Why have coaches at all?

Last couple of weeks, blaming the coaching would be irresponsible. The last two weeks other then Tomlin's boneheaded decision to kick a 53 yard FG, has been on the players all the way through.

Only real bad coaching move I saw was going for it on 4th instead of kicking the FG. Hell, it's the Raiders! They average 10 points a game! Get the 3.

Other then that:

1. The coaches didn't make Will Gay fall all over the field like he was on ice.
2. The coaches didn't make Ben throw a BAD INT in the red zone.
3. The coaches didn't make Ike Taylor lose his "swagga" and look like a rookie.
4. The coaches didn't make Mundy DROP a sure INT that would have ended the game.
5. The coaches didn't make Mundy take a personal foul penalty on the final drive.

I could go on, but the players are dropping the ball this year. (no pun intended)
Players are missing assignments, dropping balls, fumbling balls, missing tackles, blowing coverages, blowing coverages, throwing Ints, missing blocks, etc.

Another SB slump seems to be upon them.

alls he had to do was execute the play.

i guarantee, putting in dixon in, in that situation woulda been more effective (and probably had a better chance of catching the brilliant raider coaches off guard).

personally, i wouldve simply opted for the field goal.

I didn't hate the call to go for it on 4th down...I just hated that it was a QB sneak, especially since it was about a yard and not just a couple inches. Should have just been a hand off.

Agree with the rest of this (except it was Burnett and not Mundy who dropped the INT), but I do think someone is going to lose their job soon...my money's on the secondary coach.

I hated it because Ben suffered a concussion just 2 weeks ago. Just do something else. It didn't work anyway. Telling Ben to go headfirst into a brick wall is ok, but not using Dixon because he might get hurt is just just plain stupid.

believe it or not...all that goes back to coaching. sure a player is going to screw up occassionally...miss a block, blow an assignment... but when the same mistakes are made repeatedly, then that means players aren't properly prepared and that would be a coaching problem. thats why they practice before games.

yeah, like 8 games in a row.

I can think of a certain ST coach who will be looking for a new team.
