It's really sad CMR keeps deciding to put entire team at disadvantage each week bc he doesn't think Special Team plays are important! There are 3 aspects that make up a football game...Offense, Defense , & Special Teams. We automatically concede 1 of those every time we step on field which makes the other 2 needing to be lights out & mistake free. In process more pressure is put on others to always execute perfectly to make up for hole they are put in before game even starts! It's the Head Coaches job to make sure decisions or changes are made to put players in best position to succeed & for reasons unknown to me or anyone I have consulted CMR didn't get that memo! I am confused as to why he can't see that it's bad for everyone involved & has to be forced into making these types of changes...either w coaches or philosophies! Take our approach on kick offs for example...if Marshall Morgan can kick 57 yd field goal then I know he has ability to kick ball through the end zone resulting in ball being placed at 25 but that only seems to happen 1 time a game if that. It seems our choice is to use short directional kick off where IMO too many bad things can occur & in best case scenario the opposing team usually ends up close to 20 yd line. A 5 or even 10 yd difference isn't worth taking a chance on what could & often times seems to happen. Opposition ends up past 25 yd line & in worst case scores TD! Why is it so hard for our COACH to comprehend or realize that best choice is to boom it through end zone & have D be put in best available place w/o possibility of giving other team points, momentum, or better field position! Seems like he would rather gamble than dictate how/where opponent is to start drive! It's his inability to make basic decisions or change approach when it's obvious that our team would benefit. Makes me question if it's ignorance or arrogance that has put blinders on him! Ain't that hard to figure out which approach is better for our team & makes me question any & every decision/approach in philosophy he thinks is right for Dawgs! Can't play scared or w doubt that right call is being made along the way bc it's too late then & you're giving another advantage to opponent that they didn't even earn! Coaching is about creating favorable matchups for your team not the one you are going into battle against but seems like opposite approach is made no matter who we play or if it puts us at disadvantage in process! This is small piece of puzzle that makes up the problems we need to correct to start giving us the advantage & not them! If something doesn't change soon then our confidence & swagger will disappear...making it that much more difficult to turn around our chances at any kind of Title or Championship in near future. There should be visible improvement each week in order to begin the process of becoming better players, coaches, & team as a whole!
