I can say the same thing for the giants. by the time the pre-season was over with, the giants #1WR had a broken foot, and 3/4ths of the secondary was on IR. add to that Bradshaw's inability to stay off the injury list and you have a team that can't win enough to get into the playoffs.
but that is why repeating is so tough these days. you gotta stay healthy
