safety in Manning, basically all of our running backs to start the season, and now Sharpton who has been playing significant time behind DeMeco have/is going to be significant down the road.

So i guess Mario and the impact he creates dosent count here? Im sure Cowboys and Vikings fans would agree if they lost Ware or Allen it would be no big deal compared to all the other teams losing players.

The season is half over for us, we've played 8 games. And how can you seriously say we're probably going to lose more players? I can just as easily say we wont lose anymore players. Pretty dumb statement.

Jamal Charles, definitely as he was their offense. Eric Berry? Though he is one of their better defenders, I don't know that he "defines" that defense. I don't know who does...

At the same time, our success on defense (we're not just getting by, we're pretty damn good on defense) shows that Mario does not define our defense as he has in the past.

fiffy...

Most of those guys are role players. We got no credit when we lost DBrown for four games, didn't we lose Brisiel for a couple? Ward is what their 2nd/3rd receiver? I know he plays bigger than that, but that shows what kind of talent they have at WR.

The Steelers are just flat out a better franchise. But to be comparable to what we lost, in a lot of people's mind, they have to lose Rothlisberger (which they did last year & it was impressive they still won), Harrison & Palamalu (except we don't have a player comparable to Palamalu).

This is what Im getting at - No one has really lost the calibur of player that the Texans have .... and for the Steelers , when they were playing for all the marbles , they had those guys pn the field.

Every team has lost someone .... but name another thats lost two Pro Bowlers , arguably their best players on either side of the ball ..... and continued to put up W's.

But hey , they are still putting up W's .... thats all I give a damn about.
