Kuharsky has a piece in this morning's Tennessean: http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060810/SPORTS01/608100411/1027 It basically discusses how the coaches made excuses for McNair and shouldn't go down that road wth Young. Very interesting stuff. Over the years, I've heard sound bytes from coaches which appeared to be excuses for a number of players. Pacman got more than his share last year, for example. There was little negative said about poor tackling and errors made by veterans. I can understand why coaches want to guard the confidence of players and I like an optimistic approach. I just hope the coaches and staff take a more realistic view of what happens on the field behind closed doors.
