Of course Jimmy's teams had special teams miscues. But that's not why we lost yesterday. We get that punt off, and we lose by one touchdown fewer...
I am not trying to run down Jimmy or prop up Garrett, but there's an enormous difference between that roster and this, and guys like Irvin and Smith and all along the lines were consummate professionals and ridiculously talented, which I think accounts for alot of what we see on the field as "preparation".
That said, this team almost never looks ready to play with extra time off.
