View Full Version : Who did the offensive play calling today?

Was it Childress?

If so, we need to give it back to Bevell. Despite the fumbles last week, the offense was moving the ball and they just seemed a lot more confident. Today the play-calling was unimaginative and oh-so-predictable. The QB draw on 4th and 1 when your O-line was playing so poorly was just bad.

Todays offense reminded me so much of the first two games where we shackled TJ with a dumbed down playbook. Was it an (very poor) attempt at reducing turnovers?

Not sure what your talking about, their were a couple times where they let Tarvaris sling it down the field. Bevell is still calling the plays.

I think it may have been more the overall execution than the playcalling.
11 guys have assigments on every play, and when 2 or 3 guys don't complete their assignment that can make any play look ugly.

Yeah, but that was in the 4th quarter when we had to score points and the backups were on. I wasn't sure so just wanted to check. It certainly felt a lot more conservative than the last 3 games.

Agreed

I wish we did more end arounds and things like that.. But otherwise I don't think we can do much more

Our line wasn't blocking.. So it came down to can T-jack escape.. Most times he didnt have a chance

Then it comes down to the RBs making blocks.. They missed alot

Then it comes to can the WRs make a good grab.. And they did sometimes when Jackson couldnt get a great throw in there

I think the play calling was ok.. They were shutting down AP for awhile.. We were kinda limited

so lineing AD up wide, motioning him in and giving him a handoff like an end around doesn't count as creative?

I think the reason we didn't do AS well (still fairly good compared to early in the season, i mean 230+ passing and 100+ rushing from AD isn't exactly shabby) was because TJ was feeling the pressure, he handled himself fairly well for a big pressure game, but you could tell at times he was nervous.

I commend TJ for playing as well as he did with all the blitzers that were coming at him.

Excellent post my friend.

You know, I don't think it's so much the play calling.
I think we had a couple chances to take shots down the field, that were missed.
If I can criticize T-Jack in one area, it would be that his first read is what should be the check down receiver.
I've noticed it a few times since he's been back as our starter.
A lot of times, especially against the Giants, it's because he just doesn't have enough time.
And at other times, it just shows that he's still a growing QB.
He'll continue to get better hopefully, and look to take more shots down the field.


Let it be known that I've been really happy with T-Jack's play overall.
I just know he has a ways to go.

well bleed, that was one play?
alot of the first half we were playing with a one wr set and allowing the giants to send all those guys with out the fear that we were gonna make them pay in the secondary.
we had bobby wade matched up against a corner and then 2-3 tight ends.
we tried to setup how many screens in the first half and almost got jackson sacked every time or throwing a pick?
they improved as the game went on, but the initial gameplan was not good, and we still kept on pumping the run right into blitzes for 3 quarters.
we had that end and around, and 2 pitches to peterson, and that was about as creative as it got yesterday.
not exactly what i saw the dolphins do in their win and in game, yesterday.
we didn't really have any answers on defense either.
we won and i'm glad, but we got pushed around and outsmarted for most of the day.

Yeah, alternate every play between a flea flicker and a hail mary....I heard it works in Madden.

Actually, we might have just the right personnel for a flea flicker.
Who else in the NFL will draw as much attention once he has the ball in his hands than Peterson.
Berrian has the speed to beat one on one coverage, and Jackson has the big arm.
I wouldn't mind seeing them try that once.
I think it could work.
Once Peterson has the ball, the defense focuses on him, that second or two he has the ball takes a step and pitches back to TJack, Berrian should have no problem beating his man.
