Dilfer off to a bad start

The biggest disappointment in the opener was the play of Trent Dilfer. He got off to a decent start in the first have, but he made some terrible throws in the second half. I thought our offensive coordinator did a good job calling plays, and often there were open receivers downfield. Dilfer just missed too many receivers.

As usual, Dilfer showed that he’s a man of character as he took the blame after the game. That’s certainly a refreshing change. He also deserves more time, much more time, to find his rhythm with the rest of the offense. I’m sure that Crennel will show patience here and not rush in Charlie Frye.

That said, Dilfer needs to play better. Let’s hope he starts next week against a weak Green Bay team.
