That is not to say Woicik or any one person is to blame, but just like the coaching staff, there are certain expectations of the training staff as well. Sometimes, good coaches get replaced due to poor performance when it is not their fault, but the NFL is a results driven league.
Not to compare myself to these athletes, but I tore a hammy 20 years ago that still gets tight and pulls my lower back out from time to time if not stretched regularly. Maybe some of our rash of hamstring injuries has something to do with guys who have recurring hamstring issues, like Miles Austin.
