Well, right now i just really don't know what to think of this team. Just when you think Mike O'Shea is for sure going down, he comes up with another big road win and dodges a bullet.
But ... as per usual we have still got to solve this home field leaky walls qucksand problem. But ... if there was a time to do it, it's now!
The news is Collaros will not return in time for Wednesday's game. I actually don't know if that's good or bad and here's why. Yes at full strength Collaros is tough to beat, but he's gonna be rusty his first game back in action, and i think a rusty Collaros may be more beatable than an unpredictable Masoli.
I think therein lies the key: If the bad Masoli shows up again (which after 2 good games he might), we win. If the good Masoli shows up, we could be in trouble.
I'm glad to see Nichols get another shot, but he's gonna have a tougher time to get it done though in that it looks like no Dressler, Adams, or McDuffie will go, and Smith probably won't return till post-bye.
This game I think may be the last crack Mayo has to show he can get it done as a receiver. I love his speed, but he's gonna need to show his hands. Sheppard needs to show he can get open and expect Rory Kohlert and Jace Davis to get most the targets.
But I think the bigger key to the offense will be springing Harris on both the runs and the pass. He was pretty big last game in Hamilton, and he's gonna need to do it again Wednesday.
