    We all knew this situation but Reiss does a nice job of tying it together and comparing it to 2003 and 2005 season totals.

    Actually, if they get in the playoffs, the superbowl is a pretty good chance IMO, and even the AFCCG is more than most people would have ever expected with all the hurt players. (except me ofcourse, I guessed it from the begning cuz im the biggest fan ever!)

    So should we add 14 on IR to the record tracker?

    Here's hoping we don't beat the 2005 record!

    I wouldn't mind if we beat the 2003 record if that means we win the SB!

    That's what I call, PERSPECTIVE.

    With ya, in every way. Enjoying this year immensely, whether we make the playoffs or not. Love this team as much as all the other teams we've had since 2001. Actually, since 1973, when Mack Herron got me into the Pats in combination with the Bill's constant blackouts.

    And yeah, why not? Seen it before.

    As for number on IR in the NFL...wjy do I remember some Eagle team having almost 20 a ways back...there were rules as well I BELIEVE in the 80s..90..I THINK about how many players could be on IR...there was an actual number and I didn't follow the team as I do now..so I don't remember details...I also remember that one could risk a player taking them off IR and if he cleared waivers they could bring him to the 53..I can not recall who the Pats did that to..but essebtially the lost a decent player for nothing..pretty dumb..AGAIN..I do not recall

    Right, there's teams in 2008 that have more players on IR than the Pats do (Bengals, Ravens, etc.), nevermind in past years (2005 Eagles, 2006 and 2007 Bengals, etc.)

    But it would still be a franchise record.

    At least they don't have the Bengals' 22, or Jacksonville's 16.
    Any numbers easily accessable for EACH team??

    I'd love to see a comparison to other teams in the NFL this season, and over time, and the records of all of them.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see the Patriots among the winningest of teams with 14 or more IR players

    With number on IR??? Not sure...there were some teams in the 70s 80s that had a lot...although rosters were smaller..different era...different rules. What is not good is that many of the rules that existed are not available..current ones and teh past decade...but 70s 80s 90s?? not...Maybe a record for the last 8-9 years..

    You maybe right in terms of overall players on IR, this is the Pats highest total since the current injured reserve rules went into effect in 1993. So the most in the last 15 yrs.

    I thought 2005 was worse in impact because it was mostly defensive backs and we had no depth at running back.

    Correct. It should be more about impact players then getting the IR numbers higher with scrubs. I like how Reiss breaks it down by lost games by starters only. That would be a good stat to see compared to other teams.
