That 4th down call should be the nail for Manning

And who reviewed those wonderous plays and approved them for use in the game and continues to do so? Who keeps standing there with the authority to do something about it and does nothing as we all curse at our screens when we see the old shotgun formation from third and fourth down and a yard to gain or the old quick 2–4-yard crossing route on third and eleven?

Imagine what opposing defensive minds must be thinking:

"Those fools are lining up in shotgun again with a yard to gain. Stack the box and pin your ears time to tackle for a guaranteed loss. BRING EVERYONE!!!!"
Good Gawd, we sound just like Hawk fans

Yes, who we were mocking earlier this year because they have a head coach beyond accountability?

Watched the TCU-Texas game, and TCU's Oline was a thing of beauty. Driving off the ball and kept on blocking until the play was over.

our guys never do that. They whiff and then watch. They need to be hitting until the hear the whistle.

That’s why you roll out the qb. Did that a lot last week and only twice this week with success and never seen it again. Just like many other things that are successful and then all of the sudden they disappear.
Just listening to Bruns, he called the 4th down qb dive from the shotgun the second worst play all he's ever seen.
