The D will RushYa, Like Moscow
It's funny they didn't show any replays of these "holds" and "penalties" of Incognito and Jake Long. Did you even see what happened to Incognito? The man was pulling right and the defender took him out below the knees . . . looked dirty as hell, though I'm not sure what the rules are regarding something like this. Not condoning Incognito retaliating . . . but he had every right to be pissed off. That is an injury waiting to happen. Jake held his own this week and that holding call was more BS. On this play it looked like the defender caught Jake off Balance and drove him back and Jake fell down, not sure if it was a bullrush, more of him getting unbalanced and falling back . . . however the defender could not jump over him and Tannehill got rid of the ball. The refs threw way too many flags out there today and ****ed up on the play they were most needed on (the fumble that was ruled down/forward prorgress). at everybody complaining about this call as it was declined and had no effect on the play . . . but whatever . . . sour grapes from last week I guess.
This Oline is going to continue to struggle when you don't have any players to stretch the field on a consistent basis. Defenses aren't scared of our passing game and until Tannehill consistently shows that he can beat you with the subpar tools that he has teams will continue to barrel down on the run game. I mean seriously . . . how many times did we throw the ball over 15 yards? 3 times? Maybe less? It was a poor performance all around.
And sending a message is one thing . . . but we obviously suffered with Reggie on the sidelines and as soon as Incognito sat down Nate Garner got blown up. Not sure I agree with the approach that was taken, sure it will appease fans who complain about everything . . . but it didn't do us any favors during the game.
