The 2011 NFL season (and year) is now officially under wraps. 12 teams are moving on to the big dance, while 20 others head into an offseason filled with questions, stress, accusations and heartbreak.
On each of those 20 teams, there is an individual or group of individuals upon whom the blame will inevitably be placed. Fans and the media will be pointing fingers at these people who are perceived as the reasons for the downfall of their respective teams.
Even on the winning teams, there are those who hindered progress towards a better finish to 2011, and they are no safer than the scapegoats on the losing teams.
Even if it isn't their fault alone, these are the guys who are going to be (or really should be) taking a lot of heat during a very long wait for the 2012 NFL season.
That, of course, is assuming they get to stay with their teams.
