Im not sure there is a fix right now other than to just open it up and let everything go, and if we improve fine, if not, it cant get any worse.
Gore should get 20+ carries every game. And really he should be getting closer to 25. Anything less than 20 is unacceptable. He should also be seeing at least 5 targets in the passing game each week. Anything less is unacceptable.
My perspective, on a part of the big problem is that we are having interior offensive line issues, our tackles have been playing pretty decent with the pass rusher ever great now and then beating them off of the edge. I think the team has taken many steps in correcting the overall issue with the interior of their offensive line in trades and through the draft that will improve the offense immensely. If the interior offensive line can stop the incoming inside pass rushing, adding one more second to be able to get the ball off is priceless. Just a little thinking outside of the box, a WR on average runs a 4.5/4.6 40, 1 second would equal to say 8 yards of clearance and for them to beat the coverage, that should statistically improve this offense very well, just from an analytic scenario my way kind of thinking, lol. I think if the interior of the offensive line can get a lot better, coupled with better WRs this year, I think this offense can really open up and be a huge strength on the team. I keep hoping.....If they are thinking of releasing Baldwin, they may want to see how he performs with the new team mates in place, it might opens things up for him a little. While he is not someone with blazing speed, he might provide a nice option. Would be nice if things can turn around for him like that.
