KITCW might be at fault, closing
Some of you may think that the flaw is ours; that they are doing a great job but we are blind to the progress. Possibly, you think the job was good but the injuries robbed us of seeing the genius moves in play? Or like some, you value the “stability” factor over talent, results, or objective assessment of the personnel.
We have insight into our own flaws. We did see Quinn and Patricia filling some holes in the offseason and that gave us some hope that the roster was heading in the right direction. It may be, to some extent, but after watching the team on the field, it obviously is not keeping pace with or closing the gap on its division foes enough to say that the last offseason was a huge success.
If they had earned an 8-7-1 record after the way that they started the year, it would’ve been a good year. The new parts just wouldn’t have pushed us much farther than that. Remember that the team was a nine-win team just two years ago so going backward in their record, or staying even, roughly, is tough to sell as a great job.
Just a couple of weeks ago, we did say that there is some improvement in the roster but that it is not showing up on Sundays. Some improvement is just the roster getting younger, too.
In closing, while we don’t wish ill on Mrs. Ford, she brought attention to herself by issuing the open letter. We’d much rather blame Quinntricia, Pasqualoni, the players themselves, or the media but Ford has asked us to listen to her. Whether or not she has earned your trust is something every fan must decide individually.
