Good god. Does anyone know off hand how many original week 1 starters are not starting or no longer on the roster/ir as of week 13? And secondly, how that matches up to the NFL average? I'd be very curious to see those stats. I know everyone has injuries, but doesn't it seem like this has been a really bad year for us?

Every year we have the banged up O-line. Never fails.....why can't we have a healthy o-line??
It's the law of averages. If X amount of players are going to get hurt in a given year, odds are the offensive line is going to get hit pretty hard. If you keep ten linemen, that makes up a fifth of your roster, FAR more than any other unit.

True franchises don't build 5 good starters and "hope" none of them get injured. They understand that men who weigh north of 300 pounds have a penchance for rolling their ankles, buckling their knees, or throwing out their backs. And they also understand that these injuries, which may be healed in days for people under a buck eighty, might take weeks to get these big boys off crutches. True franchises built up 3 great lineman, 1 good one, and six average/serviceable ones. They sacrifice one or two great starters in exchange for the depth, so that WHEN (not if) one of them gets hurt, there isn't too much of a drop off.

Because we didn't have an offseason.No training staff. Browns a fighter though. He's been fighting through injuries all year.

Well said VT. Thats what's killed us...it's not our starting line, but the lack of depth due to the **** pile Shanny inherited from bug eyes...
