I've defended the read-option as a solid, viable PLAY in our playbook. I do agree we need to expand and get away from some of the tricky, long-developing gimmicks like the double screens and the fake reverses every game. A trick play every few games is fun and it WILL work if it is executed...but trying 1 or 2 each game gets you nowhere. We need to get back to some more conventional stuff alongside our shotgun package. We went more under center this past week and we had some success, but the OL still isn't run-blocking too well. That needs to improve. If we can't run, we're screwed. Not because Cam can't handle it. It's because NO QB can operate when he is the ONLY weapon being utilized. Receivers can't get open if you don't have the play-action to work with, and in order to get play-action working, you have to be able to run. We need more roll outs. We need more consistency under center with our run game/quick passing game. These are things that need to be in place for ANY QB. Cam is above average as a QB and stellar as a football player. Don't lean on that though. Utilize everything and allow him to take games over by setting him up for that. Chud just needs to get his head out of his ass.
