Hmmm, haven’t listened to Yes in a while. they were a fun band back in the day. Saw a great show at the Coliseum Arena in like 1978. Halfway through the show, Rick Wakemen’s keyboard miasma caught on fire, and they had to stop the show for 45 minutes while they put out and reassembled the plethora of keyboards, Moogs, and wires galore. Still a great show.
Speaking of great shows, we are getting closer to the real thing. The Jimmie Ward injury prompted the signing of Tashaun Gipson. And also the reincarnation of Dontae Johnson as he is now getting time at safety. He’s the guy that just doesn’t go away. He’s sometimes in the right place at the right time, but more often than not he’s a penalty or a burn waiting to happen. Hope Gipson catches on fast.
Other than that, the defense looks great. Should be dominant.
The offense is hard to gauge as we haven’t put the real guys on the field yet. I suppose we think we are good enough to treat the Bears game as a tune-up for the offense, as Chicago is pretty much a mess all over the place. We shouldn’t have too much trouble with them running or passing. But then again, anything can happen in the NFL these days. And this is more true now than ever.
Teams fly up and down the good/bad charts faster than shit through a goose, so last year’s turd is this year’s diamond. Shit, we were a dropped pick from the Super Bowl last year, and I don’t think anyone thought we were for real. Including me. The only time I felt comfortable in the playoffs was when we were to face the Rams. The game we fucking lost. Then again, it was still pretty sweet to knock both the Packers and the Cowsills out of the playoffs.
We are better defensively. That is certain.
The O is the Q.
