Jay Roland

have a question about game against Ravens

5 posts in this topic

After letting the loss set in i have a question. On the 4th & 1 where we got the pass intercepted why did we call a formation with no RB? it seems to me that it showed the Ravens it was a pass play all the way and they could put more men in coverage that way. If we had at least a RB they had to respect the fact we might run it. If we could have scored there the game may or may not have turned out different but it was just a moment to me that i just don't understand. can anyone explain to me why that formation was called.

Good question.

 

I think they've called "all in" to score at least 1 TD and tried to call an aggressive passing play. There was nothing to loose, too bad it failed. At that time Ravens succeeded almost anything, and we didn't. I think an Arians-like long passing play'd made more sense, but just my 2 cents.

i suspect you'd have to call Clyde Christensen for an answer to that question. ;)

Exactly. Clyde was calling the plays and that play call was pretty dumb.

 

I guess we had been telegraphing the run all day, so he probably figured, heck why not the pass too?

In theory it is supposed to force the Ravens to play Man to Man across the board and exploit a blitz package to "the big play."  Our line was not equipped to handle their 'man' responsibilities even without going empty backfield....thus Luck probably forced the issue like he and other rookies have done many times before.  I am trying to visualize that specific play......whether Luck did force it...or aim it as I like to say.

 

If someone can capture and post we could discuss even more as to actual blocking assignments etc.????   :thmup:

    • So sorry for your loss.  I like to think James now has the best seats to watch the games along with others who have gone before him.  
    • Denver got lot of compensatory picks but I think they actually lost, considering what could've been. If the cutoffs had been more favorable, if Okung contract would have counted as just 1 yr, 5M deal, they could've gotten   3rd 3rd 4th 7th   Instead, they got   3rd 5th 7th 7th
    • Glad to see the Pacers win last night. It was very much needed with the losing streak and the PG talk. We will make the Playoffs but probably wont do much once there. Lets not kid ourselves though as in the big picture of things the Warriors are going to spank everyone including the Cavs. Cavs will come out of the East but have a less of a chance of beating the Warriors this season than last. Cavs had their 1 year miracle, got a Title for Cleveland but to think they will beat the Warriors 2 years in a row is a stretch. Warriors will have HCA again and they now have Durant to go with the other 3. LeBron is only 3-4 in Finals play as well. He dominates a weal Eastern Conference but against the West his teams are below .500 in the Finals. My money is on the Warriors, LeBron just doesn't have that unbeatable invincible factor that Michael Jordan had being 6-0 in Finals. Jordan is the GOAT and it's not even debatable and Magic ruled the 80's when rough Basketball was aloud. The stuff Draymond Green is doing now, players in the 80's would laugh it off. This generation of players are way too pampered.
    • ALL RBs are luxury picks. One of the most overrated and useless positions, as is Safety. Look at how badly DeMarco Murray flopped after leaving the Cowboys.   I'd even take an elite Kicker or Punter over an elite RB any day.
    •   Thanks for that. I have no problem drafting for need. Actually I lean that way.   But most people here are strongly for drafting BPA, but when they were making selections, the players drafted mostly addressed needs. (Not always but in much of the picks.) Even in the first round, whenever we had to make a concensus pick, we asked ourselves what the team's needs were as opposed to "who the BPA is". So, I just wondered if people truly believed in drafting BPA as opposed to drafting BPA at a position of need.
