Full Version: Couldn't have said it better....

For me, the lack of oline continuity, the poor play from the guards, the rusty QB play from the guy who hasn't taken meaningful snaps in 2 years, the miscommunication with new starters at 10 of 22 spots, is all to be expected. It was foolish of us to think that having an oline where no one has ever really started next to each other before would look like a well oiled machine and have no issues with trust, communication, and continuity. It was foolish for us to think that a 31 year old journeyman with 8 career starts and whoever ended up sucking the least of last years 3rd string guards would provide top notch guard play. It was downright silly to think you could change out 10 of 22 starters and just hit the ground running. It was way overly optimistic to think Bradford could miss 2 years of action, learn a new system, recover from a second straight ACL tear, only start taking 11 on 11 snaps in early August, throw 15 preseason passes, and immediately look like a top QB. That a rookie, a 3rd round overdrafted WR and a Riley Cooper would immediately present problems to opposing CBs. That Zach Ertz could have hernia surgery and 3 weeks later, with no preseason with his new QB immediately be a matchup nightmare with great chemistry with his new starting QB. Literally, all the execution problems look painfully obvious in hindsight. Shame on us for being such homers that we didn't see most of this coming.

Thanks Jernst
Yep, I got all caught up. Now it's time to be realistic and understand that "it ain't over 'til it's over."

RIP Yogi.
