That was some nice coverage by Bell.

We need to like ultra quadruple triple double cover Steve Smith.

That is what they are wanting, then D'A will explode on us. It's a catch 22, smith will eat us up.

Running game not working? I know, lets throw screen passes the rest of the game!!

I have seen better play calling in peewee league

those screen passes are essentially running the ball to get the safeties to come down since the running games isnt working if your gonna talk about the playcalling learn about football

Hoserman117
12-14-2008, 03:35 PM
Well duh, that's why it's a terrible play call! Give it to Pope or just throw a pass instead...

No...

Cutler has misfired on the majority of his last passes. As a coach you have to rely on your players, unfortunately Selvin didn't get it done. It's a good playcall.

If we throw a 20 yard dart and Jackson drops it, you guys aren't gonna complain it was a terrible call because we didn't execute, you're gonna get mad at Jackson. This was a good playcall, but Selvin couldn't execute.

We really need a stand here.

24-10 at half would be the ultimate crap.



It's over if it's that at half.. Our D will give up at least 14 in the 2nd half

You're tossing the ball back in shotgun to a 205 lb running back who's been injured for much of the season on 3rd and 7.

It was a bad call.

Good playcalling doesn't come from doing the obvious. Good playcalling is being unique and catching people off guard. If not for an insane play by the defender, that's 15 yards.

Serves Shanny right there. If you're going to run the ball w/ 17 seconds... Might as well take a knee.

SO... 20-10... Car scores after the half... 27-10.

GENTLEMEN... We might be watching a 3-game collapse. This could get ugly.

SHANNY IS A MORON for this call. The coaching costs us 4 points on the second drive, and they just handed CAR 3 points. Only Herm Edwards is worse in the 2-minute drill.

This game is OVER!

So glad Young was activated. What a man. HE gets tackled on third down, with wide open field ahead of him... He's tackled b/c some guy fell behind him and nearly touched him, but the wind knocked him over. THEN, he fumbles the game away!

Because the O Coordinator and Shanahan will not admit defeat of a play. That is why they also keep calling these stupid ass screen passes week after week.

It didn't work? Hell, let's try it again. What, no gain? Call it again.

I think this is going according to plan.


I *want* us to lose 2 of the last 3 games. That way we will finish 9-7 and have a very low Strength of Schedule due to the AFC West being terrible. We will still clinch our division, make the playoffs, but we'll be picking about 15th Overall in the NFL draft.

If we win extra games, we still get the 4th seed, but we lose draft position. There is nothing to gain from winning more then one of these last 3 games. We just have to win at least one.

I think it's pretty bad that you call timeout knowing you're just going to do a simple draw that EVERYONE knows you're going to do with 10 secs left, and utilize a player who has been injured much of the season in that situation.

Fumble or not who calls a timeout to call run in your own territory. The chances of getting in field goal range with run is so small, even so it would taken a lot of time off the clock. I really can`t think of what that could of done than get more reps for the running back.

The coaching was so pathetic that half... Shanny felt the scoreboard didn;t reflect just how bad it was, so he concocted that play to put his team in a hole.

DEN deserves everything that's coming. They're going to lose this game. BUF will play next week like it's the Superbowl... THEN, SD will blow us out and Rivers will laugh and prance along the sidelines. Looks like DEN wont get the shot to get blown out by the COLTS in the first round. Oh well.

The clock thing didnt even matter. Thats the second time we've totally screwed up a play before halftime. VS the browns that qb draw was also stupid, then tonight we just gave them 3 more points on a toss back at our own 10 yardline with 10 seconds left. The clock would have run out but we called a timeout to run that toss.

if you want to let the clock run out why call timeout right before it? Obiously he wanted to get into field goal range in which case why pitch it to the rb who failed on that 2 or 3 times in the past few drives? and theres only 17 seconds left so why run?

Stupid stupid stupid stupid

The clock ran down to 10 seconds by mistake, because Shanny called at timeout with 17 seconds left on the clock (?????).

The clock started again, maybe a half second late, when the running play began.

The fumble was recovered with 10 seconds left on the clock. Clock stops with change of posession. Two more seconds actually ran off the clock after the play was stopped.

Eight seconds left.....and you know the rest.

Some ways this game can be turned around

Need to blitz.

Need to run straight up the middle and stop trying to run to the outside.

Need to call a few screen passes for the RB.

Selvin needs to be benched...he ain't got it and this game is too important.

Shanny needs to stop being conservative with his play-calling.

The TE's need to be worked into the pass plays.

