Re: Make it 9
The effect of the "character" and "chemistry" will always be debated. And I agree that, in terms of X's and O's, it was the bad defense that cost the team the season. But I still contend that, even if they had slipped into the playoffs with a 9-7 record, they would have done so with a team that has 12-4 talent.
FWIW, I am not really up in arms over Joseph's act of getting caught with weed. I've never used it, but I also think that our society is a bit too stressed about it. The thing that bothers me is that whatever Marvin has said to his players about staying out of trouble is not getting through.
