That game was a real shocker to me... not really, I think it's time to admit that we are again the SOJ. I hate to be pessimistic, as we've had several bright spots this year: Revis, Greene, Kerley, Mo-Wilk, and Harris just to name a few; but once again, we've squandered countless opportunities. We seem to have developed a knack for keeping mediocre teams in the game until the second half, not taking advantage of the turnovers that they give us, then giving them the game.
I strongly believe that we still have sufficient talent win championships, but a certain offensive coordinator must be shown the door. Sanchez, although maddeningly inconsistent, has potential. However, it is beyond me why we cannot have him playing like he did on the last drive, throughout the whole game. We need better coaching at the skill positions as well, our wide receivers do not have enough chemistry with Sanchez. The blame for this should be put squarely upon the man directing them. By week 17, there should be no communication problems between receivers and the QB; that is not acceptable. Additionally, we have personnel issues that must be addressed immediately. I cannot fathom why Mathew Mulligan continues to see consistent snaps. The man committed two bone-headed false start penalties... and a 15 yard hold. Eric Smith has no business being within 100 yards of the field.
If we can come to training camp next year with a better coaching staff, some minor personnel changes, fewer bold predictions (REX), and a hunger to win, we can do much better than an 8-8 record. Maybe we can finally get over the hump and win another Super Bowl, or maybe I'm still hungover from last night.
