did he even watch any of our games? doubtful!!
I think the 2nd and 3rd team offense has looked terrible, and they have had the majority of the snaps. I bet he is is just looking at the overall stats. I will say that the first team offense has looked good for the most part, only needing to do a bit better in the red zone. This has been by far the best the offense has looked. As for the defense, the first team really hasn't been on the field all at the same time, but I don't think "terrible" is too far off base. They have had trouble with all three important fazes of defense; the run, pass defense, and pass rush. Can't sugarcoat it. I think the D needs another good draft, and some time to jell, and they will be fine. Depth all around is still lacking in many areas, but getting better, with the best depth in the secondary and at WR, followed closely by the offensive line. But, if we have major injuries in the front 7, we are looking at 5-6 wins. If the front 7 stays healthy, we are in store for 7-8 wins.
