    Miscommunication

    The miscommunication that is happening between QB and receivers has hurt us more than once this year and we have been lucky a few times when it has happened. Barnett's INT today was a prime example. Does anyone else notice this? Would REALLY like to see this cleaned up.

    Re: Miscommunication

    It's incredibly noticeable. Not being a football player, I'm not sure if it's a QB problem, receiver, or a combination of each, but it was incredibly evident today and might have really hurt us.

    Re: Miscommunication

    His INT wasn't a result of miscommunication. It was a result of underthrowing a receiver when the play call was having every receiver run straight to the endzone. And that's what was stupid. It's not hard to defend when the receivers are in the exact same spot.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Miscommunication

    But other plays, I agree, the miscommunication was not only noticeable but embarrassing as well. You get so much time to practice and this is what pays off.
