I'm not spinning anything. I'm giving an objective evaluation of the team and management. You feel the need to make excuses for the organization and make it seem better than it really is. You make excuses, I hold people accountable. That is all.

we got 3rd stringers and PS players now playing on the D. But yeah they should be at a probowl level.

Well run teams have quality depth so they don't have entire seasons derailed by a few injuries. Guys go down, next man up, team keeps winning. Depth also directly reflects on how good your STs is and I don't think I even need to bring up how bad our STs has been for years now.

The fact that we fill so much of our team with 3rd stringers, other teams castoffs and PS guys just shows the problem. The team is unbalanced. We have a handful of guys massively overpaid taking up a huge chunk of cap space and then we're forced to fill the roster with bare minimum nobodies.

So you're saying injuries don't have an effect on a team? When the backups to the backups are injured there's not much you can do. Thomas davis obviously was a risky decision to keep. But beason was a huge blow. It affects the way teams gameplan. Im sure if the 49ers lost willis and whoever the other backups are they wouldnt be 9-1. Its not an excuse its just reality. Sure, there are quality backups in the league but when they are forced to play full time we see what happens (connor), hence why they are in the backup role

he won't get it/ he's too busy being "objective" and "holding people accountable" and whatnot.

Obviously injuries have an effect on a team but every team faces injuries. Packers had more talent in IR last year than we do now and won the super bowl. Would having no injuries helped? Of course, but we still wouldn't be a true contender or a well run franchise and it's not realistic to expect no injuries anyway.

Injuries is the excuse. Lack of depth is the real problem.

Freeman and the Bucs have clearly slid back with a coach on the hot seat. Drew brees won't be able to play forever, and Atlanta has no draft picks for 15 years for Julio Jones. We're bound to slide into an NFC South title sometime in the next 7 years or so.

Technically, injuries is the fan's excuse. Rivera made it clear today he didn't want to talk about injuries because he didn't want to make any excuses, which I respect.

I shouldn't say just depth but overall talent of the roster. Even if you have a few fill in scrubs playing terribly if the rest of your team is extremely talented you'll be able to compensate for it.

If you look at your 53 man roster with zero injuries, and it's one of the most talented rosters in the league, stacked with playmakers, you'll can lose a few key guys throughout the year and still make the playoffs. Or at the very least be in the hunt.

The Ravens just faced a very tough Bengals team with a winning record (BTW we haven't beat a team with a winning record since the 2009 season). They had their leader and HOF LBer Ray Lewis standing on the sidelines in street clothes. But they're one of the best run organizations in the league and are STACKED with talent. So they still play well and pull out a win and are now leading their division. Their fans don't have to sit around and make excuses.
