This was harsh ... very hard to take
He didn't lose the game. Kyle Shanahan was making the calls.
I'm sure in his press conference tomorrow Kubiak will still insist that we are a run-first team and should set up the pass by running.
They showed him looking at the chart before 3rd & 4th down
He is most likely pissed at our second half performance for not running enough.
Do you honeslty think Shanahan is making the calls in those situations? He's not......even when Kubiak was allowed to make calls in Denver, Shanahan had veto power and often used it. I highly doubt Kubiak is putting his coaching career in the hands of Shanahan in situations like that.
Baloney. That 3rd and 1 call was the right call. Dreessen was WIDE OPEN. Schaub sailed it about 6 inches too high. If he'd come down with it, you'd all be calling Shanahan a genius.
Why would we run it? We obviously aren't tough enough to punch it in from there.
If Schaub sets his feet on 3rd down we have an easy TD. That was a GREAT call on 3rd down. Poor execution is why it didn't work.
Two games - 6 feet
Is what seperates this team from a winning record
Winning in the trenches means winning football games - its that simple.
This team cant get a yard when they have to ....
Can we please end the assumption that Chris Brown is a good short yardage back? And how about getting some Tarzans on the interior of the offensive line. Tired of these Janes getting shoved backwards.
well, hello, all damn game, except for maybe one or two instances, on short yardage plays we were stufffed, generated zero push, this is on whoever was making these calls, and schaub for missing some wide open recievers
I would have gone with the QB sneak on the 4th down play. I think the problem with the o line in that situation is that we cannot stop the penetration. By going with a sneak, you limit the time the Dline can get into the backfield.
This loss is on Kubiak. He will say so himself tomorrow.
Why take the chance? Schaub gets real nervous in tight situations.
The 3rd down call was the right call. Arizona bit and Dreesen was wide open but Schaub overthrew it. The 4th down call was stupid. Our interior O-line sucks and we have not been able to get any room inside all game long. A run is ok but he needs to run outside not inside where we're getting constantly owned.
Yep. Now, lets also remember that Arizona plays a 3-4 D. So, now we have struggled to run against the Jet 3-4 and the Cardinal 3-4.
I'm pretty sure Schaub's interception and overthrown pass in the endzone contributed to this loss as well.
All Schaub had to do was set his feet and it was a TD. Was really pissed on that one. Also, I'm really tired of this Chris Brown love. Enough of him at the goalline.
it ain't chris brown, don't get me wrong, he ain't a world beater, but its our o line for failing to get a push at the line of scrimmage.
