    Yeah, we're so filled w/ injuries in the secondary and LBs that we have to pick players up weekly from our practice squad and pray no one gets hurt again. We should be getting Duncan and Hall back in a few weeks which would greatly help our already desperate depth situation.

    We have little depth on defense, especially with those key injuries, and there really isn't a lot of experience at Safety behind out starters either.

    We're pretty thin at depth on the defensive side, too. Only five freakin' linebackers, and one (Pisa Tinoisamoa #50, keep an eye out for him) is already hurt. Thank gawd he'll be coming back this week.

    And please, don't mention Jamie Duncan's name around here.
