No More Camouflage
This “hide the QB” business is starting to look lame to me. Here are the possibilities:
-Coach Kiffin is actually still undecided despite reports that a decision has been made (a scary thought)
-or Coach Kiffin feels some unorthodox (and questionable) impulse to attempt to psyche out the Detroit Lions (whom I doubt are very psyched out by all of this).
There’s something wrong with psychological warfare being attempted in advance of a matchup between a 2-14 team and 3-13 team. That's like inviting hamsters to a lecture on Russian literature.
As for the notion that it’s simply a matter of Kiffin messing with the media: The media should be the least of Kiffin’s worries at this point, the absolute last thing this team should be concerned with on the eve of a new season in the wake of a 2-14 season. We should be worried about things like not standing still and staring at the ball after a fumble, and not scratching our heads over the concept of a no-huddle offense, and not impersonating saloon doors on the offensive line.
So give Culpepper the ball, announce it to the world, and let’s go skin some cats!
