I'll give a pass to 2004 because of no Thomas/Maggs but the other years were just choke jobs. If they finish those seasons out then we wouldn't need to be having this conversation.
Goes back to not having enough organizational depth and talent throughout the roster.
The team has had the fewest injuries in the game for a long time. But the roster is too thin and the starters, while solid, get tired.
I don't see it changing much until Jerry retires. Sorry.
