Hail me, the harbinger of doom. In view of this game I lay the loss squarely on the shoulders of our coaches. Obviously Norv/Dave is afflicted by the same near fatal stupidity as the recent 'longtime' Griese supporters. Sorry to bust the party but one player does not change the entire team. We are going through growing pains with a new starting QB. Throwing away what has taken us to this point is stupidity. I will illustrate:Originally posted by StartingTailbak
Manning will not be able to exploit this defense. If Indy wins it will be by beating Miami at its own game, defense and ball control.
P.S. I don't see much chance of that happening
In the second quarter we went three and out on 3 straight passes. Our longest scoring drive was 2:52 and that was on the field goal in hurry up offense. What on earth are we doing? I don't think the players have anything to be ashamed of. Well, besides giving up a 91 yard touchdown drive.
Overall it was a good game. Yes any loss at this time of year is demoralizing but I really think that we can win out the rest of the schedule. We faced an excellent opponent and we played at their level for 22 minutes on offense.Hopefully this game will help us work out all the weaknesses.
Good news is that Indy, only scored 23. We cannot give teams the ball for 38 minutes and expect to win. Yeah, Marino did it but we don't have him. I am still working on the clone.
