Story of the season, mostly

However, zero TD against Browns is pretty bad.

Nobody that wore a uniform or carried a clipboard gets a pass on that one.

That's the one game I will agree the O and Arians failed. I'm glad, however, to see that you realize that our D has been the major problem with this team this season - particularly in the 4Q. :shake02:

Would have like to see us run the ball on that last third down. Even if it doesn't convert it takes another 45 seconds or so off of the clock. I really really hope the D can hold just one more time in this game.

That was not good. A penalty cost them 4 points on the previous drive, and they had to settle for 3 there. 27 points, though, is enough to win. Can the D finally hold up it's end of the bargain?

Preacher
12-20-2009, 07:05 PM
Was Ben even trying?

Oh come on.

No, Ben decided he wanted to go fishing in January.


:rolleyes:


YES HE WAS TRYING. He through the ball AWAY like everyone WANTS HIM TOO.


Oh but wait, NOW we want him to hold on to it a bit longer and make that play right?

Still a lot of time, so when they (probably) do surrender the go-ahead TD to GB, we should have some time on the clock.

Does our coaching staff ever play situation football anymore?

Fact: The Coaching staff does not play anything. Gonna put this on them? Besides, the "situatuion" is that we needed a score. Penalties prevented that. Not the sideline.

ok. we kick a squib or our ST gives up a ST return. GB gets great field position. GB grinds 3 minutes off the clock to get them into fg range.

we get the ball back with about 15 seconds.

God i hope im wrong

X-Terminator
12-20-2009, 07:21 PM
Again, penalties cost them big plays...first a hold on Holmes, then Essex negates a first down with a hold. End up with 3 points again.

Can someone...ANYONE...on the D finally step up and make a play here? Your offense got you 30!

No one would be saying that if that play had worked. He is in a tough position here. The D had its usual 4Q meltdown and he was trying a desperation move here. There's still plenty of time even if they get a FG.

Glace
12-20-2009, 07:26 PM
And BINGO was his name-0.

With the lead....ANY DAY....you still kick it deep and make them drive the field rather than take a chance with an onside kick.....Onside kicks are reserved for desperation situations when you're LOSING....we have the freaking lead!

Um......you guys in the braintrust DO realize that we are in DO OR DIE, right? Like desperation time?

It was a fine call...if it fails we hold them to 0-3-7, and only one of those scenarios has us out of the game.

It wasn't a great call because it didn't work. But it WOULD have been had it worked. And ultimately it really doesn't matter, since we are NOT a playoff caliber team...
