Let's be honest...

When watching last night's game, a few things become more and more clear. We have not gotten better at all. Can anyone sit here and name any part of our game that has improved? The o-line gets manhandled, the d-line can't get any pressure, the db's sit back in either a soft zone or off ball man coverage. On top of all of that, we continue to drop catchable balls as receivers, and above all else, our qb play hasn't even come close to being better. When are we going to wake up and smell the roses and realize that we have to move past this "local kid" stigma that is plaguing this team. At some point, we need to sit back and play the guys who are just flat out better; or at the very least prove that they aren't better so we can continue to sulk week in and week out. We have to move past this logic that we are hindered because of finances. I get it, money talks and we don't have a lot of it. But we have to find ways to build a winning program like everyone else that is lacking funds.

On the flip side, Mike Houston has got to show that he is capable of winning at this level of football. When it comes down to it, there are 3, if not 4 very clear coaches that need to be fired if this play continues. The OC, O-Line coach, Defensive Tackles and Ends coach, and the Strength and Conditioning coach. This is the same story every year, "What a horrible team, if only we got more pressure on the QB and were able to stop their front 7." We have to fix this, and Houston can't just sit back and think that the guys he brought with him from JMU are going to pan out. Kirkpatrick hasn't grown as a coach here, Williams continues to not have our guys conditioned for the games, and we can't get any pressure at the lines, so Tresh also is not preparing our guys. These are the guys we need to put on the hot seat. I understand the talk about Houston, but we can't keep switching head coaches and expect to build a program every 3 years.
