Let's ride a comet with Jack!
If you value Watson's health you get rid of OBrien
That boat has sailed. Like it or not OB is here.
Best we can do now is improve scheme, play calling, position specific coaching, rg upgrade, and the surrounding talent.
-scheme should be tailored to give dw early outlets rather than the late route combos I keep seeing. I've no idea if we incorporate hot routes after all the snaps I've watched under ob and that's just disheartening. Blitzs CAN be beat fast and consistently with the right scheme. Can ob do that? Can the players execute it?
-rg. Fulton is the weak link and has the smallest investment (by salary and draft value.) Spend a higher pick or secure a fa.
-improvment by surrounding talent. Better play by te's will help and we have a young group I expect to get better. Better rb play will help dw even more.
-play calling. Could it help? Damn right. Do I expect Ob to change much here? How could i?
-position specific coaching. Last I saw Devlin is still here. This is a tragic miss. If we were going to get a new ol coach we wouldve done it by now. This ship has also sailed.
All that said, we have young players I presume will get better. We might get more talent at rg and better performance in surrounding positions like te or rb. But - our coaching remains the same. From ob to Devlin to scheme to playcalling, nothing has changed.
My forecast for next year is more of the same. We MIGHT trim a few sacks off the final stat sheet but we wont see significant improvement.
