Singletary warned everyone that Alex and the offense was not ready to open it up, as many fans and media members were screaming for.
What happened? Did he cave to the fan/media pressure?
I can understand the fans screaming for the offense to be opened up. The average fan sees a little success, and thinks that means simply by opening up the offense Alex is going to look like he did in Utah again. Not exactly realistic, but hey we're fans, not coaches.
As awful as the offense has been, I think Sing was right all along in that it had to be opened up slowly, and players needed time to adjust to that style. The coaching staff also needed to open it up slowly because they had to have time to see which plays were working for which guys, and allow them to play to their strengths.
I don't want to make this a Sing bash thread, because I think he is a very good leader. I do however think the decision to allow the offense to throw so much today was an example of the coach caving to pressure. I just don't get it!
