Scared to blitz. Scared to throw deep. Scared to take chances. WTF were we rushing THREE on 3rd and long vs a QB who is known for makimng mistakes? On top of that, Cutler's confidence was probably shaky at best after last years playoff loss. So what does Van Gorder do? He GIVES the guy confidence by rushing 3 and NOT blitzing. Then we trade all these picks for our shiny new toy on offense (so we are supposed to be explosive.. LOLOLOLOLOL) and dont even throw deep. NOT ONCE. inside the 20 and we dont throw into the endzone. NOT ONCE.. SCARED FOOTBALL my friends.

Actually we did blitz, but not on 3rd down.

Other than that offensively yea they play scared, a mixture between Ryan and mularky.

Decoud needs to step his f*cking game up.....I remember he dropped a couple INTS in that Patriots game.

yep, jenks did to, and u see where he is. i really think decoud has hit his ceiling.... the one he dropped in the endzone u could see grimey pissed off about it...

Also. Decoud drops 2 INTs that could have totally changed the direction of the game. You think Ed Reed or Troy Palumalu (sp?) drops those?

They drop picks shoot Reed dropped one yesterday. The thing is they wont do it TWICE. That's what separates elite players like them and role players like Decoud.

He needs to step his game up for real.

680 Chuck Oliver is reporting that a sound clip caught Ryan saying eventhough Mularkey was calling for deeper throws--Matt Ryan didn't feel good and decided on the check passes

It is true, but it's not because he wasn't confident. It was because he never had over 2 seconds to get rid of the ball. The routes take a few seconds to develop.

The offensive line and BVG failed us this game, not Ryan.

yea it actually was, and why we didnt blizt more with that suspect line is byond me... if were gonna sit back and get beat by a scren we might as well try and come after you, or at least give the impression of it better then we do now

The other play he had pressure on was the roll right and the TE was WIDE OPEN, but we pressured him and HE MISSED.. thats what Cutler does.. He has a rifle arm, so it doesnt matter how good your coverage is, he will find a hole and zing it if he has time, BUT.... if he's pressured he panics and makes mistakes. EVERY team in the league knows this. Van Gorder didnt get the memo i guess

More excuses. Great players make things happen and he just didn't do it simple as that.

If you get lemons make lemonade, Rodgers had to run for his life last year and he managed to by some time for things to open up. He needs to man up and extend plays when things aren't going perfect for him. That's what elite qbs do.

yea i dnt kno wat happened either. i guess he thought we could get enough pressure with just our front which is a fair assessment but still, adjust to wat happens during a game, and i saw none of it.... SMH

Agree 1,000%. I'm sick of this conservative/scared/intimidated crap. Hey, coach, why don't you open things the *** up this week? Even if you get your brains beat out again, at least we will know you actually threw caution to the wind and made the effort to win.

They have it on audio---Mularkey was calling for deeper throws and Ryan said he didn't feel good about doing that and decided on his check-down reads---680 talked about briefly today

Someone find a link to this. Audio would blow the whole "it's Mularkey's fault" argument out of the water.
