Is Sunday the day for all of the kids to come out in force in NT? I am not normally able to get on NT on Sunday so all this crying and whining is new to me. At first I thought I was in Raider Nation. Negativity, threatening to quit being a Niner fan and Alex Leaf boasting are already going strong.
Reality Check everyone, If you did not expect a game like this to come happen from Alex, you were a homer. Several people called this in NT. Maybe not for this week but it has been said that he would have a game where he would really struggle. What we need to be considering is not if the sky is falling on us but rather how our team reacts to such a performance. Thursday will be a big game in that we will be able to see just how they respond to such a let down.
The reality is that our boys did some great things out there tonight. There were flashes of great plays that we have not been very accustomed to. The reality is that for the first time in a long time, I have hope. For the first time in a long time, I think we have a chance to win any given Sunday. We have a talented team, and Yes, Alex is not that bad, not great but not that bad. I have been a harsh critic in the past but his mistakes are mistakes that can be fixed. With timing, trust in his receivers, and more time from his Oline he can pretty good. Anyway, keep looking for the sky to fall, but I am eager to see how these guys respond on Thursday!!!!
