A couple of other things that I hate about the coaching (and these all go back to last year):
1) Felton shouldn't be returning punts. Just put someone back there who can field the ball cleanly since we don't have an explosive returner.
2) Have your best players on the field in key situations. Far too often, Chubb, Garrett, and others aren't even on the field in critical situations.
1) I don't get this. During the week, they picked up a punt returner off another teams' practice squad that was #4 in the league in return yardage yet he doesn't play in favor of Felton?
Was listening to "Movin' the Chains" on Sirius XM earlier last week and a valid point was brought up about these coaches. They want to win but they want to win "their way" as if to put style points on it with an "I told ya so." Stefanski has to know that they are much more successful running the ball yet they insist on passing. Same here with Felton. Keep putting him out there to prove you're right. It's stupid.
In this next game, if the defense gets lit up, this is no longer a defensive problem, it's a Stefanski problem. He'll need to gut the defensive coaching room. Woods is getting a lot of shit, and rightfully so, but where's the defensive backs coach during all of this? It's his unit that looks like a sandlot team.
