Here is a breakdown of each series from the 1st half
1st. 5 plays 2 pass 3 run results FG
1st play of the game incomplete pass to gore
2nd 3 plays 2 pass 1 run results punt
a short pass to morgan and a sack
3rd 3 plays 2 pass 1 run results punt
1st play a sack
4th 3 play 3 pass punt
again 1st play results in sack
5th 3 plays 2 pass 1 run
1st play 5yd loss on a pass play to gore
Every one of those series had 1 thing in common. Negative yards by either sack or bad pass. This is called execution people plain and simple. The majority of the problem is that we cant give alex the time to pass the ball in the 1st place. and even when given time he still is afraid to make a play. That check down to gore for a 5yd loss is all on alex there. This has nothing to do with being in the spread or not either because 6 of the 11 pass plays were out of the spread. This not a blame Alex either because he did better once GB went to Prevent D in the 2nd half.
Those that complain about being able to run like coach wants from us. Here's an interesting stat for you 24 for 129 and a TD. Not bad for a pass happy team. For those that dont know that what grant hit us for. 5 of the 9 plays for GB's 1st series was run. This is what coach wants from us. So agian it is more about execution and not being pass happy.
I still don't understand how or why we are getting gashed by the Run on D now but that has to be fixed. We still over pursuit the screens when we know that every team is going to screen us to death. But this is another topic. And no the D wasn't tired after 2 possessions of giving up huge gains by GB
