Part of it starts with Lombardi. We need to be better on 1st and 2nd downs. 

I would put a large part of it on him. He insisted on sticking with the short passing game. We had quite a few very manageable 3rd and 4th downs, all of which we failed to convert with a short pass. Baltimore was shutting down the short passing game.

They basically were forcing us to either throw deep to intermediate or, run the ball. And Lombardi refused to do either. We kept trying to throw short. It also to be fair, was a rough day for Herbert. He was just a little off on everything he did. His throws were just a little high, his throws were just a little too far. Which also made the short passing hard.

What really kind of concerns me more than anything else is the team just looked flat. Almost as they were completely disinterested. Or looking forward to the bye, or anything else. That to me is just not something a good team should do. Or something a new head coach should want to see. I'm watching a Denver/Raider's game where either team shows significantly more energy than we did all game.
