Me, either. I also hate that things like "we are still in the hunt for the division" when we know if we play anyone outside of the div we get our butts handed to us!I still cannot fathom how we allowed ourselves to get trucked by the Giants on our home field coming off a bye week. So I’m sure as hell not holding my breath that they’ll prevail over Detroit.
What was the official explanation on that play? I only saw what they showed on the Red Zone channel, which showed his knee bouncing off the ground, then his body goes on top of the other players, and the ball comes out. At least from what I saw, they ignored what happened prior to him losing the football and just saw him on top of players and the ball coming loose. It didn't make sense, so I wasn't sure if they gave any more detailed explanation on the broadcast.I still think we got jobbed on the McLaurin fumble as he had it firmly in his hands with a knee down and they still refused to overturn it.
This is a problem I've seen with this team for a long time. This is where teaching comes into play. What are they teaching these defenders about playing zone? Non one ever seems to be in the right spot on key downs. They all seem to be jumping the wrong routes, leaving their zone, and overall just blowing coverages. Being the defensive coordinator doesn't just mean drawing up a game plan and calling plays. It's also teaching your players how to play. You can't make someone faster or stronger, but you can teach them how to use what they have. I haven't seen a coach that was good at teaching in a long time. I was hopeful for Del Rio and maybe he eventually. But I don't see it right now.And the other question I'd have for JLC is 'how many times are you going to put these DBs in zone on key downs before you realize that they cannot cover effectively?' I'm kind of tired of seeing us give up easy touchdowns because we are in zone and guys apparently don't know who is covering what. Put them in man coverage and take your chances. At least then, we know who blew the coverage or got beat for God's sake.
the kicker should rarely be the reason you lose a game. all of these players out there for 60 minutes getting the ball as close as they can, the kicker should be able to get the ball through the uprights a lot better than that. he has 5 misses so far this year.
he missed a FG 10/18 and we lost by 1
he missed yesterday and we lost by 3
We should bring someone in and at least put pressure on him to get his act together. he is 12 for 17 for the year...that is not good.
