I usually avoid ninertalk on sunday and especially after a loss like today. But IMO there are alot of positive things going on this season that are MUCH more encouraging than anything we saw in the past three seasons.
I am really happy with what I am seeing on offense. At this point there is real reason to believe we have football players in ASmith, VD, and our WR's. This is great because we really need those high draft picks next year to fix our remaining holes in the roster and not revisit these positions over and over. Plus since our starting WR's are a rookie and 2nd year player, I really feel we have alot of upside at that position in the future. We have some gaps on the OL and RB to fill but this is a managable problem now. I am not a huge Jimmy Raye fan but at this point I really hope he stays another season. We've seen the results of switching offensive coordinators every season and hopefully with some continuity year over year the offense can show the same kind of overall improvement in execution the defense did with Manusky.
Frankly in 2006 and 2008 we were a worse team than our 7-9 records would let on. We got lucky those years and overachieved. This year is different. This year I actually believe we are BETTER than our 5-7 record would indicate. 6 of our 7 loses were by a TD or less. We used to have blow out loses 5-6 times a season. We're still a young team and our most important pieces still have alot of room for development/improvement.
blah blah blah blah blah
Oh jeez, how grown of you. I personally agree with the guy
I hope we are in a position to get Berry!
