How our defense managed to not only keep us in games against 2 of the best teams in the league the past 2 weeks, but also put us in positions to win both games against them just to let the fucking Dolphins move up and down the field and keep us on our heels
It's psychological. There's no other logical explanation for constantly playing down to teams' level, while bringing your A game against the best in the league. For further explanation, see the Sixers.
This is probably the most-disgusting loss I can remember in a long time. Defense totally shit the bed. Offense still stuttering. Absolutely pathetic. I'm totally done with fucking Groh and Pedey needs to get whomever took his balls to give them back. And why? WHY are we not fucking running the ball!!? They're the WORST team against the run. They did nothing to stop our runs but yet, there was Wentz dropping back 50+ times. And they were up 2 scores in the 3rd quarter!!!
I'm disgusted with everything about this team right now. This is absolutely inexcusable.
I just can't figure out why Pederson just REFUSES to run the ball. 46 (?) passes and only 19 runs!!?? Only SEVEN in the 2nd half!! Keeping in mind they were up 28-14 in the 3rd quarter!!! And they averaged like 4.5 yards per rush!!?? And each week we hear him talk about how he's going to run the ball, blah blah blah...
I've been very vocal against Groh because he just plain sucks but Pedey is the final playcaller and has plenty of input in the gameplan. The gameplans have SUCKED all season and the playcalling has been HORRIBLE all season. Hell, going back to last season they sucked as well.
Wentz played better yesterday but still looks totally lost in the pocket. His footwork is a mess. Still missing easy throws. At this point, you have to look at coaching.
Then, defensively, the defense has played lights out until this game. How do you lay an egg defensively in that game??? They have ONE person to worry about on offense, you know, that receiver who caught a gazillion balls for about 900 yards...and do they ever one time double-team the guy? How many plays did we watch Mills or Darby or whomever was on the guy at the time watch as he caught a ball over their head?
Call a fucking TO on the trick play!! Why the hell are they looking confused then allowing the play to be run? That's on the players on the field as well as the coaching staff!!!! There was also a big 3rd down play late in the game where Mills (or Darby, can't remember) looked confused pre-snap. Throwing his hands in the air. Started to call TO then pulled his hands down. Still looked confused and almost called TO again. They allow the play to run and, you guessed it, a first down throw to that side.
How is this team so disfunctional??
I'm just so friggin' disgusted with this team right now. Then I have to listen to Pederson wax poetic about how good the Dolphins are!!?? I understand you have to be polite but he laid it on a bit thick.
Then he goes on to say they were prepared for the trick play. Really!!?? This is as bad as listening to Reid when he used to always say, "We have to be better...." and then never getting better. Same BS.
