Well this has to be the hardest defeat to swallow this season. We opened the game up at Baltimore absolutely dominating both sides of the ball in the first half, then the dream turned into a nightmare. The coach who needs to be shown the door first is Mike Miller since our play calling was absolutely terrible all 2nd half, please note coach Miller, if you have a two posession lead please don't put it on your QB's shoulders (they are far far to small to handle it) and pass on first down. I get the conception that it may catch a defense by surprise but when this arm chair expert knows your passing I can only imagine how much professionals know about your tendencies. We were simply outcoached all second half.
About our talent, I was beginning to think we just do not have the talent in the right places to win this season; however with Scho and Cho spreading tackles, forcing a fumble, racking two sacks, generating pressure, and even smothering in coverage on a few plays, I ask myself why in the F#ck! have they not been seeing more playing time from the get go. Turns out Joey Porter sitting out came with writing on the wall, but I'm calling for Haggans to see more time on the bench. Offensively Beanie really does look like he can be right in the mix with AP and DMC, but at the very least he's striking fear into DB's. Honorable mention to the performance of Daryl Washington he was all over the field today just like we will need him to be if we are going to be a top 5 unit.
Last but not least the position debate that is driving the wedge here at ROTB. It is time to put Kevin Kolb on the bench and wish him well at the end of the season. I know he hasn't had the time, but going on his 5th season in the league he should be making better decisions, and if we are going to have a QB tossing balls down the field, let's put the QB in that can zip it 50 yards down field. If your reading Whiz please make it Skelton time for this fan's sanity. Let's give the kid a chance to save the season instead of waiting until the season is lost to give him some playing time.
