Hopefully a week of talking about accountability and discipline along with a renewed focus of punctuality to meetings and tackling fundamentals in practice pays off against Cleveland.
Tomlin took the brunt of the heat this week from the criticism that the team isn’t taking things seriously enough to play up to their potential. It’s certainly debatable the degree to which blame should be placed on the head coach to this point but as far as I’m concerned it is on the players from her on out.
How they respond against Cleveland will determine how the rest of the season plays out.
The next step would be narrowing it down to 15 finalists before the selection committee reveals the names of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2017 on the eve of Super Bowl LI. How far do you think Ward will make it?
Taking his spot on the roster is running back Daryl Richardson. He’s activated from the practice squad. Karlos Williams, who was picked up to the practice squad last month, still hasn’t been activated.
