Another webzoner coined the "Pain Train" moniker for the 2011 Niners a few weeks ago. It's never appropriate to celebrate injuries of any kind, but it is newsworthy to note the carnage that the Niner D has been inflicting. I've been taking notice of the toll that the Niner D is taking on opposing offenses. Back in the day, it was always considered to be a good schedule if your team caught a team, after the Chicago Bears had "softened-up" that opposing team in the preceeding week. It looks like the Niner D is developing a "we'll-put-the-hurt-on-you" reputation of their own. I've probably missed a few of the players who have been knocked-out of action this season by the Niner D, but here are a noteworthy few. Feel free to add others that I have missed.
Detroit - RB Best out with concussion
Tampa Bay - RB Blount knocked out of game with leg injury and did not play the following week.
Dallas - QB Romo suffers broken ribs and punctured lung. WR Austin knocked out of game and did not play the following week. RB Jones roughed-up.
Seattle - QB Jackson roughed-up, RB Robinson knocked out of game.
