    Probably a bit to late for some of us to over look how long it took to get kicking.

    Lets see what he, and the rest of the coaching staff, do this week in preps for GB. :
    yeah, this game is crucial!!... and even though our defense played lights out.. i'm still a little concerned about our defense... gave up 244 yards passing in the 2nd half to a backup!!... not GOOD!!...

    plus, us going very conservative in the 2nd half on offense is a concern... first half was amazing... Now that's what I call playcalling.. i think the 2nd half shows the philosophy we and chilly have.. and i don't like it.. get a lead and hold on for dear life... that's the most concerning thing i can think of.... we should be trying to nail them to the tracks and bury them....

    If not for a few texans mistakes, that game ends a LOT different...
    Very nice, but I do have 2 comments.....

    a.
    Take away the first drive of the second half and the D played lights out.
    What the hell happened at half time?
    Anyone could see that they were bound to make a shift at QB.
    They should have at least talked about what changes would need to happen.

    Again, Leslie hasn't shown me anything worth giving him the head job my friends.

    b.
    I am not so sure that the offensive play calling changed that much.


    Seemed like they did go into more of a clock killing mentality but they still encorporated the pass in with the running game at a pretty decent rate which kept the D on thier heels a bit.
    that's exactly what i was saying..... the texans had like 3 turnovers in the red zone.. 2 coming in the second half... to me that's kind of scary considering we won by 7....

    Like i said, i swear we can't play against back up QB's...

    Offense was good... but IMO, in the second half played it too close to the vest... we threw the ball in the 2nd half out of necessity instead of sticking with the first half game plan until atleast the 4th quarter... I think a better team makes it more of a nail bitter or even wins that game....


    it's not how yu start but how you finish...

    BOOOOOOYAH!

    The KAO will work if we can continue to play clean football.
    I love a balanced attack, don't you?

    ;D
    That's not balanced.


    It's playing to your strengths.

    Re: KAO beginning to kick?

    This next game will tell our season totally. Chicago plays the unbeaten Titans. Loss for Chicago. If the Vikes can win over GB we will have a tie for 1st. Then Chicago and GB face off against each other in two weeks. This HAS to be our chance to make a move. We lose, write off the season IMHO!

    Re: KAO beginning to kick?

    Seems to me, the offensive playcalling and execution have improved.
    I absolutely loved that playaction fake for 55 yards on the first play!
    ;D
    Berrian did have two tips

    but overall, the past 4 weeks he's been pretty impressive.
    Shank has had some nice grabs.
    Very nice to have Rice back with a TD!
    Allison has had a couple called back due to penalty...I think he's bound to break one loose soon.
    Not bad.
    Maybe there is hope...although I'm still far from sold on Childress.
    Thats why, IMHO, he's got the rest of the year to see what he's got.
    And, thanks to the defense, we could have had 35 points on offense, but honorable move on the knee too.



    The defense held the No.4 offense (yds/game) in the NFL out of the endzone for most of the game.
    Remember, Once again, there were points scored while our defense wasn't on the field.
    In addition to two guys of similar skills at QB, they have the playmakers (A.Johnson, Slaton, Walter, Daniels) to keep their offense kicking with the backup.
    That Madieu grab was a really nice play!
    Allen seems to be getting better each week...more pressure even if not the stats.
    And Winfield just keeps showing up big!!
    Sharper, got burnt at least once going for the pick, and then, missed the easy pick, making sure he got the hit instead.
    At least it was still a stop.
    Also, coincidence?
    Our defense let up that long, smooth drive the same quarter our offense was struggling (no points in third)...?
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Yesterday it was called passing to open up the run.Amazingly, it worked.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"
