Glad they gave the offense all that rest in the pre season because it is clear they didn't need the work
On the up-side of things, there are supposed to be some pretty good quarterback options in next year's draft. Sure, they'll be high first round picks, but we'll be picking up there anyway.
Stafford wont make the defense better
Gonna be a long season. So many players looked like shit. This isn't the kind of stuff you just bounce back from the next week.
Cassel should definitely be starting but Simpson did enough for Ponder to for sure not lose his job..not that it's probably in danger regardless.
I think we have larger problems again, even with the game calling from Musgrave.
Ponder can be said to be terrible, which he was, but our O line still needs to improve...and where the hell is the receiving core outside of SImpson? Rudolph must have taken a break today because Ponder looked lost.
You can't put the defense on the field for 20+ minutes in the first half and expect them to keep up with Reggie Bush in the second. Especially in week 1.
Ponder was awful for most of the game. That was the problem. The offensive line wasn't very good either. But Ponder just looks lost in the pocket.
