Interesting thoughts.  Think he brings up some good points.

Re: Calming thoughts

I don't like the article, it has a very condescending tone to it.

While Kemo is replaceable, who are we going to replace him with?  I can't imagine a team dropping a DT of Kemo's caliber once cuts start and as much as I'd like to trade for a DT, its realistically not going to happen.

I agree with him that these injuries aren't the be all end all for our team, but I think he is still underestimating the severity of them.

Case in point: week 16 at Giants, 2008.  We didn't have Kemo in there and they burned us for ~300 yards rushing when we had the rest of our starting D in there (I think).  We still could've won that game, but it could've been a cake-walk if big ole Kemo was in there stuffing the middle.

Re: Calming thoughts

They always say that once the season starts a player never feel right until 2-3 weeks after the season is over---to have all the fellas nicked-up in training camp becomes concerning from the prospective that they may nag-on-them all season long, whereby you'd like to at least start the year off w/o a bunch of guys carrying a bunch of injuries into the very first game....there just doesn't seem like there is ample time to get guys to 100%...that is what the off-season is for...well see...

Re: Calming thoughts

no you're right. You may say oh ther injuries will be good for the first game but these are all nagging issues. I hope I am wrong but I think Beason is preparing us for what is to be-he won't be playing this year. JStew, Beason, Godfrey. Will we look back next year and they say, "well you know last year I was dealing with pain all year but this year Im good"?

Good point. When he first got hurt I was thinking that we'd be just fine without him, but from what I've seen from the 1st team D thus far, I realize that I was very wrong.
