Obviously, Franks has hurt both legs, or he has concrete blocks tied to his ankles. So, why so many zone reads with him keeping the ball? He rarely made more than two yards. Such callin’ kills drives. What’s up with that?
Is our whole offense in, or are those plays all we are proficient with yet–just barely?
But on the positve side, no QB’s in the redzone and no cutesy plays featuring Wrong Way you know who. I think the wind probably had a pretty big effect on both team’s passing games. That was probably to our advantage.
Play calling is only as good as the execution. You can be in the play that the game plan calls for and if the qb makes the wrong read or someone misses a block or assignment you look like the Replacements. Some of the calls were brilliant and there were new wrinkles that looked promising. A number of plays also flopped. I get frustrated too when things go bad, but it’s rarely because of the play call. More often it’s execution.
Definitely not the prettiest offensive game, but it seemed our run blocking did not allow much running room, so a lot of improvising was required by our backs. Pass blocking was better, if Franks was a little quicker to react, it may have looked even better.
