    Don't see the link posted in the forums. After the last "in-game" thread, I noticed a lot of Manning hate. Some even comment that they would prefer the CMC called offense of last year. Count me as someone that doesn't get that sentiment! Dude seems like a rock star to me! I don't blame him for every time someone jumps off-sides when we get inside the 20.

    I always knew the back up quarterback is the most popular player on the team. Is it also true that the offensive play caller is always the most hated guy with the team?

    I am not a fan sometimes when we try and get too fancy inside the goal line. Other than that he is fine.

    In my opinion they can get as fancy as they want inside the goal line as long as they don't draw a celebration penalty.

    I think he's good at finding what can work, but then goes away from that and decides to occasionally throw something out there that the offense looks really uncomfortable running and is usually ineffective.

    From my general observations, there seems to be two recurring themes I see.

    1) people want us to run the ball more. Some people on here feel we throw it too much. Additionally, in this category, people want us to run it on short yardage situations to get the first down rather than passing for it. There is some validity in some folks wanting us to run it more. Which leads to the next.

    2) As fans, we have the ability to view things in hindsight. When something doesn't work out, we say 'why didn't they run it instead.' Additionally, as fans, we don't know what the coaches are thinking. There maybe something that they know and have studied on the opposing team that we don't know. Personally, for me you cannot always blame the coaches when something doesn't go right. Even if the play call was correct, the players need to execute on the play. Additionally, the defense could have called for the exact right play that would counter our offensive play.

    This is what I personally see as themes.

    What I personally see as themes are couch coaches who think they know more about football than the coaches do. Apparently they are unwilling to write Jamie and tell him they could do a better job for, say, 3/4 the salary that Manning makes.

    So they post here.

    Even with the 60 passes, the defense actually failed us worse that game. Giving up three 50+ yard TDs is back-breaking.

    He wasn't nominated by peo ole who don't know football. Again we forget how lucky we are. I don't like a lot of what these guys do, but I know that I don't know carpt compared to them. Can't say I watch a lot of film on an opponent before I go to a game. Congratulations
