For me I believe there's some merit to that. It certainly wasn't a good feeling watching the play of our team in the opener. After months of anticipation we looked out classed, out coached and out played in all phases. But if we had a patsy in the Bronco's place I wonder how long it would've taken us to get our bearings straight. After all, as ugly as the Carolina loss was there was definite improvement from week one to week two. Two cupcakes within the first three weeks could've spelled an early season of more questions than answers.
Anyway, hindsight and all that. It's a good Q&A from Paschall. McGarity even talks about what the first two weeks were like for him evaluating the team at 0-2. Give it a read.
