Since Armas took over, we have not been the same team offensively. Even last year when he took over, we were getting results, but we definitely had a decrease in scoring chances. We weren't playing that well (by our standards) but were still getting results so everyone was fine with it. Armas said he was "tweaking" Jesse's system, partly so that we could play differently in the playoffs if we needed to. This coincided with Kaku's drop off in assists. He was doing more work defensively. But now the results aren't coming, and we are playing even worse. We aren't creating any chances. We aren't forcing turnovers, which is what our style was built on.
Its 7 games into the season now and we have 1 win. Losing games at home to horrible teams. This is unacceptable for us.
Yes, Tyler Adams was a huge piece that we didn't directly replace. Yes, BWP is a year older. Yes, Taxi has been out and we don't have a suitable replacement. Yes, we could use another attacking player. But still...this is a team that set a fucking points record last year. We have 10 of 11 starters back. Last year we went into every single game realistically expecting to win. Now we look like one of the worst teams in the league. For there to be this much of a difference in play, that has to be on the manager.
