I agree with most of the critisim in this thread, but I am going to dish out a bit more towards Mike Sherman. The play calling was absolutley unacceptable. We ran the same running play at least 5 times, and got the same results every time. When we were getting no push up the middle all game, we still tried to run up the middle on our own goal line. The 3rd and long play looked like a designed QB draw to me - terrible call. Our blocking scheme is also terrible. We are asking our OL on running plays to block straight ahead and move d-lineman left or right, and we arent creating blocking angles to create holes. That may work in college but not in the NFL. Sheesh call a trap, or block down and leave the pursuit guy unblocked, or call a counter or something to give your OL an advantage. Very poor play design imo. Philbin needs to intervene here and make Sherman adjust.
And there's the truth. Ban me know, but to the intellectuals, you're welcome, it was my pleasure.
After sleeping on the game, Jake Long still sucks and the OL is still the biggest problem on this football team.
Unreal that the Bills can rush four guys all night, not stack to stop the rushing game, and Miami can neither run nor protect the quarterback.
Now I am become coach, the destroyer of teams.
