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.
