They say that no one single play determines the outcome of a game.

But last night, the last play could have overcome all the mistakes and missed opportunities that came before.

I'm probably not alone in having the feeling that we were gonna pull this game out of the dumpster fire, as we moved down the field, into the red zone, and inside the 5.  Story book ending.

Arians and his DC gave us a gift-wrapped present with their monumental time-mgmt goof, calling 2 TO's consecutively.  What a coaching 101 idiot move that was.  Should have been the goat horns on them .. but no.

Despite the advantage we gained from turning a 4th and 1 1/2, into a 4th and 1/2 yard, we blew the chance.

Some say they didn't mind the play call. It had worked last game. (but that is precisely why it shouldn't have been called this time.  You think TB didn't study tape from the Rams' game?)

Far better calls, with greater chances of success, would have been to bring in Armah, and let either him, or Cam take it over the top.  Talk about plays that have worked before!  Good for 1/2 yard?   Duh.

Or roll Cam to the right, away from the strength of the Bucs' DL, with the option of running through a gap, or tossing a 5yd TD to Olsen, crossing behind the D from the left.

It coulda been candy and nuts...

Yes, it should have either been a FB dive with Armah, a QB Power with Cam or an I formation, HB dive with a FB lead, but we got none of those.  Instead we get bullshit Wildcat, mis-direction crap, where CMC has to run 10 yards to try and pick up a foot.  It was pathetic, and a fitting end to a pathetic 5 days of football.

It was basically a short yardage hail Mary. Accepting that we were completely out of ideas. A total boom/bust gadget misdirection play. It was either going to get blown up or it was going to be a walk-in TD. Well, we know which way that one went.

Was a soft play call. We used to be a hard nosed team but that’s no longer the case.

I think all that went away the moment our star QB starts wearing a goddamn bonnet to his post game pressers.  His Bougie Granny look does not scream hard nosed football guy to me.

Brady, Brees, Rodgers...hell even Dak and Mahomes would have made that throw to Samuels for winning TD!!!  Even with defenders in the face!  Why?!  Because that is nothing new to quarterbacks!!!  Defenders are always gunning for you and getting in your face!!!  Still should have connected with that pass!  I did love Cam and rooted hard for him early on, but he is NOT the same Cam anymore, people change or get ruined by the moronic coaching staff!

LOL...He is gay.  Nothing against gay folks.....he is just simply gay.  Before you all start screaming he got kids and all....you all know men who have kids only to come out gay later in life!  But that isn't the point......point is.....Cam got soft, period.

What baffled me more than the playcall itself....

 

was that after the double TO, we gave them THE EXACT SAME GODDAMN LOOK AND FORMATION as we were initially going to run on the 4th and 1.5.

 

I embarrassed myself in front of the ATL Riot folks when I bolted out of my chair and screamed at the TV.

What's worse on that play is that Cam is lined up as a decoy to McC's right.  Did anyone think McC was going to run right and have Cam as a lead blocker?  There was only 1 direction he could have ran.  What a dumb ass play call.

Should’ve won this game before that last drive. One last play shouldn’t determine the outcome. We kicked 4 fgs

There is this, but not about the FG's.

Go watch 2nd and 10 from the 11.  Cam has two wide open receivers, DJ around the 6 and Samuel in the end zone.

It's kinda hard to see, but as the ball is released the defender on DJ here has a hand on the ground trying to turn and run with DJ.  A good throw and DJ scores.

But that's not the sickening one.  Look at Curtis here:

That last play was never the problem.  This game was won.  Right here on 2nd and 10.  Great play design with the over / under concept, isolating your two best receivers such that their defenders had no help and honestly no hope.  All Cam has to do is pick ONE of these guys to score the winning touchdown.

And he failed with ball skying over DJ and falling at Curtis' feet.

I knew right when Cam motioned that it wasn't going to work lol Lol Cam ran one time the whole game (in which he fumbled), and Norv thinks motioning him out is going to garner attention. Like what? We went for the homerun swing when all we needed was a SAC bunt. The fact they didn't run a play that is almost automatic (Cam sneak) makes me think Cam is A LOT MORE hurt than they are letting on...................or they're just fuggin dumbasses, which is what I'm going with.

I was infuriated when cam went wide, why the fug does this coaching staff constantly out smart themselves, just run the qb sneak or fb dive, if they can stop us from going over the top they deserve to win

I can’t see how that last play sits well with Tepper and his analytics guys.  For a guy that’s plays the probabilities for a living he probably lost his mind watching that.  

That will be the nail in the coffin for why he needs to remake the team with his philosophies.
