Drummer, sometimes I think the Dickenson - injury thing gets a little carried away. Granted, he has been hurt a lot in his career, but Dickenson was not the only quarterback to get injured this season. Allen, Burris, Joseph, and Glenn all missed games due to injury and the shoulder injury to Jason Maas was undoubtedly a contributing factor in his dismal season. Those are just the starters. Crandell had a dislocated elbow, Butler’s injuries made him unavailable for a couple of games and Pierce went out with a contused elbow. In short, at the beginning of the year, anyone picking any of the starting quarterbacks to get injured at some point in the season would have been right 6 out of 8 times. Nostradamus, where ever you are, you’ll be relieved to know that you are still #1.
You really think this Lions team has less talent than last year’s edition? Count me among the doubters on that one.
