While I will agree with Crash, that the opponents we had last night may have made a difference, you can't take away the fact that the team did look, better particularly on offence.
Regardless of who we played, this team showed last night that they are improving. We still have a way to go, but I don't think you can dispute that we are headed in the right direction. We also saw a few players step up and make some plays which will make it a little easier to start settling in on a consistant starting roster.
While we did lose, we were in this one, and had a few plays gone differently we could have quite easily have won. It's easy to say that we were at home against possibly the 2nd worst team in the league, but a win is a win for this team, and they will be hard to come by early on.
As I have posted previously, this team will start to really show how good they are after Labour Day. Until then, all we can hope is they continue to learn and improve.
