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.
Well it's to be expected. Keep in mind, there are a lot of fresh faces trying to learn Zimmer's defense, and Zimmer said himself the other day he was going to keep things VERY simple because of that fact. Also, Jay Gruden is installing a brand new offense with a rookie QB. It's unquestionably going to take some time. I wouldn't read too much into this one game, I think they're better than THAT. Although still pretty bad
