That's why it's important to be consistent with the blame.
I thought our playcalling was garbage against Green Bay. Nobody cared. "But we won the game".
Ok, great, so what happened the next few weeks? Next week we do nothing
in Seattle. And the week after than we do nothing
against the Colts at home.
It's easy to be critical when we are losing, but it's hard to call it like it is when we are winning.
On the positive note, our scheme has improved slightly. We don't continue the endless shifting, shifting, shifting, motion, shifting, audible, motion, shifting, like we did in game one and three.
We still do far too much cute stuff, and Kap is forced to work from the pistol too often, but we did a lot more IForm against the Rams, which helped us a lot. We ran some NORMAL play action out of it, but still we tried to run some read option garbage. It is still hurting us.
I recognized all of this from the first game, which was a win, because I don't care if it's a win or a loss, I try and call it like it is.
