    Last couple years have been bad. But you have to go back to 2009 to find an instance where we lost a good QB for the year etc. IMO we've been pretty lucky in terms of season ending injuries to top players. Injuries that hurt us in their respective seasons last 10 years are Pennington, Long, Tannehill, MacMillan, Pouncey, Jones. Guys like Misi, Cameron - you can argue the next man up was just as good. This year is shaping up to be the worst since '93 when we lost Marino, Vincent, Offerdahl for the year and we had a SB caliber team.

    Great opportunity for Eric Smith. He performed well in the first pre-season game, and the roster is opening up for him to make the team and maybe get some meaningful reps. If James' injury causes him to miss some games, Smith may even get some regular season time starting. Let's see what the kid has. James was a mid-first round draft pick, and we may move on from him after this season anyway, since he hasn't really been a success. The door is wide open for Smith.

    Tanny had best QBR but he never throws TDs in red zone just dinks and dunks between 20 and 10 to boost stats

    Very ignorant post fueled by an agenda. See previous post about cutler in the red zone for further proof.

    I've never been on the football field and said hey, I'm going to get more comfortable shoes, be right back and never come back. WTF kind of team is this?

    He supposedly had a foot injury and wanted more comfortable shoes. Is this really an issue for you?

    When thinking about getting upset over injuries I remember that even if everyone besides Tannehill was healthy we would still have Jay Cutler who will only be good enough to just barely lose the games that will be the difference between a 10-6 season and a 6-10 season and I realize it doesn't matter anyway. I'm just gonna watch them play this year, not gonna get emotionally involved when my least favorite football player of all time is at the helm of my favorite team.

    Well Ajayi had 6 red zone tds, Williams had 3, drake and Tannehill each had 1. Moore only had 1 red zone td from Ajayi so I'd say 11 to 1 could explain those stats fairly well.

    Plus Adam Gase rates Tannehill much higher than Moore. Hell he even brought in Cutler because he knows Moore's limitations. So to sum up, we have a noted QB guru that is being paid millions of dollars that Disagrees with your agenda driven, stats in a vacuum augment. So there's that too.

    Paper cut or maybe splinters in his *** from sitting on the bench.

    I guess you get it now. btw yes, it's really an issue for me. In 35 years of being a fan, I've never heard of so many injuries in a training camp. I get the hint during games when players wave to the sidelines and limp off the field, but I've never heard of going to the locker to try on "more comfortable shoes."

    that's the day and age of social media for you. I'm sure people limped off the practice field in the 90's and early 2000's too, but nobody ever heard of it.
