Kubiak's clock management is atrocious

    Last week against the Colts and this last drive. No sense of urgency. Maybe we need to get a clock manager that the Jets had for Herm Edwards. Awful call on 3rd down. What a joke.

    I agree totally. I figured he would've learned from his mistakes from last week but this was embarrassing. Ridiculous play calling.

    The last person I want to blame is Kubiak, but I don't know what to say after this game.

    Biggest problem is we can't run the damn ball to save our lives. Add to that the piss-poor playcalling and we can't do anything.

    the 4th and 1 with 3:30 is an easy call field goal you still have 2 TO and the 2 min warning. wide pitch on 3rd and goal with a slow back. he has been bad calling plays and clock management all day.

    I always thougt Kubes was a bright guy. His management of the clock has been Capers like. Not knowing how to manage a clock is inexcusable as an NFL head coach.

    This game was definitely lost by the coaching staff. Bad play calling, bad time management and team was not prepared to play. Think this team has been reading too many press clippings. They overlooked the Falcons.

    I hate our 5 wide empty backfield look. We fool no one with that. The defense pins their ears back and we are left with a hurried throw and a wasted play.

    Whomever blitzed (or called the blitzes) lost the game for us. 3rd down blitzes were easily discovered and anticipated.

    Bad coaching, awful defense, boneheaded mistakes, terrible clock management, questionable play calling, penalties, turnovers...

    Besides that we looked okay.:gun:

    I found the play calling too conservative. Fourth and 1, QB sneak plain and simple.

    Kubiak got outcoached in every facet of the game today and it was sickening. Hopefully they can learn from this disaster.

    Can we really say this team is for real after today's loss...I understand we were banged up, but some of the idiotic play calling, bad clock management, and piss poor play on both sides of the ball is inexcusable.

    Are you kidding me? Dayne avg. 10 yards in the first quarters. But Kubiak kept running the play to the right side, like the other team won't freaking catch on. Kubiak must think Petrino is stupid or something.

    We got coaches coaching the players, now we need to hire another coach to coach Kubiak and his staff.

    I thought we should have forced it into AJ and Green more.

    I honestly never thought we'd be playoff caliber until next year. We have obvious holes but I hope we can make some moves this offseason to shore up both sides of the ball.

    The play-calling was god awful today so I hope Kubes can learn from today and make the necessary changes. Hopefully, not playing Ron Dayne will be one of them.

    I hate how Kubiak turned it into a FG game. We had a 4 and 1 on the 1 yd. line and we decided to freakin kick it. jeez

    We were badly outcoached today. Uh, I am a UT fan as well. This has been an awful weekend of football. Both coaching staffs deserve the blame.

    I never want to blame injuries but when you are missing as many players, especially offensive weapons, that hurts. I do think the play calling was much too conservative and Kubiak had no killer instinct. 4th and 1, my god, do a freaking QB sneak for god sakes.

    VERY disappointing game but I am not ready to throw in the towel like so many other on the official board were. If they learn from this it only makes them a better team.

    He averaged that much because one play was for 25 yards. Take that out and he'd have run for a 2 yard average, which is what his normal day is.
