If you ain't first, you're last!
I'm still here. It's not that I legitimately wanted the team to tank the season, it was more that I knew for a fact that this team was not gonna win many games, if any, with Henne under center.
This team is far from being terrible. The combination of poor coaching, lack of in-game adjustments, poor managing, and the worst starting quarterback in the league, piss-poor attitudes and many other things combine to take a group of talented players and give the illusion of a very very bad team.
With a new group of position coaches, a new head coach, and a new quarterback will create a new mentality for this organization. IMO, this team is a playoff team next year and a perennial playoff team for years to come if everything mentioned before hand falls into place.
"Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."
"We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."
"Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."
"I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."
