We all know this is going to be a tough year as we’ve talked about it all offseason. Penalties and turnovers can be the difference in a three-point game. We still have some of the same issues we’ve had with inconsistencies on both sides of the ball and little depth right now so we have to play a more disciplined game.
I saw good things and some not so good things last night. Red zone is still a problem and the running game really never got going, so we resorted to passing and we’re effective enough to stay within three points. We have two more games to get the kinks out before we head into the meat of the schedule.
Loved the intensity of the players and the defense and the blitz packages I saw. Dawkins was the Dawkins we all know he is and we had a lot of young players on the field last night at right tackle, tight end, at wide receiver and on defense and I liked what I saw in all of them. SURE we have a lot of work to do but baby steps are in order and I know how some of you don’t have the patience for that BUT you’re going to have to to see this team turn the corner in coming years….period.
P.S.: The 63-yard kick was meaningless to me because it was against us…call me a homer?
