As I sat here in this peaceful calm between now and the draft. I had a thought come to me concerning the overall state of our team.
I would have to admit, I've been worried the past couple of months. Worried that we had altered ourself criticaly in hidden ways concerning coaches and key players. Believe it or not I think even something as inobscure as having Ray Rhodes gone will have an unseen effect.
But outside of Rhodes, That is basically the only drastic change thats happened on the defensive side of the Ball. ( No insult intended to Darby, Bently or Koutivides.)
In light of the recent team chemstry shown amongst the members of our D. I'd say that type of cohesion bodes well for us. Combined with the fact we showed signs of greatnesss last season on that side of the ball...So in this thought I suddenly had an impulsion that we are on the brink of being an elite defense.
Now, suddenly, I'm cool and colected about our status going into next season. Yeah just like that. I'm confident we'll do well no matter really whats going on on the offense.
I realize of course this is a pretty premature sense of confidense. But I can't help that the Hawks and me have always been a pretty instinctual relationship. ( I NOTE here that my instincts have been wrong before.) But theres nothing i can do now except, accept the fact we're going to do well next season..
