There are a lot of circumstances that lead to a failed season. No doubt, the coaching is one aspect that needs improving, but it's not the sole reason, just as injuries have played their part but are not the reason the team appears to be underperforming.
There really is a fine line between success & failure. Coaching, injuries, and perhaps one of the most important reasons, the deterioration of the quality of play from some of the older guys who used to be our 'dominant' guys- Hampton, Harrison, Keisel- while the younger guys have not stepped up their game to compensate.
If it only takes a missed block, a missed tackle, or a dropped ball to change the outcome of a game- it's a difficult feat to overcome even 1 of the factors Chadman listed above, let alone all 3.
Schiavone's Race Career:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...
Tomlin fan here as well....but something is wrong...how do we beat good teams on the road and lose to the bottom dwellers on a consistent basis....
I don't know who to blame...but I wish someone would get this fixed!!!
I will say I was not a fan of him going for it on 4 and 1 at the 50 before half time...based on the performance of the offense I felt we had no chance of converting....
