I want better than average, I want excellence.
I don't want average as a whole, special teams being a weakness IS a hole.
I don't want numbers that are propped up by a freak like Patterson, I want them playing as a unit with consistent excellence, not shakiness and fear of making mistakes.
Every fan, player, and staff of every team wants excellence. You don't always get what you want. We could replace Priefer and our special teams would go from slightly above average to below average.
I'm not saying we shouldn't try to get better, but this perception that our special teams have sucked under Priefer is simply flawed perception.
Our special teams suck right now. This is a superbowl contending team. We can't afford to have speical teams losing games for us.
Extremely small sample size. Yes we sucked on punt blocking and FG kicking yesterday. No question. I wish we had never drafted Carlson and just kept Kai. If Zimmer decides to fire Priefer, it wouldn't hurt my feelings.
However, there is nothing to back up this idea that our special teams have sucked under Priefer.
