I do blame Bob Sutton to a large degree. There are obvious issues aside from Sutton though. We could not get much pressure at all once Houston and Hali got injured which exposed our secondary. We need a pass rusher much worse than WR. Any offense takes longer to gel and work better. The offense should improve some just because of that. It also takes a WR a couple of years to impact the game as much as most other positions.
We also have to replace Hali and have leverage against Houston. Dee Ford accomplishes all of those things.
