Cam played very well today. All QB's throw picks, all have thrown a pick when a reciever slips - thats part of the game. Overall, I was quite happy to see the offense actually "play" today. We drove the length of the field several times - we did not have many 3/outs. Yes, there are points left on the field by scoring FG's instead of TD's. I'm not willing to throw the offense under the bus for that - it was not for lack of trying. Yes, some were drops, some were bad plays - but I feel like some people here forget that the other team gets paid to play too. Overall - this was the best, most consistent offense we have seen since the NO game.
The D played lights out for 58 minutes - the score won't show it, but they have not allowed more than 20 pts in the last 3 games. They were asked to play short fields all day and held up pretty well - till the prevent defense was called.
Todays loss was not on any one player, any one play.
It was a collection of things - and some things lead to other issues.
Not attempting FG @ half - might have made a difference, might not - but, had Oleson charged Cams pass (previous possession) - it's not INT and we have plenty time to get closer or score TD.
Murphy drops pass in endzone? Smitty drops pass in endzone? Smitty doesn't slip on timed route? Punter kicks more than 6 yds. People mad cause we burned TO's - but the 12 man on the field saved us 5 yds - which ended up being the difference in Goulds missed FG (would have been inside the pylon if 5 yds closer).
I'm just saying that I for one don't think the team sucked today - but I do feel the coaching decisions leave alot to be desired. How can you let a team march down the field using the exact same play over and over and yet do nothing about it?
I agree with you... It seems that large number of members here seem to forget that football is a team game and everyone had to execute well at their position for the play to be a success, not to mention that the opposing team has quality players as well whose job is to disrupt the play. Its a pretty easy concept... Just seems that ppl want an individual to blame for why we lost the game.
