        They won.. but at a high cost.
        looks like the Rams suffered a bunch of injuries, too.

        QB Bradford - finger
        RB Jackson - Hammy

        Broncs do not have the depth to absorb a lot of injuries, either.

          Josh McDaniels brought the bad luck to ST Louis with the injuries and their first lost.

                  How so, Castillo is decent, and now your DL is weaker.

                  Kaeding is one of the top K's in the league until the playoffs, both will be missed, make no mistake about it.

                    Hmmm... Kaeding loss might help you guys as long as you get into the playoffs.

                      kickers aren't hard to replace, they're not really that big a part of the game, unless they're failing you in the playoffs (kaeding)

                      but castillo's a big hit, like i said, hopefully we reel back nwagbuo, i always liked him, and to me he was a surprise cut

                      if we can find another diamond in the rough like garay was, that would also be awesome

                        I think Kaeding is still a pretty big loss. I recall two years ago against the Bengals he made a clutch kick and makes his fair share during the season. Cowboys from last year are evidence that not all kickers on the FA market are servicable. Chargers will survive though.

                        But Castillo is a big hit.

                          that's like only one of two clutch regular season kicks he's ever made

                          kaeding a big loss?

                          i'm sorry, that's hilarious


                          castillo sure, but kaeding?


                          the height of hilarity

                              We actually ended up cutting a local kid by the name of Ogemdi Nwagbuo who has played DE and NT for us, I believe he was a victim of the roster #'s as he didn't look too bad out there in preseason.

                              I'd be shocked if we didn't pick Nwagbuo back up and Vaugh Martin (the backup who has looked much improved) would then become the starter.

                              Keep in mind, Castillo is often called "Glasstillo" even on local radio, this is not a new situation by any means. He doesn't suck, but I just don't think he is that good either. Vaughn Martin will have a chance to get a big contract and I think he'll take it. We will miss his experience and veteran presence, but I think Martin can be better with some reps.

                              If we snare a kicker who is mediocre in both the regular season and playoffs, we'll have made an upgrade over Kaeding.
