Now I've posted most of my game thoughts on the page so I won't
repeat much here but I will say this much. The only thing which
matters is the road ahead of this team, not the road behind it. We
have to make some significant adjustments - mostly the defensive
responsibilities from a fundamental stance. This team was playing
tough and owning the line of scrimmage in their first few weeks and
they better find a way to return to this approach along with swarming
*** Precisely. I would love to see us win 3 and lose one for the remaining 12 games.
The true test of a team and coaching staff is how they handle adversity.
I think our offense was hurt by Tom having two very bad moments and
most importantly by the game plan going fubar when we were reduced to
a single tight end. The Coaching staff made a mistake in their
selection of whom to suit but it's a hard prediction and the injury
to Graham was certainly unexpected.
*** The bad throws plus Charlie geting a little carried away with himself, especially towards the end with those long rollout rights as you'd commented in the lobby. I cannot fault the coaches for not predicting gameday injuries.
Last point - anyone know why we can't suit our entire team for
games? Yeah I know it's the NFL policy but what does this policy
accomplish? It alienates certain players and causes all teams to NOT
have their best product on the field for the fans. Stupid rule -
time for it to change.
That rule does not benefit the consumer. Why field an arbitrary inferior product?
