WTF??? 3rd & 18 and we run a draw??? - mcmillenandwife - 11-13-2017

I can't take it. I just can't take Todd Haley anymore. 

It's like they're playing a different game.

And now it's 4th and 34.

 Good thing we used our bye week wisely. Clearly, we are ultra-prepared for this game offensively.

There were more than a few gaffes on defense as well. Like for 14 points. Btw, did you notice the defense played a lot better when Mitchell went down?

Mitchell is constantly late on deep ball help.

I like Wilcox as a player, interested to see how he plays Thursday.

I wouldn’t count on much out of this team on a short week, unless.... they spent their bye week preparing for the Flamming Thumb Tacks, and not allocating any reps for the Colts....Naaa, they just sucked today.

The rest of the NFL plays PS4 or X-box.

Haley's playing Pac Man on the Atari 2600: The biggest hyped home video game of all time, which was a total fucking ripoff when released.

One thing I’ve noticed is opposing defenses have caught up to our blocking schemes on these counters, and to a certain extent, Bell’s jerky running style. DeCastro and Pouncey are great in space, but lack sand in the pants to drive block. They need to be running some play action bootlegs away from the direction of the counters to keep the defense honest. There would be some risk of Ben getting tagged, but there would be someone or someones wide open.

It is very painful to watch, it is taking me back to the Joe Walton/ Bubby Brister days.

Why isn't Connor in the mix more, he gets his 1 obligatory carry a game. He is such a radical change from Bell's style it seems to throw the defense off.

Did you see him hobble of the field after his run? Could be my imagination, but it seem like evertime he runs, he comes up limping. Kind of reminiscent of Fuamata-Malala, only a lot faster. 

As for being painful, like getting your toe nails removed sans medication.

He got rolled by a teammate on that run.

Make him the 3rd down back at least. He's faster than Bell.

Definitely faster,  it it would be great if they gave him at least one other play to run. Well, the good news is he was not on the injury list so far this week.
