    Jay Gruden is a very good offensive play caller. He is an AWFUL situation strategist…simply awful. He bumbles clock management, timeout use, when to take risks(eg. when the game is slipping away or you just have a superior opponent that day), when to booth review(even if it’s just to let your defense regroup). I can’t take that confused glazed look on his face when he takes his nose out of his play chart. I cannot count the number of times he’s given other teams time on the clock to score at the end of halves and games(TWICE last night). I understand he does tons and tons of game prep – how about practicing sideline strategies with other coaches during the week?? How about studying how GREAT situational coaches do it – like Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick or even Sean Payton(yes, Sean Payton) control a game?? So many games are LOST in the NFL by stupid sideline strategy(mostly in the 4th quarter when mistakes are magnified). He needs to be told how bad he is as a game manager. FIX IT!!!

    Love you throwing shade at the fans calling them “couch warriors” as if you are some ex-player with scary wicked insight. You have your dopey takes as much as anyone. Kerrigan and Breeland were not good (as usual) and PSmith was awful. Pryor’s bad hands and a seeming lack of balls are worrying as well.

    If Jordan Reed is healthy (questionable) he should be seeing 10 targets a game. He’s as much an athlete as Kelce and not as big a DBag.

      They should trade Reed. He can’t stay on the field, so he’s way over-valued. He’ll be out of football within three years.

    Hey Czabe,
    I get your argument about Doctson’s drop and it’s impact on the game in perspective of all the other issues/plays. However, I still think Doctson’s incomplete was inexcusable once he had caught the ball. He did the tough part (the 9/10 part, as you say) – he went up and caught the ball in magnificent fashion. But, instead of suckin’ it up, keeping two hands/arms on the ball, twisting and landing hard, he instead broke his fall by extending an arm. In doing so, he exposed the ball to being popped out like it did.
    My two cents…
