Injured Saints
 
LB Scott Shanle didn't return for the second half...

WR Devery Henderson received a knee to the back of the head and didn't return...

CB Johnny Patrick had to be helped off the field and didn't return...

That's another injury to each position group...

Now you know why Coach Payton always kept lots of WRs, DBs...

These injuries are really starting to take their toll as the team, especially on defense is needing time to gel...

Seeing Patrick go down early in the game was really disappointing, but hopefully it isn't anything too serious and he'll bounce back sooner rather than later.

The Patrick injury hurts the most. With Greer out that leaves us starting our #2 and #4 CB, which leaves us with our 5th and 6th CB to play nickel and dime.

The Henderson inujry hurts because now we have no speedster that can catch. Joe Morgan disappointed yesterday and the usually reliable Colston looked aweful.

Losiing Shanle hurts only because we were already thin at LB. But from what I saw we could pull 3 vets off the couch and not do any worse than what we saw yesterday.

I'm worried about Henderson being sidelined for a loooooong time by the league for the potential concussion thing with that injury and the new rules. Like the way they wouldn't let Pierre Thomas back in the 49ers game.... They are going to stick it to us, on that one. I would not be at all surprised if the league doesn't allow Devery to come back in for 4 weeks or more.

Move Jenkins back to CB and start Quddus. Jenkins can't make less plays at CB. Sign Plaxico. Another big body opposite Colston is needed.

I was also thinking about the Jenkins move back to CB during the game, but I wonder if that would work with having played FS for the past 3 seasons - he would have to unlearn/re-learn a lot of stuff to make it a success.

Henderson is a big loss, especially if the other guys have the catching issues that seemed to be rampid yesterday. Any defensive injury hurts, we are way to thin already there. Other guys have to step up, they made it to the 53 roster for some reason, time to prove why.

Why do peolpe keep saying this, he was thrown 2 passes. TWO..one he should have caught and the other is debatable. He is hardly the person to single out. But apparently, singling out the #1 receiver on our team is no bueno.

Colston looked like he was scared to get hit.....and Colston has NEVER been afraid of any kinda of contact. That was really wierd for me to see. Also one of the few times I saw him get emotional on the sidelines after that fumble in the endzone...

Offense should take this whooping as a lesson. These defenses are trying to hurt us when they hit us even more now, probably because of the bounty stuff, and partly because with these replacement refs they can get away with some of it. Our skill players are gonna have to just suck it up and play just as physical. Cuz its NOT going to get any better.
