Poor coaching by McDermott is becoming a theme

It's one loss with a ton of players out.  We weren't going 17-0.  We will lose 2-3 more regular season games so prepare yourself now.

Maybe they can win a close game for once and not cave when the going gets tough?

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.

 

 

What is “shallow coverage”?

Anyone blaming the coaches in this L is friggin nutty. Yeah, you’d like to have a couple calls back in retrospect BUT - if the players executed just one of numerous plays that were there to be made, we win. This loss is on the players and the lack of execution. Yes, the coaching could be better but al the points we left on the field were not the result of coaching decisions.

I've been saying it for years...McD is not a championship caliber coach. I always hope he evolves, but I don't think it's gonna happen. 

 

One could argue we have missed at least one year of our championship window...possibly two.

 

Will this organization be content with being a contender, or will they look to shake things up if they aren't meeting their ultimate goal?

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

McKenzie had to go out multiple times.

 

 

100 degree heat index and no shade.

 

Thats what we dealt with today.

 

Seriously??? They play there every year and haven't had so many players cramp up or have to leave the field as they did today. New England played there with a 108 degree index. Guess how many players they had leave the game? Zero!!!

The play to Gabe in the endzone wasn't going to be overturned.  The problem on 3rd and 22 is we only rushed 3 guys.  We were getting pressure on Tua all day.  If anything we should have blitzed 5 and given him no time to get the ball way downfield.  I was livid at that defense.  

 

Let’s talk about what-if it wasn’t overturned.

 

Would that have been the worse thing?

 

The players were exhausted, it was about to be third down, we need to get in the endzone - would the extended timeout have been good despite the chance they lose the challenge?

 

Perhaps more fitting than calling timeout on the next drive on a random mid-field(ish) first down!

Also a dropped pick 6, a missed FG, 2 missed opportunities to get a shot at a FG, Gabe Davis dropping a TD, Josh missing Mckenzie in the end zone.

 

For sure, McDermott probably should have went out there and made the plays for them.

 

It's the NFL, you can't win every game.

We held the ball for 40 minutes on offense.

They were on the field twice as long as Miami’s offense.  Did we lose any defensive players from heat?

 

Our offense and defense was completely depleted.  What is your point?

Relax - it's a long season.  Like I said we weren't going 17-0, and those who thought we were need to get real.

These posts make it on this board after every loss. It’s not gonna happen.

I agree about McDermott. There’s always that element of executing under pressure that they continue to be lacking. And they fail in bizarre fashion reflective of mental collapse. It’s exactly why the Super Bowl hype is misplaced.

But it was still winnable. We missed an easy FG. We bobbled a snap and then inexplicably threw a pass instead of grounding for another FG. Either of those gets kicked and we win. It’s a game of 2-4 key plays and the early fumble TD gave them some hope early.

I agree that Josh was a little off by the end. Our best guys on D and O were needing to overcompensate for hell breaking loose prior and then during the game. 

He threw a grounder to an open receiver that probably would have been the winning score, and he took a sack late that ate a bunch of time.  He wasn't perfect but had a solid game overall.
