I know its early guys but I am already starting to get very worried about this season. lets start with the offense. Doug Martin last year had 1 let me say that again 1 fumble all year! and that one fumble in itself was questionable. (it was a goal line run and in my eyes looked like he passed the line) we enter Jets week 1 and he already has 2 fumbles...I know he just needs to kick the rust off but still man hold that freaking ball. secondly Freeman..boy oh boy I just dont know what to say anymore I want to support you but when it looks like you forgot you were playing football and thought it was soccer its so hard. (would of have been a safety regardless but still.) and that interception he threw was a ugly one at best. finally Vjax god the only actual productive member of our team last week. the only thing I have to say man is your slow! I know you make up for it alot with the jump balls and incredible grabs but you had the ball in the middle of the field and a linebacker chased you down -.-
Then theres the defense. or should I say stuntfense because we be stunting for days kid. there were alot of penalties this week. 12 to be exact, 12 penalties thats insane! I dont want to talk about the Lavonte David call because I know what I saw and I rewatched that play at least 20-30 times and I know Geno was still in bounds at the time of initial contact, on top of the fact that we shouldnt have been in a position to lose by a FG anyway.
Personally in my opinion the worst of the team week 1 was the coaching staff. "hey guys if we run more stunts maybe one time it will catch them off guard" seriously though mix of the Defense some put Bowers back in I think he will prove his worth. and as far as offense goes we run a very vanilla playbook easy to cover pass plays and always attempting to run it up the gut.
So to me it comes down to a question of who stays and who go's do you think freeman has what it takes to recover and save his starting job or do you think schiano can become a broader coach and actually shake up teams and set up mix matches?
