Postgame Haiku, Vol. 21

Man, that really sucked.
Seemed like the team left their brains
In Annapolis.

  1. The silver lining
    as bad as we played tonight
    lost by just thirteen

    don’t know if that’s a tribute to our “gumption” or just a damning of pitt/BE football

  2. suck, it did
    does this mean
    no votes this week?

  3. HAIKU

  4. This game was so bad
    I watched Fletch 2 all throughout
    It was better

  5. sorry, just delete (5)
    I would save you the trouble (7)
    but do not know how (5)

  6. Now that’s a 5-star haiku

  7. Pitt is pretty good
    Not as good as we made them
    Now the season starts

  8. Poor Special Teams Play.
    Flustered Passing, Dropped catches,
    Awesome Goal Line Stand.

  9. Disappointing loss.
    Team could have played better, but
    Move on to next week.

  10. It seems obvious to me that Navy has forgotten what got them to the bowl games and all those CIC trophies…. running the ball.
    I have always believed that Navy’s big picture football strategy (that works) went something like this: We can’t recuit NFL size players, so we go after speed, and use an offense and defensive scheme that plays to that strength. On offense, that is the tripple option. Running the option effectively is an equalizer. You eat up the clock not allowing your opponent on the field. If they don’t have the ball, they can’t score (as long as you don’t turn it over). By playing triple option football you rack up the rushing yards, eat the clock, and deny the othter guy a chance to score. You also get their defense sucking wind by the third quarter, while your defense is fresh. Air Force and Army have finally realized this and are doing better now that they have opted for the option offense.
    This year we have what may be the best passing arm at Navy in years. That said, let me say just because I have a Vette does not mean I drive through the city streets at 160 mph. Just because Ricky has a great arm does not mean Navy should be throwing the ball 20 times a game because a passing game reqires more than a QB witha great arm. When I see Navy drop back to pass and the Guard gets pancaked by someone who outweighs him by 100 lbs on the way to sacking Ricky, it tells me Navy is trying to pass too much.
    Tonight’s 129 rushing yards is the result of not only too many passes but spending too much time on the passing game in practice. I can tell because of all the missed assignments when they tried to run. There is only so much time in each practice, and if you don’t have down pat what got you to the promised land (the running game) then you are going to be forced into throwing the ball more…. somethng the offiensive line is no designed to do.
    Let’s hope Coach Ken gets things back on track for a tune up against WK before the Lighting Bolts come to town. If they can’t get back to what turned the program around it could be bad early October in Annapolis.

  11. starting games too slow
    blocking needs much improvement
    no more dumb mistakes

  12. lol

    and it begins!

    “We need to run more!”

  13. .PS – And a BZ for Buddy Green and his defense. Whatever they are paying him they should double it. Allowed only 6 points the second half against Pitt, and pitch 3+ shut out quarters against La Tech….

  14. Re: “we need to run more” … check out the one comment to Wags’ last in-game post

  15. Can’t run the football
    Passing did not work too well
    Navy loses game

  16. Critical mistakes again
    inconsistant O and ST’s
    Thank god for WK

  17. Navy at Pittsburgh
    Mismatch or overhyped Pitt?
    Tech-Miami II

  18. 3 years in a row
    Navy starts at one-and-two.
    We’ll get rolling now.

  19. on tinyyoutube, no one can see
    your team play like pooh

    Radio was much better
    High tech off; listen

  21. We need to run more and fire Coach!!!

  22. Nostra-mike-us warned
    how often the O gets sacked
    when having to pass

  23. First comes the big stick
    then make way for the big strike
    but in that order

  24. The offense did suck
    while the special teams did blow
    and the defense hummed

  25. Coach Ken and IJ
    see how they don’t run (enough)
    Dog sees two blind mice?

  26. lol

    anon likes him some haiku!

  27. Yeah, booey. Now lets get healthy at the expense of W. Kentucky

  28. On the right side of the screen on The Birddog’s main page, there is a poll asking which road game you’d most like to attend this year. Let me advise all of you to NEVER answer “Pitt.” The stadium is boring, the crowd is annoying, and the in-stadium PA announcer is so painful to listen to, you almost want to jump off of one of Pittsburgh’s 1000 bridges, just to put yourself out of your misery.

    Go Navy!

  29. Pitt was the pits
    Navy got sucked in

  30. No breakdown from you?
    We need video replay…
    Oh, what will we do?

  31. While I have no life,
    I do have a paying job.
    It eats up my time.

  32. My time at Bancroft
    But 5 basic responses
    Don’t recall that one

  33. I was a bad Mid.
    But you get what you pay for–
    Start a collection?

  34. Back off the Birddog
    His knowledge comes when needed
    Not at your demand!

  35. Not making demands
    Just a recommendation
    for “No excuse, sir”

  36. Beating this week’s spread
    of 28 and a hook
    Will lighten the mood

  37. Bad Mid? No such thing
    your service footed the bill
    your paid with respect

  38. make that “you”re” paid with respect

  39. I do like haiku,
    But it’s not the best platform
    For telling a joke.

  40. Knowledge needed now
    We were awful versus Pitt
    Screw your other job

  41. Well, long story short,
    It was as bad as it looked.
    Details to follow.

  42. “Tongue in cheek” also
    Is not very apparent
    When using Haiku

  43. Quit the job and post!
    You will always know for sure
    That we love you, man!

  44. All in jest, Mike. We all appreciate what you do.

  45. I know it’s a joke. I also know I’m taking forever, though.

  46. Remember Adam
    Allowed such interference
    Now we miss Pitch Right

  47. Don’t know what to do
    Feeling really sad and blue
    Need Pitt broken down!

  48. No pressure Mike!

  49. It’ll be up tonight. I did the videos last night, so I just need to do the write-up.

  50. Takes time to find good
    In the crappy game we played
    Mike is still looking….

  51. West Kentucky stinks;
    Saturday should be filled with
    Joy unlike Pittsburgh.

    So next week we will
    More patiently await film
    Of fun game highlights.

  52. Just bustin your hump Mike-that darn “work” thing always gets in the way!

  53. holy crap you guys
    i know i am unemployed
    but what’s your excuse?

    working stiffs should not
    have enough time in the day
    for all these haiku

  54. Duck orders a drink…
    “How do you want to pay, sir?”
    “Put it on my bill.”
