Can't blame the guy for staying mum on his strategies.
Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with the hater threads, if it would have came during the winning streak. Especially the Atlanta & Cincinnati game.
There were several reasons during that game to explain why the game went the way it did. Other than the first 15 plays, Gary only has an idea of how the game is going to play out. Other than that, he handles each situation as they come up.... just like you would.
We threw on first down, we threw on second down & we threw on 3rd down. A bigger problem (I think) than our 1-10 3rd down conversions, is the fact that we couldn't gain more than 2 yards on 1st down, or 2nd down 10 times to put us in those 3rd & longs...
We weren't staying on schedule & we weren't protecting our QB.
By protecting our young QB I mean we weren't running the ball well or playing good defense. If we can run the ball well, if we can play good defense, if we can stay on schedule, we can let Tj play.
If not, we're going to protect the lead. If we're trailing, we're going to ask Tj to step up.
We're going to win as a team. That gives us the best chance to go deep in the play-offs.
