Personally, I am thrilled that we are taking our bye this week. On the one hand it would've been nice to have had it last week to get an extra week to prepare for the Colts but at the same time I think it was nice to see 1 game without OD so that the coaching staff would be better equipped to review what needs to be done to make up for his departure to IR. Plus we get a week for Mario and Cushing to heal their nagging injuries so they can hopefully practice every week for the stretch run. AND We get an extra week to make sure we're on our P's and Q's for a huge division game on MNF against the Tacks. This is nothing short of a must win. We lose this game we're effectively out of the hunt because we're no longer in control of our own destiny. That would give us 4 conference losses out of 5 and a very likely possibility we could lose 4 more (road games at Jax and Mia and tough opponents at home Indy and NE). We need to beat Tennessee and i'm happy we get an extra week to "get right". Last year we didn't have a bye week and we managed to do well down the stretch. This year we get one at an excellent time and I hope our team makes the most of it. Things i'd like to see addressed over the bye week: 1) Schaub's 1 or 2 WTF decisions per game. We've gotta figure out how to keep him from making these decisions!!! That 1st INT could've effectively ended the game...why would you throw it in triple coverage that early in the game and give it right back to Peyton in our territory? Luckily the D held them to a FG but that was the margin by which they beat us. If we're gonna win the tough games down the stretch and avoid surprises against the teams we should beat (Tenn, the NFC teams) we've gotta get rid of those WTF decisions by Schaub. 2) Fumbling at the RB position. Every RB on the active roster has lost a fumble that effectively cost us the game. Brown VS JAX, Slaton in a number of games...too many to list and you could argue the one against NYJ ruined any chance we had at capturing momentum, and now Moats @ Indy. These turnovers are unacceptable and its a wonder we're above .500 with the amount of times we've given the ball to the other team already. The only stat that is a better predictor of winning and losing is the final score so we need to get this fumbling problem under control!!! 3) How to replace OD. They were on track this week by spreading it out to the WRs but it was obvious, especially early in the game, that Schaub was struggling without OD in the lineup. Would he have forced that throw to AJ that resulted in the 1st INT if he had OD as an option? Who knows, but the fact is if we dont replace his production we dont have a shot at the playoffs. I'd like to see us use more screens with Slaton and Moats. We had great success with it against Cincy but I guess the Colts D speed snuffed it out. We need to find a way to get that facet of our O back or some other way to distribute OD's touches. 4) Defense has to reign in those penalties. I know it comes with being aggressive but if a penalty keeps the opponent's drive alive that is unacceptable. 13 penalties and I think 9 were on the defensive side of the ball last week. Even if the refs were flag happy that is too many especially the number of presnap penalties. Its simply unacceptable to give the offense free yards especially after all the improvements the D has made while the ball is actually snapped!!!
