Over 400+ yards in the air and we couldn’t crack the RED ZONE. That’s where football games are won. WHY you might ask? Good question.
The field compresses and you have to have your A game. That’s where 3 points can kill you when you need 7. Especially when you can’t punch it in from inside the 5-yard line.
Even though we took it on the chin, I was actually pleased with what I saw most of the game. A turnover here or there and a few busted plays and busted routes, and we’re in this thing….really!!
Yes, I said we’re in this thing. I’ve said it before — TURNOVERS. Three types:
New players each year
The first as important as the other two. Time will cure the first. Discipline will cure the other two.
I’m impressed. I know a bunch of you will think I’m crazy and you want to win today. We need some time. Coach is molding his own team and if they keep this up. I like what I see. Only time will tell.
Now, yes we do need a big inside-the-5-yards back like one that left, but he’s gone so I’d personally like to see more inside trapping inside the 5, but that’s me. It keeps D-lineman guessing…advantage O-line. By the way…the young guys look good and Clady is at mid-season form….great feet and hands and body set, man I like that guy.
O.K. your turn…crank it up. I know there’s some upset folks but keeping it close against the Colts. I like it.
