Those moments that change the game.
That way, we aren't in that position where we need him to be "clutch" in the last few minutes of a game?
To me clutch moments are the moments where you 'feel' like....ok WE HAVE TO HAVE THIS...Even if it isn't true in the long run....
It's those high pressure/tension moments where you feel like it's make this play or it's going to suck really bad...
Not scientific, I know.....
far too often?
I'm not seeing it. I'll give you our three losses & the Denver game. That's four games where we were "jumped on" four out of 15 games isn't any worse than any other coach has done so far this year.
A couple weeks ago when Kubiak said he ripped the players, I ripped him. I wasn't just talking about this year. If you think back over the years, there have been too many times (IMO) where the team has come out and underachieved.
