KOC gives me more hope than Zimmer, but I feel like he has only been able to mask Kirk's weaknesses, and that may only go so far.
After seeing the video BEO just posted on Kirk, along with Kurt Warner's analysis on Kirk a few weeks ago, I feel like it's somewhat predictable what we are going to see with the team, especially if not everything is functioning.
It's unlikely Kirk will lift the team, but he can do enough to beat any team on the schedule, as long as KOC calls a good game, and most of the parts are functioning.
I have low expectations for the playoffs, but you just never know. Just make the playoffs, and anything can happen.
Apparently Kirk is one of the few QBs with any weaknesses? I remember Mahomes getting pummelled when his Oline didn't hold up either.....an Oline that doesn't hold for 2.3 seconds is every QBs weakness.
Terrible comparison. Both Burrows and Mahomes have made it to SBs with real bad OLs.
As bad as ours? Hard to tell ... the OL affects the QBs play and the QB affects the OLs play.
I look at it differently than that; we played Cincy even and they made it to the Playoffs with one game to two game difference.
Razor thin margin that Zimmer failed at last year with a horrible defense, a horrible Dline, and poor game management.
I look at it as a very good ass whooping. Ingram, etc. on the Oline and the defense were embarrassed. 2nd time this year; after the embarrassment against the Eagles our Rookie HC, etc. made changes. Lets see what happens against NE.
We know 3 things for certain against that Dallas team....1) you cant run medium and deep pass routes like you can against most of the NFL 2) you have to run more and run effectively (GB did) 3) you can't consistently run the soft shell. Your defense is going to have to take some chances.
