No, I was negative as soon as Sing's philosophy was publicized and Martz was fired.
My prediction was a good start, mostly based on emotion, but getting worse as the season went on and as the message wore thin.
I was surprised it ended so early. What an unmotivated debacle. Very unexpected. I think things will pick up for the next couple of games and then go downhill again.
Davis will be the starter near the end of the year in order to try to get some life into the team and to save coaching jobs..
We got lucky with having three division games in the first four. This created unrealistic expectations and had people believing the Sing knew what he was doing. This crash was bound to happen. Motivation only gets you so far. This team just got their teeth knocked out in their own backyard. No motivation in the world is going to fix that. We need organizational changes. We need philosophical changes. We went from giving total control of the franchise to a rookie HC (Nolan) to giving control over the organization to his rookie sidekick (Sing). Is that really change you can believe in? How many times do we have to ram our heads into a wall before we smarten up? The problems start with McCloughan and extend through Sing, and if their not addressed soon, it will be the same old same old.
Just be glad we get the pathetic Texans next game. The wool will be pulled back over the eyes of many for a week.
