We ran that play once against GB. I was thinking for sure it was gonna be a run (so did the Packers D), but it was a pass. I liked that Raye was trying something but I woud've preferred a pitch to the left.
You can see everybody shifting that way expecting a run--if we'd gone the other way it could've been sweet.
I formation with 1 reciever split right. Like OnTheClock said, that is the most obvious running formation one could ever put out there.
Refresh my memory, as I was too busy wanting to puke, who did Smith end up throwing to on that play? I could be wrong, but I'll bet it was someone on the weak side where the coverage would have been strongest.
I believe it was a quick out to Morgan that was incomplete.
I agree with you BTW that a HB toss to the left could have been money.
We even have the personnel in for it. FB goes around the left side and picks up the first defender and it's nothing but green grass ahead of Gore.
This play has worked for us very well, especially when we run.
THIS play, Morgan was open for 3 yards but Alex overlooked him and came back to him as Morgan was almost out of bounds and the DB jumped on it knowing Smith was running out of room also.
It was a bad read by Smith. This play has been primarily designed for Morgan for a quick 3 or 5 yards but Smith, as usual, looks deep first and as usual misses the open man.
