For all of those Steelers fans crying about having so many players injured and using that as the main reason they lost yesterday, get over it! It's the NFL, and EVERY team has injuries! Here's a quick list of VERY important players that Denver was without yesterday:

- Brian Dawkins (starting safety)
- Chris Kuper (starting right guard)
- Spencer Larsen (starting fullback)
- Eric Decker (#2 WR led Denver in catches/yards/TD's this season, injured on the first play of the second quarter yesterday...thanks Harrison)
- Knowshon Moreno (2nd string RB, really could have used him with McGahee banged up right now)
- Kevin Vickerson (was a starting defensive tackle before injury)
- Ty Warren (was the other starting defensive tackle before injury)
Finally, not an injury, but still worth noting - Brandon Lloyd (former #1 WR, traded away mid-season)
This is why I find this whole "Teboner" thing assinine. I do not see tons of posters and threads where it is stated the Broncos won this past season just because of Tebow. But I do see a lot more in comparison of those that dismiss anything Tebow did and the team basically won despite Tebow even though they couldn't seem to win despite Orton. Funny thing is those dismissing Tebow as only winning against bad teams are also dismissing the entire team and this is the same group that is supposedly a QB away for greatness according to some. I doubt if Manning signs next year we will see very many posts after a Bronco win, that it was against a poor team so it doesn't really count.
