No, I figured he hadn't but I looked it up and no stats for passing when guys like Tomlinson have stats for passing. Anyways, for trick plays I am fine without them... I would be happy with just bootlegging or passing out of that heavy TE set. I am fine running out of it a majority of the time but it seems like we pass out of it 5 or less % of the time. Would like to see eligible OT's or the Tight Ends chip block (bump/fake block) and then go out for a pass. We seem too intent on pounding it down people's throats at times which is what Singletary would have done. Either way I have no idea why we regressed in the play calling department. We stopped with the slants that were working.. (granted every CB is different), we haven't thrown a RB screen in what seems like all year, more counters/tosses/sweeps, even draws which use to be a staple. Need to better utilize Hunter...not saying every time Gore is in you run up the middle and Hunter outside because that gives it away but mix them more. Also, why not try getting both those guys in the backfield at the same time? Or splitting them out wide to open it up and give the WRs better matchups.
