    I know Im not the only person who thought we'd see Loggains tone it down some for Fitzpatrick in his first start this year.

    Why the hell did we throw so many times knowing Fitzpatrick is a wildcard?????? I could be wrong here but I dont think Fitz even completed a single pass the entire 1st quarter, whats going on with our play calling??

    What choice did the Titans have after it was obvious the running game was totally ineffective?

    completely agree here. The Chiefs knew we were running the ball, stopped the run and we had to pass. We hardly passed the ball in the first half and our run game was completely shut down. Frustrating

    Loggains is a moron, plain and simple.

    But he could have excuses:

    1. CJ sucks.
    2. Offensive line sucks.

    That's about it.

    But yeah... backup QB's first game in forever- vs the best D in the NFL (especially passing), and he's got him throwing the ball nonstop to WRs that couldn't get open all day.


    Probably the same logic as to why he runs CJ up the middle every run play.
    GoT and JCBRAVE high five this.

    Well Ill say this; a bunch of 2-yard runs beats a dozen dropped balls, 2 INT's and 3 sacks...

    Terrible game plan by Loggains. You can not trust Ryan Fitzpatrick to win you a game, he gambles far too much.

    Any time you take the ball from Fitz is a win in my eyes. That guy is not good enough to get to throw so much. Going into that game I looked under every rock on Earth trying to uncover something good about Fitz, but he's just flat out bad.

    I'm sure the game plan didn't call for that many passes. The team was simply reacting to what was apparent on the field: that the running game was totally ineffective.

    Not sure it's fair to criticize the coaching staff here. They were attempting to adapt. It just didn't work. It won't always work.

    I agree, I am not saying he is great but when KC knows we are going to run, you have to attempt something to get a first down. There is no creativity on our offense, no gadget or trick plays. Would have loved to see a double reverse but no , we run the ball in to the d line. Sometimes you just have to take your chances as bad as they might seem
