      Did you miss how many injuries we had last season? Of course we're grateful to be healthy, so far, we're just heading into week 7. There is still a lot of football to be played.

      Can you define "luck" ... we did hire a good luck fairy to be on the staff this season, that's the chargers fault for not doing the same!

      Remember, last season Champ Bailey and his never ending foot injury, Kevin Vickerson (great run stopper), Wes Welker missed 6 games with concussions, Rahim Moore (starting safety), Von Miller, Ryan Clady, Chris Harris, Derek Wolfe, Guard Chris Kuper, along with center J. D. Walton, Center Dan Koppen suffered a ruptured ACL, Joel Dreessen underwent arthoscopic knee surgery and missed the whole season, and now is out of the game.

      Anyway, yeah... you're not going to get much sympathy from us, or a pat on the back for being "unlucky."

          And SD is lucky to not have faced any sort of decent team since week 2. There is no point to this thread you can't control injuries and you can't control schedules.

              Please don't remind me that season was rough. I doubt for while we will see team go through 7 RB in one season.

                Yea, that season was rough, but I had a lot of fun that season for some reason. Was an exciting season. But yea, I remember going in to week 17, with that South Carolina RB. Forgot his name, but I was all hyped about him But yea, that season in the end wasn't very fun. Would have liked to see what we could have done if we didn't completely blow it.

                  Not to mention much of the defensive line.
                  The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                  The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

                    Not only that but at one time we did not have any of our starting LBs on the field. One of our FBs was playing LB at one point.

                    To add to the last year stuff ... how many starters missed the Super Bowl? Clady, Von and Harris were all top notch players. Von and Clady were already known to be All Pro type players and Harris is finally getting some reconition.

                    We have had injuries this year too...just not as bad as recent years...and people can whine all they want from other teams man we been due for a healthy year. The truly good teams win inspite of injuries like how we did last year.
                    Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

                        Be grateful for your team's health.
                        Last year we saw enough injuries that we had 7 back ups playing on defense late in the season. So we know all about injuries. As a matter of fact it was that same defense that beat the chargers in the playoffs

                          Yeah you're so unlucky to have uncovered possibly the next star RB of the nfl. I mean - Ryan Matthews has been more trouble than he's been worth anyways - so aren't you glad Oliver is carrying the ball for you guys
                          The beatings will continue until morale improves....

                              The season is very early in, and using the word "lucky" seems a bit over the top. Sure, if a team lost a handful of star players for the season, the injury comparison may have some merit, but so much can and will happen going forward. The so called "lucky" team today may not be so lucky later. Similarly, the "unlucky" team today may get even "unluckier" (using their terminology).

                              Bottom line, play hard, hope for few injuries, and regardless, adapt and adjust accordingly.

                                One thing that gets lost in all the Broncos' injuries last season is that Manny Ramirez was our 3rd-string center. J.D. Walton was the starter in the offseason, then we re-signed Dan Koppen and he also got injured. Personally, I wish we had kept Walton but that ship has sailed.
