    I've seen enough. Dude literally coaches himself out of the game. From the seven step drop every play lack of run game first half, blown dropped catch timeout on gronk, the clock management in the fourth quarter. This guy does not have it. I'm ready to move on. Discuss.

    The Gronk one was just horrible not to use a TO there. BOB did coach many guys open. DW4 could not hit and was tentative. So mixed

    Where was this exciting new offense he spent all offseason working on?

    His back of a cigarette packet scribblings to work Watson unexpectedly into the offense last season worked a treat, yet he has 7 months to think about it and mitigates his strongest weapon in the process.

    FRAUD

    His post game comment about it not being his job to call a timeout so refs can review is only the 966th reason he's given for him to be fired.

    What an incomprehensible statement to make.

    We saw it. Our exciting new offense is "forget blocking - put everyone into sandlot routes and Watson is going to save us".

    At mimiun, he must find an OC to run his offense. Delegate and oversee operation otherwise he is just an OC and not a head coach.

    It would be better to throw the challenge flag. If you win the challenge you save the time out.

    Not even in Madden do people push that much no-huddle and empty-back sets. Anyone able to rub a couple NFL brain cells together has experienced the fact that neither are sustainable offenses, and certainly not together. They also know that you run INSIDE against pass defense (as opposed to 4 failed sweeps to start the game). You keep a back available to mask your intentions, as well as give audible options. Seriously, wtf.

    Right, but doesn't O'Brien take some blame there, for not getting the 1st team offense more snaps in preseason?

    There are still 15 games left. So everyone has a chance at redemption. But O'Brien has a lot of redeeming to do. I don't think it is going to happen for him.

    It was inside of 2 minutes. The NFL screwed up not buzzing the play. OB screwed up not calling the timeout to at least give them more time to decide to buzz it, but apparently OB is a TO hoarder. Hates giving those things away. He's probably got a garage full of them.

    He stacks up his spare time outs right next to his pile of rotating QBs.

    Coaches cannot challenge calls in the last 2 minutes of a half. Challenges at that time are initiated by the replay official. Who today was a Patriot homer.

    That's why you call a timeout.
    And not let the Pat's get off a snap

    Exactly. Call the timeout and get in the ref's grill. Any fan knows this. If O'Brien had given a mea culpa, "My bad. I had a brain fart", I would at least know he understands. But to come out and take no blame? That's telling everyone he's not going to be a championship coach.

    O’Brian can still call timeout.

    Apparently it was Shane's job - but we cut him, new punter better step up his coaching game.
