I think they have crap programs this year. The long program in particular is a disaster-- the music doesn't go anywhere, the choreography is all one note. I'm sure Chris' injury has set them back, but she has been making her fair share of mistakes as well this year, including on the throws. There was no pressure on them last year and now there is an expectation that they should make the Olympic team. My guess is that they are feeling it and that's the biggest reason they are struggling right now. I think that second spot is wide open.
