If our O-line wasn't decimated by injuries and (easy to say now) we didn't fire Castillo, we would not be in this position. Minus a few blown leads in games where the offense was not producing jack ****, the defense was solid for the most part under Castillo. There were still a few gaffes here and there, but they were not nearly as laughable as they've been since Bowles took over.
Last year it was new scheme, new players, lockout etc. This year the pressure of expectations forced Castillo's firing and yet another coordinator takes over. All we heard was how the players didn't believe in Juan. Well, apparently they did. There's been no continuity, and no leadership.
