The long pass to Smitty in the end zone on 2nd & 8, with a little over 2mins to go, was even worse. We were already in field goal range, and one more 1st down would've pretty much ended the game. You don't pass the ball at that point in the game.

We were in the exact same situation against the Saints at home last year, and on 3rd & 2 we throw a deep pass to Smitty. SMH

It's like Chud doesn't learn from his mistakes. SMH


Scoring a TD in that situation would have very likely won the game.

What team have you been watching all year?

I understand that the coaches are to blame for a lot of our problems but just don't get some of the complaints.

If we sit on a lead and run the ball then people complain that we are playing "not to lose". But if they get more aggressive and try to move the ball through the air, then it's a dumb play call. It's like they can do nothing right.

I think the coaches are to blame, yes. But a lot comes down to execution and we can't overlook that.

If he calls three straight runs and we punt, there is a thread about how terrible those calls were.

The play call is not the problem here, it was the execution.

Unfotunately, Smith slipped and Cam couldn't hold the throw. It happens.

For years, John Fox would get a lead and go super conservative as far as play calling. And everyone hated on him for it. So at least it's a change from that, fwiw...

THIS^ We got what we asked for. Now deal with it!
