how many runs up the middle before sing figures this out?
Wasn't it Sing that said we were going to be a run first team? Why is J-Raye getting all the blame for this, I see it as his hand is forced by the HC...
Because it's not just "run-first mentality" that's the problem. It's the types of runs we have.
We don't do any sweeps, no counters, nothing off tackle. It's all dives up the middle, or off-guard. And that's directly on the o-coordinator.
but what if the Head Coach is telling the OC that Frank Gore is going to get ALL the carries unless he gets injured...
I like Gore but the coaching staff obviously doesn't think he can run sweeps and other runs that might require him to be agile.
I think this goes back to Sing just being stubborn, I mean why aren't we sharing EVEN a small part of our carries with Dixon or Westbrook?
I think Raye is forced to adjust his playcalling based on the limitations Sing has put on this team's offensive personal and gameday strategy.
