Yea - sorta. I honestly think that it just took Gman (my new nickname!) a few games to settle in. And, honestly - you CANNOT expect a QB who has not been part of successful (and thus confidence building) 2 minute/4 minute drives at the end of games when they are down to 'pull a rabbit out of his ass'. RW3 LIVED for that shit. EVERY SINGLE THING Gman does is to be consistent during the game so that they aren't trying to pull a 4 minute rabbit out of the hat. And, as the TE corps and the other dudes have adjusted to ACTUALLY GETTING THE BALL. Dissly? Anyone? Bueller? Things have been improving. Gee, we're actually running the Waldron game plan. Imagine that. After this long.
If you've been watching him since filling in for Russ' broken finger (insert joke here) - Gman's mechanics, process and general approach hasn't changed. I think the receivers just got more comfortable with him, and about game 2.5 he discovered he can also run (not 3 spins to a sack) out of problems. And not only that, designed run with the ball - seen a few of those.
We should have won the last game. For several reasons. CI is back. He's already talking about fixing communication on the Dline and backs. And the laundry fest. Jesus.
Last game is when the offense carries you and the defense lets ya down. I see this getting better. Will Geno last at this level? I sure hope so. He's put in the work. You can see it. And FWIW - I don't mind the offense carrying the team for a few games. Saw the defense do it for a decade.
Further - I have been predicting .500 ball this year. From the start. I'm optimistic and hopeful that we're gonna get to the playoffs and not be one and done. That does NOT mean that I consider him a .500 quarterback. Will I eat crow if he tanks by week 10? Absolutely. But I'm fairly confident that won't happen.
Geno for Prez! Ha! Suck it - I'm closing every post this year until he tanks with that. Not that he's gonna tank
