Yep, good synopsis... each of which were caused by unforeseeable events

that broadsided the RAMS & MB.

Had Will Friend not received the offer to get back to the SEC w/ Pruitt @ UT, our OL woulda been easily on-same-page from Spring thru 2-Days. Instead our O had to deal w/ breaking in a brand new QB to the Bobo O + absorb a new Zone Blocking Scheme & Calls. Nobody could forsee Pruitt taking HC job at UT & offering Friend a great OL gig... but it happened.

Same goes for CH's injury just prior to Spring. Also hampered our OL as well as QB & total O execution.

Same goes for MB's peripheral neuropathy. Hampered virtually every aspect of the team -- no where more obvious than on our not-so Spec. Teams. Which did begin to improve about mid-season.

And nobody could foresee our OL finally beginning to gel, then incur 1 about 3 serious injuries (Bjorklund, Taylor, Meeks) during a 3 game mid-year stretch. NExt man up, except the next man was still trying figure out what he's supposed to do.

The 1 foreseeable event was the wholesale replacement of D Staff, which included a switch to the 4/3. As you and others know, this was a necessity for D Recruiting as well as schematic/attitude issues (to move from more Passive to a more Aggressive D style)
