Who knew that having 2- 5 offensive coordinators was an extremely weird and born-to-fail approach? The answer is all of us who mocked this idea during the offseason. I don’t want a pat on the back for calling that the idea of multiple offensive coordinators was destined to fail. It wasn’t that hard to see coming.
I want to do bring up my issues with the game plan in a bulleted format to keep it concise.
- Why can’t Tua keep the ball on any of the handoffs? He’s mobile enough to fake it and run the other way just once.
- Tua doesn’t have the strongest arm in the league. Nobody with a brain would argue that. But he can throw a football 50 yards. I coach high school football and my 5’7 QB can throw it 45 yards without any issue.
- Speaking of, why are there never any routes headed down the field? Is it all because of the offensive line? You trade up for Jaylen Waddle and you made him Jarvis Landry. Very dumb thing to do.
- Why not have Tua roll out more? If the line stinks, and it does, why not get him more on the perimeter?
- DeVante Parker had a very good first half and what do you do? Naturally, go away from him in the second half.
- I don’t know maybe not be so predictable. Short pass on 1st, run on 2nd, short pass on 3rd. That’s the offense.
- Good thing you schemed open Mike Gesicki. It would have been a shame to try and get him the ball.
- Whatever you do, don’t even think of running any kind of trick play or anything like that. If you do that, then you’re taking away an opportunity to run another hitch or comeback
I’m sure there are more I can mention but these are the ones that are sticking out in my mind. The offense is the most vanilla, boring, predictable offense of all time and instead of trying something new, these dopes pedal out the same nonsense week after week. No creativity, no adjusting, just the same identityless approach. I guess we’re an RPO team but I can’t even be sure of that.
