Just an observation. Most of our ranter brethren seem to think we run too much and don't pass enough. Seems like it hurts when we follow their opinions.
we have great running backs...that's not the problem.
The problem is we are PREDICTABLE....we telegraph our plays. This does not produce a good offense, hence our #74 NCAA ranking.
Believe it or not, you can run out of the shotgun and pass out of the I...our playcalling doesn't do enough to keep opposing defenses off-balance.
Nine out of 10 times, when we lined up in the Pistol, it was a toss play to Spencer Ware...for like 2 yards
Gary Crowton was better than what we have now...sorry guys. He wasn't the greatest, but when he hit a hot streak, he dialed up plays that worked...
Our offense works now primarily because we bulldoze weaker foes...In the Alabama game this year, we were agressive and had them on their heels, but we never replicated that in other games. Most of the time, I think they are scared to utilize Mettenberger, and it shows!
