Cant even enjoy wins. There is an attitude, a desire to win, a killer instinct absent. Poor discipline. Silly errors like Jones putting the ball on the ground when he wasnt down. The TO followed by delay of game penalty when we were on goal line. Punting into end zone at the end. Not trying to ice Dallas' kicker. To me thats a gap in coaching. I hope our next coach is a bulldog.
1. The brutal delay of game at the 1, AFTER we had a timeout to think about it.
2. The brutal late pick by Cousins that allowed the Bears to mount the drive to die from close in.
3. The should have been second pick by Cousins that Reed tipped to Jones - who just as brutally as Cousins almost handed it right back to the Bears with a play every bit as dumb as Jackson's punt return on Monday night.
These moments reflect a clear lack of grace under pressure at times.
That said, the grace Cousins and the O showed in the win versus the Eagles, the win versus the Bucs, and the win versus the Giants were instances where we had grace under pressure.
So we're a middling, up and down team with some talent but lots of room for improvement.
Really hard to understand how Cousins was so bad late. He's not been much of a bad weather QB - I think that much is fairly clear, and that's disappointing as he knows bad weather from his midwestern H.S. and College football past where that is the norm after October.
BuryMeInBurgundyAndGold: still needs to be fired nack, you are going to lose like that more then you get lucky and win like we did tonight.

southskin: We're 4-2, bury. Can we give we give it a rest for a week? Some of y'all continue to predict doom, but we keep on winning.

SkinsFan67: When we were sitting 2-2, I told every one that we had 4 very winnable games coming up. All i got was we've never beaten Cam or Dak. Well, cross those off the bucket list.

southskin: I think this offenders may start to click doing the latter part of the season.

RUsknFan: I think few teams win both of these games with the guys we had out.
Oct 21, 2018 18:54:14 GMT -5
RUsknFan: It would be like KC beating Cinci and Baltimore back to back without Hill, Hunt, and Kelce.

southskin: Chris Spielhman said today.... It's tough for most teams to win with multiple starters out.
Oct 21, 2018 18:55:12 GMT -5
southskin: He said that during the Vikings/Jets game, as the Jets had several starters out today.

raypetty: We were fortunate tonight but I'll take the win. No penalty the game would have been tied. Way to go D you played your hearts out! Nice game by AP too. Doctson show more today than at any time during his tenure here.
