Anytime you have a chance to go for a two minute drill before half and you pull a Nolan you should have your blood leeched out of your p***y body.
Its preseason and we were up and shutting them out. I am sure it was more of a move to protect the players than anything. No reason to have Alex force the issue screw up and bruise his ego early. Why force the issue? For what? A preseason game? Save the good stuff for the regular season and dont reveal your hand till you have to.
That doesn't really refute anything I said. Can someone else give me any good reasons that makes justifiable sense? Because this post did none of that.
1) We were shutting them out.
2) Protect the players.
3) Force the issue
3a) Bruise his ego
4) Save the good stuff for the Regular Season
1) Who cares? It's preseason against the Denver Broncos with Kyle Orton making his best JTO impression.
2) These guys are NFL players, they are used to the contact, and one extra drive won't do s**t to them IMO.
3) Forcing the issue is trying to do a Hail Mary three downs straight and then faking a punt on your own 10. What we did was called being Straight up PUS**IES.
3a) I think going through these past couple of years + getting booed in Training Camp has already shown Alex that he can handle people talking s**t about him.
4) Ugh. There's no such thing as enough practice. There's gotta be some second-rate plays we can run with easy routes which we'd never really use to get more practice for our players.
Running the clock out with 1:41 was worthless and was the number 1 reason I totally disliked our performance offensively tonight. If we're going to continue being the team on the field who will never take any chances, then we will be the team to continually lose.
I think you are overreacting here. Again its preseason, it doesnt count. Not only that but we won the game. We also were in scoring position to end the game. I`m sorry but I just dont get your gripe. We had 1:37 and we were on the 11 yard line. What do you expect?
That was the last series for (most of) the first stringers so I think Mike Sing wanted to stick with rushing the ball as if it were the 4th quarter - late in the game - and run out the clock, protect the lead and the win. Coffee and the O-line were effective. 4 straight rushes - 26 yards. Exactly what Sing expects to see in order to close out games.
