We need to break this one tendency offensively…


Recommended Posts

I’ve watched Frank call plays for 4 yrs now… the last 3 yrs ( post Andrew era) I’ve noticed EVERY 2nd down call is an inside zone to the left either from the gun or single back…  now that’s me noticing this from cbs/fox  broadcast.. I know opposing DCs are keying  in on this with even more detail.  This is why we stall out so much in the course of a game. We are and have been extremely predictable on the first 2 downs which kills our 3rd  down efficiency.  This i believe will open up our offense considerably.. this was not a problem with Andrew was here which is why offense was the way it was.. let’s give Carson the same strategy and I’m sure we see a totally different offense

I can't remember where I read it (probably Twitter), but I remember seeing something about how Reich is statistically one of the most predictable playcallers on 2nd down, so that lines up with what you're seeing.

I've noticed the same thing.  To the point where on 2nd down I say, here's a one yard run.  If the O line is fully healthy, it's probably a decent play call.

 

I'm not sure statistically if that's accurate or we just notice it when it happens though.  I don't have a problem running on 2nd and long, but like you said, it's a low percentage run when it's the same spot.

I’m sure Frank is a phenomenal headcoach and the players play their hearts out for him, but he needs to hand off playcalling to Brady. I haven’t really thought too much about his playcalling these past few seasons but it has really stood out this year - it’s bad.
