bighurt Posted September 12, 2011 Share Posted September 12, 2011 (edited) After reviewing the game again, I saw that this game was decided by 3 Offensive turnovers and 3 defensive missed tackles. In the 1st or 2nd Qt. on offense Matt's INT, and then Turners fumble killed two promising drives where we were in scoring position. Then Weatherspoon missed tackle resulted in a TD. The sum of those plays at the least are a 10 point swing (2 FGs for us and if the defense held at the 35 yard line a FG for them). Then we had a rough 3rd qt. We had back 2 back missed tackles both by Robinson on the same drive that resulted a first down and TD. After that the next offense series Matt's fumble results in a TD. (That is another 14 point swing.) I know we can talk about the playcalling, missed INTs by Decoud, Missed INT by Weatherspoon and offensive line play, but as Coach Smith says the game is usually decided by a sum of few plays and those are the plays that decided this game. All of this is correctable, we have to tackle better and offensively we have to protect the football. I think the O-line will play better with McClure back. I also think we should have keep someone in to help Baker on passing downs since their was no threat of the run anymore. But before that those 6 plays had put us down 30 to 6. We can talk about Baker, but that was Julius Peppers, you have scheme for him. Edited September 12, 2011 by bighurt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
