I know they hadn't been playing great, but there was signs of improving before Newton went down.

Yeah. Gardner looks murderous out there as the extra OT.

And I wished Kubiak wouldn't put Jones on Vince Fork on an island that often.
I wonder why Brandon Brook didn't take some of those snaps.

And we missed Graham's blocking on the edges, too.

Oh well.

Who'd have thunk a TE who is only average (maybe slightly better) would be a better pass blocker than a tackle? Gardner was pathetic out there last night.

In another thread, I said I was upset that we didn't just make Casey a TE & use Clutt's at FB. After watching the game again, I see we pretty much used Casey the way we normally did & used Gardner as a blocking TE.

You would think that would "work" in pass protection situations, but it was ridiculously bad.

I read your post.
I still feel like Casey is not very strong when he's at FB.
There's one play where the LB came into the backfield some four yards.
Casey got down in his stance and still got blown up right into Foster.

That deep in the backfield, the FB needs to at least stay even in his battle.

Without Graham, whether we use Gardner, OD, or Casey as the 2nd TE, we still don't have the same blocking we do as consistently as with Graham.

And we certainly use Newton better than Gardner in the jumbo set.

Regroup...study the film and when they show up for the playoffs in January...see how many of them you can send out on stretchers.
Exact a PAINFUL and bloody revenge.

Whitney will be better. Antonio needs to turn it on & leave it on.

We need to get Newton back. We let Winston go thinking either Butler or Newton would win that job...... not Harris or Gardner.

If it were me, I'd stop calling Casey a full back. He's our third TE period. Clutts should be the FB & Casey will get his snaps as the third TE.

Matt needs to fix whatever personal demons he took into that game last night.

Other than that, everything is fine.
MSR, this is a very accurate post.

The fact that Brooks got no chances to stop Wilfork bother me also.

I thought he could at least spell Jones on at least 15 snaps like he did the previous game, especially against a big guy like Willfork.

And he had earned some playing time based on his play in the last game.

We didn't make a lot of strategic moves that I had hoped for.
Obviously, I'm not the coaches. But all the things I pointed out pre-game became reality.

I'm pretty sure Brooks went into the game for Jones for a few plays.. But no way I'm going back to watch the replay...

Brandon Brooks registered 26 snaps on offense. Now whether it was more toward the end or not I have no clue as I have no interest in seeing that train wreck again like you stated lol.

Well, you should. 'cause Brooks was a better matchup against Big Vince.
