Sean last year confronted players but this year it is very emotional. Almost to the point I think he is losing it. The assistances are too. This to me is not a good sign.

Re: Is it just me or??

0-4 made for lots of soul searching. Then 4-4 eased many of the concerns and glazed over most of what were open wounds. These last two losses have reopened sores that many thought were well on there way to healing. Didn't we fix this 6 weeks ago? NO! Hell NO! Just look back at our B&G posts in weeks 1-4, and how they got increasingly more positive weeks 5-8. If you took a fans poll today, half of the players and coaching staff would be looking for employment if we were calling the shots. They are all stinking up the place. Poor execution of a poor plan, a double whammy. Comments from within the organization/locker room have been well supressed, but I think we are about to see a few slip unintentionally on purpose. The frustration has got to be thick - I'm just watching it and I want to go off on somebody. We have good talent that would love to contribute, but they haven't been given the chance. They must be standing in the coaches blind spot or something. I wish somebody would just walk up to Payton and say, " Coach, can I play cornerback?"

We have good talent in a few positions, but average talent or less across the board. Behind the D line, I would keep Fujita and Mackenzie as a nickel or dime, that's about it. Their ineptitude puts so much pressure on the offense to score and lack of a consistent running game adds to the frustration. Last season looks more like overachievement due to emotion than talent and great coaching IMO.
