is going to define our season. Since we are going to be a running team many would assume we will call for a fair amount of runs on third and short. I'm gonna suggest that we will not be all that successful if we try this. Why? Because unlike the cowboys with emmet smith running behind kevin gogan and larry allen with a lead block by johnson we just dont have anyone on the o-line who can absolutely dominate even when the other team knows were gonna run. The difference between a td and a fg on the 1 yd line will be our play call on 3rd down. What im saying is we will get stuffed on plays where the other team puts 11 men on the line often enough that it will affect our season. So play action plays that threaten gore up the middle then end up a bootleg or a pass to the tight end or pass to a wide receiver that went in motion then runs parallel to the goal line(how many tds did jerry rice score on that play?) are the plays we better be practicing and have down pat. Some teams will have undersized d-lines that we will dominate like the seahawks but others wont. we should be prepared to run 60% of our third and short plays as play action pass plays unless we have already proved in the game that our opponet really cant stop us running. If you disagree with me, what % of runs would you call at the goal line? on third and short?
