I did, until the toss sweep to Sproles made defensive coordinators think twice about their calls.

Third and longs are usually results of bad play calling.

No, third and long for the other team. I don't think we stopped one third and long conversion the entire first half.

On thinking about it, I guess it's better than last year where we couldn't stop a third and short conversion all season.

It seemed like every 3rd and long, GW didn't bring pressure he dropped the D back in coverage. It worked 1 time with the P.Rob pick. Rookie QB and 3rd and long, he should be bringing the house.

Poor tackling kills us on 3rd and long.
We give up waaaaay too many of them to opposing teams.

When you have 3rd and 15, and the defensive backs and safetys are giving 20 yards of cusion, it not hard to get a first down. We've been doing that in EVERY game and it drives me nuts!
