Unlike Tom Robinson, I gave up on this year’s team long ago. Nothing will change until the team is sold. The players and coaches can only do so much; the problem is at the top. One article I read a bit ago said that they team is comprised of second-tier players who would never be starters anywhere else. I think that’s about right.
Even so, they could do better. What a boneheaded time out yesterday! Even I knew the Cowboys were about to get hit with a 5 yard delay of game penalty. While I have no doubt that it ultimately wouldn’t have mattered, the bottom line is that Mike Shanahan should have been paying enough attention to know it, too.
In the past, I’d turn on the Colts as an alternative. Not any more. With Peyton injured, the Colts are winless.
My Sunday afternoons are better spent doing other things.
