I think getting Tony G. might have been a mistake

Ryan was way better before he got here, spread the ball out more to his WRs. I remember when Ryan actually used to step up in the pocket and sling the ball down-field back in 2008. I wish that Ryan would come back.

Because what Ryan did back then used to spread Defenses out, and it opened up the Running Game for Turner. It made the Offense function better. All we do now is throw to Roddy and Tony, and Defenses are keying in on it.

I love Gonzo, but we should not be throwing to him as much as we do. He should only be a situational receiver, not a 2nd target.

Harry Douglas and Weems are actually very good WRs. We should use them more.

I agree. It was ridiculous how obvious they were trying to force TG's 1000 rec.

Then maybe you should coach the team

He targeted him 5 times all game, Roddy 23. You wouldn't say keeping Roddy was a mistake, would you? The problem is Mularkey, Mularkey, Mularkey.

Where are all these wide open receivers? No where. Sure there were a couple times, but no more than any other team has. It's the scheme. You don't dump a player because he's too good.

The other receivers need to rise up, get open and prove to Matt they can make the catch.

Matt needs to scream lalalalalalala, when Mularkey calls plays in his ear.

I agree Mularkey has got to go.

Ive never heard getting a offensive weapon is a mistake...lol.. we only target Tony G 5 or 6 times sunday...

The problem is we need better play calling and Matt has to spread the ball around. HD is a explosive WR.... Weems is also (in the slot) ... Jenks should be back this week... We need to spread the ball around.

Someone explain to me how our 2008 Offense ran so much better, and more fluidly, than ever since then?

Ryan was a rookie, but he lit it up. He stepped up in the pocket under pressure and launched it downfield. He doesnt do that any more. He just checks down to Tony all the time. He doesnt even make his 3rd or 4th read any more. It's either his 1st Read or it's Tony. That's what our passing game is reduced to now.

Has no-one seen this? Really?

Ever think it was because Ryan was a rookie, no one knew what Turner was about, and it was a whole new team/coaching staff/head office? The simple answer here is game tape. Teams didn't have it then and they do now. Couple that with a complete lack of ingenuity in opening up our offense and you get the piss poor results you are now witnessing.

Weaker schedule and suprising teams because of lack of film on us. It happens like that for most first year head coaches. The ones that stick around for years or become highly coveted are those that can still keep adjusting and surprising people despite the amount of film adjustement oppostion makes.

This is something sean payton, bill belicheck Brian billick (as an O coordinator for the vikings), Al Saunders, the coach of the chargers and others are all able to acheieve.

No Tony = No back to back winning seasons. We couldn't replace his 80+ receptions(not to mention the game winner in NYJ).

Roddy set a career high in catches vs Pitt. Think Tony had anything to do with that? The Steelers doubled Tony most of the game. They were determined to make someone other than Turner or Tony beat them. Roddy did his best, but he came up about 1 yard and a half short. Bottom line is if we are targeting him too much it is the fault of Ryan- and yes that was an issue last season. But overall he has been a vital part of this team since his arrival.

Honestly... You posted pretty much the exact same topic a mere hour and a half before you posted this one. There's no doubt your threads are the message board equivalent of junk mail - as useless as they are infinite. Unfortunately, this forum lacks any semblance of a spam blocker.

lol

Tony is a Beast

All I know is that this Offense was very effective before Tony G. got here. And since then it has gone down-hill. The passing game has suffered, the Running game has suffered. The Offense is basically 4 plays:

1. Hand off to Turner up the middle

2. Throw to Roddy

3. Throw to Tony G.

4. Punt

what would you rather,

3. Throw to??? deep bomb every time?

agreed we should change it up, but he has helped more than he has hurt, ESPECIALLY when HD went down

I quoted this to say that I have always had a crush on Gabriel Union... Man if I lived near her the neighborhood watch would have to work overtime! Kidding but she is still gorgeous.
