This team is a team full of hard working, second tier players. It is not a bad thing. “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” The thing is, this is the NFL and when you only have maybe 4 out of 22 (11 on both sides of the ball) players better then the opposition, hard work loses 3 out of 6 games. We are a good TEAM. That does not mean we are a winning team. Look at Dallas and Philly. Team chemistry is low but they can score with the best of them and stop the best of them.
Let us not kid ourselves. How many playmakers do we have on offense? NOT ONE!!!!!! Maybe Fred Davis. There is the problem; our TE is the main playmaker. Every team has at least 2 playmakers that aren’t the oline or TE. Not my skins.
Trent Williams was not worth the top pick, but we needed oline help badly. Our receiving corp. is mediocre. Hightower shows flashes but only averaged a little over 3 yards/ carry prior to the game. Look at torrain last week. As much as I hate to say it, Beck was a playmaker last game and last week with his scrambling. We have a core of players. This next draft, I expect to see playmakers in the first few rounds.
Things I have noticed
Adem Carriker has 5 sacks (leading the team) and Rocky is leading the team in tackles. Aggressive DC but CB playing soft?(off 5 yards or more on WR). KS is the horrible at calling plays. We pass excessively, especially in the second half. People can run it down our throats and we cant do a damn thing about it. We are a ZERO threat offense.
The more things change, the more thins stay the same.
