I think you guys have nailed it.....

Unread postby pod2dawg » Sun Oct 28, 2012 9:14 pm

...After extensive consultations with the brilliant football minds at my disposal I have concluded while appreciating the "lock-out" hangover, roster deplete of talent when the Walrus arrived, the Walrus, rookies, new staff ,detached ownership, staff depotism, injuries,untimely penalties, dropped balls, = drafts etc , the OVERWHELMING flaw in the present regime is in fact our predictibilty.

All teams "weather" many of the above, but as had been previously pointed out in another thread by Lead or Pup, these teams look at at our formation, factor in down & distance and know what is coming 70% of the time ( excluding the double reverse calls in a hurricane as we are methodically running the ball down their throat). We aren't usually able to out talent anyone so we have to out scheme people or at least keep people off balance until we fill in our holes for CFS!

And Coach Turner...time for you to go too. That coaching display today was frightening from both sides. ::doh::

Someone said in another thread that Shurmy's playbook has 4 plays in it.

It wouldn't shock me.

IPhone let you down? Totally agree. Shurmer has to win 7 in order to keep his job this season. Here's the main thing I keep telling people. Jimmy Haslam spent 1 BILLION DOLLARS of his own money to buy this team. Do you really think he is going to let a guy that he doesn't trust run it? No. Shurmer is gone. Thank God.

Richardson up the middle
Drag route to the TE or Greg Little
Screen to Obi
Bomb to Gordon

Watch the game and tell me that isn't 95% of the offense, because it is.

Hats off to Shurminator for getting all nostalgic and bringing back cool trends from the 80's

It's like the team is improving but the coaching isn't.

Wouldn't you stick to four plays if going outside the box resulted in things like the 2nd & 4 double reverse?

That play was a good call, the flip just sucked. Happens.

Can't agree. They were 10-12 yards from the line of scrimmage when the flip happened. Running sideline to sideline, he would've had to cover a lot of ground just to get back to the LoS even if the flip were perfect, and Benji's speed would've been somewhat negated by the mushy turf. Unless they're playing in a dome, they need to shelve that play for eternity.

The only way I like that play is if Travis was gonna throw the ball.

That was the perfect call for a Middle School coach. Or some kid playing Madden. At that point in the game Richardson had 58 yards in 7 attempts. It's raining - the field is wet, the ball is wet, and it's not as if you're having trouble running the ball straight at the defense. So what do you do? Call some sandlot double reverse to a guy who was listed as questionable with a hamstring throughout the week.

Paraphrasing the old line from Dr. Science - There is a thin line between ignorance and arrogance. Coach Shurmur erases that line.

Again, I'm no expert but if I were going to throw the quick slant 75 times a game I would "coach up" my rookie Right Tackle to chop the end to avoid throwing the ball off the DE's hands...over...and over again.
