Re: the dumbest play call

I must say I was impressed with the fact that we went for it of 4th down
That tells me that they are at least willing to put it all out there and do what it takes to get the job done

And yes there were some plays I thought they could have called better but blame can’t fall solely on the play calling because the players we not executing well

They cut Palko to add Mitchell to the roster because of Fujitas injury. He'll be picked back up if he clears waivers.

My post was not "the one play that lost the game". I was pointing out what I thought was the bonehead call of the day, and after further review, it was a bonehead call.

F'ING EXACTLY!!! Teams have played Cover 2 on us multiple times this year and we were too dry. Everyone and their grandma knows that TE's, running the ball, and the middle of the field is the key to beating the Cover 2. Instead, Payton wants to be soooo much of an Offensive genius, he calls plays for outside routes (which end up as INT's) and never runs the ball with Deuce inside. Then at the end of the game Eric Johnson is moving us downfeild, WTF U THINK HE WOULDVE DONE THE WHOLE GAME?! like whoooa

Re: the dumbest play call

it wasn't the play call that was as horrible as the decision to throw it deep, there was a couple of underneath routes, from where i was sitting the one over the middle was more open than Patten was.
