Major injuries this year (prob forgetting some):
The Redskins had a pretty damn solid roster coming into the season and now the 'B' team is playing.
NFL is going to go under more and more in popularity as players get more and more injured frequently, superstars especially.
Guys are too fast. too strong. Probably overtrain, bang bang sport, etc.
Obviously, these factors have always come into play re: injuries but other than freak, bad luck type stuff, perhaps these guys and the league as a whole need to figure out what about the NFL Calendar year and what players are expected or encouraged to do to change.
Seems like these dudes are just too bulky now to be that fast. So much strain on the joints and one day for no reason, pop.
It would be hard to tell a guy in a contract year to watch out for overdoing it or even obviously other ways like roids and PEDs but this year is just terrible.
I already didn't care as much about this season in general but I still follow and enjoy.
With so many stars out with terrible, devastating injuries, I lose interest in the league as a whole.
And it's just past the mid point.
Playoff rosters might just suck ass all around
