1st and Goal What Do You Do?

40 posts in this topic

Best answer so far goes to TonyN.

Too much depends on what defense the other team is showing, what type of plays got you down to the red zone, mismatches at various positions, etc.

There is no one right answer unless you know the whole situation.

Depending on what yard line and other factors of the game..such as if the pass is working, the run is working, or both....there are different play calls (obviously).

Sometimes in the goal-to-go situations the problem is a crowded field. How about four wide with stew in the backfield and run a draw play. Get them to play more DB's and run a lead draw of some sort.

If that doesn't get in..depending on the situation..I believe you line up with two TE's and a FB and try to power it in.

Finally..by this point it may be third and goal from within the five..you run a hard play-action bootleg allowing cam to roll to the right and give him the option to throw or run.

If the pass is working all game the draw may get it to the yard line and a QB sneak might work. If the the power run is working that may get it in, or the hard bootleg will give CAM an easy run to the front corner or a wide open Olsen.

IMO.

Just let Stew pound the rock 3 times and he's gonna get those 5 yards every time

Cam seems to fumble a lot suddenly. I say put Hartsock in at FB and let Tolbert run it in behind him

Jumbo package to say the least with that backfield.

Give it to Tolbert. He's strong, fat and will bulldoze the opposition that close to the line.

Also it would be nice to feel like there was an actual reason to sign him. Not just because he really wanted to come here.

Ok this is just a hypothetical question. But would you feel more comfortable with Cam trying to run it in 3 times, jstew or tolbert trying to run it in 3 times, or pass 3 times. I got to admit, I would feel better and feel like we had a better chance to score if Cam was running it. Thoughts?

What is the distance? Are we talking first and goal from the ten, or the three, the seven????
