Well ticat fans, another loss under our belt, BUT don't get angry or discouraged... although obviously it is a pain in the you know what to have your hometown team go 0-4 to start the season, especially when we had such high expectations.
Why not worry? I'll tell you why...Not one ticat fan on this forum can tell me that this team hasn't improved noticably each game they have played.
Take a look at our offence last game and the previous games before that...hardly productive...hitch passes that gained nothing, draw plays for losses, very predictible. If you watched the game last night you would see us starting to throw downfield strikes for 15-25 yards at a time...pretty refreshing to start seeing an offencive component of the ball game.
What about our defence...Game 1 we had no pressure on the QB, huge holes in our secondary, and a linebacking core that had a hard time stuffing the holes on runs. Last night's game looked different to me. Our secondary looked tighter than ever, and more physical then ever. (Tay Cody's smash on Cahoon, just to name one) Mariuz looked like a man possessed to me, and deserves the start next game, along with Brooks for his play, if hes not injured. Lastly our rush on Calvillo seemed faster and stronger, maybe because the addition of Cotton back into the lineup.
HOWEVER, there were only a few flaws that really stood out, and need to be treated. The major one of the night seemed to be discipline. (Cheatwoods bonehead maneuver, the too many men call on the punt that would have gotten us 2 points) I think that all comes down to coaching though...hopefully Marshall will straigten those guys out. Maybe an issue that is more minor, but it's imparative that Kamau Peterson doesnt start. He doesn't have good hands, he isnt light on his feet, doesn't have the speed to beat a DB, and will NEVER go for a ball. If I was Maas I'd be losing my mind. Start Quinnie, thats all there is to it.
So fans, I truly believe that alot of you have lost hope in this team, and are jsut screaming for the answers, but as much as you are all going to hate hearing this, the answer is TIME. Im ticked too, but im patient as well. I strongly think that WHEN, not IF, this team gets its crap in line, which is slowly happening, we can get seriously hot, and seriously scary.
Cmon Cats fans, Keep the Faith :rockin:
