It's never fun to dissect the negative aspects of a playoff team, but it's a necessity with the Washington Redskins. It's a necessity for the fans to diagnose how they believe their favorite team will play in the coming year, and it's a necessity for the front office so that improvements can be made.
The most depressing way to follow up an exciting 10-6 year would be to falsely believe that there is little to be fixed.
In that regard, the Redskins have quite a lot to fix. It's arguable that Washington made the playoffs with a combination of heart and hard work as opposed to overall talent. And while multiple players contributed prominently to the magical season, there are several who simply didn't achieve as much success as they should have.
The five players that grace this dubious list are the biggest perpetrators when it comes to poor play over the course of the year, and they are the players that either need to step up or be replaced in order for the Redskins to take their performance to the next level.
During a year when so many things went right, these players were the ones who were the biggest disappointments and became more of a hindrance than anything else.
