Lost in the commotion is the big picture:
We have PFM being PFM.
... WITH a defense having his back.
oh, and decent special teams as well.
The O still needs some work, particularly in the run game (sadly, may be in trouble there) and chemistry between PFM and the receiving corp, but we're cranking out 30ppg, as a team.
I was expecting this year to be a waste of time with PFM being PFM-lite and the typical abysmal defense we've come to expect over the last 7 years. So far, that expectation is getting blown away.
