Its all on Cowher LOL. The secondary is horrible the only big play they made was because of a boneheaded move by Manning underthrowing his WR. James was running at will on your D as well. Parker isnt as good as everyone hyped him up to be at the start of the season(although I think hes alright he just isnt that good yet but hell be alot better next year). The O-Line is horrible now you know why Maddox took as many sacks as he did.

Coaches calling the plays are just completely dumbfounding... sneak play on 4th down, onside kick, not attackin the middle of the field.. I just cant figure it out to save my life.

If you manage to figure it out, let us know. All I can say is un******believable.

This just has me so freekin pissed off I cant even think straight. I just get so sick and tired of being out coached week in and week out when u play tough teams.

Beating the browns, the titans, the texans, the ratbirds, and even the bengals because they are in our division and we know them..doesnt take much game planning because we are more physical than those teams and we can force our will on offense by running the ball, playing great defense and using play action and a smart passing game to win. And in the bengals and ratbirds games..it doesnt matter who game plans for what..its just an all out war.

Its just so dis heartening to see us get continually out coached when we have the players that can match up w/ anyone.

A healthy New England team would have ***** slapped the Colts tonight. Until we learn to rip the heart out of the best teams we ain't going to be the best.
I seriously doubt that. Even wo the injuries their secondary is weak at best.

You doubt what? The Patriots have proven the last two years what a championship team does against opponents like the Colts. This year they're decimated with injuries. But Belicheck clearly knows how to coach and Cowher doesn't. You have to confuse Manning and throw crap at him he doesn't expect. They were doing just that until Einstein decided to try an onside kick, and Ben made that bonehead throw at the end of the first half instead of running the ball for a first down.

Exactly!!!!

Now that Staley is healthy (for how long who knows), Staley #1, Bettis #2, Parker 3rd downs. I think Cowher is moving toward that setup, and you might see it next week. Early on, they didn't think that Parker could pick up the blitz, but I thought that he did it better than most of the o-line last night when they started using Parker on third downs.

Here we go.

Everyone is down on the playcalling, and I grant you that the onside kick, and the 4th down quarterback draw were poor choices. But what was wrong with the general gameplan? What was wrong with the playcalling? Honestly, I'm completely open to other opinions and would like to hear some specifics.

To me, it seemed reasonable to try to run the ball and pass short to lengthen our time of posession and get some nice long drives going. I found fault in the execution of the plays and the bonehead penalties that kept killing us.

Here we go.
