No. 1 – Complete Dysfunction

The biggest red flag I see in the organization right now is the chattering on both sides of the ball in the media. Not only are the players not taking accountability for poor performances, but there also continues to be finger-pointing.

In the last week, we have heard more and more about preparation for the game, and how the NFL isn’t just a business where you show up to work during practice. The fact that we’re hearing that from some guys means that there is a serious issue inside that locker room when it comes to preparation. The only thing worse that could happen is for the names of guys who are on that list to come out.

There also appears to be some real dysfunction in the coaching staff as well. Kevin Stefanski has made some really interesting time management decisions this year that leave you scratching your head. Joe Woods continues to run a vanilla defense that even an average quarterback can see exactly what’s happening and pick the unit apart.

Do you think they are making those decisions because they want to? Both of these guys have had success at the highest level and are making these decisions because they don’t trust their team.

Stefanski has a backup quarterback and has struggled to get solid pass protection all year. Woods has seen his defense have five-plus blown coverages in multiple games. He must keep this system as basic as possible just to make sure that people can line up properly.

My point is, there is no trust between coaches and players, and the more that the media becomes involved, the quicker you will see this thing fall apart. Just remember what the video from Odell Beckham’s father did last year to this team.
