Worst call I have ever seen. I know it all worked out, but Christ take a time out.

Johnson looked extremely winded after the run before that. Im guessing thats why he came out.

Yeah, when I saw LJ on the bench I fully expected the quick trap to TRich, not a slow devoloping run to a practice squad guy.

If only we had Sam Gado....

I thought for sure we would go down by 3 after that call. Thank God we didn't

I thought for sure when Brown came in Green would throw it. I guess A.S. thought Denver would think that too.

That was a STUPID STUPID call. Take the f*ckin timeout give to LJ. Dee Brown? I almost choked on my beer when I saw that.

That was unforgivable. DV delegates to all of the coordinators, thus giving him the ability during the game to see "the big picture". If that's not a big picture decision, I don't know what is. I would have used all three timeouts in succession if that's what it took to get LJ his wind back.

I would rather have Green ran it outside like he did in earlier

I bout came unglued when I saw that. DV admitted after the game that it was a mistake and he should have called the TO.

I agree, I was thinking even taking a TO to let LJ catch his breath even though it would have stopped the clock when we were trying to run it out, still. A bootleg and Trent could have picked up the yard.

they showed DV face after that play was ran and he didn't look happy he was shaking his head and bitching in to the headset i think he thought lj was still in when the play was ran

That was definitely the one big mistake... really other than that I thought our coaches had a pretty good game.

I just don't think they were prepared for LJ to take himself out in that situation... I imagine everybody's learned their lesson so it doesn't happen again though. Although I guess hopefully that situation doesn't come up too many times. LJ hasn't had to carry the load like this quite yet, we probably should be working Dee Brown in there a time or two earlier in the game like we used to with Blaylock.

I would've trusted TRICH more he guarantees 1 yard usually lol. LJ was way too out of it to u could tell.

Jim Brown would not have made the first down on that play.

Having Dee Brown run it only made it more of a wtf play. At that point in the game while Denver still had timeouts, they were going to sell out for the running play to the left.

On the play before LJ was more concerned about staying in bounds and not getting the first down. I think he will learn from that. I think he could have dragged Ferguson another yard if he did not give himself up to stay in bounds.

Basically from what DV said. LJ took himself out of the game calling for Brown to go into the game, the OC, HC didn't notice until the play had been called, because they didn't call LJ to come out. He said their run D blitz worked perfectly, and Hercules probably wouldn't have gotten it.

Staying in was the most important thing IMO.

I was upset when the play was run. That being said, if you can't trust your backup RB to make a play once in a while, you're in trouble. A run up the gut probably wouldn't have gained the yard either. The Donx were selling out to stop the run.

Me too. It was crunch time. That's what TO's are for. That is a great example of why I don't want Saunders for our HC. He makes bad decisions in great quantities. No thanks.
