That was wrong. Especially don't take what you hear on the radio as fact. Those guys are on the air in a vacuum and have no time to check out rumors or misstatements.

Probably not popular, but I'm coming around to the opinion that Sean Payton is in some way responsible for the injury plague.

I blame his obsession with crossfit....I want fat Payton back
They don't do crossfit any longer. landing with a great deal of weight on your shoulder can tear a labrum. That's exactly what happened to mine.

Thanks Guido, you have given me yet another reason to hate Gus Kattengill. Man, that dude sucks.

But, I will say that they certainly DO HAVE THE MEANS. The vacuum they are in isn't that tightly sealed, they just need to do a better job of reporting the news.

I guess Peat will get his chance to shine at his natural position LT and Kelemete will be our LG.

Fortunately we are deeper and more versatile on the OL than we have been in years. Don't forget, when Armstead missed time last season the offense still clicked for the most part.

Actually, it is the new norm. I heard John Clayton on NFL Radio yesterday and IR designations are way up. Detroit lost their starting LT yesterday, as well. Lot's of injuries across the league in mini camps. Under the latest CBA this IS the new norm.

Only positive is it's happening about as early as it possible can. There's time to patch things up and recover some. Won't be ideal but better than it going down in week 3 or 4.

Losing Unger, Armstead and potentially Nick Fairley is substantial.
