Sunderland: "Shocked at where we are. Disappointed at where we are. Nobody anticipated this."
So he doesn't know why they're 2-7. Every year someone underperforms significantly to their expectations, but usually they have an idea why. So that comment means that he's either incompetent or lying.
Sunderland: "It’s never all on one person, but the quarterback play in general just wasn’t consistent and it wasn’t to the level that we certainly anticipated and where it’s been before. We feel we can get that from Taylor."
Sunderland: "It’s a football decision. We need better play at the quarterback position and we believe we can get that from Taylor and the combination of Dakota [Prukop] as well."
So he DOES know why after all, or at least thinks he does. He needs to stop talking out both sides of his mouth. Was the QB the problem or not?
So they got beat down in Winnipeg, so Elizondo blames his franchise QB. EVERYBODY gets beat down in Winnipeg. Reilly got embarrased by the Bombers. Fajardo was totally shut down back-to-back. Masoli got his butt kicked in Winnipeg. Harris threw for 87 yards in that game. When he was yanked, Cornelius threw for 47 yards and a pick. Yea, Harris definitely was the problem.
I'll tell Sunderland why he's 2-7. It starts at the top. You hired a bad coach, Brock - AND you;re standing by him!! That's on YOU, 100%.
