It's a rebuilding year.

They've been struggling offensively.   (Teams never struggle defensively)

Their offense has been sputtering.

They're a bit banged up.

They've got some players who are ding'd up.

They've got a few guys who are nicked up.

They're nursing some nagging injuries.

They've had a few players go down with injuries.

They've been riddled with injuries.

They need to get healthy.

A week off will do them some good.

They've got to ignore the off-field distractions.

They need a win to stop their five game skid.

They're still missing a few pieces to the puzzle.

Their defense has been much maligned.

They're the league doormats.

They're the league cellar dwellers.

This team is searching to find its identity.

This team still has a lot of question marks.

Despite the losing record, they're just a few plays away from having a perfect season.

The coach has been under fire.

The coach is on the hot seat.

The coach's head is on the chopping block.

We're seeing a coaching carousel heading into the off-season.
