So he was to blame for Moore being an idiot. Ok.

How much influence did he have in bringing carter and Harris along? He's the scapegoat.

yeah, this is pretty dumb. our secondary overachieved this year, our young players developed, and our depth was effective. either coaching matters, or it doesn't. if it does, you keep this guy. the goal is to win games, not flex your muscles in front of stupid fans.

Chris Harris has always been a good player and was a team captain at Kansas. Carter sucks, and was walking as Jacoby Jones caught the ball.

i thought it was Carter on the play covering jones but i wasn't sure. wasn't able to watch the game, just highlights and most of them show only the 2 clearly.

I'd like Todd Bowles to replace him if he gets let go in Philly.

Damn the Raiders for not being the Raiders and firing Allen right away. Would have welcomed him back as secondary coach.

He may be a scapegoat, but well...maybe that was just an excuse to get rid of him. Another thing on Rahim's conscience!

This looks like JDR's call.

It's been a few days since the game and I am sure JDR and Fox went over the tape and saw something they didn't like, and maybe there was a breakdown that was Milus fault.

It wouldn't be based on one play and possibly one game. If that was the case, we won't be seeing your Bruins player next season. This goes back before the playoffs and I would have no news of why.

JDR wants his guys on the staff. Fox is allowing at least one of his coordinators choose his staff. I like it.

I was just speculating but hopefully this is a signal that JDR is going to change up the secondary. I wouldn't be surprised if there's going to be a new scheme for the secondary that involves champ bailey not being on an island anymore.

i'm curious to know if maybe there were some philosophical differences with he and Del Rio as well as the gaffe by Moore.
but once again, why was the DB who was initially covering Jones 6-7 yards away from him and Moore the closest player?

That was Tony Carter. I knew he would fail us in the playoffs, and he did.

Good move. The secondary laid an egg when it mattered the very most. Getting beat for 3 deep balls...when your opponent had trouble getting 1st downs is unforgivable!

Good riddance!

Hale Elway/Bowlen for pulling the trigger!!!

Don't forget about the missed TD Flacco had when he overthrew to a very wide open deep WR. That was a for sure TD if Flacco makes a decent throw. They beat us over the top so many times it's not even funny.

You either fire the player or the coach in this situation. Now at least, Rahim Moore knows that his stupidity on the field has repercussions off the field. Hopefully, he grows the **** up. And Milus deserves it anyway. That was a piss poor performance. I still wonder why JDR didn't call a time out prior to that play. Did he not see where the secondary was lined up? Everybody and his brother knew a Hail Mary was coming. Where's JDR's flogging?

everyone on the damn team deserves some blame. but JDR did a masterful job turning around this defense in one season. the improvement started with Allen but JDR took it to a whole 'nother level of improvement.
we need to infuse more talent into the D though. the MLB and SS(i know Moore is a FS and blew it) issues were exposed greatly in this game(secondary CB as well)
