With the same (and better) player than last year, special teams are terrible. This is an issue of system/training rather than the players suddenly turning bad.

In hindsight, we should have stuck with Kruger for another season. He definitely did not get a fair shake, with just half a season.
Hindsight? Changing coaches after a 48 game season in which the team did better than it had in years was a joke from the start.

These being my initial reactions, of course I was shouted out of the thread with several suggestions I was being negative for the sake of it.;

Gotta love it.

MacT should know better. WTF?

The number 1 concern I have with this group of players is their accountability to coach, any coach. Because they know damn well who walks the plank here everytime.

This is a cluster****.

Fun to look back in past threads sometimes to see how much some opinions have changed.
