I think both sucks. You are putting to much on the QB plate having to control the pass game and running game. It takes away the attitude of the Oline with all these side ways and misdirection runs. Most Oline like to go straight a head. And Chud fug that up making the read option a base offense.

Mixed it in last year the 2nd half....worked great.

Washington mixes it in.....works great.

Anything will look bad if you do it too much and/or with inefficient bodies. Shanny runs it and even commented on overdoing it.

I don't mind you mixing it in but once you see it isn't working don't call it anymore in that game. I still want Cam to run a traditional offense like Freeman did today. Under center wearing a team defenses down.

I remember like weeks 1, 2, 3 early on this season when the read option was failing and people were fighting with me trying to defend it, etc.

It was horse poo offense then and it is now. It will NEVER work in the NFL at any volume. NEVER.

Not true, mixed it in last year.....offense was great.

Look at RGIII's stat line today mixing it in....and on the season. RGIII completed 14 of 15 passes for 4 TDs. 12 carries for 80 rushing as well.

With anything, you do it too much or with bad talent for what you are attempting and it won't work.

We should stop.....not bc the read option can't work mixed in but bc our OL is so bad our RBs struggle even getting back the the line of scrimmage

Or as a play caller your not good at it and call it at the wrong time. Chud has lost his feel for the game and of his personal. Since the read option need so much to work even when you mix it in we need not use it until we have the pieces to run it. Not to mention the whole Jab step is hurting Cam mech.

I don't pay attention to the browns but on the surface this situation sounds eerily similar to chud and DA's second year together.

Shanahan runs the same offense he ran during denver's super bowl years. There's always a man open. It's usually a short pass. If and when the defense bites down on that short pass, then there's a deep man open. It's a simple but effective offense. The fact that RGIII can run just gives Shanahan an extra toy that he can play with. RGIII rolling out ALWAYS has a wide open receiver in front of him. Like clockwork.


Compare that to our offense, where everything funnels through Cam, and our OL and receivers are never sure who and where they need to block. We usually don't have that underneath route. When we do, it's not fooling anybody and is usually overthrown.
