The problems I had with the play was
1 why was he in the shotgun instead of under center where the run pass
Option is more believable.

2 why make it a timing route. It takes away a qb chances to not throw the ball.
The QB is set on getting the ball to a area on time that any slip can cause a int.

Byers, Hangartner, Bell, Gross, and Silatolu sucked at run blocking. We could not move the ball. While I like where Silatolu is heading, the rest suck at run blocking.

Funny to me how at least once per game Cam can bootleg out of a fake handoff and gain 5-10 yds.... but its never late in a game when we're trying to kill a clock?

If the opposing D thinks/knows you're trying to run out the clock, its almost the perfect play - they will jump the fake almost every time.

I'm also appalled that other teams pitch a sweep to an I formation - but we must always hand it off with no lead blocker?

How is it that every other team in the league can check down to a back over the middle, but we can only do it to the flats?

Why do we Armanti Edwards, but you never see him in the Wildcat where the D would have to respect the pass threat?

How come we never ran a reverse?

I have so many questions about this coaching staffs vision and planning - its like we pack a suitcase with just X number of plays and leave the rest of the book in the bldg?

The long pass to Smitty in the end zone on 2nd & 8, with a little over 2mins to go, was even worse. We were already in field goal range, and one more 1st down would've pretty much ended the game. You don't pass the ball at that point in the game.

We were in the exact same situation against the Saints at home last year, and on 3rd & 2 we throw a deep pass to Smitty. SMH

It's like Chud doesn't learn from his mistakes. SMH


What?

Scoring a TD in that situation would have very likely won the game.

I understand that the coaches are to blame for a lot of our problems but just don't get some of the complaints.

If we sit on a lead and run the ball then people complain that we are playing "not to lose". But if they get more aggressive and try to move the ball through the air, then it's a dumb play call. It's like they can do nothing right.

I think the coaches are to blame, yes. But a lot comes down to execution and we can't overlook that.

If he calls three straight runs and we punt, there is a thread about how terrible those calls were.

The play call is not the problem here, it was the execution.

Unfotunately, Smith slipped and Cam couldn't hold the throw. It happens.

For years, John Fox would get a lead and go super conservative as far as play calling. And everyone hated on him for it. So at least it's a change from that, fwiw...



THIS^ We got what we asked for. Now deal with it!
