Looks like those two weeks were wasted by the O. Miscommunications galore. Is it just me, or does one of the announcers have one of those “famous announcers school” voices? Verse and Lang are a nice pair DEs...maybe they should try the 480 lb guy though.

Three times complete miscommunication with WR and QB. Wasted down for a team that can't move the ball.

The main issue I have is the KO return and Punt return teams.  Every week weak play has affected the games.  Gave them field position and our offense has their back against the wall!  Even when we then stop other team's offense they have field position.  Field position wins and loses games all the time.  We have been giving it up all year!!!!!  That and stupid 15 yard penalties [or any penalties] - many in key situations.  That puts outrageous pressure on our defense - they are on the field a LOT; AND our offense who gets the ball inside out 20 a lot.

Since he was blamed for a lot in prior years, kudos to Joe Bernard on having his defense ready. Not so much for Will Fiacchi, who has a lot to straighten out with his receivers.

Greg Gattuso's Danes are dead last in the CAA, the only remaining winless team. Gattuso is now 19-35 in the CAA. This season is over, virtual lock at this point that this will be another sub .500 season with 6 CAA games left. They would need to win 5 out of 6 to have a winning season and 4 out of 6 to have a chance at .500. I think based on what we've seen, there is zero chance of that happening and that should spell a coaching change. The experiment is over....This team is impossible to watch, offense is absolutely dreadful, they can't even figure out what the play is. Three times today in the first half the WR did their own thing and QB did his. Offensive line is offensive, run game almost non existent. Special teams is brutal....penalties at the worst time. 

This is a bad bad undisciplined team.

Garbage team and garbage coach.

Someone broke JUC because he looks like 10% of what he looked like in 2019. Either that or the Monstars came and stole his football talent.

Receivers have no idea what routes to run.

Staff can't manage games (took a few unnecessary time outs).

FIRE GATTUSO AND CLEAN HOUSE!

With the way the defense was playing, this was a winnable game. The offense underwhelmed. Special teams coverage and return performance was dreadful. Not too many penalties, but one or two in key spots. A couple of inexcusable pass drops that were costly. Difficulty getting plays in. Wide receivers and JUC on different pages of the playbook. Four games into the season those things are indicative of either massive breakdowns in coaching or terrible recruiting. In either case, the fault lies with the coaching regime. Kick/punt return yards 99-20 in the Hen’s favor. JUC 40% completion rate? No back other than KM got a carry? Their third string QB was almost unstoppable as a runner? GG seems to say that drops hurt them. Yeah, but what game was he watching? The problems with this team are systemic. Bottom of the CAA...in the mud. Let me say once more, that Verse and Lang are a heck of a pair of bookend DEs. Likely the best combo we’ve ever had. Speed off the edge, strength and totally disruptive in the backfield. I hope we can keep them.
