Poor coaching by McDermott is becoming a theme

Recommended Posts

I am a member of a general NFL forum and they have told me for the better part of a year now that McDermott holds our roster back. I’ve brushed off these comments for some time, but i’m starting to see their point.

 

- 0 and 7 in one score games the last two seasons

 

- Challenging a clear Titans catch last week was indefensible

 

- Not challenging a potential Gabe Davis TD this week was indefensible 

 

- Playing shallow coverage on 3rd and 22, allowing TWO seperate receivers to get open deep, is indefensible

 

- Not having your WR’s ready to go down with enough time to spike the ball

 

- Don’t even get me started on 13 seconds

 

- Our inability to win short yardage situations for several years is indefensible.

 

- We as a team seem to have removed QB sneak from the play book. We never run it. Ever. See this tweet for how I feel about that. Hard to think that’s not a directive from the top, seeing that two separate OC’s refuse to call it.

3rd string center

3rd string guard

2nd string RT

5th string CB

Back up CB

Diggs had to come off the field every other play in the 4th.

McKenzie had to go out multiple times.

Second string SS

Second string FS

Back up DT

2 practice squad DT called up.

Kumerow who has played decently also leaves with an injury.

 

100 degree heat index and no shade.

 

Thats what we dealt with today.

And the Davis catch was not a touchdown. 

 

You have to catch, control, two feet AND a move common to the game. He didn't have the last bit. 

 

No way would that have been overturned.


I see a lot of people calling it a drop or bashing McD for not challenging it. Both are wrong and idiotic.

The only thing I took from this is that you’re in love with the word “indefensible”. 


His posts continue to suck.

 

He legitimately argued for pages that the Titans have a better roster than us.

I've been on the McDermott sucks at in game coaching decisions for a while, more and more people are realizing it now

 

The issue is that McDermott is also a great coach in every facet/measure besides in game/split second decisions

 

I stand by that he continue to improve but it's starting to get frustrating because the same issues are starting to pop up - mostly conservative defensive calls in key situations

What are you complaining about I thought you missed losing.

 

That wasn’t the point of that thread. It just went over your head. Partially my fault because I didn’t word it properly.

I don’t disagree. I have been really down on McD since the 13 seconds. I feel he crapped his pants in a huge moment and doesn’t get enough criticism for it. I’m fact, the sight of him makes me a little queasy. 
 

That said…he’s our best option. He has helped build the team and deserves a lot of the credit. However…I wish he would push for more offensive help to take some of the burden off Allen.

Thats what we dealt with today.

What are the rules for this? Can the visiting team bring in their own equipment (i.e. EZ Ups or some other type of shade mechanism). Im assuming it would have already been done if it were allowed.

And they still blew two chances to win it
