I was one of many fans who were optomistic heading into the season. Of course to say i had extremely high hopes is not the case. While they had a surprising 10-6 year in 2006, that was partly due to an easy schedule plus a couple of breaks along the way. So i was cautiously optomistic.
However now i was definitly underwhelmed by that season. Where did it go wrong?
Well i have three possible answers for that.
- We did not go after any of the free agents that we needed. We could have used Adalius Thomas and while i heard there was interest it was never really serious. The Nate Clements contract was rediculous so i dont blame them for going away from that route. We could have used some of the offensive lineman there rather than resign Clement whom i hate so much.
- Brian Schottenheimer. Where did he go? Last year was great i loved this guy. This year, ughhhhhh he reminded me of Paul Hackett. SCHOTTY PLEASE COME BACK WE MISS YOU AND BADLY NEED YOU.
- And last but prob most important, the Pete Kendall situation. 1 million dollars, 1 MILLION DOLLARS ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME. What would u rather have as a team? An extra million to add to your 28 milion under the cap. Or a solid left guard. I choose the guard. Well i hope tannenbaum and mangini learned from that and whatever they say in the public, i hope theyre kicking themselves in the nuts for not re-signing him.
I close my entry with this.
