Normally I’d blast someone in this instance, but the fact that colt is over there too causes me pause. Both QBs sitting over there? That’s not an accident.
Just makes it doubly pathetic

This isn’t just some kyler thing. There’s only two guys sitting there. And they are both QBs. I’m guessing coaches told them to look at tablets.
In a game that was already decided with a teammate who could be down paralyzed on the field? Come on…

“There was a lot more I could have done off the field and in the film room that could have elevated my game to a different level,” Vick said
“I was complacent at the time, somewhat lazy, and I settled for mediocrity. I thought what I was doing was enough.”

“I'm not one of those guys that's going to sit there and kill myself watching film. I don't sit there for 24 hours and break down this team and that team and watch every game because, in my head, I see so much.”
“I think I was blessed with the cognitive skills to just go out there and just see it before it happens,” Murray said.

Someone needs to wake him up.
Yes he sees so much..................the asses of the OL he can't see over lol.

For those looking for a glimmer of hope this might be the best thing to happen to Kyler.

Kyler has been way too big for his boots. He was MVP through the first 7 games and not even top 20 through the remaining 11.

An embarrassing playoff destruction that was easily the worse game of his life might hopefully set him straight.

** > He has the talent. He simply doesn't have the work ethic when it comes to the boring stuff. He'll pump weights and throw balls all day but skim his film study.

Kyler seems to spend more time making TV commercials than studying the play book to call audibles. He goes with what KK calls which are not the best play when the defense shows the 'play' is going nowhere. Peyton was awesome at checking off before a snap > OMAHA

I just don't get Kyler this year.

He was a top 3 QB in weeks 1-8. He played amazing. His passing accuracy, his reading of defenses, his audibles. Everything looked like he had taken a huge leap.

Then from week 13 to 18 he was last years Kyler. Accuracy fell off, reading defenses was piss poor, he seemed to have stopped audibles or got them wrong. It was like watching 2 different players.

I can't remember when in the game it was, but the Rams just stacked the box against the run--they had probably 9 players in and around the box and were clearly set up against it--but Kyler just stuck with the play call and the run was predictably blown up. GOTTA audible out of that play!

From what I could tell it looked like K1 was doing the opposite & changing play to a run.

It’s almost like the league saw the tricks he added to his bag in the offseason, accounted for them, and Kyler was unwilling or unable to adapt.

The team would never bring in a player with so many off-the-field issues as Watson. Period.
Don't be so sure. I'm sure they would've taken Ben Roethlisberger a few back. Also, Watson hasn't been charged by the police with anything as of yet, only civil lawsuits, but that may change by the end of the month.

Besides, whoever does trade for Watson, all will be forgotten after his first big game and win for his new team. That's just how it is.

I don't even think it's that. Kyler pretty much took his legs away in the first 8 games. He rushed for 18 yards per game, mostly in the red zone. He had 3 rushing TD's in the first 3 games then none outside the Chicago game.

I can't see anything defensively that teams did to take away what he was doing well. Which was making good decisions and throwing very accurate balls.

The main difference I can see between pre injury Kyler and post injury Kyler was he was much more confident in the pocket pre injury. He sat back there much more and went through his reads. Post injury it's much more snap, 1st read, bang for 4 yards. Old Kyler. And much more skittish, bailing out sideways when he doesn't need to.

I’m not condoning it as much as commenting on the fact that kylers talk hear while for some unknown reason McCoy is skating. Weird to me.

Usually when you see such a disparate change it’s due to something tangible. I wonder, given kliff’s history, if teams adapt to whatever he’s designed midway through a season and he just can’t counter. Kyler was decisive early in the season but held the ball a looong time the second half of the season. He couldn’t find his guys. Maybe defensed figured out kliff’s offense and learned how to force kyler into running backward out of his protection for disastrous sacks.
