    Hue Jackson, for showing up with his team to play the Pats for Brady’s first game back. Fatal mistake.

    As a Ravens fan, I’d like to write in a fake punt w/50 mph gusting winds……punters don’t have arms built for that kind of weather.

    The Rams took a silly risk but it least it had a chance of paying off. The Jets punting pretty much guaranteed they were going to lose.

    LOL, Of course it was the J.E.T.S. …JETS JETS JETS!!!

    You play to win the game (except the jets, jets, jets!).

    In the spirit of recognizing ineptitude, incompetence, and just epic failures, may we present the:

    “Honorary Jets Coaching Blunder Award”

    @tsuscrumhalf curious, did you watch the game because they didn’t run the play you described.

    They faked a field goal on the 15 yard line.

    I’m doing a write-in for Ravens fake FG attempt.

    Bengals punted while down 21 in the 3rd. That whole game was a coaching blunder though.

    Fisher is not a good coach; however, I don’t think the fake punt should be a consideration here. I much rather lose with my coach making aggressive calls, than making y wussy calls!

    I hear ya, but the aggressive call would have been to go for it on fourth down. A fake punt was the bonehead call.

    What, no love for Mike McCoy not going for the win on fourth and one and going for a field goal you knew was going to go wrong.

    Yep, I was there. The winds were gusting like crazy. Hats, hot dog wrappers & all kinds of debris were flying all over! Tucker is an amazing kicker. In gusting winds, he shouldn’t be attempting to throw a ball. (Ahhhh, now I see. I said punt, meant FG)

    Panthers throwing on the 2 yd line on 1st down w a backup QB.

  16. magikskillz says: Oct 10, 2016 11:45 PM

    Hey at least my Chargers stayed in the game until the end. Sure they find new ways to choke every year. But at least the games are competitive until the end. It’s better than being a Browns fan because at least you know you had a chance at winning

  17. carloswlassiter says: Oct 10, 2016 11:47 PM

    This is not even close – the Jets decision to punt was a surrender. At least the other guys were trying to win.

  18. cheapseater says: Oct 10, 2016 11:49 PM

    Biggest coaching blunder of the week is not firing Gus Bradley at the bye. He’s not the answer. Jags should be 3-1.

  19. playsanity says: Oct 10, 2016 11:51 PM

    Easily Ron Rivera. Running the ball on 3rd down instead of throwing it to continue a drive with 2 1/2 minutes left. Instead we lose.

  20. mickvv says: Oct 11, 2016 12:44 AM

    Mike McCoy’s decision to kick a field goal with 4th and half a yard to go with two minutes left in Oakland. Get the first down and win the game. Of course, coaches always take the safe road so they don’t end up on ridiculous lists like this.

    Mike McCarthy for stealing food in the players looker room, based on what the packer fans said on the Vikings story it’s the reason why little erin has been off target. He’s hungry during games, he usually eats a Snickers during halftime but supposedly coach McArthy ate that too.

    Here the Brownies go again. This losing cycle repeats itself every three or four years.
    First, they will fire head coach. Not enough wins is usual excuse.
    Second, they will have a fire sale, and sell anyone from previous administration that has marketable skills. This year it’s Thomas, and maybe Gordon.
    Finally, they will hire a new coach, who will draft players that fit his liking/scheme and again restart the rebuilding process.

    When is someone gonna wake up, and figure out that experienced players mentoring rookies, is essential key to success. Dumber that dirt. No wonder they call it the mistake by the lake.

    Ohhhhh Noooooooooooooo!!!!

    Oh wait, this wasn’t the draft. This isn’t Radio City Music Hall. It was just a dream. Phew. Time to wake up…

    Jets! Jets! Jets! (Sorry Todd. Belichick was last week. It happens to the best of them.)

    Fisher blew it by not going for on 4th down at the Bills 5. Kicked a FG and still needed a TD to win. He was betting on a defensive stop and a drive down the field for a TD. The way they were playing neither was likely. The fake punt was just the icing on the Failure Cake.
