    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...

    Whether or not the above is correct has no bearing upon LeBeau being truthful...

    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...
    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.

    Do you really believe that everything was fine with this team, that if it just weren't for those darned injuries we'd have done what Baltimore did? 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.
