A Change Will do you Good

Southside(PR) After a tumultuous start to the season Dave Wannstedt is looking at changes. Undoubtedly, the first thing he would like to do is get rid of the turnovers. "They can expect us to hold onto the football," he said. "That would be the most important thing. We have to protect the ball and not give up any easy scores. As long as we do that, we'll have a chance to beat everybody we play." Other than that key change "The Great Stache" will only make minor tweaks to his pregame routine and to the game itself.
Other changes per Wanny include: A different pregame meal, "I spoke with Foge the other day and we talked a little about the Fish sandwiches." "We'll definitely be eating Buffalo Wings on Saturday. I still don't understand how they come from a Buffalo. I have yet to see wings on them." It's a real head scratcher said Wanndstedt. It sure is Dave! Chase Clowser will get the starting nod at Right tackle, where Joe Thomas struggled mightily. Wannstedt said, Oh I thought Joe did a great job for us last week, but Chase has shown such an affection for devouring Buffalo wings that we just had to put him in the staring lineup against the Bills. Tom Petty, Stevie Nix and Bryan Adams will be blaring from the speakers of Dave's boombox in the locker room. "I am taking my Divo, Journey and Buffalo Springfield cassettes out and giving these new artists a look." You can also expect to see Jonathan Baldwin's, Lucas Nix's and Elijah Field's playing time double. Which means Baldwin will see 4 plays this game as O. Turner drops more passes and you might see Fields and L. Nix get one play each. Other than that, Wanny said no changes will be made to his personal grooming habits, offensive philosophy and play calling and to his thoughts of 4th downs on Buffalo's 35 yard line. "Oh with Bruce Smith out there playing defense you have to play the field position game." Here's hoping that Wannstedt has Sheryl Crow in his cassette collection because more changes can do him good.
