1st Quarter against Houston!!!

I think in two weeks our first quarter or first couple of drives against Houston should be 80-90% pass. We have to slow down Mario Williams and there pass rush.

At least try to show them that we have some passing ability and maybe in the second half it will pay off. Slow down there pass rush and open up some lanes for Gore.

Every game our first series is either a run up the middle for no gain or a play action for a short 5 yard pass.

It is pretty much guaranteed houston will stack the box first play. Hard play action and hit Jones or CRabtree for a deep crossing pattern, hopefully those two can create seperation because the others can't, or even get VD involved right away something down field though 15+ yards.

You dont slow down a pass rush by passing 90% of the time
nvm my reply was stupid lol

3rd down: pass for 6 yards
4th down: punt.

The Jimmy Raye experience at it's best!

2+3= 5
5+6= 11

1st and 10 not a punt

where did you go to school at?

Agreed. Establish the run successfully to set up PA, not the other way around imo. This team is not built to pass-first..........or run first for that matter, hell I don't know what this offense is built for.

How exactly does passing the ball 80-90% of the time slow down the pass rush?

I think you're mistaking what he said for, "I think in two weeks our first quarter or first couple of drives against Houston should be 80-90% pass, we have to slow down Mario Williams and there pass rush."

Although he put the two sentences together, he did separate them with a period.

He means that we should throw the ball 80-90% of the time, therefore, we HAVE to slow down their pass rush.

I agree with him.

Our predictable style is not working. We lead the league in 3 n' outs.

We have to at least try and make the other team think we will pass a lot, then we can mix in some runs after they have backed up up a bit.

Considering the fact that our passing game is the only way we have scored points this year (except for the Seattle game), it might just work.

We have to try SOMETHING.

Coffee scored a RSH TD against the falcons

Yes, that is true. But we got to the 3 yard line with a 70 yard pass play.

Let's put it this way, we are not "moving the chains" by running the ball, not even in the Seattle game.
