Matt LaFleur and his staff deserve a standing ovation for having this team ready for Week-1 in all phases. Were they perfect? No, but they didn’t need to be perfect to demonstrate some of the potential this talented roster has. 

LaFleur had Love and that offense looking sharp, even without one of their biggest weapons – Christian Watson. 

Bisaccia had his rookie kicker and punter looking like seasoned vets. The return games showed promise, and the coverage units were solid. Bisaccia has taken what was a historically bad special teams unit two seasons ago, and turned it into what now looks like a strength of this team. 

Joe Barry seems to have done the impossible, and evolved into an effective DC. Not only did the scheme look effective against the Bears, the players looked absolutely fired up and dialed in. There was a lot to be excited about from this defense. Now… can they show that consistently throughout the season? 

Overall, credit to Matt LaFleur for having his staff aligned, and having this team prepared to win by 18 points over the Bears in Chicago. The MLF for COTY campaign has officially begun!
