I've already said Matt & Gary have to get better.

I just think we've seen their ceiling.
I'm not sold that we've seen that ceiling. I saw a lot of things that didn't work out for Matt & Gary in that final month.

Before going into that game against the Patriots, we all said the OL, Arian, & the defense are going to have to step up their games for us to win. That didn't happen. Derek Newton spent most of his time in Matt's lap, Arian had two good runs & was outplayed by Steven Riddley. & our defense couldn't get critical stops.

A lot went wrong from Schaub & Gary's perspective as well, I'm not saying either were playing/coaching at the level we needed for them to win. It starts with them, but winning is a team accomplishment.

Brady & Belichick didn't win the AFCCG. The biggest difference, in my mind, is that Welker, Riddley, Vareen, & the defense didn't show up.

I'm even getting to the point of considering the idea of bringing Winston back, though that's not viable on many levels I presume. Still, it's creeping into my mind.
Exactly. If we can consistently run the ball on first & second down, it changes the game for Matt & Gary.
