WE didn’t do any of what we should have done. By that I mean, playing young guys to see what we have. Instead we leaned on our starters, as we chased and eeked out a meaningless win, while nearly getting our franchise QB injured in the process.
For the first time since our five week skid began, we held an opponent to fewer than 20 points in our 24 – 19 win against the giants.
What about the stuff that the stats don’t reveal? That’s the reason for these “Four Things” articles. To have an idea of what needs addressing BEFORE the game, so that we’re forced to honestly answer questions AFTER the game.
So, of the Four Things we were looking for in this last game, what exactly did we see?
1) WR Bryce Treggs: Played some Special Teams. Didn’t see any significant time. NOT DONE
2) WR Paul Turner: Was inactive. AGAIN. NOT DONE
3) G Dillon Gordon: Unless he played Special Teams, he sat for the entire game. NOT DONE
4) DT Destiny Vaeao: Got a tackle. Didn’t play much. NOT DONE
So AGAIN that’s 0 for 4 in a week were we barely won despite playing a bunch of guys who we know aren’t long term answers.
