ALL of those factors contributed to their final record. The problem is that some people, including you, see anything referring to injuries, and you lose your damn mind, ignoring any other point that was made.
Injuries ARE a factor. They're not the ONLY factor like you seem to accuse people of thinking, but they ARE a factor.
I believe in the "standard is the standard" philosophy. And I think you build a winning franchise with that type of belief.
Yes, I lose my mind when an average team blames their average season on injuries
