I'd just like to point out...

That handing the ball off to a running back that is just standing there not in motion whatsoever has worked exactly 0 times all year long. By the time the RB has the ball and then begins to move his feet, its too late.

We need more downhill handoffs. Handing the ball off while the RB is actually running works at least some of the time.

Based on watching the Panthers, our best plan would be to just grab some random 6th rounder before each game and start them. Guaranteed 150 yds+ and 2 TDs, and we'd be the first team in MFL history to have 16 different 100 yd. rushers.

This is exactly why the read option will NEVER be successful as a base offense. Takes too long to develo and the defense is too fast. Holes are closed before the RB ever moves.

Yea, the only variations of the option that's worked at all has been the one where Cam rolls out with a flanking RB and the defense has to choose which to go after and Cam can keep it or pitch. And it's worked less and less lately. The other poo, where Cam decides whether to keep it or hand it off or throw it work so seldomly it's mind boggling that we keep running it...

Agreed, the read option was terrible. Doesn't give the back a real chance at making the play. And fwiw, our offense still looked erratic at times. Don't get me wrong, I am glad we won. Losing to the Eagles would have been horribly embarrassing. But early in the game the eagles defense looked horrid. I could have scored on those first two td's. They got a little better as the game went on, they went from horrid to simply inept..

We need to beat some good teams before we can begin to have a positive outlook about the offense and the team.

The option would be a nice to have every once in a while. Gruden is right, but the problem is we just show it way too much. We are 3-8. Now is the time to put Cam behind Center and see what he can do and what these RBs can do.

I just think there are better plays for us to run other than trickery.At some point you have to establish an identity.

The rest of the season should be about development.

This coaching staff will sabotage that because they will try and make a case for not getting fired at the end. They will continue to run "their" offense....

All I ask is that we run at least 40% of our plays from under center. That's not too much to ask, is it?

When we're in the gun, the defense knows it's either going to be a pass or an ineffective run. They can play back or just blitz the hell out of us.

If we insist on being in a gun-like formation, at least switch to a pistol like Washington so the RB can take the ball on the run.
