HOPE!!!

and excuse. Seattle currently leads the league in Adjusted Games Lost by starters due to injury, through week 6. To be clear, this only counts games missed so far, not games known to be missed later (like Urlacher being on IR). (For comparison, we were close but didn't lead the league, in 2008, although counting offense only we far transcended anything else ever tracked by the stat) The hope? We're one of only 11 teams that don't have any impending AGL. Now, you and I know we won't get Walter, Locklear, Trufant, Tatupu, Hill and Sims back for Dallas. We know Lofa will be out, so come to think of it the impending thing is already wrong. But it serves to illustrate, the injuries *are* enough to make a significant impact on performance. After two years it starts to feel artificial, and there's no reason to start thinking no one else will get injured during the final 10 weeks, but those flashes of a team we think really can be pretty good, is still in there somewhere, and there's still a chance that it comes out this year.
