    Eli Manning
    Brandon Jacobs
    Kevin Everett
    Orlando Pace
    Mike Brown
    Jason Ferguson
    Lito Sheppard
    Yeremiah Bell
    Dusty Dvoracek

    All of these guys are out for a significat amount of time, most of them the entire season, and Everett out for the rest of his life.

    We walked away with a WIN and no huge injuries. Al Harris was the only one who got banged up a bit, but he came back in the game so I suspect it's not too serious.

    Jason Spitz left as well, but that doesn't appear to be serious as well.

    PHEW!

    Let's hear it for Rock!!! I would give the guy a high five if I didn't think he'd dislocate my elbow. Our new weight training program rocks. Our players are JACKED and far more durable. Free weight training is statistically proven to decrease the incidence of injuries.

    I am thankful. And I feel terrible for Buffalo's Everett. The latest story I read today said that his life may still be very much in danger. A spinal injury such as his can actually worsen and threaten breathing and other life functions. Need to have some positive thoughts and prayers for him.

    Everett goes without saying. Seeing that just makes you ache inside.

    I have to say I feel bad for Mike Brown. That guy is just such a great player and he cannot buy a break. He is fun to watch and is ALWAYS around the ball. A turnover magnet.

    I don't like the Bears but I hate it for Mike Brown.

    I heard on the radio 20 minutes ago that Everett has movement in his arms and legs, and his surgeon is now cautiously optimistic that he'll be able to walk again.
