I have to admit, I thought the defense would be better…. 👀

 

nah, mines about the same. I thought our dline would be dominant, secondary would be at least pretty good but our lb corps would hold us back and be a weakness. And I’ve been critical of Shaq for a while, he’s playing well this year though. No denying that.

I actually was worried that the o-line would collapse and lead to Darnold pooping the bed any time we played a good defense. Well that was wrong. The o-line is somewhat holding it together, and Darnold, although not lighting the world on fire, is playing like a good quality game manager. 

However, we have what appears at the moment to be easiest schedule we have ever had maybe in franchise history until we play the Bucs twice close together. It's easy street for a LONG stretch coming up. We need to rack up wins.

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.

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.

I was glad we cut Joey Slye because he couldn’t consistently make extra points. We brought in two new kickers and both of those jimmies have missed extra points. Our current kicker has a weak leg on kickoffs and signing Slye back is no longer an option. To make matters worse we’re stuck with the current guy for two more weeks.

I will not passively say I was right about anything..so far, just straight up:

 

-I was wrong that Bayless or Saunders could beat Zylstra. 
 

-Was not thinking Darnold would be this confident this early. 
 

-I thought the Bronco Sport was gonna at least be okay and not a pansy wagon.
