The first sack on Mac, during their 2nd drive of the game, was a direct result of Strange69 completely blowing his ass-ignment on 1st/10 at the Miami 40... Took them out of possible FG range...

I’ve never seen an nfl offensive guard fall off so many blocks in a game as I did watching cole “the” strange “pick” on Sunday.

On the radio today Zo was saying the same things many of us on here have said. For the 2 TE, 2 WR set the WR's cannot be Meyers and Parker. One or the other but not both. With their separation/speed issues it makes it to easy on the D. Go man / bump n run and it gives Mac a very tight window to make a completion. Have to have a different skill set out there to put a bit of pressure on the D and give Mac some easier throw options. Also may put the other team in more zone coverage which will allow for Parker to be more effective.

More venting….Stevenson and Harris should have had close to 200 rushing yards combined…the yards were there for the taking. Bourne should have had 100 yards receiving and top 5 league-wide for YAC.

Instead of playing our game…we played someone else’s.

Here's a man with a solid grasp on reality. No ifs, buts or excuses. I like him.

“Honestly, no disrespect, but it don’t matter. You gotta move on,” Judon said. “We got to play better. We want to win games, so we don’t really take no moral victories and be like, ‘Alright, well we could have did this, we did this.’ We didn’t do anything good enough to win. So, we’ve got to step it up and play better. As good as we played — as good as we think we played, we’ve got to be better in order for us to win games. That’s really what it’s all about — every week going 1-0, so we’ve just got to play better.”

I watched the highlights again last night. With the exception of some communication breakdowns, I didn’t see Strange struggle very much. He needs polish but he looked athletic in space and seemed to do well blocking in the passing and running game.

Would be curious to see the snaps that you saw Strange falling off of blocks, because as someone who watched a lot of his snaps fewer than 24 hours ago, I didn’t see the same.

Can you share a few clips? There are extended highlights on YouTube and you can make YouTube gifs fairly easily with a quick google search. Curious to see more of what you saw.

When they're in 12- or 21-personnel, the two WRs should Almost Always be their fastest ones, Bourne & Agholor.

Substitute Meyers in place of Agholor on most 3rd downs.

And tell Parker to take a seat.

If they team is running the ball doesn't it make sense to have the better blockers in the game than the faster players? I like the idea of having one of Meyers or Parker in the game and one of Bourne or Agholor in the game in any two receiver sets. Although, I don't really think much of Agholor. Sure he gets good separation, but he really needs to be wide open, if the test is contested at all I don't have faith in him coming down with it.

Strange played a fine game. The one series benching was an example of good coaching by BB. Definitely a "Welcome to the NFL. Settle down and you'll be all right" moment.

Comments on this, I see a lot of alignment issues. While it is a nice play by Tua to look Bentley off, if other players are aligned better it wouldn't have mattered.

1. Peppers looks like he is either spying the QB or has the running back if that player releases. He should be a lot deeper if that's his role. I know the hope is that he confuses the lineman, but being within a yard of the line of scrimmage and just hanging out there doesn't help anyone. If he's deeper then Bentley doesn't need to move so far over.

2. Bentley cheating up to the line to show blitz seemed to have left him in bad position. But also, I'm not sure if a play design that funnels their receivers towards Bentley is what we want with his issues in coverage. If we are going to funnel to Bentley there better be another player in the middle to help him.

3. Dugger seems too deep to start the play, another couple yards up the field by alignment pre-snap and he makes the tackle.

If you also look at this version, Andrews whiffed on a block making Agholor have to assist up the middle and let the edge guy come free.


Good point. Andrews miss forced Ty to pick up that rusher instead of the guy coming from the edge.
