No matter which way we play it, the detractors will say we should have done the opposite...

 

That's why a coach needs to understand the flow of the game. It's really not that hard. If you are running the ball well then you continue to run the ball and eat clock. if you're stuffed all game then you add some RB and WR bubble screens in. Any coach paying attention to the game knows what needs to be done to keep the clock moving. Too often they get stubborn and start making boneheaded calls.

Agree, but thats really on the Quality Control coach, not just the OC.  The OC follows the game plan unless the QC coach gives him the info that tells him otherwise.  Really.  I've read Pat Kirwan's book "Take you eye off the Ball, version 2.0.  Early in his career, PK was a QC coach and did just that.

    • I think we're still capable of my original prediction IF coaching/game-plan/game-prep/scheme/playcalling gets better. IMO, Reich had his 2019 Miami moment in game 1. Let's see how he responds.
    • Yeah, I don't think it's Ballard either, I was merely mentioning it as a possibility that the players may be the problem that he drafted for us, then I quickly dismissed it. I don't have inside access to the team, but I think a logical conclusion would be that a coach (or combination of coaches), of Reich, Eberflus, and Sirriani aren't using the players Ballard drafted properly to their maximum effectiveness. At this point, I don't believe it's just a lack of talent. Although the secondary isn't perfect, you have to do much better than what you did Vs Brees and Minshew on a regular basis.   If we continue to allow QBs to put up numbers like Brees and Minshew did, then it may be Ballard's fault for signing and drafting the wrong guys. Until we see a bigger sample size though, I'm going to put it on the coaches instead. Ballard has earned the benefit of the doubt as of now from that 2018 class and hitting on plenty of other picks.   Just going to guess right now this is on coaching and the proper adjustments need to be made. If it continues to happen the rest of the year, then some changes need to be made on the coaching staff. The completion % this secondary allows isn't normal. In fact, it's closer to historic in a bad way. A big step forward would be to shut the Vikings pass offense down tomorrow.
    • We did this IIRC a few months ago. I know I ranked all 32, and even some past 32. Somewhere, some thread,,,, lol
    • Ballard is far and away the least of the problems. Drafting Taylor will now prove to be a smart move by Ballard.    I expect Ballard to push more towards building the DL beyond Buckner.   An amazing DL can make the secondary look great.
    • I had us finishing 10-6/11-5 with a balanced offense and solid run game and an improved defense. My perception has definitely changed. Mack is out for the year, the pass defense seems just as bad as last year, no faith in the coaching as of now. I need to see a win this week before I have any faith in this team possibly making the playoffs.   At this point, something's wrong with this team. It's either the players Ballard is signing and drafting (don't think it is at this point), or it's poor coaching by Reich and Eberflus (which I do believe at this point). In any case, the problem needs to be indentified and fixed quickly, or this could be a rough year.
