Injuries to starters
Lack of Quality Depth

I can and WILL play Redskins games too in the future...
My point there was that we lost 7 definite starters and a couple of runningback contributors, and yet people keep saying "we should overcome it anyway." I'd like to see every team take the same hits to their depth chart we have and play at that same level. Are there teams that would? Probably. Are they the norm? Most definitely not.
For another team, imagine the Giants lost JPP, Tuck, Rolle and Phillips (who is already out), on defense, and Nicks, Brown, Wilson, Locklear, and Bennett on offense. Would they still do well? Probably they'd do decently on offense, they'd still have Cruz and Bradshaw, and their Oline isn't really good to begin with, but on defense, losing JPP and Tuck, and losing Rolle over the top (in addition to Phillips who they are currently without) would make things very difficult for them, I'd have to imagine.
Only thing that shouldn't be compared is JJ Watt and Carikker. Maybe if Carikker was compared to Jared Crick or Earl Mitchell.
Redskins 2013 Opponents:
Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
Our biggest loss to this team was Orakpo. I mean other than that I don't see how injuries have anything to do with it. Yeah we lost Carikker, but I mean is DT our biggest problem. We have by far the worst secondary in the NFL. I mean It makes me sick to watch them. As for the offense I blame the play calling. Your only going to be able to play like a college offense for so long in the NFL. The coaches need to let RG3 pass in the pocket more and need to run Morris more. This 3 players in the backfield and option offense is getting old. With that being said its hard to do much on offense when you have to score a TD on every position, because the defense is so bad.
The main thing is, pretend they lost a starter on the Dline.
D. None of the above.
In three years mike has assembled a line that struggles in basic pass protection
We can run and so can they, but its a passing league.
I wonder if Mike will admit the game has changed significantly in the past decade. Heck, he abhors hurry up and must be one of the few coaches to do so.
5000 passing yards from all last year playoff QBs (everyone but Timmy) says a lot to me.

This game is not only about talent. It's also about scheme and coaching ability. As was proven when our defense gave up 12 receptions to Amendola in the first half. Yes, that's correct 12 catches by the Rams first receiving option. Coaches will usually make adjustments in their play calling or assignments when they continually get beat. I have yet to see it from our staff.
I voted for injuries as I think it has had a huge impact but obviously our record is a result in some combination of all three.
All of the above
The secondary is terrible and I had little confidence before the season with Meriweather and Jackson as our starters. It's a toss up wether we should focus on getting better targets and protections for RGIII on the offense or if we should just cut loose this all time NFL worst defense and start new with free agency and draft picks.... I think I'm leaning toward the latter and hoping these dropped passes are just a bad streak and they will work themselves out.

As of 6:15 PM EST on Monday 11/5/12, Jim Haslett is still employed by the Redskins organization. SMFH
I voted for lack of quality backup and that's due to the $36M cap hit.
Jim Haslett is a horrible coach.
