It is an excuse. The difference between the Vikings and packers is that we have depth, you dont. One or two of your guys goes down, and you blame it on the backups who cant hold there own. We will be without Bennett and Moe and Jimmy but we have good depth we have Wiggins who isnt the best blocker but thats why we drafted the nasty scrapper from Maryland (dugen i dont know the spelling). Then are RB we have Onterrio and Mewelde. We are missing our #1 and 2 but we're still goin strong.
Just a note:
I said a long time ago that the race between the Vikes and the Pack would most likely come down to injuries.
In the game we played, we played without Davenport (who would have spelled Green more and been more effective than Fisher) and Jackson (who is a force against the run, which killed us).
Now, that said, I'm not using it as an excuse. We lost because we beat ourselves.
But, then I don't expect to hear Bennett, Williams, and Kleinsasser et al being used as excuses either, in the event the Eagles win tonight. :-)
