And I'm hoping like he'll they're learning. Believe it or not, at this stage in the season WE ARE A BETTER PASSING TEAM THAN A RUNNING TEAM. In today's NFL, being unpredictable gives you the best shot at winning. Not blindly adhering to some scheme just because. Teams are able to disrupt our running game with ease, and it doesn't look like we're doing much in the way of adjusting.
The funny part is we could be so much better by making only MINOR changes. I'm not saying that we just start chucking it down field on every play. I'm saying it's little stuff. When they key in on the run (which teams are doing all the time now), start throwing some quick outs, slants, bootlegs, screens, whatever it takes to keep them honest. When they start to respect the pass, the run all over their asses.
Why do I get the feeling this little nugget of common sense is all but lost on Jimmy Raye? I hope Sing gave him an earful for those last two drives. They were horrible. Just terrible play calling. I standby my statement that Favre should have never had the chance to stage a comeback against us.
There is no excuse for us failing to run out the clock.
