Excuses are lame and for losers...but hey, we did go .500.
"If Ben was healthy..." when has that ever happened? He's always injured. Sometimes more.. sometimes less.
"If Troy and JH were healthy"... maybe, but Ed Reed was dinged up this year and Suggs, Ray and Ngata all missed games.
As far as breaks are concerned...I don't think any play were a guy used his talent to make a play is considered a break. Tackling a DB and saving a sure touchdown isn't a break. It's using the physical gifts you have to beat an opponent.
Breaks are things like a blown call... or getting iffy calls in your favor.
Nobody is arguing that...

It's the "truth" that we would have been a Super Bowl Champion in 2012, but for the injuries? That's not reality, that's delusion.

Well then, let's make no changes, let's bring back all the same players, let's do everything exactly like we did last season, and if the breaks don't go against us like they did in 2012, we'll come out on top. Sorry, but that's no recipe for success. LeBeau is in denial, and evidently, so are some fans.
Fo Wheel, 100% correct
