From an LU perspective, the team acted like they were coming to a party in the Bronx. From an LC perspective, they were there to play a football game and proceeded to kick our butts for a full half. We’ve all said it all year – this staff has underperformed all year in getting this team prepared to win, whether mentally or physically.
Here is my Christmas wish – an immobile, strong armed QB and OC who knows how to use him. I never want to look at another QB draw or read option run again. This is not as much a slight to Shaf as it is to Folmar/Coen. The problem seems to be that Shaf is OK at passing and running, but not great at either. Perhaps this has led to the consistently strange play calling all year.
I also apologize to Wilcher. The secondary was as bad this year if not worse than last. Clearly he was not the only problem.
It appears that we may be headed into one of those dark periods against the Pards. Next year will be critical to see if this is the case.
