I can't think of any more reasons for optimism for this year. This year is toast. Its sad we had to showcase our team's amazing FG kicking because of a complete inability to score majors in the red zone. Discipline measures have not yielded results.
So good on Setta and great on Bauman in his debut but I really think that the team has to try some new things in the coming weeks. Defensively, we need better performance from the DBs and a consistent pass rush. Our returns on special teams could be better.
I really think it is time to at least PLATOON Maas and Chang to see who can really punch 'em in the redzone. The o-line gave time, the recievers were catching (I don't have HD so I couldn't say whether they were getting open)... this offense couldn't punch it in in short range. We have to see what Chang can do in the game. We have to see how he can do with the game still in reach and not just scraps at the end of the game.
