I know we got skuta and the lemon man but what else . i know its better than last year with f**king higgins/huggins, whoever the f**k but what exactly is the plan do you think if we suffer a repeat of smith and brooks getting hurt?
You answered your own question, we have Skuta and Lemonier. We cant play the what if game, ok what if 2 OLBs get hurt, what if 2 WRs get hurt, what if the special teamer we cut to make room for both Cam and Harper would of made a tackle during the superbowl and save a return TD. Hindsight is always 20/20, all the staff can do is position themselves to be as prepared as possible for the events to come.
Cam would of never dressed this year, and injuries didnt preclude Brooks & Aldon starting every game in the post season. In the end its just math, we had 5 players for 2 OLB starting spots, compared to 5 players for 3 WR starting spots. Plus injuries to receivers have been this teams problem not OLBs.
