And, as far as the types of passes, it doesn't really fuckin matter when the WRs aren't dependable. AB seemed really humble after that loss - good. It is time for him to emerge as a leader. RIGHT NOW. There is no time left.
I agree. Brown looked every bit a buffoon as Walllace has looked many times this year.
If anyone can learn from such a wake-up call, it's Brown. He probably needed it.

We absolutely need someone to start taking the pressure off Ben, and becoming his go to guy. Miller has what it takes to lead by example. We need a vocal leader from the WRs who WANT the ball, and WANT to carry this team. Remember how verbal Holmes was during the XLIII run? Yea - we need someone to step up starting right now. AB has what it takes.

We struggle to pick up blitzes... our WR's are not getting it done..and our O-line is struggling to create holes.

Why is this? I'm not positive but I suspect it's because of the injuries ....at least for the O-line and QB play. As for the WR's... probably goes back to the O-line not giving them time to get open.

What is bothersome is how we've handled the injuries. The coaching staff really hasn't adjusted much... now teams have figured out how to defend us...which has just made the problems worse.

I thought moving Pouncey to guard and Legursky to center against the Ravens after Colon went down (again) was a damn good adjustment.

You can only do so much when you lose key starterS (plural) seemingly every single week. The "next man up" stuff only goes so far.

Look at the Teams stats on ESPN.com and you have the answer. Haley hasn't brought much ........... yet. I have strong reservations on the guy. We'll see where we stand at the end of the season but I'm not impressed by the Offense so far. I know we had injuries in the OL but what team doesn't?

Gee, maybe the passing game failures are due to injuries to WR,s too. We had to sign Plax off the street, bring up one from the practice squad, with a second and third string qb and a third string RT, our all pro center playing guard. Maybe this has something with our off production. And BTW, we do throw long to Wallace, results, dropped pass, dropped pass, pathetic attempt to catch leading to an int, etc. why keep throwing to him when he puts at best little effort to catch it, then complains abouts how many targets hes getting.

we need a real NFL caliber running back. whatever we have back there, is below average and other teams know it. not having a threat out of the backfield makes you 1-dimensional, and that doesnt work in the NFL

Yea, I hear you on the injuries at WR - but now there isn't any excuses, except for, yet again INJURIES on the o-line. They have very little time to let a play develop - however, teams like NE live for getting the ball out to the WRs extremely fast. Brady has protection though. Big difference. When you are having to step up into the middle or always running out of the pocket, that affects the quick strike as well.

hell ben didn't even have enough protection to get a WR screen off, the amount of protection that ben got last saturday was just horrible. o-line shit the bed. when that happens, you won't get anything done on offense, i don't care if you got joe montana back there

Dead last in the AFC in number of 1st downs, far behind the others, is not only due to injuries.
