Lots of reasons for NFL teams failures

From where I sit it looks like there's plenty of blame to go around for non-playoff teams in the NFL...


Sure, the refs blew a late call of illegal formation for the Chargers against the Chiefs. Yes, Kyle Orton threw a late interception to seal an Eagles win. But neither of those can cover up the fact that a single play doesn't change a mediocre season. The Steelers can blame the refs all they want, but any team that starts 2-6 is going to be in trouble to make the playoffs with nobody to blame but themselves. As for Dallas, again, blame can be placed on Tony Romo, and he does deserve his share, but how about a defence that was incapable of holding a lead. Meanwhile, other teams have found an easy way to place the blame for a failed year. Fire the coach. Washington, Cleveland and Minnesota have all ditched their coaches and the season hasn't been over for 24 hours. Now, the real season begins and it doesn't much matter if you are the best team at home, or the best on the road, all that matters is winning the rest of your games.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
