Year after year the Boys lose games in the final minutes.Why is this?
In most cases, like yesterday, it is piss poor clock management laying the blame on the head coach.
Like yesterday cant get a first down to run out the clock when a game can be put into the W column.
They let the other team hang around, playing not to lose. If they were to attack from the get go, and build up a big lead, the other team wouldn't have a chance to come back and win.
The team doesn't know how to win. It's that simple
Here we go again.
No running game, poor defense.
Typically it's because we have less points than our opponents
The pressure gets to them and they choke.
They commit untimely penalties (ie Alex Barron and Tyron Smith).
At least Smith is a good player though. Barron was a matador.
Snake bit or stupid coaching. Against Denver they had a LB on Welker on the critical 2nd and goal from the 14 at the end of the game. This week, they have single coverage on Megatron with 30 seconds left in the game. Stupid is, stupid does!
oh, you don't say. Why did I never think of that.
We've tried new ST coaches. Defensive coordinators.
There is one more fire to make.
There was piss poor clock management?
The main reason why we lose so many close games is because of Garrett and his inexperience as a coach.
First of all, when we have a small lead, he will start to chew time off the clock by calling running plays.
This allows the other team to gain momentum and mount a comeback. Now because we allowed them to get back into the game, this gives them the momentum. Thus, everything starts to unravel during crunch time. Garrett starts to panic because he doesn't know what to do. He thus makes bad decisions like icing the kicker, bad clock management, etc. Therefore we end up losing.
Garrett is the main reason why we lose close games. W haven't gotten blown out this year by anyone. Which means that coaching is the issue on why we can't close the close games like were supposed to.
Idiot head coach
A lot of factors go into these last second one point losses, but there is always a coaches decision that can be questioned. You can't help but wonder if Garrett is the problem. I keep hoping for a light bulb to come on for him as far as situational football. I'm still holding out hope that it can happen this season.
