 :scratch: I don't think many people give K O'C & Donatell anywhere near the credit they deserve for the mid-game adjustments they make being as big part of the team's success as it's been so far.  :bonk: Realizing what your players/team does well & putting them in the best situation they can to succeed is huge in today's NFL IMO. That is something that the previous regime did not do................ ever. :doah: It was always more the.............. my way or the highway mentality. :sad:

Adjustments are big in the NFL. How can you explain the lack of 3rd quarter offense coming out of 1/2 time where you make those adjustments? Kind of baffling to me.

The other team makes adjustments to their D too. Just about every team will show 1 defense pre- snap & rotate out of that to something quite different just as the ball is being snapped. Often we haven't had the ball that much in the 3rd because of the adjustments on offense the other team has made & our inability to stop them starting the 2nd 1/2. Personally, I'd much rather win the 4th quarter, myself. ;) :rolleyes: :smiley:

 Darrisaw was limited in practice on Wednesday but it says nothing about yday. Smith was limited in yday's practice but Hunter, Bradbury,Bullard, & Ham are all still listed as questionable according to ESPN. :scratch:

Darrisaw apparently hasn't cleared concussion protocol yet.

After suffering concussions in two consecutive weeks, I'm all for leaving him out until he is 110%.

I just keep thinking back to the ONE concussion (that we know about, anyway) that set Justin Morneau's career back and eventually cut it short.  He was out for a very long time and when he came back, he was never the same.

I can't imagine what it is like for football players who endure that contact weak after week, year after year.

Hunter and Ham are ok to play.  Darrisaw practiced but may not play.

I hear you, Steve-0, the report I read said that after the light practice CD wasn't availabe to the media on Wednesday. No report today, either, the last time I looked.

 :scratch: How do they let Darrisaw take part in even a limited practice on Wednesday if he hasn't passed the concussion protocals yet? That doesn't sound quite right to me. :huh: I'd think the League &/or the NFLPA would have problems with that. :confused:

It looks like they can take part in a light practice even if they haven't completely cleared all the concussion protocals. Here's a condensed version of the steps required to be able to play. https://static.www.nfl.com/image/upload/v1629471746/league/umfva5wnr32ozmukz5jd.pdf

 :happy1: That was changed some early this season, after the incident with Miami's QB. ESPN says #22 isn't expected to start now, but doesn't say he won't play. :scratch: Dantzler is listed as a starting CB though.

Not good but to rather listen to PA is a insult.  :pouty:

Vilma at least talks to his audience like they are over 12 years old.

The pass defense seems rather leaky.   :rotflmao:

We don't bother QBs too much.  That is a huge problem.

Not enough pressure on Goff.....no sacks. Most of the time no one close.

Cousins throws for  425 yds. Jefferson sets team record 223 yds. Should have won the game with that. Cook's fumble down inside the 5 basically cost them the game. No Smith at Safety really hurt......to many long plays for Detroit.

We're so predictable on first down,  run up the middle for 1 yard, every time until late in the game. I won't say how many times I screamed at our soft playing secondary today, or the game before,  the game before etc..
