But the personnel problems have been more or less isolated to WRs and OTs and S. And then depth at OC and ILB. Given the extent of the damage at those spots, though, the 3rd and 4th string backups have actually played ok. It's just not reasonable to expect us to go 3 and 4-deep at those positions.
So, what you are saying is that it is talent, coaching, execution and injuries?
