Definitely letdown afer this game...Pats get out to a 10 point lead and i should have known better to expect them to hold off Dolphins...why does our D continue to make such middle of the pack QB's look like anything more?
This game our pass rush was better, but my man Nink has seem to have disappeared on me. This D after having that amazing run of games forcing a turnover has be non existent. We need those to give this O a chance to put points on the board. We are in the unfortunate spot where we arent able to hold teams down from scoring. Hightower getting beat by Thigpen and NOT making the tackle was IMO a blessing. At least at the end of the day we had about 3-4 chances at the endzone. Unfortunately without THE Gronk we are oh so weak in the redzone. Amendola and miniTron were huge all game, but when we could use a big receiver to win a jumpball or fight off a defender we can only turn to our injury report and
at KT and Dobson. Now reports Boyce was seen walking with a noticeable limp = more Few "highlights" that come to mind when going over the game in no particular order:
-Gost missing a 48 yard aint too bad, hard to fault him there.......... but that KO out of bounds??? really, really he did that?
-Dane Fletcher with that awful/huge penalty on 3rd down
-O line getting man handled again. Solder leaving the game with the head injury
-Hightower looked better, but still getting beat badly when in coverage. the lack of Mayo is noticeable
-Cole/Gregory getting beat by Wallace. Miami picking on them as soon as Arrington went out the game. How Gregory allowed himself to get out of position to make that tackle bothers me
-4 and 5 we couldnt even get the stop
-2 huge drives of 12+ plays and chewing up time lead to just FG....if our D can't stop the other team or get a takeaway, how can we live on FGs?
sorry for the long post y'all just frustrated and this huge missed opportunity we had
thanks go out to Steelers =
