Default What is he smoking???

Talking about the running game:

"I thought it was spotty at times, but I thought when we had a chance we were efficient," guard Willie Colon said.

running game is terrible....hasn't looked good in any of the games. I have no idea what he's thinking unless he's trying to justify his own line play. No idea.

Thought this post was about Tomlin going for it on 4th & 1 on there on like 29 yard line. I actually thought Ben was going to try and get the Raiders to jump off-side for a first down. Then call timeout if they did not fall for it. But to actually go for it, was plain DUMB call!!!!!!! and lucky they got ther first down. But I was not pleased with this call at all!!

It was a very Ballsy call, but as Tomlin said, if we couldn't manage to pick up a yard in that situation, we didn't deserve the chance to win.

If they wouldn't of got the first down I have a feeling we'd have a new sticky Fire Tomlin.

Explain why this was a bad call? We had a defense that could not stop anything. If we do not get it, they score faster so we would at least have a chance to tie it up with Ben. If we punt it, they just drive on us while killing the clock leaving us with no chance to come back. It was a great call.

BINGO!!!!! Tomlin knows his d can't stop anyone. I was really surprised he went for it; but it does show one thing. He has no faith in his d. Crap; I thought he was going to go for it on 4th and 9. probably should have that was our only chance to win.

Yeah, that was a straight up message to the D...we don't trust you to stop them driving down the field.

I liked the call, and still would have approved of it if they didn't get the first down. I've never wanted them to run that kind of play in my life before yesterday...that's how bad the D was sucking.

it was a good call, if we don't make it, the short field would have made it impossible the milk the clock, and I would have liked our chances better being down with ben running the 2 minute drill
