In response to patsfan76's comment:
How to go to LLoyd all day for 1st downs and then when it counts, you call a reverse?? You gotta get those plays out the way early! You dont call them when you NEED 1st downs!
Joshy probably being too smart and trying to over analyze shyt! That dude Cary Williams could not cover Lloyd, Period. Just toss it out there for 8 yards and games over!!! I hate when the coaches overthink simple situations. Charie Weiss knew how to end games on the ground and if the defense wanted to load up, he would go over the top, no matter the situation.
Case in point: the Deep ball on 3rd down and short to Bethel Johnson back in 03' vs the Seahawks. Worked to perfection and the defense never expected it.
Now we just roll over and put our tails between our legs when teams come storming back. I remember there was a time where if we had a lead in the 4th quarter, the game was all but over. Now we seem to never to be able to execute in these situations. I wonder if 07' and all those blowouts messed us up. We were never in a tight game until week 13! that year.
We used to love to get teams into 3rd and long and now for 3 years straight, we dont even get off the field on 3rd and 18's!!! Its like the only way we can win is jump out to a 31-10 lead and even that wouldnt be safe. We s*ck at the basic simple principles of football that we should excel at with a guy like B.B. at the helm. I would really like to see what HE would call for a defense in these clutch situations. I mean Im tired of having to blame a bum like M.Patricia for B.B.'s defense. Why doesnt anyone ask him after the game why he stays in cover 2 ALL DAY if he trusts his CB's or why diff. guys have started back there for 3 weeks or why M.Patricia cant call ONE blitz that works all game and is blitzing guys like Mayo who are not good blitzers! Why arent Spikes n Hightower Blitzing which is their strenghts.
B.B. was never a def. genius. He just had some great players all at once that made him look good. I mean he knows the game in and out, but overthinks too much. He doesnt want to get burned over the top, so he stays in cover 2 with no safety in the box and lets Rice run wild! When the Ravens need to pass, he is too scared to blitz and get beat over the top. All the while our CBs are getting BEAT OVER THE TOP ALL 2ns half and the safeties arent there to help, despite them being in a cover 2 shell??
Time to get a real D-Back coach and D Coordinator. Oh wait, its BEEN time! Probably too late now as B.B. is gonna retire for sure after this year cuz he is losing his MIND!
You just lost all credibility amigo.
