Well here we are, may as well top this as it's got most of the thinking in it.
Once again the opposing defense stuffed the box to stop the run on our obvious run plays. Yet we continued to run Gore up the gut on 1st down - often with miller in there as a big neon sign to tell the defense where we were going.
On our obvious pass plays, the defense went man coverage, doubling Vernon. We continued to go with one designated "AR" (annointed receiver) with the other receivers running decoys or blocking. Examples: the 2 TD's and the Baldwin drop, there was only one read on those designed plays - Kap did miss an open Boldin in the endzone on one play,. but more and more I am sure he is being coached to throw to his first read and trust them to make a play. Example: the incompletion to Baldwin, but he didn't even know he was getting the ball it seems.
We continued with deep dropbacks in our own 20 on obvious pass plays when our Oline couldn't hold the rush. Again we gave up a sack with a rusher coming through the middle untouched.
Again no signs of slants or screens. No check down or safety throw for Kap, except Miller on one occasion but he's not a receiving threat.
We continued with 2TE, 2backs and 1WR sets with abysmal play calling.
We continued trying to adjust late before the snap. We had that horrible motion play that utterly failed with 3 people in motuion to the same point, which we then ran at for no gain.
Our offense was so predictable that the NO defense (as have others) were signalling where the ball was going before we snapped and blowing it up.
And oh yes, we continued to not make any adjustments at all.
Einstein's definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
