    Never want to see an all purpose good player like DiGiorno go on IR but that makes that LB position paper thin for the Bills especially since Crowell was gone months ago and DiGiorno was in there to help out - Any more injuries to that area brings up the practice squad LBs for them.

    Looks like injuries adding up may very well set the Bills on a descending course from the AFC's best teams as of now.

    Yeah, what is it with the Bills' LB corps? Last year Posluzsny went down...this year his replacement from last year....

    bud, we lost our starting QB and the league's best player, our starting RB (over rated as he was, yet still the starter) and our starting strong safety for good. why are you bothering with bills? i'd be happy to swap our injury list by position for theirs any day

    Seriously, I can't think of a team harder hit than NE has been this year.

    I agree but you have to admit that this year has been hell on a lot of teams with the rate of injuries that have occurred.

    Yea, I don't remember ever seeing this many players carted off fields. I wonder what changed.

    I'd give up our entire lousy LB corp to get Brady back.

    I think Denver has to be given some consideration.

    What's the matter? The Pats didn't embarass you enough Monday night to quit rooting for them?

    Anyway, it looks like what happened to the Bills last year is starting to hit them again this year. Sure their injuries don't even compare to our's in the slightest but if they keep losing defensive stars like they did last year then they aren't going to last long in first place. Still though, I can see the Bills at the very least competing for a wild card spot this year.

    "Why is he bothering" to discuss breaking news about a season-ending injury on the team that's a game ahead of the Pats in the standings? Umm...

    And the Cowboys had 11 pro-bowlers last year.

    Pro-Bowl selection = high opinion from fans/opposition

    Every team has players that are stars in that area or location. More or less what I meant.

    I have news for you. Angelo Crowell is a damn good LB. Digorgio filled in nicely until he went down last year. Donte Whitner is a damn good safety. He was out last year. Who cares about the friggin Pro-Bowl. Its a popularity contest. Fact is that those 3 guys are very good players and they were amongst the many players that the Bills lost last year.

    Crowell and Digorgio are again out. That puts a huge dent in the Bills LBing corp. If you can't give the other team some credit, then you shouldn't speak at all.

    Whitner wasn't out last year and Digorgio is a backup / special teamer. Crowell they thought so little of they put on IR and ended his season when he needed surgery that would have kept him out only 6 weeks. Get your facts straight, bud.

    As long as the Bills don't have Junior Seau's cell phone number and the fact that their depth is thin is not the worst news in the world,although I do feel for Crowell who is a great player in this league.

    Although Seau would never play for another team then NE

    You sound like you know a lot about the Bills. Maybe you should start following them. Hopefully, they won't "embarass you".

    Amazing what you can find out with one google search. At least I take the added seconds necessary to make sure my posts are accurate.
