We can no longer call the game offensively, how we have over the first 5 weeks and expect to win. Its an aberation that we have been able to win a few games, despite repeatedly telling the other team what we are going to do every play.
BOTTOM LINE, we can't line up half the game with 1 wr sets (for obvious runs) and then switch to empty backfields (for obvious passes) and expect to have success on those plays. we need to create at least some sense in the defense's mind that this play could be a pass downfield, a swing pass, or an interior run...right now they are keying off every play....and unless the play calling advances from pop warner, we will be looking at a dissapointing slide from a fortunate start.
and if we happen to get another lead this season, WE CAN'T RUN the same play up the middle for the entire 4th qtr and expect to hold the lead.
The problem is that SingRaye believe that it doesn't matter if other teams know the play or not, because we should be able to execute regardless. Caveman mentality at it's finest. And we wonder why we were unprepared against Atlanta. If you can't outsmart your opponent in this league from time to time, you aren't going anywhere. This isn't Tecmo Bowl, this is the NFL.
