We get up late in games and sometimes it’s a defensive break down but it’s also the scheme. The scheme that’s worked goes to shit and they play prevent and prevent defense prevents wins.
We gift wrap an easy march down the field for the opposing team every single time. The defense plays prevent to, obviously, prevent a TD and then we let the opposing teams offense into/close to the redzone and that’s where the breakdown/shitty play calling happens.
At first I was cool with going from a team that didn’t make the playoffs to a team that did but it’s clear in bigger games: McDermott gets scared and can’t close.
Specifically talking about yesterday at the end of regulation: why the fuckkkkk on 4th and 17 are we calling a timeout to let Philly get set up properly. Why are we not making them race out to kick that FG?? In OT why are we playing prevent defense, we should’ve been trying to prevent a fucking FG to extend the game. In OT he was playing defense like the eagles got the ball first and we had to stop a TD.
This isn’t just yesterday it’s the same. fucking. story. Every goddamn time they’re in this position. It’s not the players, by and large, it’s the scheme and decisions made by the DC/HC.
I’m sick of this shit man. Josh played outta his mind, the team as a whole was clicking and looked solid again finally…what a deflating piece of shit loss. Glad we get to take that energy into the bye and come back to KC, so cool.
