We had a season with 15, if I recall correctly.

(I forget when, 2004 maybe?)

Falcons had seasons like that in 05 as well. No excuses. Good teams overcome it.

That can be true, but I don't put as much stock in it as others.

When you look at the teams that make playoffsand/or the Super Bowl, you'll find in the majority of cases the teams that are the healthiest tend to be the ones that hang around over teams with arguably more talent, better coaching, etc.

No, it's not an excuse, but to utterly discount the effect of injuries is ludicrous.

I do agree but the Saints weren't doing anything special before these guys went on IR was my main point.

I don't know...I mean when we had that problem in '04 what was once a Super Bowl team was turned into a shell...if not for some fantastic play by Delhomme and Muhammed having his best season ever, (and Nick Goings of course) then we'd've probably gone like 1-15. We went 7-9 anyway. :rolleyes5:
