I put the blame 1st on 11.
That first TD catch by Morgan that went ob was 11s fault for throwing too high, the drop by Norris in the EZ was also 11s fault for throwing too high, he over threw Ginn who was ahead of the DB and on a clear run for the EZ.
Towards the end of the came you can see Morgan getting on smith for throwing high and getting them killed.
Coaching would be the next group I get onto.
Why in the hell do you call a to on the 2nd play of the game?
Next would be the secondary. Over aggressiveness killed em.
Pass rush. What pass rush?
I really hope today's game gets all the stupidness out of the team so we can go on and do well.
2nd play of the game was headset issue. Duh.
Smith threw it to the place where only the Receiver(Morgan could get it.) the pass to Norris was high, but Norris could have back up and caught the frigging thing w/o leaving his feet. Morgan was shoved out which is legal but he's got to keep his legs down. Not Punt as he's getting the completion.
And apparently you didn't watch the game with a reasonable eye mr. "Keep in mind I've been an alex supporter and I'm not happy at all." I mean WTF are you? Never seen you say one way or the other. But we have to "Keep in mind..." get real.
They basically owned us because we were not as prepared as they were. Can't really blame our coaching on that since they had some help. I don't mean you can't be unhappy with Coaching, cause Raye and Sing obviously should have thrown the Playbook away for this game and stayed conservative in the 1st half. Look at the ToP in the 1st half. It was so lopsided in our favor that we could have kept them off the field with a lot of personnel changes in the backfield. Instead. WB was on the sidelines, Dixon was on the sidelines and Frank and Norris played the entire half. Hardly ran the ball and it killed us.
I seriously wish people would stop the blame game where Smith is concerned. Dude did as well as one should expect given the issues in this game. He played pretty well the entire 1st half. Soon as they got momentum and took advantage of our Rookies on the Line (And Snyder) we were done.
