it's always about execution, turnovers and penalties. period.
this year, last year, all our losses, we had more turnovers and costly penalties.
people wanted us to blow the lions out.. shame we had 2 turnovers in the red zone. I know people yesterday were mad about the bob schnelcker "give up" draw play on third down that ame up short 2 yards.. we settled for a field goal.
people last year moaned about our lack of a hurry up offense or 5 WR set etc. our clock management. they said then and say now how sucky CHILLY is and back it up with a few examples. i have agreed with 95% of chilly's clock decisions, red flag challenges, onside kicks etc. i never get mad when a play doesnt work, because A i dont know who called it, if it was an audible... and usually it doesnt work because of a missed block, dropped pass, bad throw etc. I am also not allergic to punting like a lot of the under 30 yr old crowd seems to be and i hate fantasy football and betting on lines so i dont have dumb alternate agendas ruining my game. all i care about is winning and there is nothing wrong with punting!
so i want everyone's take on yesterdays goings on, NOT chilldress and co but the coaching decisions in jacksonville and new england!!
go for it on 4th and 2 on your own 28 with no TOs? why didnt he have time outs? i've never sen chilly put himself in a situaiton like that! last year even though we got into fg range and converted every time we had to in first and 2nd half endings people still bitched! (i say it's ballsy what NE did..why not... but if it was CHILLDRESS and not Bellichick people would be soooooo mad)
tell your RB to take a knee on the one, then run more plays, drain the clock and kick a fg instead of taking the TD and being up 6 with a minute left? (i disagree)
OKOK how about chilly goes for it on fourth and 1. we all wanted too. but he gives it to dugan instead of AP. he didnt get the first. i bet all the chilly haters got mad at that no? why not give it to AP etc? well i will let someone else explain why a quick hitting FB play might work better, or even a QB sneak.. and how the LBs are all aiming for AP on the play. our center just got blown up, he Fd up!
in other news i always bitched "why dont we ever lateral or pitch the ball" hahaha way to go AP now we never will again! =/ they do in rugby 75 times a game and never drop it.. i wish we could be more flexible in that regard.. run options, pitch outs.. etc
