They can't be blamed for the injuries, but they can be blamed for taking Perry and Irons when they had other significant needs to address. Perry was injury prone in college, so I don't think it's a fluke that it's happened in the pros. The Irons injury was a fluke, but we could have waited until much later in the draft to address the position.
