Nah , Kowboy, I focused on reviewing the last 4 mins, and the last 4 plays exclusively. After not much thot, it was apparent this was a coaching loss. True, JH is two yrs new, and roman is new as OC in NFL. What hit me the hardest...and this was several weeks later, was that neither HC nor OC had a play for first down on the 9
yd. line. Neither one. sheesh. As great as our fantastic comeback was after the outage, it was those final four plays, all literally pulled out of somebody's bum, and no idea what to call 4 TIMES inside the 10...for the SB win. Ouch. And that is pretty much all I took away from that game.
Lesson? OC calls plays during the week, consulting with HC. Coach H, Kap and OC make the game plan and gameday, Coach H calls the plays. That would stop, once and for all , this abnormal nuttiness of not getting the frigging plays in on time, and moreso, make Coach H more Walsh like...the guy who had a play for any situation, any time, any where
. For my money, from here on out, until Kap is ready to call his own plays with the HC, I think Coach H should be our playcaller. If the screwups were just this one time, no. But Offensive playcalling this past yr was, well, really offensive. Kap, plus the OL, made a lot of plays, and they weren't in the book. But when it counted, bottom line....I want my HC to be calling the plays. IT IS , HIS team, not roman's.
Oh, yes, I did learn one other thing. If you want to stop the 3rd down jumpball catches on the first down marker, you have to have an answer for Anquan. Well , we did. We bought him.
