It's one play. It didn't pan out. Why the micro analysis?

Perhaps,  Shula might try doing something, oh, I don't know, unexpected with the play call.

 

You know, a PAP, a boot, a rollout, a slant.....or god forbid, put the QB under center, do a PAP and throw a long pass...something Unitas did decades ago, in case all of this is too revolutionary for Shula.

 

I know this is outrageous but think of the possibilities that do not involve calling a RB's # for a OL that is questionable.

 

Note to Shula:   'You play to win the game'.   You don't play to a scheme your players can't run.

Deep passes against the best secondary in the NFL who is in cover looking to take it away....doesn't sound smart.

Shula played it smart. Cam executed it.....and his teammates screwed it up

Wait you don't think deangelo can bounce a run?

'Da fvck you been the last 4 years?

And PAP doesn't really work when your QB does not have the line so does not take deep drops and you have not established a running game. It just doesn't fool anyone. Jake and co. taught us that lesson over and over.
And over. And over.

I'm not real sure you have a leg to stand on here. I get it. You're mad bro. But this loss is not on Shula. It's also not on Riv. I'm not a coach apologist or anything I just really ceel uneasy when people make fools of themselves. And for the record you are not the only one acting like a fool in here. You just had one of those " matter of fact " tones I could not pass up.

Keep your chin up. This year will be better than last. We just won't go undefeated now. That's the only thing that has been proven.

I'm not mad at all.

 

I hope you are both right.

 

We'll  see at the end of the year.

 

BTW, feel free to make an offer on my PSLs,  section 342, row 20, seats 12/13...Panthers side,

before we make that Playoff and Superbowl run that will cause me to have to raise my price.

If Dwill went to the outside Oslen would have been flagged for holding.

Well said.  The recipe for the win was there.  The players did not play.  I love Greg Olsen but his drops were huge and shocking.

 

Don't know if any of you were watching when there were some designed runs for Cam.  Think he may have gotten a first down or two. You want Cam to run it every time?  Then you complain about being predictable.  I think some are haters and just want to hate.

 

Some veteran players made mistakes that cost us the game.  I expect them to be able to correct that.  It was one game, a heartbreaking loss, but I am still optimistic.  For those of you who chose to be miserable...have at it.

Marshall Lynch had a tough game. His backup came in, made a cutback run and picked up 22 yards. I wonder if fans in Seattle feel that he should be replaced by that player. Zod & CRA have 0 credibility when it comes to making a fair assessment of the running game. None whatsoever.

Actually...he did.

 

Do you remember the 3rd and 2 earlier in the game when they passed the ball? I remember the color commentator saying he didn't like the call because we had been running the ball so well.

 

When plays are successful, people like them. When they aren't, they don't.

 

Shula may end up being horrible this year. It wouldn't surprise me. But I don't understand all the piling on now when it seems to me he called a pretty good game for his first time out.

Our run game isn't going to hold up when Williams literally doesn't take a single run in the A gap.

Williams ran well. With what he did. Overall he wasn't good though...b/c he couldnt hang on to the ball. But it is still a concern....will be easier on opponents to take away if that doesn't change.

I don't think the sky is falling. Why? Bc I don't overreact to one game. I also don't think Williams and our ground attack suddenly is cured....bc of one game either.

I don't still don't think Williams will be our best option.....when Stewart, Barner and Tolbert all get healthy and the season continues.

Fred Jackson ran well too this week....doesn't mean he is what he was

Does anyone else think that Bell looks photoshopped in here?  I mean, seriously, he's so out of position, and nowhere near his man that it looks like his image if from a different game.

 

C'mon, man!
