As always, World War 1 is instructive.
As in all wars, weapons technology had outpaced tactics. Thus, the spectre of wave after wave of men rushing towards machine guns and being cut to pieces.
The leadership, as always, had not adjusted their tactics to the new technology, and young men paid the price.
There was tactical planning that went along the lines of, “If we throw enough men at it, eventually we’ll have bodies all the way to the gun and we’ll capture it.”
The war was so horrendous that a great power, France, essentially lost their will to wage war. They were broken by it.
The Brown family is doing what the military leaders in World War 1 did. Just using the same tactics, getting killed season after season, running guys out there again and again, seemingly incapable of adopting a new operating strategy that might yield better results.
Sorry Joe Burrow, you have to climb out of that trench and run towards that machine gun!
Where does that leave us fans? Who are we in all this? All I can say is, Viva Le France!
