How we have improved from last year

I have been pondering as to our success this year, and how we've managed to improve on last year. Here are a few things I noted, feel free to discuss/disagree/commend me on any of them.

 

#1. Mike Tomlin. I think MT has improved fast and this year he seems to have a better grasp on this team. Very impressed with him so far. Another thing I think helps is he has stopped smoking weed before each game, and he seems more "into" the game.


I noticed a lot last year he had red eyes like you wouldnt believe, and he just seemed mellow. Not really emotional or energetic. Kinda spaced out sometimes. This year though, totally opposite. Clear eyes like a bottle of Visine went down em, and fire and energy and commitment. Good stuff.

 

#2. Playing well against loser teams. Last year we slept on a few teams. Its not a lie, we did. We lost games we had no business losing. This year not so much. We've pummeled the lowly teams and put them away. Very good focus, and again this comes back to MT and how he gets people geared up.

 

#3. DEPTH. We are deeper than the hole Osama Bin Laden is hiding in. We've managed to perform despite losses at pretty much EVERY position. This shows good coaching, and good FO decisions. Very helpful.  Whereas last year we got killed when a few people went down.

 

Those are just a few things that go beyond stats. Obviously we know we have more sacks and such but I like to look behind the scenes
