1 - This team is mental. Has back breaking, head scratching penalties at really unfortunate times. Just stupid stuff. The team is undisciplined.
2 - Coaching is poor on both sides of the ball. Bronco was the king of bend don’t break. Tuiaki is the king of bend and then eventually break. His vanilla defense does little to make big plays, pressure QBs, force turnovers, create big plays for loss, and ultimately get off the field quickly. The offense cannot move the ball efficiently. Combine the offense and defense’s ineptitudes and you have a team that loses time of possession battles by wide margins. Late in games, the defense is gassed and folds.
