Coach Talk
The Dogs of War
Nice job assembling a starting crew that won by more than 34 points this past week. We took care of business and did what had to be done. Let's keep this momentum going as we roll into our Week 2 matchup.
Hard Targets
Welp, we can't really whine about a shortage of opportunities this week, can we? Our pass-catching corps (four WR, one TE) were targeted a grand total of 43 times in Week 1. With just 23 total catches, that group may be showing signs of chemistry issues.
