I'm not sure what kind of shoes Braman was wearing. I noticed he slipped on a couple punts. This is a pic right before he slipped. They appear to be in their lanes. They just failed.

It's safe to say Braman is NOT a ST ace. IMO, he should've been let go. He offers nothing on defense and has been a liability on STs

*By no means am I excusing Marciano*

Wow, didn't realize Sharpton was there too. Dude shouldn't have got past the 30.

This team just lacks athletes and it shows on special teams. If you really think about it, not a single player on offense is able to take a short gain and bust it for a long TD. Most long plays are off design. It's pretty painful when you realize Keyshawn doesn't have the speed to break one on returns. He wouldn't have done what Doss did.

On defense, the texans best athlete is Watt so that doesn't help ST.

Yup, once Keo and Braman fall down Doss runs right between Sharpton and Swearinger. Leaving Lechler as the only player with a chance to stop him.

Default Re: All Encompassing Fire Joe Marciano

both sharpton and braman (and probably dj) are angling much harder to the right than it looks in the picture ... why? and where are the other 6 players? did we call a punt right and everybody's just doing their job but lechler? why are the lane assignments pushed so far to the right, and why does everyone wait until it's too late to break off? i'm putting that on coaching.

We need to bump this thread every week. It's easy to forget about how bad our special teams is when the rest of our team sucks, but seriously? Our special teams unit flat out sucked today, like always.

This team needs better athletes. They are slow getting covering kicks. What happens is one guy gets down there way faster than everyone else and at that point, contain is broken.

On the other end, Keyshawn just isn't a good kick returner. He isn't that elusive and doesn't have the speed to break one.

I like Martin as a returner, despite his recent struggles. I think it's tough... He's trying to make a play and his blocking is total garbage.

I don't think athleticism is our problem on special team's coverage. Braman is an excellent athlete. He's just very undisciplined. Today, again, he just gave away containment for no reason. Of course, watching our defenive struggles-seeing a lack of depth at LB and safety, it does occur to me that those are the positions that usually excel in special team coverage.

Also, I could die happy if I was never forced to watch Brice McCain play "gunner" on the punt team. The guy, sometimes, literally, does not cross the line of scrimmage until the play is over. He gets absolutely manhandled by the blocking. Painful!

Default Re: All Encompassing Fire Joe Marciano

Special Teams have been broken here for so long that I think the coaches just believe it's supposed to look that way. Marciano should have been fired 3-4 years ago. Now it's like "Why bother?".

We've sent great returners to other teams and we're left with Martin who threatens no one on returns and all because we can't coordinate the damn coverage/blocking. That's Marciano. Year in and year out not matter who is playing special teams we can't get these guys on the same page. There's got to be someone at the college level or who is a part of some teams staff that's getting blown up in a HC firing that could fix this. We never do anything about it.

It's like they like being this ****ed up. Like they enjoy doing this stuff the hard way.

When K-Mart made the run back I thought, "Oh no, 1 year extension for Joe"
When Bullock made the 51 yarder I thought, "Oh no, they'll make Joe head coach"
