We were so obvious that we were gonna run that it allowed even the Cards to be obvious that they were gonna run blitz. If that's the case, a audible has to be called and a quick pass needs to be thrown.
If we continue to think that we can just go into a game, tell the other team, we are gonna run behind "X" and go at "O", it's going to be a fail.
Just an observation. It was a ROAD game, with a very loud, hostile crowd. Singletary's 1st commandment is "Total Ball Security". Risking too many audibles in such an environment, when everyone may not hear the play change, would seem not to be prudent.
Look for more audible activity in home games.
Remember that Hill loves audibles and, one of the reasons that he didn't shine in Martz' wide-open offense, was that Martz did not allow audibles. Heck, Hill didn't even have hot reads until Singletary became HC and insisted that Martz give his QB better tools, like hot reads.
