We Didn't Have Any FG Attempts

Isn't that crazy

Imagine just getting atleast 2 all the way up to that last drive. We could have won without having to score

I'm still baffled that we didn't attempt a 52 yard FG and instead opted for a punt with a net of 15 yards....

i dunno why you bring in mare if you don't trust him enough to even try a 52 yarder.

Unless we talking a blowout I cant even think of a game where a team doesn't have atleast 1

We was in their territory multiple times

Was it the possession where Cam was tackled for a loss on third down that pushed us out of range, supposedly?

I said in chat I thought it was weird that the score was 21 instead of 9

That is funny but for real, we came to a crashing halt at their 40 yard line several times, it could have been a blow out in our favor.

Too many 0 or negative yards on 1st down with those runs right up the middle.

Needed to use screens and slants more vs that style of defense.

I can't believe that we didn't offset their constant blitzing with more screens or at least some draws or quarterback sneaks. Especially down around the goal at the end of the game. That was one thing that worries me. I felt like we did a good job of picking up their blitzes for the most part...seeing as they sent the house almost every play. But we should have had some plays to combat that constant blitzing other than making Cam stand in there and make a play on his own. He was incredible today...but I felt needed some help in various areas. Looks like we got our QB...imagine if we would have ran some screens or something more to catch them offguard...we would have blown them out. With a few more peices to our puzzle...DL...some form of a running game again...we will be a force to deal with. It was a good start...let's see where it goes from here.

Imagine being: deangelo..... Come on, just give me the ball, its 3rd and I wont lose yards....

Imagine being the o line.... All we have to do is block long enough for a short dump off so we can stay in fg range.....

I personally watched mare in warm-ups and he leg from 59, so why did we keep calling pass plays while we were in fg range?

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
