Ugly, Maybe. But It Works

On Ted Thompson's formula:

"I think this really to me showed all of Ted's work over the last two or three years," team president Mark Murphy said. "You look at the depth of the roster, the players he's been able to identify. We have starting players playing key roles for us who were undrafted free agents this year. It's a tribute to Ted and his staff that he's able to find these players."

Well. Everybody wants superstars at every position. Perhaps Ted's formula has worked better than anyone might imagine.

And by the way: next year in Jerusalem, too?? Remember, there are a LOT of damn good players sitting on the sidelines this year.

For once, just once, I'd like to see a coach that plays the entire game to WIN, rather than the 1st half to win and the second half not to lose.

His strategy is right, it's his methods I question. (Lie to veteran Al Harris when the intention is to cut him at the last possible moment).

I'm with Billiam. I think McCarthy is going to get WAY too much credit this year. His lack of aggression, inability to challenge a call, and "playing not to lose" strategy will bite us in the ass in Dallas.

Why does it always seem like we only win games after the final possession?
