    Re: Rate Doug Nussmeier at the halfway point

    If AJ would have laid the ball out there instead of under throwing the ball as he does a lot, we would not be in that situation.

    I think he's done a pretty could job, but I do think he's abandoned the run too much in the last two games. We do pretty could at some smash mouth stuff.

    Same goes for the long pass for Coop. That was a 90 yard TD pass if AJ hits him in stride.

    I didn't mind the PA's, but most of the passes in the 2nd half on 1st down they were looking for the pass. Then after we'd throw it incomplete they would load the box for 2nd, the bring the house on 3rd and long. We played right into their hands and made aTm's DC look like a genius tonight.

    Agreed. The run on 1st down was wide open in the 2nd half, we just refused to take advantage of it. I wished I would have DVR'd the game tonight to see how many times we threw on 1st and what our success rate was.

    Well, at least I'm consistent. I thought we didn't go vertical enough with CJM. We have the WR's for the vertical game, it's just getting the ball there in stride.

    Re: Rate Doug Nussmeier at the halfway point

    I really hate to play general after the war, but I agree with everyone that we should have ran the ball four times on our last possession. I would like to say that CDN called a good enough game for us to win, but we missed some critical throws.

    I disagree. A well timed pass would have been perfect on the drive, but 1st down was not the appropriate time. We should have run it a couple of times, then pulled a PA pass on 3rd down depending on the postion of the ball. However, that's all second guessing at this point, and it really doesn't accomplish jack squat.

    I wonder what would've happened had AJ scrambled to the left instead of cutting back towards the center of the field on the last drive. Looked open to the left!

    I thought that was where he was headed.

    We were only seven yards out, we probably score on four run plays.

    As much as aTm was overplaying it on the left, I was thinking he might pull up and throw it back across the field the either Yeldon or the TE. It would have been open, but as I said in another thread, it looked like AJ predetermined who he was going to before the ball was even snapped.

    I don't disagree that we should have run the ball, I'm saying a well timed pass would have been just as effective, problem is we were too predictable. Again, all hindsight at this point.
