This team looked bad today... But I feel like it’s poor preparation, or maybe an underestimating, something like that. There is skill to be seen on both sides of the ball, but it’s super inconsistent. Also, we’re missing so many guys due to injury/suspension.
I think there’s a real truth to saying that this game was not as close as the score, despite us trying to make it feel that way. We gifted them 14 points due to bad Peters play.
I just don't get the play calling...on either side. You blitz the holy bejezus out of a freshman QB....and when the OL is your biggest strength....you POUND the ball until the obviously weaker defense can't move anybody. Peters clearly needs the threat of a run to give him time in the pocket. Play. Action.
Glad I could only follow the game on a gametracker. I'd have been irate watching it live.
To play that poorly and win is a huge luxury which won't be repeated. Warning lights all over. Glimpses of what they're capable of on both sides of the ball, such as the second quarter. Lock-down defense and effective, drama-free offense. And then we got long looks at what they're capable of, such as the first and third quarters: penalties, drops, poor decisions, gifting points and all manner of self inflicted wounds.
One of those teams needs to show up and stay. The other needs to go away forever.
