I've never liked "sunshine pumpers".
If it's cloudy as all Hell, the "greenies" are voracious, and the forecast sucks, I don't want to hear that the sun may break through any minute and it's not that bad.
Time to get our asses off the beach, back to the hotel for a swim, and out for Early Birds.
If our offensive production is anemic, weekly game-plans flounder and under achieve, our QB needs intensive work on his mechanics, we can't find a back that fills our needs, the O-line is into the 3 deep, and can't open a hole or get any push.........why tell us things look "pretty good".
They don't, and they aren't.
Coach could have said...."We've hit some bumps in the road, but we're working our tails off to smooth out the ride, and get it to cruise control."
Or.... "Our O is not firing on all cylinders, we're in the middle of a tune-up, and we'll get to peak performance as soon as we can."
Something that sounds realistic, offers up hope for continued improvement, and addresses problems with potential remedies.
I have faith we'll get there, and still have confidence in our Coaching staff..... I just don't want the BS slung. Honest appraisals, and objective assessments, is what I'm looking for, and want to hear.
