None of those numbers really seem out of line.  The team is just...bad.  And what makes it worse is that they're so clearly relying on those players that are playing bad.

Ignoring the positions where they don't really have any choice:

Jeremy Hill - starter
Brandon Lafell - starter
Michael Johnson - starter (although playing ok)
Pat Sims - starter
Nick Vigil - playing a ton (starting?)
Adam Jones - starter
Dre Kirkpatrick - starter

Now i'll buy the argument that if you bench some of those guys, the replacements would go from average grades to poor grades from being overexposed.  But probably not all of them.  And at this point, they don't have much to lose.  Time to play all the young guys and see what 2018 will look like.

Though naturally this won't happen until week 15 when they're 4-9.
