You obviously don't know what sarcasm is.


It's been going on all season, where have you been? -_-


Yea, because hiding sarcasm in the middle of a rant is the best place for folks to find it.

My take is. Chud is more to blame than the play of our Oline. Diversify the O and it may make a world of difference for the line. Losing Kalil was huge. Having hangman at G was bad enough. Now he is at C. Ouch.

Too many factors to blame the Oline imo. Opposing D's can rush the read option the same way they rush the pass. All out. That does not help your Oline one bit. Diversify and it slows down the D. Not much, but maybe enough to make a difference.

Nutkick Chud back to reality and this team will take off. Let Chud continue, and we are who we are.

Sorry, I am not ready to concede that point. Last week was the first time we tried to run a big boy offense. All in all, we did rather well. Against the Bears #1 D.

Continue that, and we should be alright. Go back to whatever it was we were doing before that game, and we are screwed.


Until we play a big boy Offense consistently. It will be difficult for the Oline. It does not mean they are pathetic. Just being asked to do too things they are not comfortable with.

Good post OP.

Considering the sample size, I'm sure this includes both traditional under center dropback play actions, and play fakes out of the gun.

I had noticed this to an extent earlier this year, so I started tracking how often our passes included a play fake. Although we may do more of it than most teams, I think we could still stand to do more.

Lots of team use a play fake out of the shotgun. Does not matter how well you run the ball. A play fake on 1 and 2 down can be effective. All you need is some hesitation and it is to your advantage.

Under center or the shotgun. A play action fake can help.
