Fire Bill Stewart !!!
I don't think that I have ever really said those words about a coach before. I know that I have never said them 3 games into a season with a "new" coach. However, this is just plain ridiculous.
The play calling is horrendous. The times that it is really bad is on 3rd down and short and on the 4th down call. Coach, do you and your staff not have the game stats or were you not watching the game ?
The team was having HUGE success on the perimeter. When you ran on the outside OR spread it open with the qb draw, the yardage was there. I was happy to see you run the ball. It shows great in the rush stats.
White had 146 yards
Divine had 133 yards
Their avg. were good (7.7 and 5.1). Once again, they would have been much higher if you did not run them up the middle. Yet still, you did not get them both on the outside and run the true option with those two on the perimeter. Why ??? Can someone explain it to me ???
I knew that our D may have some trouble this year, but I thought our Offense would roll and we would outscore them. Our D did look rough the first 10 mins BUT they played great the last 50 mins.
There is no way with the group of offense players that we have that we should have put up 3 points and then 14 points respectively in back-back games. NO WAY.
I am not even sure what the last two minute time management deal was. In a sense, the last 20 seconds, I could understand, you did not want them to get the ball back. HOWEVER, we should have scored or had the opportunity to score in the last two minutes.
There is not other word to describe it, unless we want to go back to last week's post: pathetic. Maybe we could add disgrace in there .... I don't know.
Sorry for the rant and the slam. This is just disappointing ... there that is another one word answer and the last.
As Jim Rome would say, "I Am Out"
