Does he NOt trust his team by calling that timeout? WTF dude? BB's worst game as HC of the NEP.....
I think the worst game was that game where Tom Coughlin outcoached him.. Though he was not at his best, must be the hoodie thing..
This was not BB's best game by a long shot. The challenge was also dumb, even if you win it. Not at all worth the risk given the point in the game. He out-thought himself tonight, if he just lets the team play, they win.
Pretty frustrating to watch the team waste their timeouts in the 2nd half. Especially on that 4th & 1.
I think hes overcompensating for the loss of TB and Rodney - Ive never seen him like this.
Did he take advice from Herm Edwards before this game or something? He seemed to do everything wrong tonight.
The overall gameplan was okay. But like I mentioned in the game thread, when you shorten the game like that, one mistake can spell your doom. And that was the Thomas foul. On the bright side, this is a regular season game and there is plenty more to be played. You can bet BB won't be this passive or faulty when the season is on the line.
BB frequently does this against the Colts...he's scared to death of being beaten by Manning.
agreed. we lose everytime he wears something different. It looked like he had the hoodie on underneath his pullover, but that's just not the same.
The other thing that kills me about the last TO is the indecisiveness by BB. If you're leaning towards FG you might as well just let the damn play clock run out. It's a 25 yard kick instead of 20, woopteedoo. BB really managed this thing as badly as he could have, this will really sting later on if it costs us a shot at a bye or the playoffs altogether
Good point. Hadn't considered that.
I'm in the minority, but the FG call doesn't really upset me. BB apparently had a gut feeling about the situation; call it "panic" if you'd like, but I'd wager his intuition serves the Pats well 9 times out of 10. In the presser, he did say that the distance was greater than he initialy realized.
