Problem was team motivation and on field leadership. Vilma is in street clothes and Kromer looked like he was scared to death standing there.

Re: Hopefully this will calm people down!!

I can live with the bad defensive play BUT the "O" looked like crap.

Drew had 2 ints BUT he should have had 3 more. Drew looked uncomfortable the whole game.

The O line sucked, the running game sucked - Colston fumbled away ANOTHER BALL in ANOTHER opening day game.

Colston is becoming a pain in the buttocks. He was good for a few years but at the start of the season(s) he is becoming a major obstruction to a good team

I know we haven’t had as much success as we’d like, but the system works. Trust it. I want you to know that I would not trade any player in here for anybody else. I want to do this with you guys.’
Okay, so why didn't he just have this meeting with our defense sometime before the game yesterday?

No need to wait until week 3 this time!

Wow, really? He could have just sat this one out, he was questionable heading into the game anyway. Pretty sure he plays hurt because he is a team player. Fumbles happen, it was a good tackle that dislodged that ball and nobody was more upset about it than him. He is a team player and one of the main reasons at WR we have been as good. It's your opinion, but in mine, I keep Colston right where he is.

Re: Hopefully this will calm people down!!

We weren't able to help Spags with the draft this year. Good ol' Rog. screwed us because we didn't worship his loin cloth. Godhell took away any chance that Spags had. We're having to play football while hand cuffed and dragging a dead body behind us on the field. I know we need at least one quality tackle to help Drew but dang, we need someone to get pressure on the QB. That player isn't on the roster yet.

I still want to know why the best pass rushing DTs we have (Hicks & Walker) weren't even activated for Sunday's game....I know Hicks is raw but he seemed knowledgable enough to pressure the QB with his pure strength.

Yeah, but no one knew that until Spagnuolo arrived and worked with them.

It's not like these guys have never played the game before...contrary to how they looked the other day.
He has the core of a DEFENSE that was carried by an offense that made them go 13-3 last year.

With the way our defense has ALWAYS played, you'd think they'd never played the game before.

No but that core has been drowned on GW scheme for the last 3 years.

Learning what to do comes quick, making the new scheme come reactionary takes time.... They don't have time to stop and think which is what they are doing now.
