Which is why I didn't want to bring it up at first because I knew he would have a legion behind him and the thread would be derailed, but everyone kept acting like Morgan was a saint, well yea he was, but I'm talking about the literal one, and that posters were attacking him for no apparent reason when that wasn't the truth. Anyway, back to your regular scheduled programming.
and we're all the better for your dedication to your mission. lol
no reason to push anyone at this point. what's more important is what's happening in the classroom. on the field is just running through the motions. I'm not real worried about any of them missing out or missing reps at this point as long as they're learning.
I wouldn't buy into what they're practicing now. It's not a game. Only OTA's.
Smitty could be on WFNZ another week, and say they ran mostly passing plays, or executed them first.
Come on This is just practice.
No matter what glowing results Smitty may have or doesn't: We'll find out during the actual games, when every thing is fluid and dynamic.
As far as Chud. The less said, the better.
yeah, my comment was made before context was added. pantherfeez added the direct quote from smith about shula and put it in proper context compared to the OP which provided none.
they are doing it because they want to get it right. people have been taking a couple obscure comments about the run game and spinning into us being a very run heavy traditional ball control offense when it was just tobert saying that shula came into the RB room and said that one thing they are going to do is run the ball. if there's one thing they're going to do it's run..and that's pretty much verbatim.
all that I've gleaned from a few comments is that they intend to be more efficient and more balanced and make the most use of the talents they have on the roster and they are bent on fixing what was obvious to the players didn't work, and that's a positive thing to me.
my main concerns about shula are still unchanged, same with rivera...it's the in game management and playcalling that i have my doubts about.
i feel better about the management of things right now, but yeah....it's still OTAs. bullets aren't flying so I'm still going to be measured in any positive things i glean from whats going on. right now it seems the coaching staff is doing all the right things and the players are responding positively, but it's easy to look good right now because it's just practice.
