Are we handling injuries correctly?

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

IMO if we lose Fletcher our holes in defense will be hard to over come.

I want to know WHY every year we suffer multiple season ending team devastating injuries, and it seems the more $ a player makes the higher likelihood he will go down. You know who won't get hurt this year? Alfred Morris because he needs to get P A I D. Our training staff must suck and our conditioning is not on point & I hope we have strong injured clauses.


If you go into every year with the expectation that we aren't going to lose a few guys for the season, then you are going to be disappointed year in and year out, as it sounds like you are. Why not change your expectations to bring them in line with what the typical NFL team goes through? As others have pointed out, our real problem is depth, not the rate at which our players get injured.

I said when the Shans first got here it would take 7 years. Some people were saying nah, 3 years. I wasn't even expecting the Mara/Goodell penalization. Now that we have a QB, I still expect a few more years before we are solid in being consistent winners.

+1 - Depth is absolutely key ...

Teams with good to great depth do not have as many injuries BECAUSE they have other players that can play at a similar level
P A T I E N C E - Snyder needs to just 'butt out' and give Scot time to figure out who he needs in the FO, who he needs as the HC and what players fit what he thinks is a good system for this franchise - it's a mess & it will take time
