Ok I will say I was wrong about TY lol. He is playing a ton. These deep throws are going to open up the run game.

Hopefully we'll spend most of the 4th Quarter gashing them with the run, and protecting a large lead.

He'll probably start playing less snaps for a bit, but his presence has definitely been felt.  He just energizes the offense and stretches the coverage.

We are still giving up way too many easy short passes that the Texans are getting 5 and 6 yards on.

It's by design at this point ...and it's absolutely freaking dumb.  They young guys catch on sooner argument..... Uh....do we not have enough guys in their second and third years to take this thing to the next level?  IS there another level of play calls and schemes Flus?!?

Mills is just hitting the short routes.  Coverage has not been terrible this drive.

We have been giving them 5 yards whenever they want, I wouldn't say it's terrible but it is bad how easy we are letting a rookie QB march down the field.

I agree I hate it, we stopped them here, almost a pick.

They’re taking away the deep threats. You force them to make more plays that are shorter which in turns allows for more plays which means more opportunities for them to mess it up or we get a sack/TO.

Hard to even call it a scheme, it's a "let them have points and hope Blackmon or Leonard force a fumble" scheme if anything.

This is exactly right. Every time these players talk it’s about how they didn’t get enough turnovers. Just play good defense. Turnovers are nice but you can’t rely on them.

Bingo.  And they're absolutely cool with 11 play drives ending in FGs.  That last drive was a win across the board for the team and staff.  They won't rip guys because that's what the D is supposed to do.  Now, we fans hate it u less there's a big play or a misfire by the O.... But as long as we win, who cares.  

My god. Campbell is out one catch and he's done.

True in the middle of the field.  lbs play 15 yards off the line in coverage is a recipe for good gains.

They even blitzed and it was easily picked up.

    • I don’t think Shaw is viewed as a potential NFL HC anymore.    You can’t introduce Shaw to a fan base.   Off the top of my head, Shaw’s last 4 years are 4-8, 4-2, (Covid) 3-9 and 3-9.    That’s not going to move the needle.    Shaw is a college coach.   A molder of young men and their lives.   He’s not a good enough HC to handle an NFL locker room.    For a coach whose entire career has been on the offensive side of the ball he runs an offense that is not very sophisticated.   It’s a hard offense to watch.   You wouldn’t  think his background was all offense.      He’s more likely to work for the NFL Network or ESPN if he doesn’t find another college job.      One last thing….    Shaw is close with Luck but is very happy that Luck has retired and moved in.    I’m not sure he’d even try to talk him into a comeback.   Maybe.   But I doubt it. 
    • You're making assumptions, and/or putting words in my mouth.  Never said Ifeadi was better than Yannick. Never....  I said Yannick sucks vs the run... and shouldn't play early downs (run downs) or on short yardage downs.    So let's look at basic data before this week...                   snaps   sacks   sacks/snap%  pressures  press/snap%  tackles   tackle/snap    missed tackle % Yannick    517       6.5          1.3%           19                  3.7%            21           4.0%                8.7% Ifeadi       196       2.5          1.3%            6                   3.1%            10           5.1%                 0%   So... you'll see above... not a huge difference in sack or pressure %... But Ifeadi is noticeably better vs the run and better in missed tackles...   So the point it..... Ifeadi should be playing more early downs, when the chance is greater to see runs...  If you want to see Dayo's comps, let me know. He's been used differently, but his stats obviously show he's better than the run...    Injury (Paye and Lewis) have hurt. We'd look different with Paye, and very different with both. 
    • If Wentz or Sam was playing it wouldn't be there fault at alll but because it is Matt, she just blames Matt. Boooooo.
    • Taylor’s fall off has been all year until the last three weeks.  That has nothing to do with the QB.  Again saying Ryan was the cause of the lines problems was flat out wrong.  The line has been bad rather Ryan was in there or not and in areas beyond pass protection.  Yes the line did play better tonight and frankly has played better since Saturday came in, particularly in run blocking.  That doesn’t change the fact that your statement that Ryan caused the lines problems was incorrect.
