Injuries shouldn’t be used as an excuse Dan Leberfeld

This excuse isn’t going to fly. Most teams are dealing with it.

As Tony Dungy always said: “No excuses, no explanations.”

Talking about injuries.

Injuries are a part of the NFL’s fabric. Look at the nature of the sport; one of the most violent games around. Of course there are going to be injuries.

So you deal with them and move forward, and never use them as an excuse.

If you think your favorite team is the most ravaged by injuries, just look around the league.

Regardless of injuries, you still have to figure out a way to win games.

There are SO many teams with SO many injuries.

Just look around the league.

But as good football cultures always say: “Next man up.”

And they never bring up injuries as an excuse, publicly – ever!
