Anyone else miss seeing a run game that features a blocking fullback clearing the way for a tailback the instant the ball is snapped? A play that takes .02 seconds to develop, the faster the better?

cam struggles with being under center.

that's the only logical reason for abandoning something so simple, yet effective.

Don't know why we can't line up this way, since we seem insistent to have Deangelo run inside the tackles anyway for the most part.

I miss it - there has always been a reason that college trick plays and options never worked for long in the NFL. Its great to have that as a wrinkle in your offense to throw off a D-line, but it should not be your staple formation.

The way we fake hand off on pass plays only allows the defense time to get closer to Cam.

Not good when your QB and RB are fighting each other for control of the ball every play.

So yeah I miss it. Alot!

that falls on Chud. we have ran the option more this year, than we did in all of last year. i dont understand why someone would think Cam struggles with playing under center when he did it plenty last year. you cannot run a read option with JPP on the outside, or run that same option read fake on passing downs when teams know you are passing. why leave JPP 1on1 with anybody?

I miss all the pro formations. Tbh I think Chud may be the new Mike Martz. A OC that thinks his players have to fit his plan. Not the other way around.

Problem with the read option is if you have disciplined
DE it won't work. Game plan should have changed after the first quarter.

and once the know the read-option is not working ... you go back to the Power I and pound the ball. Chud does not seem to understand that.

Agreed, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to send DWill up the gut to get crushed and Tolbert to the edge. I mean WTF, DeAngelo is so fugging dangerous out in space and a guy that is 5'9" 245 lbs. like Tolbert should be able to bulldoze his way up the gut, yet our coaches do the exact opposite during the fugging game. Guess it really doesn't matter, the way our OLine was playing we could have had fugging Barry Sanders and it wouldn't have made a difference. I sure as hell hope the embarrasment I and ALOT of others are feeling is 10 fold to our players. They've gotta know that they were the laughing stock of the NFL last night. Pure gutlessness from our players and emotionless coaches who look like they couldn't coach a pop warner team = the disaster we all had to endure last night. They better get it together QUICK! Unfortunately, I dunno if this team has the heart to do that.

If we didn't have the personnel to do it, I'd understand staying away from the "I" so much. But we do, and that's what makes this all so baffling.

Further, I don't have a problem with the read-option being a part of the run game, but it can't be *the* run game.
