I am not convinced. Raye consistently puts his offense in 3rd and long situations and this has been an issue going all the way back to the preseason. No more excuses. Put together a full game, call a decent game for god sakes, and show me don't tell me. Niner fans can't take much more of this flimsy offensive play-calling.
Whether it has been Hill or Smith, what has remained constant is third and long and Jimmy Raye.
I agree, we need to see the O open up, no more excusess and no more fullback runs on 2nd and 20. Every Qb throws int's it is part of the game and Uncle fester needs to just trust in Alex and let him throw the ball. Also we need to mix in some mis-direction plays and more runs to the outside. Our O-line is not the huge brusing type, but it is athletic, so let them pull and run Frank on the edges sometimes. This is frusterating because for the first time in a long time we actually have the tools on offense to do the things we are all talking about, but Raye seems to timid to use the wepons we have. Let's hope that in this next game with the Titans pass D being so weak we open it up and really put it on them. PEACE FROM THE FAN.
