I like all these comments on how Ovie isn't who he used to be...
Guy gets over 100 points for a long ass time. Then they face us in the playoffs. They lose. They overhaul their entire game plan. It doesn't work because they were built on heavy offense. New coach comes in and is supposed to clean up a huge mess but is struggling.
Yet, Ovie's bad... Please.
Look, I'll agree that his contract makes me cringe. And what we'll have to give in return is a major turnoff. Say he won't fit in with the system. But to say that Ovie isn't who he used to be because their team isn't playing great and it's been 3 seasons they're trying to fix it without much success, is...well, just stupid. It's fairly obvious he's not meshing into the system because their team is not built for the gameplan they want.
