Default Re: Jags fake punt

On the Kubes show yesterday he kind of changed his tune about not calling the timeout. Instead of acting like they had it stuffed he admitted that they knew it was coming but that the personnel on the field became confused before the snap so THEN a timeout may have bene necessary....he said it was his fault for that.

For those that didn't see the play, here's what I posted in another thread:

#34 Dominique Barber totally whiffed. He's supposed to be a safety, an aspiring NFL caliber defensive player. His hard hitting brother in Dallas should demand that Dominique change his last name, effectively immediately.

#12 Jacoby Jones whiffed, but he's not a defensive player, so his ineptness gets a pass, I guess.

#38 DeMarcus Faggins was horrible. He did his best Philip Buchanon impression there. He had the best shot at stopping the guy, but he makes a weak effort to strip the ball instead.

#32 Fred Bennett barely even ran. He must've been shell shocked, slow to figure out what was going on.

And not a single Texans player seemed to notice that THEY DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A KICKER IN THE BACKFIELD!!

Epitome of keystone cops on that play.
I see the same things as the OP. On that play, every player on the field was sleepwalking, and every coach went brain dead.

And to Jacoby's credit it looked like he sold out trying to tackle the guy, as he came sprinting up towards the line and ended up sprawled on the ground. He over pursued and took a horrible angle, but at least he dove after the guy. He doesn't know how to tackle, but he tried.

I have no idea what Faggins was thinking, but then again you can say that about Faggins on almost every play.

Once again the glaring failure on this defense and special teams is an inability to take care of fundamentals. Specifically, TACKLE THE DAMN BALL CARRIER!!

Too many blown tackles, trying to tackle the ball instead of the carrier, and just bad technique. That is a pathetic display for a pro team.

Im just pissed that Kubiak assumes we are going to stuff a team running the ball when we are in a punt return formation. That is just retarded.

Why didn't he have his unit more prepared? Why didn't he say anything when he noticed the funky formation?

Special teams haven't been anything special this season.

He is referring to specifically. Look at all the threads and his name is not mentioned specifically like Kubiaks is. so maybe he is not the one who is doing the 'straw man' thing what ever that means. It is easier to make an assumption that the poster does not know what he is talking about and that you are the only one who does than think about what he is saying.
