Sooooo a couple of things:
First, this game sucked ***. We looked bad, but didn't we all expect this with a new regime, a new system on both sides of the ball, and no money to sign good talent?
Secondly, I've seen a lot of people on this board say that the theme for this year was improvement from game to game. You have to remember that AS and TF still have that new car smell on them, and DP was retired last year. Sure AS was great at being an OC, but I would imagine that being a head coach that also calls plays, is very different, and harder. Even though DP has been a coordinator forever, he will also have to make adjustments, with him being out of football for a year, coaching guys on one year deals, that he inherited. I'm not making excuses, because as I said, the first game sucked ***.
The first game was about as bad as it could be on both sides of the ball, so the only way to go is up, right? Let's not jump to conclusions too fast.
I think we should really grade this new regime on the entirety of the season, not off of the first game.
