star, kk, alexander...all risers in my mind. all three of those guys looked good.
i liked the secondary as well. they were very opportunistic and really took advantage of the pressure applied by the defensive front which is exactly what they should be doing.
beason looked good in the little bit he was out there. i was a bit nbervous for him, but he seemed to be able to jump right back into the action.
shula scares me. that offense last night was supposed to be a glimpse into what we should expect for the team. defense and special teams looked great in every aspect. the offense....not so much. i know that the OL presented a lot of problems, but shula seemed unable to adjust. i have this feeling that my concerns about him and in-game management will be justified. i have seen nothing to make me feel like my doubts about his abilities as a play-caller will be wrong, and i'm not happy. the offense was predictable. the offense didn't have their poo together. individual players need to step up. gettleman needs to get OL help and be aggressive with getting it once cuts start coming in, but on the whole shula needs to get his offense clicking. he needs to get them better prepared and better managed while the game is being played. i know that the players like him and respect him, but if he can't manage a better game than that those players in his corner will only be there out of obligation. the respect will dissipate.
But I have a question....
Why was Shula's offense last night suppose to be a glimpse of what is to come.
2011 and 2012 didn't show glimpses of what our offense would be? We have the same HC and scheme....so why suddenly in 2013 is he suppose to do it different?
