When are they going to learn that after sticking nine huge guys into the phone booth there's no room for the RB to squeeze through? I understand the concept of power but it would work a lot better if they spread out the D before trying to send big slow guys to move the pile. Defenses are too good at this level for the most part--submarine and create a pile.

Not to mention many are defensive players (don't have the blocking instincts) and Kilgore/L.Davis just get false start penalties 99% of the time and put us even more in a hole - and after that, it's not like we're going to pass in the RZ!
Cam is a friend of Jim's...maybe an exchange for next year?

I was thinking the same thing. It's a possibility. Passing game Coordinator?
I came to this realization by the end of last year: Roman is a great schemer but leaves a lot to be desired as a game day play-caller. We just can't seem to take that next step as an offense.

Cam was Jim's neighbor in SD and they were friends before that so quite a history with each other. Calling a game is an art form and Roman doesn't seem imbued with that particular talent.

So lets just bring in the guy who got fired for a schizophrenic offense.

I like it! But I prefer to trade Roman to the Ravens...seems only fair! Think of how he could slow down Flacco!

Way too conservative in the RZ. Jumbo package is s**t. Not getting playmakers like VD envolved. Running s**t plays on 3rd and one when you know you are going for it on 4th. Taking way to long to get playcalls in causing horrible timeouts. not making gametime adjustments. Bonehead gimmick calls at the worst times. He has left alot to be desired.

Im still firmly in the Norv Turner camp.

I dont care that he runs the coryell digit system. Him and Harbaughs playbooks coming together could be a match made in heaven. He also will never be a HC again so no worries of losing him.

I dont understand wtf tukuafu is doing in there. Guy cant block to save his life. Jumbo just isaint working. It worked last year when teams still werent sure how to adapt to it. Now that teams know we cant do s**t else but run from that formation, it gets stuft.

The staff is enamored of athletic guys and particularly athletic big guys. I understand the value of power but have always believed more in speed and quickness. You hit the guy first you have the advantage in moving him, but if you are not as quick you may be a good anchor but limited in moving the LOS. Just hate stacking guys up in a small area and hoping the whole pile will be moved two or three yards.

Gore does so well in hiding behind linemen and popping out through cracks...he would really be great in a spread out line. Tukuafu is better than L Davis though...who can't move out of his own shadow in under a day.
I really am liking this offensive plan thus far. I really don't think they expected us to go vertical like we are. Balanced run to pass. And if it weren't for lack of execution we would have this game wrapped up already.

I've been b***hing all week about not going vertical and using Kaep's arm. About time. I like what I'm seeing thus far. Really do.

Actually, I just thought about it.

If we would've lost, it would've been on our defense, not our offense.


I'm not a huge fan of Roman but HE WAS GOOD TODAY.

Kaep was just legendary, doe
