The problem is not hustle/effort. Our offense is inept for 2 reasons:
1 Don't have the horses (need snipers to finish play/make linemates more threat).
2 We have D first mindset, instead of a more intelligent, balanced mindset, which would attempt to go offense as much as possible, but then recognize/respond properly quickly and fully with D when needed.
We can't out play on hustle, hope to get a goal or 2 (if lucky) then go into shutdown mode.
The "prevent" D in football is also usually ineffective.
We will improve.
We will have Hagelin back.
We need to turn Kreider completely loose, whatever the risk, with the right linemates, especially since Boyle is out.
We need a little luck and we can still be ok.
But we must make our own luck and play SMARTER.
Torts, are you listening??................
