I love how the announcers repeatedly called out our tendency to do this. Gee, I wonder if opposing coaches have also noticed this??

That's it! Damn, if we just had a little more luck on our side, our 2nd down runs wouldn't constantly result in 1-2 yards and a cloud of dust!
We almost had them on their heels when we only lost 5 to 9 yards on second down runs.

Whoever cleared KW3 to play in this game should be sued for malpractice. Hopefully he didn't hurt himself further in a game he clearly should not have been active.

I muted that guy a few times, but he was probably right

Meanwhile McIntosh is still riding the bench with 0 reps in 3 weeks

It's not even 2nd and short, it is almost a guarantee on 2nd and 6+. I think they called one pass play on a 2nd and 10. Otherwise it was a run play called for a loss resulting in 3rd and 9+. It's honestly baffling how bad these well paid coaches are at their jobs.

The announcers are idiots. They were saying how we are a run first run often team. That’s been so not true this year. We had a backup qb in so we ran the ball a bit more to help him out. This has not been the identity of our team at all this year.
