At the beginnind of the season i looked at the team and the schedule and thought
the defence, which i admitt i thought would do better, has guys coming in at key positions (safety, corner, MLB)
the offence has a new QB and a new OC. wow that never looks good for the start of a season. going to take sometime to get everyone of our guy on the same page.
Special teams - WOW two rookie kickers and we traded our return specialist.
so i thought what should i expect:
2-2 after 4
6-3 after 10 weeks
7-2 for the second half
really who cares if you win at the beginning of the season ask BC what being 10-0 does for you in week 21+
any post season success, including a home game, will come from the play down the strech. 20 weeks is a marathon not a sprint, and the key to winning a marathon is dont get to far behind the leaders and surge at the end.
here is to the riders running a marathon, the leaders are in sight (a game back with a game in hand) keep pace and surge in the second half.
