The Jags lighting up the D, sans Shazier, for 45 points, to me, is a little more concerning. And by a little, I mean WAAAAAAY more concerning.



Well ya, that is concerning. Never said it wasn’t.

We quite possibly don’t face the Jags in the divisional round though if we can convert a 4th and 1.

Are you going to feel better if the D looks great in a 13-10 loss that could have been won had we not run a toss sweep on 4th & inches?

Likely not.

Just because one issue can be considered a “bigger issue” doesn’t mean the other isn’t an issue or should be dismisssd.

And here is another (large) point you are missing.

The defense come playoff time is what it is. Now one could argue the scheme employed the year prior in the AFCCG was asinine but at the end of the day there is only so much you can do schematically to hide a unit with warts.

Playcalling on the other hand is absolutely within your control.

So while the defense getting gashed is a bigger problem, it is also a problem that will need new personnel to fix. That can’t be done in game.

Dumb playcallingn that sub-optimizes your chances of success is correctable but neglected.

A “little thing” with big ramifications.

Are you any less dead if it takes you a day to bleed out vs a couple minutes?

Fixing the little things matters too and is actually he “low hanging fruit”. Arguing the degree of the various problem is pointless minutiae

Listen, this might sound arrogant, but if I was standing next to Tomlin in that game against the Jags, and had a voice he'd listen to, this is what would have happened;

If Todd and Ben said they wanted to run a toss sweep on the 1st 4th and inches I would have said the following; "I don't know what bullshit con game you two are trying to run on the fans but Ben you need to stick your big head up Pouncey's ass and keep this drive alive." If they overruled me and instead failed on their idiotic toss sweep call to Bell, then on the SECOND 4th down situation after the blocked punt, I would have begged Tomlin to let Landry Jones go in and fall forward two inches so we can potentially tie the game late and send that overachieving loser Blake Bortles into a panic.[i][/i]

On the onside kick attempt, I would have screamed at Tomlin that that was the biggest mistake he's ever made in his career. After losing the game and getting fired the next day, I could have at least gotten some sleep these past 3 months.

Not a horrible schedule...except where it counts. We get the Pats after going out west?

Good! All these annoying fans that want Barkley are silly. Gotta try to replace Eli.

My friends think he has 2-3 good years left. He’s out of his mind....while they’re at it, please go ahead and sign that cancer Dez to play with Odell. Please please please!
