Run the Darn Ball!

Recommended Posts

I’ve seen it all season long. We’ll have the lead, come out passing on 1st and 2nd second down trying to get cute, go into 3rd and long and punt it away. It’s getting pretty old at this point. We’ve got one of the better run blocking lines in the league. Why wouldn’t you at least get the clock running and give the defense a rest?! Especially when we’re struggling to stop the opposition!!!

 I thought they’d run it twice at 3rd and 2 but maybe they saw something they could exploit but didn’t execute.

When Pagano would run on 1st and 2nd down everyone complained.  These are NFL coaches making decisions on the fly with way more information than we have.  I trust their judgment to make the right call.  The real reason it isn’t working is bc we aren’t very good

They scout each team weeks before they play them. If your scouts and the film does not indicate the strength and weakness of each team then Frank should not be a coach

You realize Tampa is the number 2 run defense? We averaged 3 yards a carry. They are last in passing defense and you want to exploit the weakness.

I’m sure they scouted and saw the #2 run defense in the NFL.  Like I said, they have more information than the people around here.

I was basically saying if your coach cannot find a weakness of each team and exploit it and changing things when it is not working and quit being stubborn. and yes you do not r

keep running up the middle on the 2nd ranked defense in the running dept

I can understand the early game script passing, but not after the first few series. Should have had a better mix... 

BUT... anyone who expected us to run a lot vs the second best rush D (who also has the 2nd worst pass D) isn't really being logical. We should have torched them in the passing game. We didn't. We lost.

Two touchdown lead and didnt eat the clock up. Mind boggling.

^This, yeah I didn’t think they would take Mack out of the game and run a no back formation....

Mudd should’ve never came back here. I questioned his philosophy when running the damn ball.

    • After Day 1, you'd think we'd need to move up in the draft to get ANYONE.
    • Yes, oddly guys like Pinkney, Okwuegbunam, and McKeon (Michigan) all digressed as receivers last season compared to seasons before.     I think Hopkins can also be a stud, and you're right, he's going to have to test well to move himself up in the draft.   A couple small(er) school guys I like are: (1) Harrison Bryant (FAU) who had 61 receptions last year and at 6'5", 240 lbs and a 4.7 forty, he seems like with some NFL coaching could be something special,  (2) Matt Bushman (BYU) had 49 receptions as a sophomore, 29 as a junior, 47 as a senior and has good size at 6'5" 245 lbs and speed (4.7 forty), and (3) Adam Trautman (Dayton) who had 70 receptions and 14 TDs last year and is a 6'6", 250+ lbs guy who runs around a 4.7.         I think the biggest weakness in Kmet's game is his speed.  He's listed as a 4.85 forty.  He's got the size, the strength, the hands and the 'football player' things going for him.. he seems to play faster than that, but it is never easy to judge against college competition compared to the NFL.  Regardless, I think he's gonna be a very good NFL player.     For the Colts, though, with Doyle already in place... I think we'd almost be better off with a faster guy who can almost by a hybrid WR/TE (which Ebron kind of was in year 1 in Indy).
    • Seriously, I really don't think Ballard would pass on him either. Dude is elite.
    • That's no joke, I think if somehow he fell to the Jags the pick would be in before the clock started
    • Since Kinlaw was gone, this made some sense, but I still think Love at 13 is reaching at this point in time.  Will see what he does at Sr. Bowl and Combines.
