Week 1 it wasnt on Del Rio.... Week 2 its on him. Every time we blitzed we created opportunities. We. Need. To. Bring. More. Pressure. That being said Chase Young so far as been underwhelming Year 2
Offensive thoughts.... Whatever Drew Brees is doing right now, we need to hire him as an offensive/QB coach ASAP. Taylor Heinicke is a couple inches taller than Brees but he plays like he's 5'9. He needs to be more confident in his reads. You saw that in the first half with overthrows, and in the second half with overcompensating with underthrows. He needs a short quarterback whisperer!!
I thought Taylor looked nervous in the beginning but settled down and was real good - except for the interception. If I recall right, he was 24 of 34 for 336 yards and 2 TD's to go with the int. I'll take that ever day - especially on Sundays. His QB rating remains over 100, and he's a lot more mobile than... Drew Brees. Brees is a future 1st ballot HOFer, so Taylor will never "measure up" to him. Honestly, I think his reads are generally terrific. He blew it on the int, but it seemed like the DB was tipped off somehow - the way he jumped the play. Sometimes ya gotta tip your hat to the defense.
I'm surprised how mediocre our defense has been so far, but it's early. The game was entertaining from start to finish. No doubt, we got some luck from the Giants' mistakes. We probably should have kept Gano, lol. Remember when Mark Mosely had the record for most consecutive FG's? It's a LOT more now.
