Don’t know about you, but I’m gonna give everybody a pass this year. It’s been a train wreck. Coaches, players, FO, everybody.

Well, you can give them a pass. I won't...and I sure hope that Stan won't either.

Injuries aside, I think that there's plenty to evaluate in terms of FO moves and coaching.

1. No shame in losing out on re-signing Von Miller. I believe that we made a more than competitive offer and the Bills just made a better one.

But knowing how critical that position was to our playoff run, it's difficult for me to believe that they pivoted so quickly to acquire Allen Robinson. That was NOT the move to make.

2. Once it was clear that the OL was in trouble with injuries and we couldn't pass block worth a darn, where were the play-calling adjustments to factor that in? Evans (and other guys literally picked off the street) starting in front of your just-extended $40M QB? Sure...have said QB continue to take 8-step drops and sit in an empty backfield. What we thought would happen to Stafford DID happen. Where was the short game. How come every offense we face can develop a quick game to mitigate the effects of Donald in a week's time, but we can't for an entire season?

3. Staying on the offense. I still don't see any development in our rushing attack. Want both our OL and QB to catch a break? Why not develop running schemes that don't involve the RB getting hit before they reach the LOS? Does McVay actually need Todd Gurley talent to make his running game work?

Sorry, but I saw a lot of hubris on display this year that contributed to this dismal season as much as the injuries.

  Yep. Lack of offense killed everything this team had
