Imagined reactions to this week's NFL injury report:

Packers Coach Mike Sherman, reacting to the news about Randy Moss: "Yesssssssss! Who wants margaritas?"

Jets Coach Herman Edwards on Chad Pennington: "Our backup is Quincy Carter? Yikes. I wonder if Browning Nagle is still available."

Giants Coach Tom Coughlin on Michael Strahan, "What a slacker."

Chiefs Coach Dick Vermeil on Priest Holmes: unintelligible because of excessive sobbing.

Injuries are a fact of life in the NFL, and some teams adjust better than others. Look at the Patriots, who are still one of the league's strongest teams despite a host of injuries. On the other hand, the Panthers, last year's NFC champions, haven't been able to recover from their numerous aches and pains.

"It comes down to being fortunate," Carolina Coach John Fox said last week. "You get people hurt, it definitely affects your team."

The hardest-hit by injures? Carolina, Cincinnati and Miami are sharing that dubious honor by virtue of having 10 players each on the season-ending injured reserve list.
