Get Out Your Flux Capacitors Folks . . . . .

. . . because we appear to be going Back To 2013.  We began 2013 with a MNF thumping at the hands of a Pennsylvania team, and followed it up with a game we could, and should, have won.  But penalties, a sieve‑like defense, and going 3 of 11 on third down, killed any hope we may have had.

 

Fast forward to 2016 . . . obviously Sunday’s loss stings more because of WHO we lost to, and the fact that I still see DeSean Jackson running free behind the Dallas secondary in my sleep.  Where is Captain “You Like That” Kirk?  He looks tentative, indecisive, passive, and radioactive – okay the last one doesn’t make sense, I just couldn’t think of anymore “ive” words.  And now come the rumors that the rest of the team has lost faith in him.  I don’t buy it, and while I am concerned he looks more like First‑Half‑of‑2015 Kirk, it’s nothing a decent running game can’t fix.  He needs the running game to take the pressure off, and to set up play action.  I think he’ll be fine.

 

Our running game is another story.  I must admit after the game, I enjoyed the poetic justice of Alfred Morris scoring the go ahead TD.  Someone still needs to explain why it was “either” Morris “or” Jones.  In this league you need to be at least two deep at RB, and we aren’t even one deep.  Jones is injury prone, and I have yet to see him attack the line.  He may be convinced he has the speed to beat anyone to the edge, but I haven’t seen it.  And even though the game was close, we only ran the ball 13 times and passed it 46 times.  Where is the balance you preached, Gruden?!  We were 2-6 in Red Zone efficiency . . . that means 4 times we were inside their 20 and came away with a big steaming bowl of no points!  Unacceptable.

 

Watching the remaining games on Sunday ‑ ‑ because I was too inebriated to leave my house ‑ ‑ I was struck by how fast other teams’ defenses play in comparison to ours.  They swarm to the ball, run through people, show emotion, and most importantly, create turnovers.  Ours, not so much.  In our last three games ‑ ‑ all at home ‑ ‑ we have given up an average of 34 points.  I don’t care who your QB is, you can’t win when you have to score 35 points.  We have absolutely no pass rush, and outside of blitzing on each play, I am not sure how we’re going to manufacture one.  And to add injury to insult, Kedric Golston was placed on IR with a torn hamstring.  Due to the injury, there is a push from the players to bring Pot Roast back to plug up the middle, but so far, management doesn’t seem willing.

 

This week we travel to NY to take on the 2-0 Giants.  While undefeated, the Giants aren’t exactly setting the NFL on fire.  They beat Dallas by one point in Week 1, and the winless Saints by 3 on Sunday.  Of course, all eyes will be on OBJ and Norman – Part 2, which will be key, because the Giants are averaging 35 pass attempts through the first two games.  Eli is about as mobile as a tetherball pole, so hopefully we’ll be able to get some pressure on him, force a few patented Eli interceptions, and take advantage of the turnovers to get a W.  If we can, we will be fine.  I don’t see anyone running away with this division, but we HAVE to have this game.  Do you hear that Mr. Barry . . . let’s try putting our best guy on their best guy!  What a radical concept……

 

The last time we started the season 0-3 was 2013, when we went on to finish 3-13. We have too much talent to go back there!
