There's a difference in other teams being injured, and having a team record for players on IR in one season.
To be fair, a good number of the players on IR came at the end of the season, and were just stashed there so we could get a look at some other people.
Beason, Davis, Edwards and Schwartz not being available impacted us. The rest of the list, not so much.
And yes, I do feel this organization has found injuries to be an effective excuse for underperformining, and that bothers me.
