IMO the play calling is bad because we're limited as to what we can actually do. We essentially have only 2 viable WRs, neither of whom can really stretch the field. We also only have a banged up Ivory and a slightly-better-than JAG in Powell for the running game.
I guess my point is that the players ARE being compensated. They get a free degree. You could argue whether the compensation is high enough or not, but it's not like these kids are getting completely screwed over.
Dakota Dozier. But only because I want him to play so well that he earns the nickname "Double D" so I can hear announcers say things like, "Boy, Double D sure is a handful to handle" and other witticisms.
For me, the wild card is Coples. It's pretty obvious by now that his best position is DE. So does Bowles see Coples as an every down player, or just a rotational guy? If he's an every down DE, does that mean we primarily run a 4-3, and if so, who gets kicked inside to make room for him?
