Great question. I think we were out played. Our offensive line cannot compete with the elite front sevens in the NFL. If we had a great O-Line we convert more third downs and win the game.
i thought shaun hill had enough time during passing plays
our run game sucked, but that has alot to do with the fact teams are run blitzing because of obvious run plays (see morgan block thread)
The run game is unimaginative - yes. But even if we tell the opposition what play we are going to run, we should still execute. And this means we need players on offense that can win match-ups. Pashos/Snyder at RT is a definite weakness.
I think you can maybe get a little better by playing together, but outside of Heitmann and Staley, we have some issues on the O-Line.
True. That said though, Heitmann and Staley got their asses handed to them today s did the rest of the o-line. However, part of that is b/c defenses can EASILY predict the offensive play-calling and can stack the box and play in our backfield ALL game long which makes it appear our o-line and QB is worse then they really are. It's a simple numbers game and we're getting out-numbered and will continue to until Hill is allowed to make audibles.
I agree, the unimaginative play calling does have an effect.
Hill is allowed to audible, though. He wasn't under Martz but he is under Raye. Hill confirmed this in a preseason article.
No kidding? I thought it was confirmed he wasn't allowed to audible esp. in the AZ game. Huh! Have you seen him audible at all? I'll have to go back and check it out. Either way, Single/Raye have REALLY preached him not to lose as opposed to last year under Martz when he was asked to win.
