Early Odds and Ends

Eddie Williams on the offensive optimism:
“We know as a unit we can move the ball. Even our coaches say that they see it in everyone. Everyone is more confident in their blocking, not shying away. We’re going to move the ball.”

Datone Jones on his expectations:
“I’m not trying to break even. I’m not trying to be average. Every day is a grind for me. If I mess up on a drill, I want to restart the drill. I’m not trying go break even this season. I know Brian Price and Reggie Carter and all the others have public spotlights. I’m trying to do the same thing.”

    I really believe this offense can come together during the second half of the season.
    We have to stay away from t/o’s and rely on our D and kicking early.
    Offense is like wine, you can’t rush it but the right ingredients are there.

    I like the aggressive optimism of these 2 dudes.

    Talk is cheap, Williams. Block somebody, dammit.


    Defense in any sport will be ahead of the offense.

    Pitching (defense) in baseball is ahead of the hitters in April, May, June, but the hitters catch up in the dog days of summer.

    In football, the defense is more emotion and power, and that can be captured in the first weeks of practice. Offense, however, requires precision blocking, correctly run routes, and good timing by the quarterback. That takes time.
