A lot of unhappiness in the PBP thread, usual scapegoats listed. My 2 cents: • Rainy, sloppy conditions are going to favor route 1 teams, and hack teams, and will work against possession and finesse teams. That said, we seemed to do well holding possession for the beginning and end of the game, which suggests that we took our foot off the pedal for the middle third, when we lost the game, or at least failed to match Philly's energy. • We missed Cisse. a lot. Caldwell and Dorman were fine in their own way, but neither can do what Cisse did against Fire. • I thought their work rate was fine, but I don't think Bengtson or Toja are on their best game when it's 37° and raining. • My biggest complaint is that we continue to do poorly on set plays, both on offense and defense. The corner on which we lost the game was a complete c.........k, where every Rev's facial expression afterward said "Not my mark!" This was a regular feature of last year's Rev team, and must change ASAP. I'm not going to condemn Heaps based on that one play, but if this keeps happening, it's on him. • [broken record] The team relies on Bengtson too much. Sene ≠ Bengtson. We need a new DP scoring threat. [/broken record] • Players will play their way on to or off the starting 11 and bench in the first 4-5 games. If Tierney or anyone else gets on the field in March or April, and sinks instead or swimming, that's OK. If it's May or June, it's no longer acceptable. You will say last year should have been enough. I'm OK with everyone competing for a spot. I would expect Duckett first off the bench next game.
