Sure we have some things to work on but who doesn't? Fire Raye? C'mon seriously. We went in to a tough place to win and guess what? We won. Quit being such f**king buzzkills.
Winning isn't everything. Playing well is everything, because the winning will take care of itself if you play well.
How about just about every season for the last 5 years?
For example, last year, we were 2-1 to start the season, but didn't have a good pass rush or OT depth during that stretch which was foreboding.
Jennings goes down and then we are in trouble, combine that will lack of pressure and we end up 7-9.
The year before, we won our first two games, two UGLY games. The defense held the team up by a thread in both those games, just like they did last Sunday.
All fans want is a complete EFFORT. Forget talent.
If the coaching philosophy depends upon the defense to stop the other team most of the time, I'm sorry but that is a piss poor philosophy.
We can actually be a GOOD team, if we would only allow our offense to take what the defense is willing to give us, rather than force feed the running game for no reason other than to be stubborn.
If we maintain this absurd offensive philosophy of "pound the ball" we will not have a winning record this year.
We are crippling ourselves again.
If we think 3n'outs, end-arounds, and "pray for a defensive stop" is winning football, then yes, I will say it, I could do a better job play-calling then Jimmy Raye.
