    Bottom line is we have scrubs playing every skill position. So it's a bit delusional to think we'd be ok. Yes. Texans. But still, scrubs. We can't just throw anyone out there.

    It's good reminder how important Neil O'Donnell was for us. We don't have capable backups this year at any position. O'Donnell ended his career with the lowest interception percentage in NFL history, averaging just 2.11 interceptions for every 100 pass attempts.

    The kicker that bonked the fg to beat the colts last year. I did it for laughs since our kicking game was so bad in 2018-2020. Just never got around to change it.

    Yea. He came in and held things together when McNair couldn't play. Won us several games.

    I still think it's the training staff needs to be looked at. It's too many sprains and hamstring pulls that some could be avoided. We have 5-7 players hurt a week.

    Tammy easier could have thrown 4 or 5 or 7 interceptions on his own, but both balls to Dez likely would have different results if thrown to guys that have worked with him more.

    If you are letting the ball fly before your guy comes out of the break, your guy needs to come out of the break.

    I agree we missed AJ (was AJ's injury a training staff caused injury?), Julio and Johnson but what lost that game were stupid mistakes more than anything. The weather probably played into it as well. We had the touched punt, an int that almost got returned for a TD. A stupid middle run on 4th and 2 when the defense was stacked there. We basically did everything we could to lose.

    On defense all we had to do was keep Taylor in the pocket. He is a short QB who excels when he gets out on the edge both running and passing. Forcing him to stay in the pocket and throw from there should have been the #1 priority and 2 of his TDs were scampering around the edge.

    As for the frustration over injuries and thinking this is a training staff issue I', very doubtful our training staff does much if anything different than any other team. It is just a combo of luck and wrong place at the wrong time.

    We don’t have capable backups but yet we are on pace to play more players than any team in NFL history and we are leading the AFC at 8-3.

    You must have missed the 6 games before this one.

    Our backups have played well. It’s these 3rd stringers and guys signed off the street with no practice reps that are the problem.

    In summary..... we have scrubs at all positions, a crap training staff that gets people hurt, a horrible coaching staff and a GM that is clueless. Did I miss anything the kiddies want to complain about?

    Bottom line with the weather, injuries and the luck we had in the previous 6 games finally came to a head and instead of things working our way everything went bad. It happens. Should be a wake up call .
