Remember last season. Riders looked terrible in Toronto in Week 2, looked better bit still a bit sloppy in week 3 loss to Lions. The problems were very much the same. I remember vividly John Chick in the ocker room saying "we're close. We just need to be a little bit better everywhere. It's not just 1 thing." It's eerily similar.
Then the had a bye. They came out of the bye and destroooyyed Toronto and Ottawa and kicked off a 7 game win streak.
Maybe they just need to hit the reset button. They don't get the bye this time until Week 8. But they DO have a long week losing last nite (Fri) and not playing again until Sun. Why not give the guys some time off? Just go home for 2 or 3 days and forget football. Come back on Tues fresh and ready for good focused practice. Dressler, Chick, Labatte, Fulton, Brackenridge, all these guys have been through the ups and downs and have lost 4 (2013) and 5 (2012) straight on THIS team before. They know that it has never been the end of the world before. It doesn't have to be now.
They have a good room I believe. I mean I'm not in there, but from what I can tell the attitude is as good as it could be hoped for. There's no finger pointing (or at least none public) so that is a great sign.
Go home. Relax. Watch a movie. Play with your kids. Forget football for at least 2 days. Hit the reset button and erase the bad corrupted data from the hard drive in your brain. Come back refreshed.
