please give me specific examples of poor clock management "by the coach" that occurred this year?
Sure in 2010 there were several gaffe's. 2011 a few. I can't remember any clock management issues this year.
Don't give me the sack yesterday that wasn't on the coach, nor was it on the QB. It was entirely on Sweezy. There was no chance to throw the ball away. I'm pretty sure We've had good clock management this year. In the AZ game the clock wasn't an issue. Against DET, MIA the clock wasn't the issue. Yesterday the clock wasn't the issue. SO where do you get this silly notion?
I agree that the sack was not preventable, but I also believe that with better clock management, you should have at least one timeout left in the final 30 seconds of the half if you expect your team to rally. Then, he was late trying to call a timeout on the 3rd and 1 when he clearly wanted to get Marshawn back in the game. I also chalk up his poorly timed "icing the kicker" time out - which should have been called several seconds earlier.
I'm also referring to his days at USC, when he made several memorable time management gaffes, including a few in Sark's first year at UW when the Huskies upset the Trojans.
I'm not trying to be too harsh on Pete, Hell I love the guy and don't want him going anywhere. If anything, the fact that clock management is his biggest deficiency is saying a lot about all the great things he is doing right.
