I agree with most of your grades but D+ for BF? He has sucked at his job and we all know that but I have to give credit where credit it due. I thought the screen pass TD was a great call. He called another screen pass later that had about a mile of green grass in front of Leshun Williams that he took his eye off the ball and dropped. Another good call. In general, he stuck with the run for the most part of the game and why wouldn't he? It was working well.
I'm interested to hear your thoughts on what you thought was a poor day for him.
On 3rd and 3....on the opponents 40ish? And he goes for the pass?
When the run is working? And you know they'll blitz? Why not run it and see what you get? 4th and 1 near the 40...or better. I've seen enough missed conversions in the last 15 games either on the ground or in the air. And finally something is working at a high percentage? One result was Lachey's season. The other was a sack.
Granted, Taylor stuck at least one of those ensuing punts. Don't remember. This is in the first half. Either one extends the series with good probability of reaching FG range. I mean, in theory, it's a lot easier to score when you have the ball. Not always true with some of the Hawk defenses we've seen.
Also...this whole thread.
The fact that people are wondering if this score was run up to "save his job".
BTW...I don't believe that.
D+ is nearly passing grade.
Ok...so they won. And the run game showed life. And was used.
I'll change it to a C-.
No bell curve from me. Let's see about next week.
