Finally got to watch most of a full game.
I don't think it matters who is the QB right now, whether it is Palmer or Fitzpatrick. Nobody is going to do well with as many sacks as were taken today. Fitzpatrick may actually have an advantage over Palmer in that he has mobility. Palmer would have been a lamb being led to the slaughter in this one.
That being said, Bratkowski might be the most predictable and conservative offensive coordinator in the league. I'm convinced that with what little I know about football that I could run plays on defense that would beat the Bengals. When they ran on third down in OT I thought my head was going to explode. Not to mention running Cedric Benson (a power runner) east to west instead of north to south. Overall mismanagement.
The defense is the lone bright spot on this team. It has taken some time, but I believe Zimmer has earned his keep.
On the other side, not to sound like Rush Limbaugh, but would anybody else agree Donovan McNabb is the most overrated QB in the league?
I'm hoping for two to three things this offseason:
1.Marvin goes or gets a GM to take the load off. I can go with either one.
2.Bratkowski absolutely has to go. I can't stand to watch another week of this playcalling.
3.Get back to basics in the draft and invest in offensive and defensive lines. Build up in the trenches before anything else.
