And I would agree. (Did I just type that?) BUT
and there's always a BUT
he can't do that this season. So he stocked up on big nasties in the trenches because like all wise coaches he's been following the board and has heeded steelb's passionate rant about doing same. This team is built to run it down the opposition's throat and make them like it all the while stifling whatever they try to do as an offense.
When he does get *that guy* or groom one of the whippersnappers he already has in the fold the air raid will commence.
My opinion, as stated prior, is that that's not going to be until midseason at best. I believe it's going to take that long for the 0 to jell into a unit that can be trusted and has shown that they can be on the same page and think as one.
Till then: A Cloud -0- Dust!!
