Losing the game was not impressive and I'm not happy about it. The penalties and adjustments are on the coach's. I have come to terms with the fact that our coaching staff in sub par to suddenly expect that to change is only going to cause frustration. They are not tactical in game coach's nor are they going to give us a disciplined team. If we miss the plays by a game this year here it is. Last year it was the Texans.
The self discipline is totally frustrating to me. That's the first thing I teach a team the difference between losing and getting beat. I refuse to be part of a team that loses especially one that shoots itself with by dumb penalties. We may not win every game but we won't lose because of penalties or lack of effort. The false starts, off sides, to many men in the huddle. etc I don't tolerate from my Pop Warner team. I will have them doing up downs until they can't move. It's beyond frustrating to see it from professionals. It's not going to end this season because it's tolerated by the coach's. The in game adjustments don't expect much there. I expect that to be corrected this off season by Ballard.
The most frustrating thing for me week 1 is we never had a shot. Our new GM strapped us with a QB that had no business starting. He was outplayed by an UDFA two seasons in a row. This after preaching competition and the players know blah blah blah We start a guy who had played CB for 2 weeks over our draft picks. The non challenge it goes on I'm sure you remember. It was comical and you are right there wasn't .anyway to go but up.
I was still impressed with Brissett the kid played a heck of a game. It stunk his big mistake came in overtime. If Gore doesn't get hit in the face with the ball Mewhort doesn't jump then maybe that doesn't happen. We needed 6 those guys made sure we got 3. The young guys in the secondary are talented there's a future there. Simon Woods Hank were very good the entire DL played well. George stepped up. The D played a great game man they had 3 points in the 4th. Haeg is back at RT. I don't think he's a G never have. There was reason for excitement.. There were some things not to be so excited about AC can and has to play better TY and Crief did they know it was Sunday my man JD sure did. There's a light fllickering at the end of the tunnel.
I refuse to continue to allow the short comings of our coach's ruin the game for me. I say we lost the game and focus on why we had our first round pick up at the line of scrimmage on the play Nelson catches the long ball. Why is he ever up there and Mathis in coverage. Where were the big nasties on the DL for the big downs? Why did Melvin play the whole game? The coaching decisions are going to be bad if they were better we win the game. Is that a surprise?
