Terrible clock management by Fox shines again...

His complete ineptitude of managing the clock astouds me. Burning 2 timeouts on the first drive of the game and then giving the Saints a chance to score before halftime instead of running to burn their timeouts. It's amazing to me how an NFL coach can be this stupid.

Fox didn't burn the timeouts.......personally I don't believe Davidson was getting the plays in fast enough.......thus putting JC in a hole.

Clausen called the 1st time out because the call wasn't coming in over his helmet speaker. They later fixed the audio.

Smitty called the 2nd because the play clock was running out.

This was all talked about by the announcers. Are any of you paying attention to the game???

IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COACHES.

While we're at it, we may as well blame Fox for global warming too,

The last two minutes is the explanation of our season up to this point.

Every call goes through Fox and its his responsibility to get the call out with plenty of time left.

And once again at the end of the game, poor calling with little time on the clock. Why call a cutback with Williams with the game on the line and no timeouts? We only needed 2 yards to get into field goal range. Why not just call run plays up the middle instead of taking forever to get a pass call out and then wasting more time when the QB has to point out the defensive blitzers?

Wasting that challenge was inexcusable though, that I will not overlook.

The playcalling in the last drive of the game was fuging atrocious, and whoever was the one calling the plays should be shot.

Im not positive, but I believe the cutback was Williams's call.

The challenge was close and it was a big part in the game. I can't see why it would be inexcusable.

It also gave the defense more time to get their breath because they'd be right back on the field.

Where the hell do you get your information from??? This is so unbelievably wrong, I'm at a loss for words. :smash:
