Default Re: Why did we go 1-5 down the stretch? many reason's why......

1. Execution. Can't score. Can't cause turnovers. Drop ball after ball. Etc.
I'm tired of "field goals". How frustrating is it when you watch NE, GB, Seattle, even Indy, and a whole host of other teams score TD after TD after TD - yet we completely freeze in the red zone.

2. Field position battle. We're a constant loser here. How many times during that stretch of games did we punt from inside our own 10?? Yeah - too many times to count.

3. No pressure on opposing QB's. Equally frustrating in the last 3 weeks (and farther back too) to watch Rivers, Romo, and now Dalton have ALL day and then some to just stand back there, think, and throw. Opposing QB's can snap the ball, eat a lunch, call home and check up on their girlfriends or wives, then decide where to throw the ball. Its ridiculous. What happened to the pass rush?

4. Lackluster attitude. Hey, where's Greg Lloyd or Joey Porter when you need them? What do you think they would have done on the sidelines in the last few weeks?
The guys look "half-dead" out there, no fire, little passion. In fact, someone pointed out last week at the Dallas game that during a quarter change-over, the Cowboys were hustling and running down to their end, while our guys were walking real slow, laughing with each other, etc Nice.
The team needs a LEADER OF MEN. A Ray Lewis, a Greg Lloyd, something. I'd like to see them draft a leader, a man's man, somewhere in the draft next year. There are rookies in this league on other teams who are "leading" better than our veteran's.

And poor coaching decisions, and poor special teams play, and stupid penalties, and on, and on, and on, and on. Many reasons why.
Tomlin has a HUGE job this offseason to try and right the ship.
