I definitely was grumbling about Shaq, and to some extent about Donte too.
Convinced we were way too thin at linebacker.
Very much underwhelmed by the trade for Darnold.
So.... so far, I'm being proven wrong on all 3 points, and I hope the team continues to blow away all my doubts.
Nothing I said before this season has been proved wrong, in fact I'm not really surprised by anything we've seen so far. That being said, I'll eat some more crow on Phil Snow (I already kind of did last year). When we hired him I thought it was going to be a disaster and another situation like with Ron where we'd be stuck with a mediocre/bad coordinator for years and years. But he was rock solid without a ton of talent last year and this year he's taken it a step further with more talent. Phenomenal choice of DC based on the results so far. I mean, everybody had us projected as a bottom 3 D last year, I thought we'd be worst in the entire league and it wouldn't be close. Yet we wound up being average. And sitting #1 in the league after 2 weeks this year. Man, what a friggin turn around from how bleak things looked on that side of the ball after the 2019 season which was a disaster.
