Broken Hearts

Postby Gibbs4Life » Sat Nov 03, 2012 8:45 am

How will our Skins break our hearts this week? Will it be dropped passes? Injuries? Or my favorite..the late game meltdown.

There's always the blocked kick. What else ...

Taking a shot on 3rd and 4 then punting when 5 yards would put us in FG range.

Zero blitzing on 3rd and more than 12 - and getting burned - of course.

Dropping a pick - or 3.

Calling TO to save 5 yards in the 2nd half - right before we punt.

Trying a 65 yard field goal on 4th and 10 with 30 seconds to go while down by 3.

Throwing deep to Griffin against cover 2.

Running a late flea-flicker down by 3 scores.

Not going no-huddle when the whole world is asking "WHY?"

This is almost fun.

How about we kick some ass.

we get to see this week how well RG3 handles a rough outing .. The Steelers showed how to slow him down and Im sure teams will follow suit with what they did.. Will be interesting to see how he bounces back and how we counter what teams will be doing to stop him..

The Panthers are very familiar with the read option considering they used it so much last year with Cam Newton so this will be a good test. Also a make or break point in the season for the team so Im def interested to see how RG3 and the team handle this game.

Probably not, but at least he can make the 'chip shots'. Don't jinx him though, not a heartbreaker so far.

Yes, you simply have to have our receivers drop 11 or 12 balls, and he'll be slowed down. Now, if the rest of the teams on our schedule can do that, we'll be done for. :roll:

Not jinxing him. Darth, was referring to the St. Louis game (though it was 16 yards to go, and 1:03 left) where Cundiff was our kicker, and failed miserably. I might add to his list, kick onsides with 3:47 left, and trailing by four.

Exactly. I don't know how another team is going to make our open receivers drop a ball that hits them in the hands. Our wideouts left perhaps 100+ yards on the field on Sunday.

RGIII's probable stats if the receivers drop 1 or 2 instead of 10: 70%+ completion rate, 230+ yards, and another touchdown. Basically, the same stats he's been getting all year.

The Steelers did not "slow down" RGIII. :roll:

something new each week

thankfully we have a week off before we have a whole bunch of good teams to play against :lol:
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version
