Exactly, this wasn't the first time we've seen this. You look back since Gibbs came back, very similiar MO.

I think the idea is when you're winning, and you can pound it as well as we were...then you continue to do so...that being said, we let them get away. Gibbs can't coach against poor poor interceptions, but we can mix the offense up a little...its just too late this season to start doing so

No, I hear what you're saying. And yes, the pattern has been get the lead, try to burn the clock, and let the defense win it. But like Gibbs has been saying, we're a smashmouth football team. On a day when your top running back goes over a buck-fifty, you're supposed to win those.

But you can't when the D allows amost 250. That's not the offense's problem.

I just pray that we don't draft 5 fullbacks...

I say we draft Bobby Knight as a vice-president-associate-co-defensive coordinator and have him kick our team's ass into shape!

Re: How We Make The Playoffs

I'm so numb from all these losses...the idea behind liking football is that its something to be passionate about, but when all you ever get is that sinking feeling in your stomach, what's the point? I have a feeling this isn't going to be remedied for a long time...especially if some of you have your way, and we cut half the team/coaching staff

What about that guy from Mail Call on the history channel? He has a real gruff, army sounding voice and he's been in the military a hella long time. He could whip this bunch of sissies we have on our team into shape. I say we hire him as our strength coach and Chuck Norris as our defensive coordinator/associate head coach-defense, and Chuck could just teach all our guys how to roundhouse kick all our opponents into submission.

How many games in the NFL would 14 points win? Answer: Not many.
