    Not that it matters much anymore, we got pulverized and that's really all there is to it. But try to help me understand these key moments in the game;


    1. Non Face Mask Call

    So this really wasn't a key play since we went deep successfully to James Jones anyway, but please help me understand this. The ref SAW the facemask, then picked up the flag and explained the contact was incidental? Since when are there incidental face masks??? I was under the impression it's 15 regardless of it being incidental or not.


    2. Why did we stop running the ball?

    So when we were tied, we abandoned the run. We were down by 3 and we abandoned the run. WHY? Harris was averaging over 4.5 yards per carry in this game. I absolutely don't understand why we felt it was necessary with the game still in reach to completely stop trying to run.


    3. Down my 2 scores and we punt..

    It was this moment that absolutely made me sick to my stomach, and had me thinking that McCarthy has no cajones in this game. We're down by two touchdowns with 11 minutes to go in the 4th quarter. We need 4 yards for a first down, and we're at our own 45, or close to it.... and we PUNT?

    To this point we haven't been able to stop their offense, time is running down and down by 2 TD's we don't let the best QB in the NFL try and pick up 4 yards? I just about turned the game off right then and there.

    No answer to no running...One thing was brought up==We were in no huddle and maybe Harris didnt know it..But maybe the packages they wanted for it, Harris just is not in that package..But he was doing good, he should have been there....But I was okay with it..


    The punting I am not okay with...Should have went for it..Who knows---- we may have driven for a score instead of letting them run it for 6 or 7 mins to go up by 3 tds

    These 2 are just an example of the very questionable play-calling by MM throughout the season. He should NOT be the one calling the plays. Unfortunately, as another poster mentioned in another thread, there is an annoying stubbornness bordering on arrogance in MM. He talks the talks about taking the blame, but as far as I can see he doesn't walk the walk. He needs to take a step back and look at it all, and he needs to hear some outside, independent criticisms of his coaching and learn from them.

    Any HC can say that he takes the responsibility for the loss, etc. etc., but the best ones actually find ways to re-evaluate themselves and make changes.

    1. Zebra screws.
    2. Because Clements is a former QB coach, and QB coaches don't remind anyone to run the ball. Plus we were down and apparently in 2 minute score at all costs mode.
    3. I gave up on that game long before this happened.

    I was yelling at McCarthy because we had not stopped them ONCE all game pretty much. We get an easy opportunity to extend the drive and we would have made it a 1 TD game.

    Honk if you think Harris could have picked it up. Or a quickscreen.
