My gripe is not necessarily with the offensive pieces that were missing causing matchup problems for us. That happens, and you have to play with who you have. Matter of fact, I thought ESB and MVS both came up with a couple huge plays at crucial times. Their explosiveness and pure athletic ability showed on multiple occasions.
What I am so upset about, is that we are still seeing the same old failures out of this team: coming out flat and falling into a deep hole; stupid penalties that turn the momentum or completely erase it - especially after big defensive stops; receivers being out of position; route concepts that are stale and ineffective; our best RB not being on the field for most of the game.
It's a lot of the same issues over and over again with McCarthy's team. Like DTB said, it is his job to get the team ready, and he is not doing that. I don't think he should be fired right now, but I think Murphy should at least be loading the clip and dialing in the scope at this point. What MM is putting on the field is unacceptable.
