I'll actually agree with you there Joe, and by no means am I letting the predictable play-calling escape. However, if you're a coach and you're saying we're going to run "x" play or be an "x"-type offense, your guys need to execute that and if they can't someone needs to tell the truth and say "these guys can't do that." This is what's most frustrating -
Don't say that "it made sense at the time..." Giving a HOF QB the ball back with 1:26 doesn't make sense to me. We did the same thing in Arizona and if not for a fluke sack, Warner completes that pass. This time Justin Smith gets blocked and the ball is thrown.
Scott needs to get over his issue with paying OGs or draft better ones because they're not able to run the type of offense his coach would like to have.
That's what it comes down to. We want to power between the Tackles. To do that, you need Guards that are very very good. We want to pass less, therefore our Tackles don't need to be great.
