Default The NFL IS Failing

The NFL says they want to make the game more safe. In fact they have been saying it for quite awhile now, and have changed rules to protect players, especially QB's and receivers. But, imo it is failing badly. I know we are into week 10 and there are going to be injuries, but this is ridiculous. Just take a look at the number of players who are out or are questionable. The Steelers and the Bengals have the least amount of players who are out. The Ravens have a bit more, and the Browns are lucky they have enough players to even play.

Thread fail, dawg. The NFL is trying to protect players from devastating injuries and long term brain injuries. Those lists are full of guys that have "contact sport" related injuries.

Nee ner nee ner.

"Probable" means they'll probably play Wolfie. The Clowns have only 2 that are certain not to play.

Is there some sort of competition between you and coltsfan that we don't know about?
