Funny cuz yesterday i read a few balls got picked and a few more got dropped. Offense owning the D might be a bit of a stretch
I would expect this until the strap on the pads and get to hit each other. When they can't get physical the d is always at a disadvantage.
The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"
It's early but if this trend continues either 1) Our new WCO is much better than we thought or 2) Our reliable D is not nearly as strong as advertised.
Could they be missing YB's leadership at safety ? With Clemens already hurt maybe no one is stepping up.
Maybe the translation to the 4/3 is not going to be as smooth as expected.
Or just maybe it's day one and some of the hams (Sean Smith) were too busy possing for the Hardknocks cameras. i expect the D to take charge and dominate especially early. Starting with day 2.
We lost Bell and we know we have issues at FS also. No surprise. Also, moving to 4-3 will take some time; regardless of how many think we played it a lot last year. (We were in a nickel in those cases, not a true 4-3.)
"May the acorns rest in peace..."

No where did it state that Clyde dropped a ton of balls yesterday. The article says that the qb's could not connect with Gates and he was wide open.
Looks like the problem is with the QBs timing right now, not Gates' alleged stone hands.
