I'm looking forward to how they adjust to criticism. I can tell you that yesterday cut way way way back on the sidelines interviews. I actually like them a lot. The defenders field goal kicker for instance. He missed a short field goal, got interviewed about it and looked sad, then hits a monster to end the half and gets interviewed again.The good, the bad and the ugly in week one.
10 minute halfs
one foot in bounds
the ball spotter
the 25 second clock
way too much talk about the NFL
trying to talk to players, it's awkward and we get nothing out of it.
listening to the plays being called, yep....boring.
Player of week one.....QB P.J.Walker
I think they just need to figure out when is best, and who to leave alone.
As far as the play calling, I like it when it gets broken down a bit. I actually started to follow along with how the coach was looking at the game at some points. I do agree that just hearing the play calls and no explanation whatsoever does nothing for me.
The officiating crews do pretty damn well, though they've gotta get a little more efficient. I love that I can hear them talk about the call, but they have to fix the play clock a lot because they aren't efficient yet. Ball spotter is a brilliant simple idea.
PJ Walker had the best performance. Not even gone try to lie. He looked like Russell Wilson out there. HOWEVER!!.. My boy Cardale Jones looked really really good and Mcgloin looks comfortable running his offense.
The tackling want NFL level of course, but they looked much better than I thought they would. All in all, I'm in for week two. I think there's a couple of good matchups that should be really fun to watch. I also think you're going to see a lot more polish now that there's film to watch.
Looking forward to them having a bunch of CFL guys next year too. Will be cool to see some new names
