Also, while he isn't the offensive coordinator, he ultimately is responsible and 727 pass attempts makes for a very one dimensional offense.

Pretty similar to the Chargers under Norv in my mind, a lot of talent being wasted by poor coaching.

Good lord! Chance to go up two scores in the 4th quarter? Sounds like a perfect time for a fake FG! :facepalm:

They were up 4 it would have put them up a td not two scores.

You're right, typo in my part. Still dumb.

Sorry! Couldn't resist! :beer:

 

Before the game Marrone told EJ to let it fly.  I think he had been playing too conservative up until yesterday.  Some of his deep balls didn't look too good, but I'll chalk it up to the strong winds.

 

Watching Geno Smith play reminds me a lot of watching AJ Burnett pitch (when he was on the Yankees).  From one day to the next, you have no idea if you're going to good Geno or bad Geno.

Actually, Geno and the Jets have been the most predictable team in the league. They won last week, so we knew they were gonna lose this week. Just like we know they're gonna win next week...

 

Only team to alternate wins and losses in the first 10 games of the season. lol

:beer: it's okay, have to take the bad with the good.

 

Fortunately I was out golfing for most of the game so I didn't see Geno doing his best impersonation of Mark Sanchez.  I picked up the Bills on my fantasy team because I had a feeling the ugly Jets and Geno were going to show up, they scored 26 points for me.

These Lions games are getting painful to watch. Almost makes me wish for the days of old when I went into every game expecting them to lose.

 

Almost...

Well, the Browns lost half of their annual Super Bowl today. Yawn.

Chargers finally came out on top of one of their nail biters for once!

Cows take Giants.

 

Satisfying win … at the buzzer.

 

Romo keeps the ball for last 4:55. Nice.

 

 

 

Although the Cows are merely an average team.

post #299 of 1006
Romo is actually a great QB although his playoff record would say otherwise. I just think their whole issue is Jerry Jones and his hands on approach. He needs to stay out of he way IMO for the Cows to have any future success. Go Hawks!!!!

Is RG III a shot player already? Or is Shanahan just an idiot and exposing him unecessarily?

He's certainly regressed.  Its not just that he can't run, he was a terrific passer last year.  I don't know if its the injury or the coach or what.  Hopefully with a full year off he can get back to where he was.

He (RGIII) is only in his second year -- it's typical for a guy to regress after one year, plus he is coming off a severe injury.

 

Let's see what he does to rehab more during the offseason and develop his skills.

Both, the legend of bob griffin was nothing more than an alleged legend..

Shanahans *legacy* is all based on the man with horse teeth.

I also don't think he was fully healthy in Week 1 and rushed back from his injury. He didn't play as explosive as he did but I think he was just trying to be conservative, which really isn't his game.

I agree with you 100%. I think he rushed back to be ready for week 1. A guy like that who depends on his legs quite a bit has to be fully healthy to be effective. I read this week that he's pressing also becasue he knows that Kirk Cousins is looking over his shoulder. He knows Cousins is no scrub.

RG III obviously has a deteriorating relationship with his coaches, particularly the Shanahans.

 

I read a piece out of Washington yesterday and I see that some are starting to refer to him as RG 3 and 8.
