Is our offense playoff ready or do we need some serious help.

we need to sign a fa wr if available and draft 2 more, also find oline help and freaking learn to pick up damn blitzes. if we have to play in the loud superdome our oline is beyond f**ked. i can say qb is not our offense's problem anymore, its the oline, wrs, and to an extent some head scratching play calling at times
If Vernon doesn't drop a sure TD pass, it's 33-0. I'd say that's good enough to win in the playoffs. Alex would've been well over 300 yds, too. It was against the Rams, but it was a solid win and the defense totally stifled them. Kyle Williams had an excellent game...showed some very good speed on the TD, ditto Crabtree. Any issues he and Alex had sure look to be history.
Our run game has to get back on track. St Louis's run defense is awful and other than the reverses we really didn't get it going. Passing attack is looking alot better now with Crabtree and Williams emerging.
The thing that worries me the most about our offense at this point in the season is:

false starts and delay of games.


These things are momentum killers and really could be our achilles heal in the playoffs.
We def have problems like every other team in the league does. But as far as what they can do this year is start taking advantage of plays downfield. Atleast twice a game there a recievers that have beatin the corner down field by a couple steps and the ball is overthrown and we settle for 3 instead of the quick strike. If they can get that fixed the sky is the limit.
The red zone offense is pretty bad. Too many FG's and not enough TD's. I don't know if we are ready for Green Bay or New Orleans in the playoffs. But it's been a fun year. And our offense although maligned is probably not as bad as imagined.
we really need to catch the damn ball and have more big plays(williams today)after the catch
Really crappy redzone play calling. To many dropped passes and to many off target passes. run game has regressed the last 3 weeks. Very poor offensive line play sacks,holds, false starts, pressure and not enough running lanes open. The o-line play and the really bad dropped passes are the biggest problem as of right now. Roman does seem to go into some kind of play calling shell in the red zone.
seems like we move the ball real well until we get into the redzone then it seems the play calling changes into a conservative mode.

Bolded for truth
Why are the choices "Playoff Ready" or "Serious Help"?

Alex is playing amazingly well. TE's are well-rounded and playing well. The RBs are playing well. The Oline is generally solid, but struggles against elite rushers. And the WRs need to work on drops.

Nothing about that requires "serious help".

Scary to think this is a 12-14 win team with room for improvement.

Yeah i know, we have too many FG's and not enough TD's. Do u think that we have bad offense score but seem like normal. So, We have a great defense so far and lucky have PWillis for Beast defense. I thinks, Possible can beat the New Orleans in the playoff. I am very sick about Green Bay for offense too dangerous!! We need tell PWillis must hurt the Green Bay for Offense scores. We need hard hits them on QB and WRs when they will plays down for sure that possible get to win for us.

Red Zone man. We can get there but we need more TDs. I'm hoping they're saving some calls for the playoffs, but it seems our playcalling down there is very bland. If our Red Zone offense gets it together we can make some serious serious noise.
red zone playcalling fix it

It's more playcalling. We don't even try down there. We go into a shell, hide and become ultra conservative. I don't think that will work in the playoffs.
