    That PI call to convert the 4th down was kind of shameful. There was contact, but it was in no way enough to cause JJ to fall down. He flopped like a euro soccer player. That play pretty much summed up his play for me. AJ gets mauled worse than that on a regular basis and just goes out and makes plays. KW fights through contact like that, plays physical, and even initiates that physicality in blocking. JJ just flails his arms out wide and flops.

    You could see the team was mentally soft the way they were not playing through contact and begging for calls - especially Jones and Dreessen. It is a cancer, but it is expected when there is no leadership on the field or on the sidelines. The script can only take the drama class so far.

    Agreed. If only we had someone who would yell at them on the sidelines!

    I had forgotten that play, but when you mentioned "the flop" I knew exactly which play you were talking about.

    But Jacoby is who our respected leader thought was not only worth holding onto, but resigning. Man, we're lucky.

    It really is baffling why Kubiak is keeping this guy around. One could be led to believe that the coach has taken a personal liking to his player and is blinded by the sentiment of their relationship.
