You could have yanked a 10 year old out of the stands and had better game/clock management.
Gotta disagree. This loss was all on the players. Plays were there and open, execution was bad. Dropped balls, missed throws, dropped interceptions, missed sacks, just not finishing drives and plays. We out gained them 146 to 49 on the ground and found a way to lose. That is unheard of. Pass game they had 134 yards until the last 7 minutes. And as far as the timeouts we had to use them do to the players mistakes on not having enough or too many people in the huddles or on the field.

We gave up on the run game which is on the coaching staff...I think we had 96 yards on the ground in the first half, and BJGE touches it only 5 times for the rest of the game.

Better to take a 5 yard penalty than to lose all three timeouts and being bled dry. Besides, players out of position is a direct reflection of the coaching staff.

Dumb play calls in the 4th quarter...when we should have sealed the deal we crapped the bed.

No matter how hard you try, you can't pin this blame on Marvin.

Who called those timeouts?

Who took the ball out of BJGE's hands?

Sure, it wasn't Marvin alone, but he certainly had a hand in this community loss.

Dropped passes in this game were beyond ridiculous.

Gruden. Is that a trick question?

drunk Re: could we blame this loss on the flu?

Oh hell why not.

I think their is a 30% percent chance the game was fixed for a story..







C'mon, the thought has ran through all of your heads.

No, but we could blame ourselves for not finishing the cowgirls off. Put them away !!!

I just think this is true WCO and yet it's part of a gameplan that clearly gets overlooked.

Instead we ignore BJGE when he's getting it done and go away from what's working. Let the man get his carries and throw to him more as well. Ever heard of a frickin screen pass when the D is putting on pressure?
This is the most pizz poor excuse of a west coast offense, you will ever see.

Brian Billick said this isn't a west coast offense. He said true west coast offenses don't exist anymore. It may have a couple elements of it, but it's mostly a different animal.
