    Why is the right side of the offensive line still splitting time? I dont understand how the line will build continuity when they are coming in and out of the game. Brooks had a stupid ass holding penalty inside the 10 that killed what should have been an easy TD. I really hope they don't employ this philosophy next week, and I would be thrilled if somebody would ask Gary this directly at the presser today or tomorrow.

    Why was/is/will Shiloh Keo be involved in the secondary rotation allowing him to kill us in coverage? I heard Mayock insinuate something that Keo was getting significant playing time due to some kind of disciplinary action on Demps? Can anyone verify this? You would think that Gary would be a little more creative with his discipline come playoff time instead of throwing a guy out there who could potentially cost this team a victory.

    Did you see those 2 long TD passes to TY Hilton by Luck? Those were both all over Demps. I was hoping Pleasant would be getting some PT personally.

    1) Because it takes 2 Guards & 2 Tackles from the current roster to replace Brisiel & Winston. (Mostly Winston.)

    2) Demps is in Wade's doghouse.

    Demps gave up some huge plays. Keo, outside of that one PI call, seemed to do a good job in coverage against the Bengals. I was just fine with Houston not giving up 70 yard bombs yesterday.

    Why do people start threads with non descriptive titles?

    why do people need descriptive thread titles? Too hard to run your cursor over the title and get the gist of what OP had in mind?

    i can understand demps getting burnt, but for the most part this year he's been solid, and i would guess he's just overall a better player than shiloh keo.

    gotta dance with who brung ya, no?

    If the person "who brung ya" is giving up huge plays and your team is in a losing streak? No.

    correct, i agree. luckily for us, fans the team won yesterday. my concern stems from the passing attack we will be seeing out there next week, and brady WILL find where Keo is on the field and expose him. I'd rather have a superior athlete out there, I feel he would give us a better chance.

    I think that's a valid question. I mean unless there's a fatigue issue with the starter, why sub him because if he's the starter that means he's atleast as good as anybody else on the roster at his position.
    And on another potential "doghouse" subject, anybody know who that was who got us the offside penalty on the KO ?

    the oline being rotated is giving away what plays we are running.

    Kubiak favors certain linemen for either running or passing plays and its showing defenses what play is coming hence the predictability concern the offense is showing.

    If i can see it,

    trust me, the greatest coach of all time is seeing it.

    We wouldn't have been playing this weekend if Demps was doing his job. Well, our chances would have been better anyway.

    You do know they are rotated by series right? The guy who starts the series plays all the way through. They don't change them out between downs...... say if we want to run to the right we'll put Brooks in. That's not the way it goes.

    If Brooks & Harris is playing, Brooks & Harris will play until the offense scores or fails to convert a third down.

    I'm not much of a Keo fan. Didn't we bring back Troy Nolan recently? I'd like to see him out there before Keo. Unless, he was released again.

    Jules is running around posting out his posterior as if he is super coach.

    It's real popular when people aren't happy to start claiming they know every play and know every problem.

    Yes, you are so persecuted. Thread topics in the title help elevate redundant threads.
