Phil Emery has a common theme across all/most of his DL additions: non-stop motors (effort) and games played (limited injury histories). Has anyone noticed this?
Houston has never missed a game. Jared Allen hasn't missed a game in years, if ever. I'm not sure about Young or Izzy but don't recall the latter missing many. Additionally all of these guys are branded as being relentless defenders. We all know Peppers would vanish for stretches of games. I always thought Wootten played hard but I wonder if there was something on tape that stood out. Conversely, it very well could be the hip that scared the team away.
I just found the common thread here to be interesting. Let's just hope I didn't jinx anyone.
