We lost Hodges for the complete 2010 season. No coincidence we missed our first finals series in about 20 years.When comparing 2010 and 2013, I look at the attitude on the field.
While we wanted and tried, but couldn't in 2013... there was no effort or will in the 2010 team once they lost their captain.
The injury toll in 2010 also wasn't that bad (except for the loss of Locky), as most injuries were relatively short and not compounding, as was the case in 2013.
If Hook doesn't deserve credit for 2011, let's remember that Wayne took us to the 2015 Grand Final with a roster almost completely assembled by Griffin (Blair and Boyd being the notable additions).
Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending Hook. His lack of football vision severely ground my gears, but at least he was capable of putting a team on the field that produced the effort I demand from any player wearing a Broncos jersey, and he suffered more from the departure of Locky than Bennett's shadow, in my opinion.
