    Who else is tired of playing not to lose

    It might work against average or bad teams, but if we play a good team it is going to hurt us. The game plans these guys come up with are atrocious. When it's 3rd and 6, why do we throw the ball 2yards? We have got to start playing to win the game. Why did it take to the middle of the 4th quarter for us to get aggressive on defense?

    I'll be tired of it if we actually lose.

    It seems like we play this way most of the time in the 2nd half. So far it hasn't really come back to hurt us, but it did in the one point loss to the Texans.

    so far so good, but is going to bite us, and when it does, it's going to hurt bad.

    I'm not thrilled with our OC in general or his playcalling, i'd like to go down field more. Far too much dink and dunk. I know that's what Pennington excells at, but i'm confident he can do more. It's moreso his situational play calling that bothers me. Like when we had 3rd and 4 or whatever and we throw a 2 yard crossing route. Makes no sense. If you go back and examine this season you could find many situational play calls that leave you scratching your head. Also, no I don't like playing Wannyball. I don't mind close games if we win, but that don't mean i'm comfortable just sitting on a lead either.

    We didn't really get many plays on offense due to the long niner drives. I think its hard to say what we did wrong because there wasn't a lot of anything. But I agree we stop attacking when we get a lead.
