    Get a lead, go into a shell.

    That must be the Shurmur game plan. Maybe I'm just irritated right after the game, but I feel like we're seeing a pattern. We get a lead, we go into an offensive shell. Step on their throats! sob

    Shurmur, Shurmur, Shurmur ...

    The defense did it too. Scared to blitz Troy Smith?

    This is Spags philosophy, guarantee it ...

    I remember a coach, a Marty somebody, who played just like this. We get a few more playmakers and we'll be just like his old teams ....

    yeah that too. I'm under a post game -mad as he11 fog-, I need some time to step back. But I feel like I'm seeing the same thing happen over and over again. Feel like Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day..

    Re: Get a lead, go into a shell.

    Prior to the two minute drive to send the game into overtime, I believe the Rams had four three-and-out drives in a row. Whether it's the coaches or the players (or, more likely, both), that's simply unacceptable if you expect to win in this league.

    Well Gibson doing the two step instead of just falling forward killed two of those drives.

    Well, we already have that "killer instinct of a panda" thing down.

    exactly, gibson personally killed two drives trying to juke, when just leaning forward would have gotten the first downs.

    Agreed completely. Talk about a lack of awareness of where the first down marker is.

    Yes, damn that man for trying to make a play when we actually throw the ball downfield ...

    I cannot believe people are lambasting Gibson when he worked hard all day to actually get open and catch passes ....

    There are SOOOO many other glaring disasters that lost this game ...

    Am I frustrated with Gibson? Yes, but he had 8 nice grabs today ...

    Re: Get a lead, go into a shell.

    my post game hate filled fog is lifting. I'm starting to remember all that crap that went wrong. I now remember screaming through the tv at Gibson a few times. I appreciate he is trying to make plays after the catch. but you gotta get that 1st down!!! At least we had some receiver not named Danny making some catches.

    Re: Get a lead, go into a shell.

    We do go into a shell once we're in front. Its like the gameplan every week is to build a lead, and then just try to hold onto it. Even in some of the games we've won, this seemingly was the strategy.

    Amazing people are blasting Gibson but not Fells, who dropped a potential TOUCHDOWN!

    There are times when the best play is to just fall down. It's on Gibson to recognize that. What was that point Shurmur tried to hammer into Bradford? Ah yes, "Take what you are given." Gibson really needs to heed that advice.

    I agree ...

    But at least he is catching the ball, and everyone thrown his way the past few games ...
