Still trying to figure this last month out
I know Reggie's injury is part of it and the rest of the guys are I.R are taking a toll, but .....................
The defense is only missing a few parts and that's a normal, every week scenario in the NFL, but they are being shredded, can't stop the run or pass
The special teams have been going down hill
The offense is a complete mess, Luck hasn't even looked that good, can't say their is no running game, because there never is when you are getting blown out
It "looks" like a team that is clueless....not even sure they would be favored in the NCAA, at this point
It "looks" like a team that is not prepared and/or has very little talent, I never thought a Pagano coached team would like this bad and other than the players on I.R, it's the same group that beat some of the leagues best teams, so it can't be lack of talent. All teams have off weeks, but not sure I can recall a team that played so well, look this bad and it is very bad, it's not a few plays, or parts of the team looking bad, it's a complete-overall lack of productivity and execution
I keep hanging my hat on those few games when they seemed to play complete team football as a reason to stay positive, but this has been going on too long, I prefer to be realistic.
There has to be something very critical to playing sound football, that is lacking, I have not figured out, what that is.
Last week I mentioned just get into the postseason and .............you never know
The play of this team the past month gives no reason to believe they can win another game....but there are plenty of mediocre teams in this league, so it is possible
I am hoping whatever it is that is lacking, can be turned around, there is enough talent and I do think Pagano is a very good coach, so ..we will see how the rest of the year developes?
