Well...there you go
Watkins complains about Tresvillo and the blinkered 2-horse passing attack
He'll be booted just like Cobourne was...
For being right
And being so frustrated he couldn't stay quiet
Watkins is entirely correct
Defenses are not stupid
We're simply not stretching the field
And passing on almost every down
To Richardson and Green
Richardson is breaking records....hooray
In the meantime the team is fighting for their lives
Hobbled by stubbornness and rigidity
The same answer Cavillo gave to Cahoon's exact same complaints last year:
Trestman a insisté pour dire que ce dernier demeurait un élément important de l'attaque. Mais le pilote a également souligné que les ailiers espacés étaient rarement satisfaits de leur sort.
[i](Trestman insists that Watkins remains an important element of the attack. But the coach also pointed out that receivers are rarely happy with their lot.)[/i]
But the kicker and most damning statement was to follow:
Il doit comprendre que les succès de l'équipe passent avant les siens
[i](he has to understand that the team's success comes before his own)[/i]
No coach worth his salt will assume publicly that a player is complaining "merely" because he's selfishly unhappy with how he's being used...and can dismiss out of hand...sound and reasonable complaints about how a lack of balance and variety to the offence is hurting the team.
I've appreciated what Trestman has done over the years.
3 Cup appearances and 2 wins cannot be discounted or denied.
But this blinkered self-serving attitude is tantamount to throwing talented veterans under a bus
To use a current expression
Watkins is gone
Good luck finding another deep threat with his route running abilities
What do we care?
We've got the Giant's Dance
