I suppose O'Brien would say he did not expect that the NO kicker would set a personal best in the last 2 seconds of that game!  But, when you play indoors ... looked like he had a good 5 more yards on that kick, so might have been good from about 63 yards out?

 

Week 1 sure changes the air pressure (ode to deflate gate) in teams' preseason hype.  Reality sets in sometime in November, then everyone scrambles to try to get into the January fun.

 

For those who might read Peter King FMIA, see this week's edition and the comment he does on other writers which I think is pretty cool for him to do.  The clip about Bart Starr and his wife was just plain amazing human context.

No way.  O'Brien is running the offense and play calling.  He trusts Romeo as well he should but that was a bad call on that play.   That was situational football.  You've got to trust your coordinators.

Listening to Mark Schleretz (sp?) on the radio and they were talking about this very thing. He said that when he played for Mike Shanahan in Denver, Shanahan would go to his coordinators and tell them what he wanted. i think the head coach “advising” his coordinators is fairly common. 

I know in the military, when the boss was pissed, he didn’t go to my guys -- he went to me, because my staff was supposedly carrying out the orders that i had given. I didn’t stand over them and instruct them on every detail; but, it was my job to make sure they knew what i wanted.  

It wasn’t a trust issue ... it was a role issue.  Unless given the authority to call all the shots without conferring with O’Brien, then he is working within the parameters that O’Brien sets.  At the very least, I’m asking Romeo “what are you thinking here?”  If i agree, fine -- if not, I overrule him. I shouldn’t ever be surprised by what one of my staff does.  They manage their players, i manage them ... that’s why i’m the boss -- if they have carte blanc then they really don’t need me.

I didn't know that Antonio Brown was fighting a rape case. I thought he just talked a lot.

I think he did more than talked.

Pretty sure the woman just filed the civil lawsuit within the last two days.

Innocent till proven guilty.

you’re showing your age Carl ... that sort of thinking went out of style a decade or so ago. Nowadays, accusation or suspicion is enough to convict, in the court of public opinion at least.

Yep.  Just ask Calvin Murphy or the Duke lacrosse team.

He's certainly made some errors in the past but last night loss was more on Romeo (who I like by the way).

Maybe, but the bad set-up was there for everyone to see.  The announcers saw it well before the snap.  Why didn't O see it and call time-out?

 

Edit:  Just looked it up, and there we no time-outs left.
