Pilates run was outside the tackles, not inside, and it wasnt a read option anyways. Pilares was getting the ball regardless of the read.

This is what I'm saying that I think you're missing. Tampa's DEs never had to worry about containing Cam because that assignment went to their cornerbacks, so they never played Cam, they always crashed down to play the running back, so if Stew had played he wouldnt have had anything, because the Ends came crashing down.

Cam should've kept the ball and run, but again, if he would have, the Corner would've been right there to make the tackle before Cam had a chance to get going.

Yeah I get that we were trying to get Williams outside, and it would've actually worked, but our WRs couldn't get a hand on the corner who had contain.

The Bucs game was all on the playcalling and blocking.

And when Stewart gets hurt every other week we'd be worrying about drafting another RB instead of fixing the team.

RB's are a dime a dozen, look at how good Poole and Smith looked in preseason. Someone good easily replace Williams.

No RB fits when our o-line is playing like sh!t.

Thousand times this. Blocking was not existent Sunday. You just block a little bit and he can take it to the house.

Only Williams took them outside....only his were stuffed.

I know this thread is into beating a dead horse territory, but it has to be pointed out that DWill only ran the read option a couple of times against Tampa, and the 1st one would have been a nice gain had Louis Murphy made his block.

Now, I'm not lobbying for seeing more of it, just pointing out how small the sample size was and that the 1st one easily could have been a win for the running game.

It hurts me to watch last year offense compared to the preview we got last week.

this is a silly myth compounded every year when people watch preseason highlights of johnny no-namers busting out seventy yard touchdown runs and assume that these sorts of plays vs. third-stringers will happen against starting-caliber NFL defenses

Look at the platoon of RB's the Saints** have, RB's are a dime a dozen. Are you telling me that's just sheer luck? Chris Ivory? undrafted, Pierre Thomas? undrafted, Arian Foster? undrafted, Legarette Blount? undrafted, BenJarvus Green-Ellis? undrafted, Isaac Redman? undrafted, Jacquizz Rodgers? 6th rounder.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
