Replay observerations

I am the first to admite that I have given the coaches an easier time tham they might deserve.

However, about the pick-6 after watching a replay:

1. Smith tripped on a similair pattern in the first half (the ball was not thrown to him so noone noticed)

2. Jennings had jumped the route on an eariler almost intercepting it.

So the coach should have know this was a higher risk play this day on this field and not call it in a keep that ball at all cost situation.

Running:

Our running game totally stalled in the 2nd half. Sure we broke an 8-17 yards run a couple of times but it was at least 3 runs for no gain for every one of those. And all this from power running formations.

Our last drive:

We got really lucky on this one with the penaly on Cam (low hit), it does not effect the play and should have been 3 and 9 if the defender doesn´t give it to us.

I agree with your observations, but regarding our run game, it is something we just have to stick with for a while until it gets going. We've erred way too much toward the passing game and it's time to have some patience with the run.

The only other thing I'd add is we still are in the shotgun formation way too much.

What I am saying is: The, main, problem is not the running style or defense. It is that we do not adjust when the other team changes what is not working for them.

Or that our players are not good enough once their weaknesses are found.

Or most likely a combination...

Rivera and McDermott don't seem to realize that Cover 4 works but it should be situational and shouldn't be called 5 plays in a row.

Bottom line: if we don't let them march down the field at the end of the game with the same play over and over again, we win.

When a play call (specifically a pass play) is not successful people tend to only consider the option that was executed. So to say that that was a bad play call ignored the fact that there were multiple other receivers out on routes at the same time. There may be a primary receiver on a any given play but the success of the play is based on the proper execution of the entire formation. After the fact, it's too easy to judge the call by narrowing your focus to the options the players chose at the time.

Cam had a problem last game locking onto Smith way too much.

Our run game stalled a few years ago.

If they dont give us the penalty on 2 and 9 on our last drive they, most likely, don´t have to march down the field...
