i don't know if it is jimmy rae, or bigMike, or whoever, but somebody gets an F- for getting our plays in to alex(shaun) with very little if any time left. Obviously our OC can't call 2 plays at the same time, let alone 3. He , or whoever is in charge of calling the play and getting it to alex, needs to have his butt kicked to get his calls in immediately. Obviously what is happening, is that JR is not able to quickly figure out what play to call based on the down, yard line, and situation. You would think an OC would have a list of plays to call for different situations, yet our OC gets plays to the Qb with just seconds to spare, or like last 3-4 games, gets plays in so late that the QB has to burn a Timeout, or worse, we get penalized 5 yds...and sometimes, on back to back plays.
I won't make any comments on our OCs playcalling. I will say he is not giving our QBs a fair shot to see the D, survey the field, and make any changes as necessary, because JR can't get the plays in on time. He may or may not be a good or even excellent OC...but not getting the plays in...CONSISTENTLY...until the last moment is getting to the point where he either has to improve or he needs to be replaced. What he is doing now puts our qB at a huge disadvantage, with just enough time(or not) to get to the line and call the snap count. The D knows when the ball will be hiked and can tee off on our QBs, because, the ball is almost always snapped with 1 or 2 seconds to go...and that just won't cut it.
Maybe JR's mind just works slowly, maybe the call has to be okayed by bigMike...heck i don't know what is going on. But i do know this. Both the Manning boys, Brady, Rothlesberger...all get to the line with plenty of time. We don't , and if bigMike wants to correct a huge goof up, here is a great place to start.
