Why don't we throw to set up the run?

We obviously aren't getting any push from our line and people are stacking the box on first down.

Why don't we do what the Colts do? Ryan has done really well whenever Mularkey has let him throw the ball, so I don't know why we aren't throwing it more on first down.

Wasn't the first play a screen to Finn for 12 yards? I know the pass was a first down result, just can't remember the yards.

I don't think he is talking about a screen. He is talking about airing it out. Getting enough yards to make them back off. We don't have Harrington, we can stop dinking and dunking for crying out loud.

We are. Look at the play by play.

9 passes, 10 rushes for 37 yards, or a 3.7 ypc on first down. You'd like that avg to be a little higher, but if you could tell Coach Smith he could have 2nd and 6 on every series he'd take that in a heartbeat.

ide like to throw the ball more as well. in the beginning, teams are already set to stop Turner. we know this is what everyone will be doing. so why not start out the game throwing the ball? basically, take what the defense gives us. we have a good offense to where we can throw or run the ball. defenses cant defend both at the same time effectively.

Dink'n and dunk'n :lol::lol:

Yeah right! I just mentioned the first play of the game mind you and I would take a completion on the first pass play then a deep incomplete pass any day just to boost the confedence level and knock out the jitters. I've heard that so many times from the experts (ex-coaches calling the games) over the years that it should be common knowladge by now :ph34r:

But what ever B)
