Gradkowski - 11 attempts, 53 yards
I'm not sure that type of "dink and dunk" offense will ever be effective even when he "first game" excuse is gone.
For a team that had so much trouble last year (4-12) to start its first game this year so unprepared was very disappointing. Did they coaching staff not hear that the lockout ended 2 weeks ago?
I hope I'm just overreacting to a meaningless preseason game. I don't really care about the loss, but I admit that how it occurred does bother me. Given this franchise's history thought, I'm not sure I am overreacting.
