    This dude just called a screen pass on 4th and 16. He's in over his head.

    Moar big game losses...

    Be competitive, that's all the fan base wants.

    You can't have these repeated non showings.

    Its the same one that has yielded 15+ yds every time this year including a td though. It was brocks errant throw that threw the timing off and allowed one of their lineman to get a hand on him.

    The play call was okay. It catches them off guard, we have had success running it and if not for a bad pass it mightve gotten close with Fullers speed. I dont have replay but I want to see the blocking upfield.

    Changing my vote to yes. This team is lost, in so many ways.

    I can change it back by the end of the season but really, godsey gets fired today. Not tomorrow. Today. Pathetic offense after an entire offseason dedicated to improving it.

    We have run it too many times. Vikings know what to do. We need new plays.

    I haven't seen enough of the Texans to have a solid opinion but in this game and the Patriots game Bill O'Brien has been very clearly out coached. The Vikings came in with a game plan of mixing the run, with quick passes. It was very similar to what the Patriots did and the Texans were ill prepared and got out in a very deep hole. Much of that goes on coaching. We can blame Osweiler for not playing well and other individual players but it looks to me that the coaching staff didn't do a good job of putting the players in a position where they had a better chance.

    Beat (albeit by uncomfortably small margins) the bad teams, get stomped by the good ones.

    BOB era in a nutshell so far.

    Butt chin has benefited from being in the worse division in the NFL. He's not a good coach.

    When you always lay an egg in the big games it's poor coaching. no question about it.

    He also benefited from inheriting Watt, Hopkins, Brown, Mercilus, Jonathan Joseph, the #1 pick his first year (Clowney),Foster (for a short time), Brandon Brooks (who he let go),

    Yep. Can't think of much he's done to really benefit this franchise since he's been here. BOB doesn't appear to be cut out to be an NFL coach.

    The front office moves have been just embarrassing IMO. We are hemorrhaging talent and not replacing it with much. Smart teams continue to draft well and not overpay guys so they can be good long term.

    I like Clowney and Fuller...those are the only guys he's gotten that have shown they could be elite

    B'Ob is probably fine as an offensive coordinator or coach with zero personnel input. Remember he signed Chick and Shrimp because "he ran for 150 yards against us that one time" (it was actually like 70 yards)

    lol everytime we get beat I feel this way. It always seems like if we lose, we really lose.

    Too much cushion, horrible play calls, bad tackling. It's more than just coaching. Players have to be held accountable as well. Also, we really don't have speed at the CB position. Could be why there's so much cushion.

    I was hoping for Peters because he's bigger and more physical but I still believe Kevin Johnson can be elite.
