Gilbride has had proven success but lets face it we won superbowls because we held the pats to under 18 points. thats how we won them both!! go rewind the tapes and have a look at the first 3 quarters of offense. Gilbride has had the benefit of a good d that forces turnovers

Screen pass on 3rd and 20 despite just missing Nicks and Cruz on 2 deep balls. Horrendous call. Run, run, pass the possession prior. Terrible calls. I dunno that it falls solely on Gilbride, but he certainly didn't put us in good position.
Kevin Gilbride, I have been saying has used up his worthiness here with us. He has no more tricks in the bag and we need a new OC for next season with fresh plays, strong convictions to keep drives alive and be an all around OC. as much as I dislike the Pats, they have the necessary combo to play great every season.
their players play great all the time, the coaches are hardcore. Steelers are the same. They have both great organizations that perform.
our OC and DC are used up. when teams know what we are going to do, THAT's the issue. I see the team not trusting this coaching staff at all. boley is a great player and he gave up. that speaks volumes.
enjoy the crow coaches, need some collard greens or BBQ sauce to go with your crappy performances?

A couple of times this year the screen or the handoff has worked for us in similar situations, but the problem with this team at times is that they like to go back to the same well too often. Gets a little predictable after a while.
