When you have 3 guys playing one position (RG) in the same season, two of the survivors are rookies who can't beat out a previously back-up (yet).
You have a Wade Smith who played more injured than at any time in his career.
You have Myers and Brown both having not as good a year as last.
You pretty much got whipped across the board, how do you expect a lot of good out of third and long (or any situation really) is just daydreaming.
That is the truth, besides the fact that Schaub didn't play well and that the D sucked and the ST sucked.
Don't worry '76, when it all starts to click next season, they'll be back. Some won't be back until we clinch the #1 seed, which most likely won't happen next season, some won't be back until we win the AFC Championship game, some won't be back until we win the Super Bowl.
But they'll be back.
