Shula needs to improve his play calling against 3-4 Defenses in my opion, take advantage of LBs trying to cover WRs and TEs

I agree.

 

What's frustrating is that Rivera, and Shula couldn't see the writing on the wall early on in New Orleans, after experiencing that Arizona game that spiraled downward slowly. Touchdowns, not field goals. Why they have to keep learning this lesson is just baffling to me.

Brandon Lafell dropped that 3rd down pass with 15 yards to run which gave New Orleans the ball back. All season we have scored right before the half because we convert those.

Both of those games were on the road and Cam looked lost. Our offense should be able to run better at home.

It was actually a 4th down pass. But yes, Steve's drop, and Lafell's drop hurt us of course.

 

Player execution, and the coaches game plan have to come together. But the Buffalo, and Arizona games were where Rivera supposedly learned his lesson. Yet we settled for 3 points in back to back drives on the road against the Saints. Bring back Riverboat Ron.

Ehhhhh. You're really reaching here. Why am I not surprised though.

 

Cam was flawless on that first drive in AZ, and our offense moved at will on both those first two drives against AZ, and NO.

Get to the redzone and score. The game completely changes when you putting points up on the board. Ask N.O, especially against a BAD team. Confidence, doubt, nervousness, mistakes, rushing to make something... all these things come into play

Yeah we opened both games hanging in there. When we got behind the crowd got motivated and the defense pinned their ears back. We had no answer. We put up 6 points on Arizona and 6 against New Orleans. The Saints were already celebrating when we put up that TD on 4th and 17. Is that what you call moving the ball?

 Jets DB Antonio Cromartie suffered a concussion against the Raiders Sunday and is rated  a 50/50 chance to play against us. Regardless of whether he plays or not,Cam should be able to complete passes and move the chains because the Jets secondary that features Dee Millner and Ed Reed is a disaster area.

If we put up 14 on those first two drives, in both of those games, momentum alone would have changed the games completely. The entire point is to stop settling for field goals against top opponents. We as fans know this, why the coaches have to learn it is the problem.

Well we need to be in 4th a short. I wouldn't go for it on 4th and long either. Whatever led to us being in 4th and long is the problem, not the decision to kick the field goal.
