Back in the day (years ago) I felt injuries played a big role, and I use to use it as an excuse. But during one of the Pats SB winning runs, they had a lot of injuries, and yet made it as well as won it all.

Once I saw that, then I knew it could be done. Then you had GB from last year who lost quite a few of their key players as well, and we saw how they won it all. Again I was impressed, and it showed me with the right FO, Coaching staff, and key (Eli)players/pieces it could be done.

Then we had our injuries this year. I actually wrote to Dan on the NFCE Blog, saying while we have injuries. I felt we could still have a chance to win the division and see where it takes us. I made my points about T2 and Goff.

But even when the season started we still took a lot more damage from injuries that were keeping players out for months to even back on IR like Beatty for example. At that point I figured we have a chance, but there is still a limit to how many injuries you can have to survive. I thought we were reaching it or at that point. I mean we were the 2nd most injured team in over 20 years. So it would have been understandable to have had issues. Yet unlike the most injured team and some of the least injured teams behind us. I wonder if we are the only ones to reach the SB ( and hopefully in the end win it)?

It is a huge testament to JR (even though some things I don't agree with him on (Baas)), TC and the coaching staff for really having the next guy step up, and Eli literally carrying the team throughout the year, with others helping at critical spots(points) like JPP, Cruz, Weatherford, and even Blackburn to name a few.

Thank you JR, TC (coaching staff) and all the players for showing the heart you had all year, unlike a few years back where you were missing it.

tip of the hat to the whole team and coaching staff.

but we don't make the playoffs with a ben rothlesberger or philip rivers at QB.

neither have shown the ability to bring a team back with our regular season defense.

alot of this was the quality of play of eli.

I've been really impressed by Blackburn this time around. Hopefully we keep him.

I think he is a great utility player.

While Jakk had a fetish for blackburn being a starter. I do think it was a mistake to let him and Tollefson go. As i felt both were great utility players and can step in when needed and get it done for awhile.

Also they were both good ST players especially blackburn. Kudos to them.

I can't bELIeve that Tolly and Chase were not picked up by any teams. I was really expecting to see them on the Rams with spags and the rest of the Giants third stringers.

Tolly was always a favorite of mine, especially now with the recent article about him being an Iraq Vet- Amazing.

Gotta admit I hated Chase when he was on the field outside of special teams, Booed him many a time last year.
He showed up hungry, and is playing out of his mind.

Would love to see them both back.
But, Herzlich(sp), Jones, Goff, Chase, potential draft pick.
Who is the odddman out?

We should have known it from 1990 -- when we lost our starting QB Phil Simms and our big draft pick stud RB Rodney Hampton.

And won the Super Bowl. ON OUR FREAKING BACKUP QUARTERBACK AND A WASHED UP BACKUP RB.

Tollefson was let go?Yea I believe if was brief. Either around training camp, or beginning of the season. I remember hearing about it. I was surprised when I heard about it.

I think it was once Osi went down, they resigned him, or after he went down and they moved Kiwi back. It was very combobulated times lol

I think Tom Coughlin deserves the most credit with Eli putting the polish on Gilbrides oopsie-daisy offensive calls. Our talent made up for injuries...so I guess Reese helped but we could have had better depth at LB....hence, Chase Blackburn comes in and looks like a reborn Antonio Pierce. I appreciate what Chase has done this season but it is a point to note because out LB roster is not even considered servicable...all in part due to the lack of off-season training programs for them etc.
I could handle keeping Chase but we need a younger, more talented LB that we can hang our hatr on