Smith should be double-teamed the rest of the game.

Actually, I think they should have just let time ran out after that pass to Graham. Go into the half down by 7.

Instead, they let a bunch of time burn, call timeout with just 10 seconds left, then do a toss-play to a back who hasn't played in nearly two months deep inside our own territory.

No matter how you slice it, it was a stupid turn of events and terrible game management.

Cutler needs to breathe and slow down, he is flustered you can see it. he needs to gain his composer. he does that and we have a big offensive second half. D needs to do some adjustments, we need to force turnovers. Have faith people we can win this IF the TEAM wants it. they have to come out with fire, and heart, miles and miles of heart!

like i say every week...some how..some way
we got to get BRANDON MARSHALL involved in the game..

brandon marshall acts like his hands are attached to his shoulders. i've NEVER seen him extend his arms and catch the ball with his hands. he always catches the ball with his body or has the ball bounce off his body and never touch his hands... it's getting annoying

You guys are a hoot.

They handoff to the RB deep in our end to let the clock run out to get to halftime, the RB happens to fumble, and it's the worst playcall you've ever seen?

I'm sorry, but I can think of much worse playcalls than that.

The point is, If your going to call that play...why call a TO at the end of the previous play??

Worst call ever? Heck, that wasn't even the worst call of the first half. That third-&-1 was even more pathetic.

We call for a pass play on third and one, line up in shotgun, do not even give the threat of a possible running play... NO RB behind the QB, all to run some gimmick pass play, where we do not even throw the ball fwd, and wind up losing 3 yards? It doesn't get worse than that.

I take back the optimism I showed at halftime.

We have a 0.0001% of winning this game at this point.

This game was over after DEN botched those 4 drives, after scoring on the first drive. Right there, we were going to need to do something special to win this game (like in ATL). When Shanny called a TO and handed the ball to Young, and he fumbled. That was the ball game.

Yu did see what CAR did to TB and their defense? As soon as the score went to 20-10, and CAR was gettign the ball... That was the game.

I figured we would lose this game. I'm just upset that our offense continues to struggle. I'm also upset that we basically handed CAR this game and I am really upset... given this was basically a house-money game... that Shanny has been SO CONSERVATIVE.

SO... now... we have to sweat next week. Lose to BUF and we get knocke dout of the playoffs.

AMEN. I was worried we would lose 2 of 3 (@ATL, @NYJ, @ CAR). We won two of those games. I can live with this loss, I just do not like the way we're losing.

Our pathetic play-calling cost us 7 points (we settled for a FG on one drive, and handed CAR a FG on another). The Cutler INT gave CAR another FG... and we keep stalling our own drives w/ mistakes. We should be winning this game like 24-17.

i'm not gonna lie...i see that ALOT with our offense

its the youth marshall said it all already ..they have one bad drive or they dont get a 3 and 1 and it just shatters their confidence thats gonna happen with a young offense

Cutler has ALL the time in the world, and yet NO ONE IS OPEN.

Playcalling sucks today...

Big surprise. No running game, so they can just drop everyone back.

Bleh they hit his arm.

I'm tired of this. This is why losing Hillis was huge.

haha the team is just going through the motions. They just want to go home. I wish we had a leader on this team that wouldn't stand for this giving up attitude.

Hillis and champ are sorely missed.


we are literally pissing this game away.

If we had Hillis right now I guarantee the score wouldn't be 27-10. He was such a big part of our offense. 6 TD's in 4 games D:

In fairness, they didn't start with Hillis in the backfield and manage to at least move the ball just fine.


They're not playcalling well. Plain and simple. And Cutler is playing poorly. Those last two throws were in the dirt.

Amen. I guess we don't have a Garcia-Bryant combo to expose CAR's weakness.

It also doesn't help that every NFL-caliber running back on our roster is on IR and we're stuck with practice squad and Detroit Lions rejects...

With the exception of that 64 yarder or whatever it was, run D has been pretty good.

Unfortunately, nothing else has.

i think once the team realizes that they dont wanna go into san diego for the west title we will play like a different team against the bills

Well, that reject was a 2nd round pick - BY US.

So what does that say about our talent scouting?

Good idea. Team is so young... up-&-down... sit them for this pathetic effort. Then again... coaches would have to give their headsets away too... they've been just as bad.

It is what it is... Team needs to be humiliated today. Maybe that will help next week. It's win or die... Everything on the line. If we lose to BUF... this team is truly a joke.

If we win... hopefully the good Cutler shows up against INDY. He almost had about 4 turnovers today.
