Thanks for asking. Quite honestly, there is nothing that can be done at this point. There is no one to promote from within that can run this team and bringing an outsider in, mid-season, is not an option... it just doesn't happen. Capers has done a good job of putting people around him that are less competent than him, so his job security (for this season anyway) has been secured.

With that said, they should not get a pass or a good grade because they performed better than the first two games which were horrendous performances. Don't forget that a bad Buffalo team looked like Super Bowl contenders against these guys.

Ask yourself this... when they had similar offensive performances last year were you praising them?

Really a B-.
We started out with a couple of roll out passes for great yardage, 15-20 yards on each. Pendry got away from the roll outs the rest of the game. I couldn't understand dumping something that was working for us????????

I gave Pendry and A. Here is why. I graded him and not his players or the refs. He called a very good game his mix of run and pass was good. I was especially impressed with the upgrade Tempo of the offensive unit. I thought the the things that he controlled. (play calling, tempo, formations, Personel packages) were excellant. His game was light years ahead of Palmers. Next week I will have to include more of the players in his grading as they will now have had a "Pendry " game under their belt and he will be more responsible for their game play and decision making (especially Carr).

Great game Joe now it is time to start scoring points.

Other wise I think a C+/B- would be more fair with the time givin. O-line has issues he is going to have to Draw up plans around that problem.

I gave him a D+.

The offense looked somewhat better, but Domanick only had 19 touches. David Carr had 7 sacks, Chris Brown only had 1 field goal attempt, and we only scored 1 touchdown.

But there was improvement from Palmers F--.

I would give him an A, but he still working out of the SAME PLAYBOOK! Someone needs to change that thing! Carr is still getting sacked, and AJ is still not getting the ball. The only thing we really improved was our confidence and execution. THat's huge, but there's still a long way to go, and I wonder how he will change our offensive system throughout the season and coming into next season. Hard to imagine him keeping Palmer's playbook in hand.

But I do credit him for doing his job though. He said they were going to run the same plays, just the level of execution was going to get better. In that sense, he did his job very well for his 1st game. Now he just needs to work on the playbook. It looks like we're trying to be the Broncos, but with MUCH less talent. And it's not like the Broncos are that great of a model to follow; they haven't won in the post-season in forever.

I gave him a C. He didnt have much time to work with but we did show a marked improvement, even if it was against a defense that doesnt hold a candle to Pitt's or Bufalo's. I liked all the motion and shifting that was used. But when it comes down to it, we still lost the game. We still only scored 1 touchdown. Davis didnt go for 100 yards. Carr didnt throw for 200 yards. Johnson saw the ball very little. We never went deep. Pendry improved this offense, which i graded as an F- during the pre Pendry era. Looking back on it, I believe he deserves a D. Untill I see us put more than 10 points on the board I will be very critical of Pendry. Hopefully after this week I'll be grading him with an A+!

I gave him a D. While they are progressing, they did get only 10 points. I'll start believing in our new OC when I see out scoreboard with 21 or more points on it.

I like the guy, but an A grade?? If we put up 400 + yards and got in the endzone more than once then I could see giving him an A. Putting up 200 yards and only getting in the endzone once is a C grade at best.

A's and B's for a guy that coordinated 250 yards of total offense and couldn't find a scheme to keep a team with 2 total sacks in 3 games from getting 7 sacks.

Not sure, I was pleased that the offense did enough to keep us in the game, and frankly if it hadn't been for that stupid fumble call by the refs we probably could have won or at least taken the game into overtime. That said I'm sick of this overly conservative (see boring and Tressel ball) offense that we run.

I'm hopeful. I enjoyed seeing some of the changes Sunday. I'm will to give it a few weeks before really passing judgement, but so far, they did look better.
