It has been the same problem with JB all year.  He doesn't anticipate receivers getting open and it absolutely limits his passing game to his first read and the dump it to the hot guy.  That's been his passing prowess.  People blame the receivers getting open, but they do.  You can see it when you can see enough of the field.  Sometimes on replays.


The main WR couldn’t get open vs a 35 year old CB off the bench. And that’s the play the coach called on 2 3rd downs in a row instead of the 1 thing the offense can do. And the pass still hit him in the hands both times.

Wow. i’m rather surprised by the negativity. we havent played well and we’re right in there in a hostile environment against a really good team.   We’re in great shape for the 2nd half.

Gonna ignore the tackle by the helmet on the pick? #playersafety

To my eyes, neither of the last two holding calls on Kelly and Glowinski were legit. Kelly just fell on the DL who was going diving. Glowinski barely touched on the call against him.

I am REALLY sick of us getting screwed by the refs FAR more often than our opponents.

Nonsense.  Losing this game was because we couldn't pass the ball and nothing more.  This game is on Brissett and his receivers.  Not sure who is more to blame but man Brissett does not inspire me at all

And for all u people who say our wrs suck.  What has happened to the tight end involvement in this offence? People on this board were saying that we had the best tight end group in the NFL.  All of a sudden they can't get open or have become obsolete?!?!? Doesn't male sense... 

Brisett is no Luck.

you cant win games in 2019 averaging 150 passing yards a game .    you cant line up every single first down and run the ball then run the ball again , then try and pass it on 3rd and long .   play calling was so bad the whole game .

I refuse to think the entire staff just forgot how to call a game.... Ya think they are working within limitations maybe? Lol

No, the recovery sure wasn't.  And no, I'm not blaming the refs for this loss.  We get the ball back there and do what, run for ten more yards?  Who cares

We came up with it in the scrum. Recovery is the same with any other fumble. Doesn’t matter. Why wasn’t it even reviewed?

That and our supposedly good defense crumbled tonight Passing game blows.

That was more of an issue with how we schemed against Watson.  We played him with the spy, which the point was to have someone once Watson inevitably scrambles.  That means you're running a lot of man coverage and we didn't have the CB power to match Fuller and Hopkins.  Once the play breaks down and scramble rules are in effect, we just can't keep up.  The bombs were just well thrown prayers against inferior CBs.  Sigh...

Disagree.  We pounded the ball. The passing game failed.

I like Brissett, but I am starting to come to the realization that a lot of areas o. This team are good enough to have consistent success.... This team isn't holding Brissett back most weeks, and never when healthy ....it's obvious the healthy weakest links.

They didn't. It's that simple.  Brissett was go na throw for 50per ENT of his total yards the last thirty or so seconds?  Lol. Ok

We didn't play badly.  The passing game was beyond bad.  150 yards passing in today's football against a horrible passing D.

I have a feeling we will all be talking about the Peyton Manning 2006 Superbowl win as our greatest memory as they bring us our food tray at the old folks home!

Some of us are closer to that reality t

God no.  D played very good.  Running game pounded the rock.  U tell me that and I would thought we won the game.  The passing game was absolutely horrible. In Ballard we trust......not.

Hmm.

Let's try this again. This has LITERALLY nothing to do with Brissett playing badly. At all.

 

And, if you don't think the Texans got a massive advantage then you weren't paying attention.

I mean yea, those were two big plays...but there's plenty of others that JB missed as well.  Arguably more crucial plays.  I like JB, and he's our best option.  He's still an option that holds us back against teams like the Texans where they can score ultra quickly and our response is never less than a 6 minute drive.  We lean on the run and when it's not there, it hurts.

Absolutely crapped the bed. 

Worst

No imagination. Ran the same 4 running plays the entire game.

 

T.Y. drops 2 first downs......that didn't help.

 

But I cannot stress this enough.

Like ever

Not. 20 points given up by the D.  We pounded the rock which should have made it easy for the passing game. Simple,  Brissett cant find a phone in a phone booth!!! He is not the answer

JB played poorly, so pour it on to the people that think he stinks. Let me say this as bad as he played why was Hopkins wide open on 2 easy TD's?  Why is Frank Reich handing the ball off on every key down? TY Hilton should've caught that last deep ball too as well, no excuse for not making that play as JB threw a good ball on that deep pass. 

 

This might be the worst coaching job I have ever seen Reich do. Hand off after hand off. I mean Jeez! If you think JB isn't the man Frank, then put Chad Kelly in for peat sakes.

    • I certainly understand the Ingram intrigue but I'd have to go with Kerrigan here. His body has a lot more left in the tank than Ingram and his body is as healthy as can be due to Washington's dominant young d-line. Kerrigan could certainly give us 1-2 years of above average play! 
    • I remember it like yesterday, then read the reasons shortly after the selection, and they made sense.  Edge played at The U, which ran the stretch, and the Colts were running it as well.  Edge also had fewer miles on his legs, due to being in running back by committee for most of his career there.  Lastly, Edge was the better receiver and pass blocker.    I sometimes wonder if Ditka thought about making that insane offer to the Colts first? 
    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO. I think him scrambling will be extremely rare in the league. I just don't think he has the mobility and physical talent to do it while launching the ball downfield.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I think he can be a good productive QB in the right system(Shannahan system for example). I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him, though. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. Lance and Fields are. 
    • You may end up being right, but I hope that we add some talent here   As a HUGE Ohio State fan....  I WANT Lewis to step up....  He seemed to improve a bit, but, in my opinion there needs to be a talent influx on the DE   I have a recurring nightmare of Patrick M........ getting 30 seconds to throw...
    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
