Definitely both teams had big losses, it's crazy that the Packers limped their way to the SB and won it. Really impressive. But I also think having arguably the top QB in the NFL helps with that. I don't like ref excuses but at one point I just gotta look back and wonder what anyone could have done working with that. Rather than injuries being the problem, I would venture to say this shows why Jerry Angelo can't be a GM.. depth is essential and you need players behind your starters who can come in and be respectable at the very least.. and we didn't have that. With the depth we're sporting now even a string of injuries wouldn't be a viable excuse if Tuckers unit was still bottom of the barrel. But last year? I don't blame Tucker for that. I've got my eye on him for sure, but I'm also giving him a clean slate. I don't think anyone in the NFL could have salvaged that defense when you look at the whole picture. He's got his own scheme and a big infusion of talent. If they don't perform this year then by all means ax him. But last year? To me, it was a wash as far as evaluating his coaching goes.
