    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    It's not just last night though. We didn't complain when we had a boring offense and were winning, but let's be honest, we were all a bit worried. The Alex Smith thing was working....somehow. Now we have no excuse, we have to change and we just dont. I understand it's difficult to put a new guy in and change your entire philosophy but we have to try. The alternative is a guaranteed loss. Trying to do what we were doing with different players in a situation that was lucky to succeed in the first place. Its gonna be a loss. Throw contested balls. That's all I ask. See if our guy comes down with it. Maybe there's a PI, they call them all the time these days. I've watched enough, we just won't even try, its uninspiring and that's on playcalling.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Good job answering the Kaepernick questions in his presser, seriously. They're basically loaded questions to make us look even worse, but we're no more obligated than anyone else to feel like we should sign him, even with the QB injuries. We all know why those questions are being asked, and Jay gave an answer that made sense. Three times. Please stop pressuring us guys, we've got enough to deal with. Like injuries. Good lord, Jay must have had a nervous grin while rattling off those injuries. And casually explaining how to move around the o line on top of the QB problem like its "just football". Nah, our situation is unusual and almost impossible to overcome. So props to Jay for handling it media wise, and giving a sensical approach to the situation. But that's where my Jay praise ends. Now, what is this about the QB coach calling plays? Whatever, I dont care who it is, I dont care how injured the team is, the offense isn't just bad because we're hurt, it's bad because it barely even tries. He mentions Peterson didn't get a lot of touches because the run wasnt working and the 2 minute deal is Thompsons job. Ok, then why didn't you do something else. TRY something else. Oh, he did a couple ridiculous, embarrassing, swinging gate level stupid trick plays. That was it for me. Get someone else calling these plays. We are in love with the wide open wr 5 yards underneath, which is exactly what the opposing defense wants us to do which they will tackle which will lead the drive into a punt because we dont do ANYTHING ELSE. Game after game. That has to change. Drop back and launch the ****ing football down the field. They tried it ONCE to docston last night and that was probably Sanchez going off script and good for him. He's been on normal football teams. He probably got scolded for it. We are scared to play aggressively. I'm done. If it means firing jay so be it. Some fans admitted it weeks ago and it's about time Jay does as well: that winning streak, that "winning formula" of defense and running was ****ing luck. The only thing Alex Smith did (love ya buddy, hope you get healthy quick) was not turn the ball over. He didn't do anything. The team basically won without a QB. They won with a robot at QB programmed to not take chances. What better reason do we need now, on our THIRD QB to take some dang chances. Jay is STILL talking about how Sanchez should protect the ball better....WHO THE HELL CARES? Go out fighting damnit. Save me with this "we're still in it" bull****. It's true we are, but the only way we're winning anything for the rest of the season is a bunch of low percentage passes that land in our favor. Maybe some PIs are called maybe we actually score some ****ing points. This "play defense and run the ball" thing is done, Jay even said it was done, that was his explanation for APs lack of touches, so why in the hell do you keep trying it???? Watching last night's offense was it for me. That one shot to docston gave me hope that "screw it were goin out swinging". But no, we didn't, and Jay makes it sound as if we're going to stay with this horribly boring approach on offense. "We have weapons"....YOU DONT USE THEM. Unless crowder is wide open on a cross or reed jukes a guy we just refuse to throw the ball to anyone. I think Jay instilled that line of thinking and it's just not going to work and it just has to change. If we are still in contention then we have to change our approach offensively. We're a wild card(no pun intended) with our injuries and we should be coming out with something different, and I don't mean dumbass trick plays. I dont think we will change offensively, and I dont want to see it again next year.
  3. I usually don't get like this but I am just full on pissed right now. I ignore the hate on playcalling because hey football is hard and we were winning. Enough though. We play offense like scared little ****es. I'm firmly in the fire jay or at least change the man calling plays side. It's an automatic loss, it's like not even trying. Your team is injured all to hell and your response is dumbass slow developing trick plays? JUST LAUNCH THE ****ING BALL DOWN THE FIELD. DOCSTON CAN JUMP. Just finally over it. I can't watch this boring, uninspired offense anymore. It wasnt fun when we were winning and its just sad now.
  4. Like the 10th time I've said it this season, but can we PLEASE take low percentage shots down the field. Just ****ing do it. They did it ONCE today, most teams do it multiple times a game with a LEAD. Just do it. Or run Thompson into a wall and have him drop the ball, I mean jesus tap dancing christ
  5. Yeah good time to bring up the rueben foster ****, good timing
  6. That 2pt play is just punking us. Were bottom of the league bad now, and that's not just on the qb situation, this has been embarrassing D, scheme wise.
  7. They're basically laughing at us. These are automatic yards, they aren't even sweating. That is a scheme problem
  8. I guess there's something funny about him holding that ball on his butt
  9. Norman thinks he's gonna get a pick every play and actually puts himself OUT of position to try it. I'm done.

    I said going in, if the cowboys beat the saints they deserve this division. It's there for the taking. But it isn't taken yet. Skins are right there, even with a loss this Monday. Gonna be a hell of a home stretch. And when it comes to playoffs, I dont see any NFC east team posing much of a threat, even with this cowboys win tonight. Gotta credit the cowboys defense, but that was the last time the saints are going to come out flat offensively this season. Of course it was against the cowboys, of course we have to listen to a cowboys praise week once again, but it will boil down to the same thing it always does: the cowboys are ok but not great. Just a few weeks ago, cowboys fans were throwing in the towel mostly because they didn't like Dak. Dak is still doing those things they hated, despite the couple of great scrambles he has per game, he has terrible pocket awareness, and loses a play. Their team has awful, untimely penalties. So whoever takes the NFC east, good luck. I just hope it's my team so they have a chance, but even if I was an outsider, I couldn't believe in this Dallas team. Their young pieces and their defense might be scary going forward, but I just couldn't trust that qb. I dont care if he ran in the endzone on us, we also stripped him for a td in his endzone in that other game. Dallas fans be weary. That dak guy is your qb and I wouldn't trust that for a second. Pay him. Go ahead. Brag that he just beat drew brees. .. Nah Dak still looked very...dak. somewhere between Russell Wilson and rg3. More like a scared version of Russell Wilson. Super proud when he scrambles for a big gain, but looks lost in the pocket otherwise. Roll of the dice with that guy. Potential big plays while sacrificing consistency. Wish we could play them a third time :[ maybe we will

    See how pissee mccarthy is about this timeout Jay couldn't give a **** lol
  12. Celebrate now cowboys. Enjoy it. You ain't doing **** this year. Have fun with the saints.
  13. Both those cooper touchdowns were routine passes, Dallas wasn't going for a score with either of them. F minus to the secondary/safety play. You cannot give up 14 points on 2 routine catches
  14. I see were still calling timeouts for no ****ing reason
