Shula was too conservative against the Hawks, then went overboard against the Bills. Yet we played two good games, and maybe should have won both games. Then we dialed it in against the Giants. Oh, and we won that game.
Neither Shula nor Rivera are idiots. They saw what happens when you let Cam be Cam. This whole team plays better. I expect that same team to show up against the Cards.
Go ahead and doubt away. Me? I see a team that is playing good football. I see a team that is primed and ready to step up. This team is better than it was two years ago. This team is better than it was last year. This team is better than most Huddlers give them credit for.
And the Cards are not a team that worries me. Sad on Offense, and decent on Defense. We are better on both sides of the ball. So yeah, I expect a victory this week.
I like being excited about this team. Lots of folks like being skeptical. I just think my way is more fun. That, and I find the folks that go overboard with their skepticism entertaining. Like my nephew when he does not get his own way. Annoyingly loud, but funny none the less.
Shula's gameplan against the Hawks was solid. Players didn't execute and we lost (Olsen and Williams being to big offenders).
I think we win a ugly game....just pointing out there isn't enough respect given to our opponent right now by some.
Football is all about matchups. AZ IMO is a bad defensive matchup for us....bc of that we need a big game from our front 4.....bc if they don't show up bad teams with bad QBs will move the ball on our D. I think we get the win....just too many gloss over how good AZ D matches up to what we want to do on O
