    Injured Reserve - 3 heavy hitters

    I realize that we might not be as bad off as a few other teams, but the injuries that we have suffered this season have been significant.

    DC and Matt, are the 2 QBs of the offense.
    We lose a major pass rusher on our D.
    Our 3rd pick overall, Fox isn't getting any experience.
    Willie??

    It is said that the battles are won upfront, on the line. Well, with Birk off of the O line and Udeze off of the D line, it doesn't help out team any especially when we haven't found solid replacements at their positions. We eliminated Udeze's position because of it and went 3-4.

    Injured Reserve

    78 Birk, Matt C 6-4 308 Harvard St. Paul, MN


    11 Culpepper, Daunte QB 6-4 260 Central Florida Ocala, FL


    37 Fox, Dustin S 5-10 190 Ohio State Canton, Ohio


    24 Offord, Willie S 6-1 215 South Carolina Palatka, FL


    95 Udeze, Kenechi DE 6-3 281 USC Los Angeles, CA

    By no means is this the only reason for the "tough season" but this thread is not for the other(OC DC HC) stuff. Not to mention the other injuries that kept players out of the games.

    Every team has injuries though, maybe not to as key of players but just look at teams like the Jets or Packers who have been raped.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    I knew Fox was on the IR because he broke his arm but this is usually 4-6 weeks....did he need surgery? Is this the same break he had in college and they felt giving him a year off would return him to 100%

    Very good, yes, Our injuries have been very hard. However, the packers DO NOT have it harder as said above. Yes, Javon walker, ahman green, and davenport are significant, but there team leader in favre is not out, so they do not have it as hard. Our two center pieces of teh offense are missing!

    I was just making the point that we have some significant injuries.

    I totally agree, yes GB has had their share of injuries too. Green and Walker that is a psychological defeat right there.

    Look at those teams and notice that those teams are struggling too.

    Even the Eagles, with McNabb battling his sports-hernia and Owens battling injuries from week to week, hard to get into a groove. The same goes for the Pats. Now look at the Colts, they haven't been hit by the Injured Reserve Bug. Sure the Colts have key players get bumped and bruised, but they have no significant players on the Injured Reserve.

    Injuries tend to plague every team. But champions rise above them. Take a look at the loses New England has endured and over came. If we what to be champions, this team has to find a way to play better, fill the gaps, and win on the road!!
