We won one game. Manziel?

We talking about One Win, man

18 September 2014 - 07:33 AM

"We're sitting in here, and I'm supposed to be the excited fan, and we in here talking about one win. I mean, listen, we're talking about one win, not a AFC North Title, not even a division victory, not a win streak, we talking about one win. Not multiple games. Not, not ... Not the season that I go out there and die for and attend every game like it's my last season. Not the big game, but we're talking about one win, man. I mean, how silly is that? ... And we talking about one win. I know I supposed to be there. I know I'm supposed to lead by example... I know that... And i'm not.. I'm not shoving it aside, you know, like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I do. I honestly do... But we're talking about one win man. What are we talking about? One win? We're talking about one win, man. [laughter from the media crowd] We're talking about one win. We're talking about one win. We ain't talking about clinching the division. [more laughter] We're talking about one win, man. When you go to the stadium, to watch them play, you've seen what can go wrong in any given season, right? You've seen promising season go up in flames, right? But we're talking about one game right now. We talking about one.." - Allen Atenears


Best Coached Complete Game in Years

First we backed up deferring the ball until after the half, with a great defensive stand to start the game (Great start was warranted and key). 
 
Followed that up with sustained momentum through most of the first half. Had a bit of a brain fart falling into prevent defense and allowing the Saints to score rather easily prior to the half, but what impressed me is that we didn't panic once losing the lead in the second half. 
 
We didn't abandon the run, even when time wasn't exactly on our side. 
 
I liked that we at least attempted to create a spark with Manziel, even though the play calling might not have fit the situation. The Saints seemed to have us bogged down mid-way through the third quarter and I thought rolling Manziel out like we were doing with Hoyer in the first half would force the Saints to respect Johnny's running ability and make them counter. Anyhow, the Manziel insert didn't appear to help among the stats but the team did seem to pick back up on the lost tempo after the experience.
 
Huge defensive play and sack by Dansby kept us within a Field Goal. A little luck on the time clock adjustment and perfectly blown coverage by a Rex Ryan defense (Thanks buddy!). We'll take it!
 
Game ball to head coach Mike Pettine, as the team was "in-control" and onboard as a whole all game long. Followed/stuck-to a game plan and out-executed the New Orleans Saints.
 
Well played.

"With the first pick in the draft the fucking Cleveland Browns select Tim Manzel!"

 

I just don't get this franchise.
