Im with you on that... Im tired of the gimmicks as well.
Let's quit running plays that work and go back to that other crap that doesn't.
Plays that work. That's a good one.
We have a line full of guys who can't get to the second level. We run a scheme that requires specialists and athletes that we have to project as being able to pass block and possess good wheels at the same time.
MAYBE if we possessed anyone in the FO that could effectively and consistently project a college player into a role that like (or on defense, a DE to an OLB in a 3-4 scheme), I'd feel differently.
Zone read doesn't wear the other team out like smash mouth does, and it requires a lighter O linemen, so it makes it harder to pass block and get those short yardage gains with any real consistency.
There's a reason not many people run that zone run scheme anymore.
rskin72: Wonder who else was injured today. Schreff….

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.

Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.

rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
