    Question:

    If the Baltimore Raven lost ED Reed for most of the season like we did with Troy combined with losing half your O-line, QB, OLBers, would the Ravens still won the SB?

    While the Ravens did have some significant injury losses throughout the year, my best guess to answer your question would be "no."

    I don't think DL is whining about anything. He is just pointing out how slim the margin between victory and defeat is. We certainly got breaks in 2005 and 2008 that enabled us to win the trophy. Why don't some of you think we are relevant when we played the world champions twice this year and both games were decided by 3 points ... one victory for us and one for them?

    I am still amazed that some posters think they have even a thimble full of knowledge about football that DL has. You guys must believe those Holiday Inn Express commercials.

    If #7 doesn't go down with a major injury this past year, this team is playing the Ravens in the AFC championship.

    Funny how doom and gloom settles in and memories of the early part of the season fade. Not having a legit/solid backup this year hurt this teams chances as well as the attitudes of Wallace and Sanders. Heath Miller was unstoppable until Ben went down.

    Unfortunate they both take/took a beating.

    Injuries killed our momentum, we were running the ball, passing the ball, winning TOP, then the bottom fell out.
    I wonder how these teams would fair with major injuries on their team AND to key players.

    Every team has some measure of injuries and adversity to deal with. Is it always distributed fairly among teams? Of course not. But regardless, if we want to win, we need to learn from our failures, make needed changes, and work to improve. Don't know that coming up with excuses really helps in any of that.

    Our franchise QB misses 3 DIVISIONAL games.. plus all the other injuries.. If Ben stays healthy, chances are we make the playoffs and win the division..

    All teams get injured but losing ur 2 X SB winning quarterback.. is different.. oh well.. better back ups next year..

    OTOH, refusing to acknowledge all of the reasons why it happened isn't helpful either...

    Acknowledging problems is one thing...making excuses is an entirely different matter. What's being said is that everything was fine with this team, it's just that injuries happened and fouled things up. Whatever happened to "the standard is the standard" and "next man up"?

    But hey, we've really been a Super Bowl team for the past 13 years...it's just that most of those years, we've been unlucky when it comes to injuries and other things; if only we'd had a few breaks here and there, we'd have 17 Lombardis in the trophy case...

    "The standard is the standard" and "next man up" is what we call "coachspeak", which is what you will hear from coaches during the season...

    What LeBeau is saying is called "honesty" or "reality", which we do not hear from coaches until the offseason, if at all...

    Now, if you don't like to hear honesty (or reality), that's fine...

    But, whether or not you like to hear it, it is still the truth...
