    This game was a disaster. Not because we lost, but because of the injuries. Killings, Green, Jacoby, McKinney, Anderson. Wow. Add Johnson and Dayne and this team is thin, thin, thin on the depth chart. And we still had a chance to win this game only 6 points down. You gotta know you're depth is thin when Cook is your running back and a guy, Davis, who's played for four teams the last four years is your primary receiver.

    I love how Cook gets dogged even tho he was our most productive back today.

    3.9 yds per touch was the best in our backfield today.

    40 rushing yards for the whole team is not a good thing.

    40 rushing yards? God, that's deplorable. Even when Ahman was in for the 3 plays he wasn't getting holes.

    Houston, again.
    The road just got a lot steeper and the wind at our back isn't even much of a breeze at this point. If you went out and picked the guys on offense that would really hurt to lose, these would be, for the most part, be exactly the ones you would least want to be without. It seems that the only key player on offense that isn't dinged is Matt. Dang, Dang, Dang these injuries hurt.

    Depth is important in the NFL...injuries happen and teams have to play on.

    No doubt, it's going to be tough. Hopefully, they can heal quickly.

    This is true, but we've lost some backups as well. The last thing I expected was to lose 2 RBs and 2 WRs at the same time.....ugh. Injuries are killing us. One again it's going to come down to the defense saving our butts. Hopefully we can get some guys back by the time we play the Jags in 3 weeks.

    40 yards rushing, #1 reciever out, #1 RB out, #2 RB out, turnovers, and we were still in the game at the end. We could have won against lesser teams but this was the World Champs. We found ways to score. Players played hard to the end. It's gonna be tough until we get some guys back, but this team can still win some games.
