A lot of guys are underperforming on an individual level and that's coaching. Seen the same stuff in every sport.
BWP is a different issue because his age really suggests there could be a dropoff and this is probably it. The team clearly prepared as well because that's why they picked up Jorgenson.
Every other position has guys that are proven good players and a lot of them are not playing their best. That's just an issue. It's hard to focus on anything defensively being a huge issue because we don't score goals. Our passing has gone stupid. When we do gain possession we used to immediately move to attack where now guys are taking safer passes. The opposing defense has time to get in position and we don't have the offensive talent to break down an established back 6.
And above all of that, the fight-level isn't what it should be. The only way this all works is by challenging every ball hard and not every guy is doing that. A player like Muyl will always do it because it's hard-coded into his brain but some of the others aren't quite there with it.
