Did not lose this game...


Poor coaching decisions right before the half was the proverbial thorn in CSP's side. I was unable to watch the 1st half due to some traveling but listened to it on the radio. As soon as I heard an end around play called and it goes for 1 yard, I knew it was not going to be a long night. We were driving the ball with forward momentum until that play.

Is this a joke? We got 2 stops on defense all night, and you're gonna single out one offensive play? smdh

A dumb call situationally, but if it works he's a genius.

Once again though that's not the problem. The problem is you are seriously splitting hairs as to why the offense can't score or have perfect drive every possession to keep pace with all the points our terrible defense is surrendering.

It's all getting very old.

We didnt give up 45 points on that one play.

Just like we didnt give up 22 points in the 4th vs Oakland because we didnt run the ball.

There's a common denominator here.

I guess you're right...I missed the muffed punt that seemed to put the defense against the wall. I also have to have some sort of faith in a top 10 offense to make smart decisions when this so called injury riddled young defense is trying to hold their own against another top 10 offense. I will admit the D had a very bad interference call before the half.

I guess I really don't know what to pull for!

I also didn't understand decision to not run the hurry up on the last possession. They even wasted their second timeout after a completion for a first down and allowed the Falcons pass rushers to catch their breath. Three negative plays from sack or pressure ensued.
