The read option sucks. Power running sucks. Common denominator...OL. Nothing will work with this patchwork OL.

I've seen Stew have a good cut back run out of the I formation Sunday. (The one where Olsen threw a good block) What did we do the very second after that? Go right back to the shotgun. This system stinks. All you need to do is look at last year compared to this year, and that is proof enough. Look at all the top rushers this season. Then tell me how many of those guys run out of the read option.

The scheme with this offense was to pretty much make Cam a one man show. I think Rivera and Chud seriously wanted to revolutionize this league with Cam, and they were willing to put everything on the line to look like geniuses. In the end, they come out being seen as looney.


I you think that one decent run out of 11 from under center proves that we can run, that is you opinion.

Just let me repeat the facts:
11 rushes from under center for 23 yards

So if we take away the run that you saw (I think it was for 11):
10 rushes for 12 yard

My opinion, backed but facts, are:
We stink at read option runs.
We stink even worse at runs from under center.

Feel free to disagree.

What about the first few games with a healthy o-line? What about the first game against the Bucs? How many yards did we pick up in that game out of the read option? I don't care how bad the o-line is, this scheme screwed them up big time. Are you in favor of this system?

There's no question the o-line is suffering, but pointing at them in saying this is a major problem in why we are losing, is off the mark. Again look around the league, and tell me how many top rushers run in a spread option offense. The stats highly suggest this system sucks.
