My 1st anti-coaching thread

I've been one that's preached 'trust the coaches' all season and that I trusted Gibbs judgment explicitly but today's loss and the last month in general I think it's time to really question some things..

Playcalling-Terrible decisions on offense with the plays.. Too many conservative playcalls. It seems like there are like 8 total plays in the playbook. When I can sit on my couch in Miami and call the plays before they happen an NFL coach can surely predict the same. Too conservative, playing not to lose=losing football. I'm convinced that this coaching staff is not the right group to get us back to the top. We have better offensive talent than teams scoring 24-31 pts a week but we are not getting it done. That's flat out coaching and execution but it all starts on the sidelines.

Defensive playcalling-Same thing, why did we stop blitzing? 3 & 4 man rushes against an offensive line that was allowing pressure all day when the blitz came? Other than Harris the DBs played exceptionally well for most of the game, why not let them give them a chance to make a play?

Roster decisions-Derrick Frost is awful, worst punter in the league.. Walt Harris has been terrible since October, why is he still playing?? WR depth was a problem coming out of training camp but how can we not have a WR on the practice squad instead of Jimmy Farris who was out of football last week and the #3 WR this week?

Very frustrated and with no #1 pick and up against the cap this offseason I can't say that I'm even looking forward to that anymore..

Portis is suppose to be making the plays L.T. did today. That is my biggest dissapointment from the coaching staff. They are obviously not using him wisely.

Re: My 1st anti-coaching thread

When a team gets the ball on the enemy 30 and can't get their kicker close enough to win the game, the playcalling is officially shit.

Yes, the execution was poor, but the calls were limp wristed too.

Re: My 1st anti-coaching thread

It's not like it's all that different from Gibbs' first run as coach. I mean you knew when they were going to go with the Jumbo offense, or run the counter-tre, or do a bootleg. Not the most extensive playbook, but with a lot of motion and different formations. The key is to execute it well enough that even if they know it's coming they can't stop it. Like Stockton-Malone's pick-and roll

I was talking about in obvious passing situations.. Williams stopped coming after Brees which allowed him to convert some 3rd and longs..

Re: My 1st anti-coaching thread

So, I suppose what the key to us winning is to get rid of this coaching staff after two years and once again jump back on the coaching carousel? As long as we keep doing that, this franchise will never have another winning team.

Re: My 1st anti-coaching thread

TAFKAS, it's a different NFL and he cant hold all the talent he had before thanks to the salary cap. There was a time when we had a dominant O line which we simply don't have anymore. I think Gibbs needs to learn to adapt, because whats happening now obviously isn't working.

Re: My 1st anti-coaching thread

I am not ready to say Gibbs should call it quits. I'm taking a wait and see approach. If, after we add a wideout and defensive end in the offseason we still lose, then I'll be ready to turn on Gibbs. Until then, I withhold any comments about the coaching staff.

You're right, it is much harder. But the team is making efforts to adapt. I mean case in point, the shotgun

You are right, it is kind of weird to be acting so negatively when we are loosing these games so closely. Redskins could easly be 9-2 team, just as easy as they could be a 2-9 team.

Re: My 1st anti-coaching thread

It's time for the youth movement on the coaching staff. As much as we all love Joe Gibbs, at this point in his return, he has the exact same record as Steve Spurrier had after 27 games. And Gregg Williams is showing why his stint was so short in Buffalo: he couldn't hold the lead. Let's start anew next year.
We should have two goals for the rest of the season: beat Dallas and see what J. Campbell can do. It can't hurt at this point, when we're a less-than-average team.

Re: My 1st anti-coaching thread

Wow, same record as Steve? Now that is pathetic...

Acutally Gibbs and Steve have some things in common, they both start out very quickly. Didn't Spurrier have a 3 -1 start, and the one loss was very close to a win?
