For me, the defining moment in the game was when I asked, "Why are they going for two?" with the answer, "Because they're concerned they can't hold a two touchdown lead against this team with a quarter to play."
And we were right.
I've actually said in a couple places that I blame D play calling most for the loss. That doesn't make JB good though. The DBs giving up way too much doesn't make missing open guys or bad passes any less bad. In short, plenty of bad to go around.
This is just a perfect example of a game when a game manager who does "OK" matched with bad somewhere else just isn't enough. Not a lot of good from anywhere. You can tell though what Reich's game plan was, and it just didn't work. He thought he could win tossing it a lot vs a very bad passing D, and he simply didn't get as much as he wanted/needed.
