We were 2-0 (both in our division) under Hostler too and that didn't turn out so well.
Let's not be naive.
I don't have any major problems with Raye at this point. I like the idea of sticking with our base packages and involving the tight end more that is certainly an improvement from last year. Our OL still has major issues. This Crabtree pick is looking like it could set us back for years since we didn't grab Oher. I hope Pashos can pick up on things quickly, he's a league average RT which is better than what we've had the past few years with Harris, Sims, Glassman & now Snyder.
Shaun Hill has maybe 2 plays a game where you wonder if he's a high school QB. These throws from the far hash to the sidelines are barely making it to the other hash mark. His arm is really brutal. The good news is, he really comes across as a "smart" QB who can really avoid making the major mistakes. Alex, JTO, Rattay, you name 'em, post-Garcia this team was held back by QBs that always made big mistakes in crucial parts of the game.
I think this team has been winning in spite of the offense not because of it. That's not a bad thing per se, but there definitely needs to be improvement on the line and in involving Josh Morgan more. We're setting ourselves up nicely to be like the Steelers when they drafted Big Ben, or the Jets with Sanchez or Ravens with Flacco. Good D, strong run game etc. The only weakness with bringing in a young QB next year is the line still needs to form up. The Jets, Ravens and old Steelers had great lines that protected the QB. A FA signing at RT in the off-season could help solidify things, maybe a strong LG to replace Baas.
