It’s become a normal occurance in the NFL, happening with about the same frequency as a leap year. Once a new player gets a gander at the insanely in-depth offensive playbook of “mad genius” Mike Martz, they suddenly think they’re playing Madden on beginner mode and start talking about how they’ll take the league by storm this year. This year’s a bit different however, seeing as the player who’s drinking the Kool-Aid has already drunk it once before: The ancient Isaac Bruce.
In an interview with the SACRAMENTO BEE, Bruce, signed by the 49ers almost exclusively for his previous knowledge of the epic Martz playbook, says he expects the team to score 56 points a game. Fifty. Six. Points. A. Game.
