having said that i've always been a staunch advocate of tank nation and this year the tank can be two-fold: 1) draft pick of course and 2) it might actually force the usual suspects out of town. this has all just been going on way too muthafuckin long. how i've always seen it is hey, you know what, this team has basically never been good under my watch, save for a couple years, so why am i in a rush to see them win?
This should be a better team, talent wise on paper it's a better team for sure. The chemistry is off, the offense is all out wack. Casey has lost his touch for sure. If we just stayed around the same defensively this season (12th overall on D) we'd be .500 or better imo. We can't seem to make stops in the 4th quarter, our rotations are still a mess. At the same time i thought we'd be a 38+ win team but i said it depends on staying healthy which we haven't.
