Nice lack of an offensive line.

Stafford has a lot to do with it.

If you have really good instincts you actually don't.    he doesn't have that either. 

Playing against NFL receivers I'd agree instincts would be good to make up half a step, but there is a bottom line where you just can't keep up and Teez seems to be below it. Heck, you watch him play and he plays like *he* believes he can't keep up.

Literally no one blocked #93, if he threw the pass it's very possible it would have been intercepted on a tip, and you would be blasting him for blowing 3 easy points.

If the offensive line just lets a defensive lineman loose untouched, it's probably not the QB's fault.

I'd blame the coaches for having called a timeout, and then still having to rush the next play with 1 on the play clock

Didn't even have Harrison in there on a run down. What was the point of the trade then?

Exactly my thought. Rest him on 2nd/3rd and long. 

Weak link of this team, though, is JBC. Continually getting his team into 3rd and long. He has more than enough playmakers to move the ball. 

And again, take ball out of end zone on KO, get penalty, start inside 20.

The way that line is playing, doesn't matter what JBC calls today.

Disagree. They have had several big chunks when they’ve gotten RBs to the edge. So take it, JBC. Make them stop it. Then go back inside.

I'd like to see some screen plays to Johnson. That tends to slow down a pass rush

Completely stupid play by Riddick to go out of bounds. This team is bad at everything

He had a lane to the inside too.

I never watch NFL football but this game is on my local Fox Channel and I can watch it and enjoy the brotherhood of complaining that I am familiar with from the Tigers.  I hope that the tight shoes of this form complaining are similar to the tight shoes of the complaining I’m used to.
