Originally posted by ninerjok:I do give a hell of a lot of credit to the Packers for even being in contention to make the playoffs with all the injuries they've suffered this season (QB being the most critical), but to say that the Niners haven't dealt with their share of injuries is just absolute BS. The original starting NT Ian Williams was injured for the remainder of the season in only week 2 plus we've had at least four or five other starters miss a couple of games here and there not to mention that Crabtree whose really the #1 receiver missed the first 11 games of the season and Mario Manningham has contributed pretty much nothing after coming back halfway through the season and expected to infuse the passing game with a little more production. Not to mention that Bruce Miller, the best fullback in the league, is no longer available. In the Niners system that position is as important as the tight end where on most other teams the FB has become a total dinosaur. This team's roster is just that much deeper than it has been even in the past and continues to be one of the deepest rosters in the NFL.
Most Packer fans I have met have been classy and knowledgable, but this sets new standards! Can't stand people wishing for players to get injured.
My perception of this year is, we have seriously struggled with injuries at key positions. So I am kind of surprised to read this sort of comment. Whilst I am sorry for them that they lost Rodgers, if you sink a fat slab of your salary cap into one player you have to face the consequences. I am guessing they have been watching our 2nd and 3rd string DL and thinking they were starters?
