Shula is very used to responding to criticism.

The only thing that is going to stop it is going into Buffalo this weekend and putting up 20+ on the Bills.

If we only score 10 points up there.... heaven help us.

Heaven help us is right because that means my worst fear has born true. The Tampa/Alabama Shula has not changed. Might as well just being Davidson back.

keep in mind that quote is not in the article.

Apparently joe person is back on the huddle yet again. He said you don't force the issue when the play just isn't there. I promise you. The outcome from doing that is NOT what you want to see.

Contrary to popular belief, no one is hoping for that.

 

I would love nothing more than to go into Buffalo and score 50 points in an offensive clinic.

Rule of thumb, covering you deep then throw over the middle to loosen up the coverage, then smack them deep.basic football.its called making adjustments during the game, which we don't seen to be able to do.

Well, if that's not a Shula quote then I retract my post.

Sure lets chance giving them free points by going for it on 4th down from our 30 yard line and just giving them the lead.. Ohh and fuuuug the defense lets just screw up the field position battle while we are at it even though our defense has been shutting them the fug down. Totally great call! Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

The game of football is just a giant game of chess. Our X's and O's were on point. The fact we lost the turnover battle and had some absolute boneheaded penalties at the worst possible times killed us. Do I also need to bring up the dropped passes?!? Oh I'm sorry is the qb not supposed to hit you in the hands Olsen?

 

 

Was the ball on our 30?  I recalled that it was more like around the 45 or 50.  

 

I realize that it's a big game of chess, but I think we can pick up 4th an inches.

I don't anyone has said "Hey we just have to throw the ball down field."

The offense looked decent in the first half. Once Seattle made half time adjustments, we were shut down. This has been happening to Shula his entire career.

Hopefully we figure something out.

We punted on 2 drives....issue was we only had 3. I don't think Seattle made this huge second half adjustment....we just didn't have enough chances.

I bet Seattle punted 2 times in the 2nd half...

We had three possessions in the second half. That was it.  A seven play drive which resulted in a punt.  A nine play drive which resulted in a punt. And a nine play drive which resulted in a fumble inside the 10 yard line.  In all three possession we had 80 yards to go.  Few teams routinely score from that far away and on the last drive we had them where we wanted them.

 

How exactly was that getting shut down??

If he thinks he is hearing crap now, just wait if the O has a repeat performance.If Mikey boy and Ronnie don't learn how to adjust on the fly and can only see things after the game in the film room.... Then we be screwed

If not for Seattle penalties, we would have punted on all 3 drives.

 

Why is that? We could not get to our own 30 with decent field position and 3 tries?

Know what one of the advantages of having a stout defense is?

Taking some calculated risks on offense hoping for the big payoff (which happens more often then you think on well-coached teams with quality players) KNOWING that if your coin flip comes up tails that you have a good opportunity recovering from that failed chance BECAUSE YOUR DEFENSE CAN STOP THEM.

Which, you may have noticed, they were *doing* more often than not against Seattle.
