Mike Tice, Miracle Worker

Offensive lines take time to develop. Yep. You could have Mike Tice in there, working as hard as he can to develop these under-performing linemen... and not see any results this year, maybe not next year either. Why? Because it's a multi-year process of developing an offensive line, and I'm sure many of us have a fair understanding on how bad the line is, and how apparently short on talent it is as well.

I think the expectations on Tice and Martz are a bit high at this moment, with a new, young, completely inexperienced offensive line and a new system, the fact we're 4-2 is absolutely impressive. If we can make it to 8-8, I'd still be impressed, but... too often, I think the overreaction that encourages us to do something drastically different if we're not moving quick enough, or in the 'right direction... NOW'.

This is what I call impatience, that many fanbases and many team leadership groups, seem to willingly embrace these days. We, for the most part, know where are problem lies, and we shouldn't throw the baby out with the bathwater. 

Patience, my fellow fans, patience. Things will pull together with good coaching and young talent, maybe not this year, and maybe not as well as we'd want by the end of the year... But give them a bit more time than 6 weeks to turn Angelo's misgivings into gold.
