I think we have made strides, but we have a long way to go. Realistically, I can't see us actually being serious contenders until the at the very least the 2013 season. The team, including the coaching staff, is just too new and inexperienced. The coaches have to get their philosophy and strategy together, and the players have to manifest our style (whatever that is) on the field. All facets are going to have to develop, evolve, gel and mature for the team to be successful. Unfortunately this will take time, and some of our key offensive pieces today might not be here to benefit when it all comes together.

The offense is fine running what they are doing and Cam will only get better. The Defense is where they need some Vets. People that understand what needs to be done and do it. Well that and 2 DTs that dont get blown up every down.

Still though, for this throwaway practice season, do fans get their money back?

When you lose a team with a culture of losing, you can't just hit the reset button the next year. Winning cures all, but that does not seem like it is this coaching staff's primary goal. That's why we are perplexed & pissed off.


U are so true...That is what the fans are now witnessing. There are so many postive things happening that should mean a win almost every week but the wins seems so illusive. Why? Cause it's the mentality.

It almost seems as if this team finds a way to lose...Sad, but I hope they snap out of it soon cause a rookie QB who came off a two year winning streak in college cannot do it alone.

Unfortunately this defense requires people knowing where to be at all times. Not really a good thing when you have Rookies and Backups playing. Really its why John Fox was so frustrated last year and I cant blame him. His defense requires the same thing.
