    Shawn Watson did a miserable job tonight. Teddy is saving his job for him.

    Special teams coach should be gone in the morning.

    Offensive line is loaded with talent but VERY poorly coached.

    Defense looks fantastic! Defensive backs are the best we’ve ever had.Front Four fabulous!

    A win is a win. Go Cards!

    Couldn’t agree more with tomS. Special teams execution has been hold-your-breath for three years. Some excellent players, but consistently inconsistent–scary, even.
    So reality was a bit of a cold shower. Did we think we had already arrived at the top of the game? Most sober folks realized we need to be deeper, stronger, faster, more skilled, better coached at some positions.
    The question now is–will CS take us to the top? Will he make the painful decisions? I’m very pleased with our kids and their effort. I’m waiting now for CS to show his stuff.

    IMHO Watson is only here because TB keeps pulling his butt out of the fire. I don’t think I’ve seen an OC as bad since Krapthorpe was calling the plays. He has all the play-calling imagination of a squash. I honestly think throwing a dart at random plays taped to a dart board would be better. Hopefully he will be gone after this year.

    I know Teddy checks to other plays, but still his options are limited by Watson’s lack of skill.

      Maybe we shouldn’t fear him getting a head coaching job then?
