First off hats off to the Indians. Nothing other than a good old butt whoopin' tonight. Qb looked good and the running game even better. As for my Tigers, we still have a good bit of work to do. Defense was nonexistent. We only had one stop and the one int tonight. Not much positive on that side of the ball tonight. Defense definitely would have been helped by McCain but nowhere near enough. Newton went down to an injury tonight hopefully won't be out too long. As far as the offensive side of the ball Tyler looked good as did Adonis the little bit he played on that side of the ball. The much talked about receiving group of the Tigers was down to just Barnes(of the much talked about trio) which left Jones with one proven option. We did throw the ball at least a couple more than 5 times, a couple interference calls. But we definitely need to put a little more variety in the passing game. And I feel some of that will come with time. I still have a sour taste in my mouth by the two failures on 4th down in the first half. Not sure what the plan was on those but sure left the defensive in a bad spot. Especially the one late in the half. At that point the game was not out of hand but giving the Indians a short field and time to score with them getting the ball first in the second half wasn't a good thing.
Still I wasn't one expecting to go into the reservation and come out with a win. Did I think it was possible....sure but I really don't expect the Tigers to really start playing up to their potential at least until they have 3 or 4 games under their belts. Lots of learning to do for both the players and these new coaches. Hopefully the Tigers will get the injured layers back healthy and get rolling faster than I think. One thing about it ,. This Tiger fan won't quit believing in them!!!!
