Sure the game might have been different with Brown in there and Shazier, etc So what? We are missing essentially our entire WR corps by far our best pass rusher and our best tackle. Injuries are part of the game.
Well, if we just narrow it down to the fallen troops who were available heading into the game (AB and Burkhead), the loss of AB was a bigger factor in the game than the loss of Burkhead. Rex is a good RB, but 84 is the best WR in the game and was an MVP candidate.
