My hope for the 1st half of the season
Everyone knows we have a little bit of a rough schedule to start the season, and everyone is predicting our demise, we start 1-4, Tebow will be named the starter, etc. However we may not see that demise as planned by ESPN, and other media jerkoffs, and here's why:
No tape on Austin Howard: Remember when Hunter played well down the stretch when he had to come in for Woody in the 2010 playoffs? Part of it was because there was limited tape on him to game plan for his weaknesses. Maybe Austin Howard can benefit from this as well. That coupled with giving him TE and chip block help, our OL may do just fine.
No tape on the Tebow Package: Now before we all go ahead and say "but everyone knows what the wildcat is" and blah blah blah, I think Sporano has tricks up his sleeve for this wildcat 2.0. I think we will see Sanchez and Tebow on the field at the same time and being a part of the play (in the Brad Smith wildcat, Sanchez was just dead weight on the field), and I also think Tebow will be lined up in different spots. That explains why Sanchez has hinted him and Tebow will be on the field at the same time, his confidence that "everything will be fine", and The whole org taking the NE approach and being so tightlipped about it. If Sporano can get creative, Teams will be baffled and there will be little tape to game plan for whatever this wildcat 2.0 looks like.
There's my hope for the 1st half of the season. If teams catch on in the 2nd half, our schedule lightens up a ton, and we can probably beat those teams with our D alone :yes:
