For the second week in a row, DeVante Parker ran a half-ass, lazy route and made little effort for the ball, costing his team a vital possession and sure points.
Adam Gase refuses to call a simple QB sneak when it’s third and inches or even 4th and inches.
Michael Thomas blew coverage on a fake punt, doubtless because he was thinking of new ways to disrespect the National Anthem.
The refs decided that fighting for a loose fumble is no longer allowed. Instead, they ruled that once a Patriot touched a muffed punt, the play was over. Even though you see scrambling inside a pile every single week in every single game, when it happens to the Patriots, then the play is automatically over. (Just like last week when the play was over because the Buc quarterback bumped into his own man).
Bobby McCain was somehow ejected for doing something that happens on almost all skirmishes.
The Pats get 90 seconds on their play clock.
Back to Adam Gase’s play calling…on the drive before halftime, he finally did a good job of mixing plays. Short passes to Landry and then screens to Damien Williams. It was all working. That’s why it’s so infuriating that he called a fade route to that bum Parker. I’ll keep saying this until Gase proves me wrong: He sees what is working, and then moves AWAY from it. So many drives stall in the red zone because Gase tries something new. It never works.
Soooo sick of hearing how Caroo and Grant and Reshawn Scott are so great in practice, but then Gase benches all of them and allows Parker to play and cost us games.
Soooooo sick of hearing how great Darren Rizzi is. He didn’t see the fake punt coming at all. Even I noticed the upback was in a weird position. Dizziness and Michael Thomas fell asleep.
Sooooo sick of Adam Gase saying “we’ll fix it.”
